Ruth Corbin may be forty-two but as one
of the few surviving women on the remains of planet Earth
she is highly sought after. She has made it through a war
and a meteor strike but will she be able to avoid capture by
the bands of roaming men and the government “copperheads”
(elite engineered police, who do not fail at their jobs)?
More importantly will she want to escape this particular
copperhead, or does she have a use for Bill Jackal that just
might benefit them both?
Ms. Marquis takes a different look at
the future in Scorched Earth. Women are so
scarce now that they have to be careful of being caught not
only by the government, but roving bands of men, if they
want to have any say in what their future is. I found
Scorched Earth to be interesting and even a bit
of a thought provoking read. Now don’t get me wrong there
are a number of super hot scenes between Ruth and Bill.
What can you say when you have a genetically engineered man
who knows what he wants, and will play by whatever rules he
needs to, to ensure the future of his dreams? I look
forward to more futuristic/Sci-Fi stories from Ms. Marquis.
