Dymon’s Lair is a science fiction novel where the crew of the Fallon’s Angel takes refuge in our solar system. They’re aliens being hunted and their ship needs repairing. In order to fix their vessel and return home, they must work with Dymon, who is an evil man with the intention on stopping at nothing to rule the world.

This novel is heavy on rapes and graphic violence. Dymon’s employees are consistently being raped, which, to me, would be unrealistic to continue to work for him, no matter the cost, yet they do. It also relies mostly on the dialogue, rather than the narrative, so it was very difficult for me to visualize anything. However, the little bit of dialogue we’re given does do well in showing the reader what’s happening. There was some humor in the story, albeit corny or cheesy.

The characters were one-dimensional. I would have enjoyed more detail to them rather than having to rely on the dialogue.

This story had a lot of potential: fast-paced, twists and originality. If it had less graphic violence, more detail to the narrative, particularly where the aliens were concerned, I probably would have given it a higher rating. However, that’s not to say other fans of this genre wouldn’t enjoy this story.

Overall Rating: 3 out of 5
