Inhaltsangabe zu "Beauty and His Beast"

They call him Marrex the Monster.

Deformed and wretched, Captain Marrex roams the black of space with only a pair of eccentric AIs for company. The curse in his DNA means a long, bitterly lonely life for the Ghelyxian, and it’s a fate Marrex knows he can’t change.

After a long sleep in stasis, Juniper Bo wakes to discover he’s an unwelcome guest aboard Captain Marrex’s ship. Though he tries to stay away from the surly Ghelyxian, he just doesn’t get why the curse is such a big deal—then again, Juniper knows his tastes are rather… unusual for a Human.

When friendship blooms between Marrex and Juniper, they realize they face a future that neither could have predicted in their wildest dreams.

    Kurzmeinung: A cute, sexy sci-fi take on the fairy tale classic.
    Cute and sexy take on the fairy tale

    Captain Marrex finds a stasis pod with a human inside a decrepit ship. His ship AIs S1N and VAL free the young human, Juniper. Marrex isn't happy with the intrusion, since he's been living alone on the gigantic ship for a hundred years, feeling too ugly for much contact after his "curse".
    But the boy doesn't seem to mind his beast-like appearance and is actively seeking him out and making himself agreeable.

    This is an adorable sci-fi take on the old fairy tale classic. It is a relatively short story, so there's not a lot of world building and the plot is rather foreseeable, since it follows the original reasonable close (with an extra helping of horrible sisters).
    But Juniper and Marrex are very likeable and sympathetic characters and I liked how their relationship slowly evolved. The AIs, one a disembodied, color-changing head, the other a black cat, provide some fun and comic relieve.
    The drama felt a bit over the top, but in keeping with the fairy tale theme and not entirely unbelievable. I very much liked Junipers reaction in the end.
    All in all it is a heartwarming and very sexy story (the inter-species sex in here is really awesome).
