Anno 2354. Earth’s government had a breakthrough in their top secret research project Life Tree. They’ve created perfect soldiers whose abilities exceed scientists’ expectations, thanks to the predator sequence in their DNA. Now project Life Tree is entering phase two, genetic reproduction of the Master Trooper.

Betrayed by her boyfriend and sentenced to penal servitude for drug possession, Larona finds herself among several other women en route to the convict colony on Mars. Turns out it’s not Mars they land on, but planet Terra Alpha, where the women are to be part of a research project.

There, Larona is chosen for program INBREED – she’s to bear the child of a Master Trooper. Her body is no longer hers, but a possession of Life Tree. Upon meetingTorn, who seems to have no qualms about carrying out Life Tree’s orders, Larona is absolutely desperate…

Torn has proven himself as above-average in combat and every test. That’s why he was chosen for program INBREED – to pass on his genes – a task others envy him for because it means luxury in between tours: vacation time, good food, and clean women.

Torn never had any reason to doubt Life Tree, and especially INBREED is a duty he enjoys. To him, women just serve to satisfy a bodily need… but it’s different with Larona. When she tries to kill herself, Torn starts to question Life Tree. Because he’s developing feelings for Larona that he, as a Master Trooper, isn’t even supposed to have…


“Please… don’t… don’t hurt me,” I whimper.

“You just drowned a cocktail that would knock even me out… yet you’re afraid that I am going to hurt you?”

I wonder about the heat and vegetation of the planet. The road we take is framed by jungle. There used to be places on Earth that looked like this. Today, there are barely any trees left… only in a number of nature and climate parks. People on Earth wouldn’t survive without artificial oxygen plants.

“Beautiful, isn’t it?” Dr. Barner asks with a smile, guessing my thoughts correctly. “We brought saplings from Earth to plant our own vegetation. Now we don’t need oxygen plants anymore.”

“You mean… the planet is alive?”

She nods. “Terra Alpha is a self-sustaining ecosystem. Like Earth used to be.”

I see a cluster of houses on our left. Bungalows surrounded by a garden. It almost looks like a holiday resort.

“We’re almost there.” Dr. Barner sighs. “The Troopers are in the field for four months, then two months on vacation. Those chosen for program INBREED are staying in these bungalows and are given a partner during that time. The rest are taking their vacation time in Sector B.”

“Sector B?”

She shakes her head. “Not important. We don’t have much time… You need to listen carefully, Larona.”

I nod because I don’t have another option. Everything she tells me could be vital. “This isn’t Torn’s first time with INBREED. However, you should not agitate him. In stressful situations… Troopers tend to have non-human reactions.”

“Stressful situations?” I inquire fearfully.

“Sexual arousal… Defiance… They are men with a part of very primal DNA, after all. They dominate their partners.” She gives me a pointed look. “That’s why we tested you in the shuttle, do you understand? We want to avoid any kind of stress.”

Shit! Why didn’t I kick and scream while I still had the chance?
