    "Definitely a different book but not so great. Even alien races can fall in love in the same gender. You should only take a look at this book if you are really get bored and try to read something totally different."

    "I really liked the concept of Steel Beneath the Skin. I was looking for a scifi book that followed the Ghost in the Shell family of thought and this filled the bill. There are heavy lesbian themes in the character development so you'll want to be aware of that when making your buying choice."

    "As someone who loves rock operas and sci-fi series, I had to read Steel Beneath the Skin from the Aneka Jansen series. It is an epic tale interwoven with humanity and passion and the struggle to succeed in a dystopian world filled with bravado and challenges to the human spirit. I was so happy to have found this series."

    "Steel Beneath the Skin is part 1 of a 7 book series. It follows the alien race who took Aneka Jansen in 2011. It's a really interesting sci-fi story, and a must-read for sci-fi fans looking for something a little different."

    "The book was very interesting for me to read because of the story line about this confident woman who finds herself in a strange was also part of the story and it mad it more interesting to read.I never get bored with this book around."

    "Despite initial misgivings, I found this book to be quite an entertaining read. I found myself reading this one end to end almost non-stop and enjoyed every minute. Given the vehemence of some of the negative reviews, I might have given this one a pass, but the plot-line intrigued me and the price for the length seemed fair. It may veer close once or twice but there is a well thought out, well written Science Fiction story here and the sex is actually an integral part of the story line . It emphasizes the sea change that has taken place in human culture since the time of Aneka Jansen’s 2011 AD kidnapping by the alien Xinti. To the jenlay, sex is merely something you do for fun and to relieve tension, which seems a better solution than popping pills all day. The predominance of female/female sex didn’t bother me, though I suppose that’s because I’m a guy. I didn’t really see it as pushing any sort of lesbian agenda. It was just people enjoying each other. I must confess that a lot of similar guy/guy sex scenes might have lost me or at least prompted me to do a little skimming. As it is, I found the sex scenes to be treated with a light (if graphic) touch, and a sense of humour. There were a few editing glitches, mostly orphan words left over from cutting and pasting, but not enough to degrade the read. I have seen more in recent ‘mainstream’ publications."

    "The story that Aneka provides in Steel Beneath the Skin is confusing at times. It doesn't do a good job at incorporating lesbians or touching upon this topic. Rather it focuses on a science fiction tale of a post apocalyptic world."

    "I didn't really know what to think reading the bit of what it's about. Then I saw the reviews. Yeah, I'll pass on this."
  • Lei Xu

    "This is a good story with an interesting lead. There are mixed reviews because of the sexual content, but if you can handle it I would recommend this book. The sexual content isn't the focus of the book even though it's frequent. It plays a role in how society is in the book. This is a very good futuristic Sci-Fi."
