A strange little book, in some ways very reminiscent of standard sexist tropes of insect-like matriarchies; some retrograde comparisons between the matriarchy and the depiction of the non-matriarchal society in which men are largely dominant; and a dynamic in which the matriarchal race is comprised of very beautiful queens with pheromones irresistible to human males.
On the other hand, this story avoids some of the more ridiculously sexist trademarks of similarly themed works. In some ways it was as if Steele was using the old sexist trope, and tinkering with it just slightly to make it somewhat more realistic from a feminist viewpoint. For instance, the female queen Anii is actually quite happy to maintain the "dominant" role in sex, and doesn't feel the desire to be submissive to her human male love Padrec ; Padrec, similarly, while unhappy about being, essentially, a sex slave, is nevertheless not that unhappy about it, and is unhappy mostly from the perspective of a free and individual human being, not from the perspective of thwarted masculinity.
In fact, the treatment of the sex slavery is handled quite interestingly: Anii constantly reminds herself that Padrec's reactions are more akin to those of another queen from her species being kept in captivity, and not like the reactions of the basically non-sentient males of her species. Steele wasn't quite as successful in treating the sexist plot realistically in terms of describing the female characters, who are all apparently nubile, beautiful young things.
Anii sees open-mouthed kissing as a submission gesture, for instance, but doesn't feel any need to be submissive herself; instead, she uses it as an obvious show of dominance over Padrec. Anii's reflections on human society may be nothing more than the alien perspective on preexisting sexism; but, in the absence of any critique by Padrec of sexism in his own culture, feel more like an imposed authorial perspective.
