If you are a John Carter of Mars fan or enjoy the "displaced person on another world" then this series is for you. The books run in long story arcs so you can read just a few to complete a plot line or go for the whole set. Akers creates a very complex world for the hero to adventure in.

On its other side I bent, got my fingers under the lip of its shell and heaved it over onto its back. It rolled like a dummy figure for a moment. All its legs waved like a forest lashed by a gale. I stared down. Drifting dust still fell in patterns across the torchlights and as I walked up to the buttress I saw that this drifting light-irradiated dust was very beautiful. An odd, irrational thought, perhaps, but for all my uncouthness and barbarity I have, as I think you will understand, an eye for beauty found in places where beauty is not expected to be discovered.
A bunch of people huddled on the hard stones in the light and they were in bad case. Here, I said to myself, is where my labors begin. The first thing I noticed as I walked among them was their cowed and beaten-down appearance. They were all of races that people on Kregen regard as the delicate and refined ones, the weak and unaggressive diffs.
A number of Ennschafften, whom folk normally call Syblians, huddled together, the men bundles of muscles, the women very beautiful, and all with simple naive baby-faces.
Prince of Scorpio Dray Prescot by Alan Burt Akers
I stood for a moment staring at this collection of the deprived of Kregen. Even then, Lamnias are not deprived in the sense of worldly goods, for they are wily merchants with the highest reputations. Lying back on a spread cloak of black and yellow lozenges a numim bellowed at me. In his right fist he gripped a sword whose blade had snapped off a foot from the hilt. He looked to be in the most ferocious of bad tempers. His hide was so dark a brown as to appear black, and his bristling lion mane was a tawny umber. He was not of the golden numims.
By Numi-Hyrjiv the Golden Splendor! This is not to be born. And have the Everoinye then sunk so low as to send a naked unarmed apim?
Welcome to Etsy!
His wrathful lion face grimaced then and he put his left hand to the bandage. My head rings with all the bells of Beng Kishi, and you stand there like a cretin! Jump to it, onker, and fetch me water! I parch!

About to bark out a choice remark that would cut this supercilious lion-man down to size, I checked myself. I still wore that foolish grinning face. Before I could speak he was ranting on again, acting merely as he usually acted. Why do you stand there? I am Strom Irvil of Pine Mountain. You jump when I speak to you, as any respectable body slave should jump when his master speaks.
That fool Zaydo got himself crushed when the roof caved in and I am all alone and—. You never argue with your master, Zaydo! Get me water or I will stripe you most cruelly.
All my body slaves are called Zaydo. He tried to rise, forcing himself up with the broken sword as a crutch. He gasped. He fell back onto the spread cloak. Water, he said. Fetch water, Zaydo, and you escape the flogging triangle. I saw his lion lips were dry and cracked.
