The novel takes place in the world of "Downsizing" but some 30-year after the invention of the original technology. This will get very dark at times so be prepared.
Here's a sample:
When it reached the cage side, it reached up, grabbed the vertical bars, began violently shaking them and screaming into the ball gag. “So, my little specimen wants out, not going to happen” Andrews said. “Normally, I don’t speak to my specimens like people, but you and I started this journey together, so I’ll make an exception. I have plans for you. I’m going to breed you in a month or so, once we locate a compatible sperm donor. And if everything goes well, you’ll give birth to a nice litter of three or four pups, due to the fertility drugs you’ll be on. But, there’s a 1 in 9 chance that any pregnancy can also produce a full-size embryo. And if that happens, well, did you ever see the movie Alien where the creature burst through the guys chest? It would be like that, but from your abdomen.” 7768F had stopped shaking the bars as Andrews continued. “If you survive giving birth, we may try some interspecies mating. We’ve haven’t had much success in producing any offspring but, it’s always entertaining to watch the mating process.” 7768F started to tear-up. “For now,” Andrews continued, “we will be preforming a series of experiments on you. Most are to test your endurance, but a few are just for fun, our fun, not yours.” 7768F eased its grip on the bars and sank to the counter-top, looking down. “Oh, and there will be a few times when you’ll have to earn your keep by entertaining some guests of the lab.” 7768F looked up at that comment. “It’s 2:15. Barry will be back in a few minutes, but I’m going to lunch now. You remember Barry don’t you, your size, talented hands? I took Barry home a few times about a month ago and believe me, he’s good. He had you about to climax in under a minute, imagine what he’ll be able to do to you in an hour!” Andrews smiled and got up to leave, “This is one of the “For Our Fun” experiments I mentioned. I’ll close the door to my office to give the two of you some privacy.” Andrews shut the door and walked down the hall. She took out her PDA and sent Barry a text. “Specimen in counter-top enclosure. You have 1-hour.”
