Slave to the Machine is fantasy for grown-ups who still like to play games. Waking up from death, Melody J finds her personality has been copied and recreated as a computer game character to satisfy teenage boys. Just like Tomb Raider Lara Croft, Melody J finds herself under the game player's control, but that's where the similarities end as she is caught up in games where she must express her sexuality in ways she never could when she was alive.
