I almost gave up on the series after reading book three. But I had to find out if the vampires could redeem themselves and if Lissa continues to submit to their abuse.
I think that the flaws in all of these characters is what makes this series so compellingly complex. The vampires continue to be suck to the very end, never redeeming themselves. Lissa does rebel and flees but always returns. This is very realistic of a male dominated society and for a lonely abused woman. You keep rooting for her and being disappointed when she again submits even though you kind of understand.
The fact that in spite of her power she can't break free from thier dominance makes you become very involved and invested in her story.
I can't for the life of me understand why she believes she loves Gavin. I understand why she fears and distrusts him. But for all of the warnings about how formidable he is as her head assassin fiance. He allows all type of abuse to happen to her without retaliation except against her.
I will read the next installment because I like this powerful flawed woman that may someday come into her own, find her own agenda and make all those dominating males do her bidding for a change.
I see the greater picture the author was trying for, the vastness of her vision for the origin of the species, I just wish she had let her heroine actually be one and not an immature angry whiner.
Aliens? No, one seems to blink an eye (or ask questions and demand answers from these aliens!). It's also nice that the same aliens refer to her as "baby" like her vamp husband (can we please stay in character Ms. Suttle). And ... we find out that Ms. Lissa is abused -- but this is ALL absent in the first book (which you would think would have been discussed as Lissa ran from 2 abusive men trying to kill her!!!) She has such an abusive past that she falls out crying when she thinks her vamp husband will hit her (this is the same woman that has shredded every bad guy she's met). And I love the fact that a fat, middle aged woman (who knows she is not a looker) all of a sudden has the self-esteem of a D-sized Hooter waitress wearing 2-piece bikinis and never once blinking (show me someone who lived the life as a fat, dowdy chick that all of a sudden forgets she was ever fat!). All of these things .. just make me shake my head and once again wonder how the author keeps the story going with so many holes ... that she eventually fills with nonsense.
I really wanted to love this character -- but instead I don't like her. She rages against the machine -- and then pouts, always forgiving the males that dominate her life and use her skills to benefit them (not really an empowering female role model). I'm still shaking my head over the aliens that have been included -- should have stopped reading when CS first introduced those characters...
Despite it all, I'm giving this book 2 stars because Connie Suttle is a good writer -- and I would read more from her if I was guaranteed it would make sense and was cohesive.
