I really enjoyed the first half of the book. The world building made sense. The main character was intriguing--reminded me a bit of Ender, a sensitive, talented child used and abused by everyone around her. I only had the occasional cringe when the author hinted at a possible romance between this wounded bird and a father figure. I'd have been perfectly satisfied if this was a novella that wrapped with winning the big battle.
Unfortunately, in the middle of the big battle, this stand-alone story has a head-on collision with her 10 book long Blood series. Suddenly we've left the people (and planet) where we spent most of the story, and about two dozen new characters with assorted relationships and species take center stage. I briefly tried to keep up, but characters were barely introduced before another wave arrived. So we now have this fragile young woman surrounded by a passel of strong personalities who proceed to steamroller her. That could actually work as a story, except these are supposed to be the *good* guys. And I'm still cringing as the paternalistic romance starts to develop.
The book's second half then proceeds with this new cast and a completely new plot, with the main character now used and dismissed by everyone (no more physical abuse). As it nears the end, there's an attempt to tie these two separate story lines back together, but it's awkward at best. And then we hit a cliff-hanger, which ticks me off on principle.
She is no more than property and has no say in the matter.
It seems like it was written by someone raised in the kind of society where women are truly nothing but slaves.
When Reah's mother is raped they talk about how it was done to discredit the mother (because of course rape is the victim's fault).
All throughout book three, Reah is raped. She must do what Teeg says or else her good friend will be hurt or murdered. That is rape, yet she continues with the abused woman attitude and accepts it.
Every time a man abuses her in fact, it's always "her fault" and she just needs to understand. I'm waiting for more of the classic "baby, why did you make me hit you" lines.
The author's relentless abusive attitude and rape fantasies start to weigh very heavily after a while. It is difficult to read about abuse so much but really does seem to give insight into an abused mind. If you want to try and understand how an abused/raped woman thinks, then read these books but otherwise it's a difficult read.
At the same time there isn't enough character development that it really pulls you in. It's something of a dichotomy.
