This book could be viewed as a juvenile teen fantasy, but sex makes it very age inappropriate. The series writing tends to be repetitive. Lonely woman feeling sorry for herself. But she is somehow irresistible to males, a gourmet cook and marries multiple hunks. The "hunks" act very immaturely (which is kind of hard to believe for mates often supposedly thousands of years old) treating her badly (does the author have a history we should know about?). Only the heroine can defeat the evil that threatens. The heroine discovers even more powers, finds a few more mates to jump into bed with, cooks a few "delicious" meals and saves the world. Her mates then rediscover how wonderful she is and crawl back begging her forgiveness. Occasionally a god intervenes if things get too tangled up and author can't otherwise straighten out the mess she has created. The Ir'indicti series differs because of a male hero, who essentially gets no mates and seems to be ultimately rejected by those mates he desires. Doesn't seem fair for the males, but author is female.
The story is predictable. The female heroines are terrible role models for young teens because of their blatant jumping into multiple beds, their casual killing of bystanders and villeins without trials, and their stereotype of a woman's worth being partly defined as a great cook. Too many side descriptions of sauces and main course dishes also detracts.
The redeeming points are:
The book is inexpensive
The book is very fast read
For those reasons I continue to read the series as fun escapism. If you want to kill a few hours, go for it. But be prepared to occasionally be frustrated with idiotic characters.
In this book the author attempts to show how Reah's mates acting stupidlity can be explained by a god (who is supposedly thousands if not millions of years old) acting like a two year old, intervening and causing problems that did not have to exist. Hard to believe, but at least you only have to stomach believing in one idiot instead of several.
I cannot endorse this book as intellectual, deep or redeeming role models. But is a very quick fast paced read and still relatively inexpensive.
I have read all of Connie Suttle books and have loved her work. But of her three series she has, I like this one the least. At first Reah is so abused you have to feel for her. This book starts 25 years after the last one. During this time Reah has had 6 children and lives near poverty on Kifirin. And it seems that no one knows or cares.
I am very disappointed in the men in this series. Some of characters are from her other books but in this series they suddenly become mean and stupid. They treat Reah like she is not worth consideration. None of her mates seem to respect or like Reah enough to spend any time with her. All they want is sex and for her to cook for them.
I am also disappointed in Reah because I had thought she had learned to stand up for herself. She owns a restaurant that doesn't seem to be making money but all she had to do was ask her managers and she could tell if they lied. This would have given her enough money to have taken care of her kids and had a better life. Instead when she finally figures out she is being taken advantage of, she wants someone else to handle it for her.
When it comes to having money to take care of your kids, most mothers are willing to ask or beg. She had several people she could have gone to but didn't bother. She shouldn't have had to but when your kids are involved, you do whatever you need to do.
Reah needs to get rid of most of her mates but especially the one who was willing to stand by and watch her be raped. She has the worst mates. And having 3 brothers as mates is just 'yuk'.
I will be interested in the next book to see how Reah and all the men act.
