I loved the characters and the events that happened in this book. There are always shades of grey. Rachel was an amazingly strong woman and fierce protector. She suffered a tragic past and lived the results, and continued to fight for herself and her daughter – a product of rape. That takes strength. And during the book, some might call her weak and weepy, but to me, it makes her real. Not everyone can stand up and suffer as she did through her life and what was currently happening to her and not shed a tear. Not mourn for those they lost and other she feared to lose still. Not once did she give up.
And we have Ehtishem, a man that looks human but isn’t. I loved him. Loooooved him. From the moment he arrived on Monica’s doorstep to the end, he was an amazing character. He was compassionate, strong, and oh so patient. He understood what Monica was going through and not once did he take any anger out on her. He cared for her and her child and was willing to do whatever it took to save them. They had such tender moments that I wish could have been expanded on. I know this isn’t straight up romance as it’s more sci-fi with romantic elements, but damn, I can keep wishing.
Monica did a wonderful job and her writing just sucks me right in. I’ve read her Fantasy (The Shadow and the Sun]), and now her sci-fi and can’t wait for sequels to each of these! There is a bit of a cliffhanger as Rachel and Ehtishem's story is not yet completed. There will be three books, I believe? But so worth the read!
The writing itself is extremely well done. Things were clear, well written/edited, and solidly thought out. It was a perfect blend of romance, SF, and drama. In reading the other reviews(and I am a big review stalker) I was leary at first then flumoxed at reading about some of the lower rated reviews. I thought Rachel acted as anyone would, in fact, she was the typical 'Everywoman'; she acted as any one of us would, I believe. Fear and uncertainty over a long period of time mess with a persons head, and though some people thought that she became a slave after arriving on the 'mothership' couldn't be wrong. Eiteshem summoed it up beautifully when he called her his 'lover by choice but property by necessity'. Rachel was his Rose Red and he was her Bear Prince. As frustrating as it was to watch her work through her insecurities and confussion after arriving and meeting Eitishem again it had to be done, and she didn't take forever to do it. I especially loved how he too transformed from a cold and calculating killer to one of deep emotions and feelings (with her). Very beautiful to watch.
I also didn't understand one reviewers comment about profanity....what? I saw the f-word maybe two times.....It would have been a lot more if I would have been speaking Rachel's lines, but MEP used other methods to show anger and frustration.
This is part one of three, and I am DROOLING in anticipation. Get a crack on things, Sister, and get that Part II out! Oh, as an aside- for those who find the alien language difficult or confussing at the back of the book are a couple of glossarys (didn't find those til lthe end), but the author does make her intentions clear, but for more clarity don't be afraid to use the glossaries.
Congratulations on a job extremely well done, Ms. Pierce, and thank you so much for all your hard work and talent.
