By Book #5 Interstellar Conflict, the protagonist had devolved into a self-centered whiner. The first half of this book was devoted to that whining. She’s always angry or sad and crying all the time because her husband, an android soldier she knew was committed to serving when she met him, chooses to stand and fight against aliens that have destroyed his crew and are bent on taking over the Confederacy (aliens the author doesn’t bother to describe at all). The protagonist is upset because her husband won’t run away with her so they won’t be bothered with all this life-threatening stuff. She just wants to live in peace; why won’t her husband just give that to her? Why won’t her husband ever put her needs first? So she continually runs off to be with her father-in-law (with whom she shares a lot of sexual tension) to drink and lick her wounds. She finally agrees to commit herself, reluctantly, to helping her husband once he grovels and apologizes to her satisfaction. With the caveat, of course, that he is on thin ice and this is probably his last chance.
Crikey lady, there’s a war on! So quit worrying about whether or not your husband is sensitive to your needs and just throw in with him! Get your head out of your %$@# and get in the fight! Try being supportive of the man you supposedly love. Fighting the good fight is what he does, and you knew it going in.
I have no patience for this kind of self-involvement, and whining, and crying, and carrying on at all times. I can get that from a celebrity wives show. I’m not saying that every heroine has to be fearless, bitchy and bad-ass. I often like heroines who are portrayed as softer, gentle and kind. But that doesn’t equate to crying and whining about your needs all the time. I do believe the author was trying to present a different spin on this, but for me the takeaway was negative.
I’m giving three stars because I enjoyed the beginning of the series. I know momentum is a hard thing for an author to maintain in a series, so I hate to be so harsh herein, but that’s the purpose of a review. Your heroine needs to grow up.
