This book was fantastic and horrific at the same time. I am really torn over what rating to give it. In one sense, I wish I hadn't read it. In another, I'm glad I did. It deals with very heavy issues. Usually I'm fine with that, and I often search out the angsty books because I often get more out of them than the 'fluff' romance novels. Be that as it may, this book made me feel nauseous. On one hand, that shows the quality of the writing of some incredibly hard scenes to read. On the other hand, I felt like I needed to be sick. My heart was pounding and I had to stop reading. I went and vacuumed the house. Let's be honest, I never put down a book to do housework, but I needed the break. The fact that the break involved housework is just a bit sad, but such is life! I did pick the book up again and kept reading, because I have been invested in these characters throughout the series, and I needed a HEA.
Please don't take what I have just said the wrong way. This book is well-written. There were no grammatical errors that I noticed. The characters stayed true(ish) to who they are. That being said, I strongly believe that this book needs to have a warning on it that it contains graphic scenes of violence. I wish I had known that going in, which is partly why I wanted to leave a review.Read more ›
Here's what I really think: I think Maya Banks writes too much BDSM. In the BDSM literary world most roles are very strictly defined. Women are feminine and strong in only the sense that they can take the pain and mind games that men dish out. Men are strong in and of themselves and eventually meet a woman that they have the hots for. In a nutshell: In Maya Banks's mind, women can only exist if they are the playthings/objects/partners/ wives/girlfriends of men, while men can just exist without women until THEY DECIDE they want a woman in their life then they just take her.
Banks can't turn this off. Not even when she writes other novels that aren't BDSM. The women are still going to be helpless. They are still going to be incapable of truly functioning without a man. They are always going to be ultra feminine. Even the kick @ss P.J. who does not wear dresses and heels is forced to, you got it, dress up in a tight black mini and heels (for a mission, of course) because Maya Banks needs you to know that P.J.Read more ›
