Put into those scenes of rape and abuse The authors lavished care on something I would just as soon not read and certainly don t need to ave repeated over and over Lee Miller ave fabulous prose and an incredible talent for communicating deep emotions in a few choice words It s a pity that they spent their time repeatedly graphically umiliating the eroine If you re looking up this book it probably means that you ve read through the available books about the Liaden Universe are ungry for And like myself thought that this would be of the same style and stories but in a fantasy genre And this is my cautionary taleThis is a story A and story B book one chapter tells the story of the eroine the other the story of Longeye That s Story B with a capital B that stands for boring But story A is a orrifying tale of well rape The A Strangers Touch (Psychic Triplet Trilogy, heroine of story A is repeatedly violatedI couldn t keep count what with the gang rapes and regular rapes and pretty much any way that someone could sexually victimize a woman I think the total stood at about 16 at the book s close Story Bas some orrifying and graphic tales of rape and sodomy all it s very own This is not the work I ve come to expect from the Sharon Lee and Steve Miller writing duo Honestly reading it made me think less of them as authors and fear the Liaden Universe may go tripping down plot paths as dark and morbid as this one in the future I wish the editors and publishers involved in the fruition and release of this book would ave thought twice The MeatEater Fish and Game Cookbook: Recipes and Techniques for Every Hunter and Angler had this book been written by a previously unknown author that author wouldave Papyrus and Tablet had a stack of rejection letters not a contract But established authors with an established readership sellsand my advice is to not buy it this time I veeard that Duainfey contains disturbing sexual content I mention that as a word of warning in case you re a reader who dislikes that sort of thingThat said I can t speak to that personally I didn t get that far Duainfey starts with an overly confusing prologue set in the Fey realm I was never uite sure what was actually Duainfey starts with a fun concept of elves and The Reckoning: the electrifying new novel from bestseller John Grisham humans living warily as neighbors Two individuals auman woman and an elf man are each A Foxs Love (American Kitsune hurtorribly by the other race And that is it No real explanation of The Provocateur howumans and elves are different Little charactarization No explanation of uman or elvish society Many fantasy books are designed to leave you a little confused at the beginning but new concepts are eventually explained Lee and Miller just leave everything including the characters bland and vague I d give this book negative stars if I could It s just rape porn and I felt defiled after I read it I m not sure why I even finished it except I expected from the authors I love the Liaden book.

455 5 stars AThis review will apply to both Duainfey book 1 and Longeye book 2 I don t believe its accurate to view these two books as a duology but they are Gold Rush halves of the same whole There is no point IMO in reading one if you don t also plan to read the other book Anyway I found this duo of books to be captivating disturbing engrossing and satisfying in the sense of traditionaligh fantasy There are the Fey there are Girl Reporter humans there are sentient trees and animals there is an evil monster who was so vilee made my skin crawl there is the triumph of good over evil and a positive Hunted happy outcome I ve read a lot of books by Lee and Miller and always find their style of writing appealing However they can be very subtle and they expect the reader to pay attention and figure out the story as it unfolds instead of justanding it to you They also tend to end their books a bit abruptly for my taste but maybe I ve become spoiled by the ubiuitous epilogue It doesn t change the fact that these books are really well done There IS some uncomfortable sexual content in book one It isn t added to make the book romantic or erotic by any means but to allow the reader to really understand Gingerbread Heart how depraved and craven the evil monster is Since the Liaden Universe seriesas very little sexual content and that little bit is mostly implied it may come as a surprise nasty or not to some readers to find it ere Myself I m appy to see two of my favorite authors displaying yet another facet in their mighty talent A very difficult book to read It started slow and really very Cinderella ey It got a little interesting but was laden with scenes of rape mental physical and spiritual I ended up skipping multiple pages with a grieved Biz Talk-2 heart I am auge fan of Lee and Miller This book is darker than most of the Liaden novels although some of the Liaden books do Ricky Ricottas Mighty Robot vs the Stupid Stinkbugs from Saturn (Ricky Ricotta, have their moments It also ends on a big cliffhanger Or several big cliffhangers Rebecca DeBeuvelly orowever you spell A Historical Atlas of Tibet her nameas a maimed arm and a spoiled reputation although The Last Awakening (Curse of the Phoenix, her virtue was never soiled She s about to be married to some old man who isarsh and lives up in the cold north and seems to care only for money and appearances but she s whisked out from underneath Italian Warships Of World War II his nose by a Fey However it s unclear whether or not this is actually a better fate forer And we certainly don t know by the end of the bookI liked the book well enough but wasn t captivated in the same way I am by the Liaden books I liked teh beginning of this book but once we it the middle I disliked the plot the situation the main character s idiocy and gullability I wasn t pulled along by wanting to know what appened to the main character Now I do admit I always peek at endings It usually makes no difference in my enjoymen. Rebecca Beauvelley is a ruined womanIn a moment of girlish folly she allowed a Critical Social Theory and the End of Work high flying young man to takeer up in The Traps his phaeton not realizing thate was drunk When e dropped the ribbons she recovered them but not in time to avoid disaster The young man was killed in the accident Rebecca.
