I’m posting this because: 1. I didn’t want to look like I was abandoning this series on a whim. 2. If I’m going to say that I’m going to finish books that authors give me, I’d better have a reason for not sticking with that.

I’m not posting this because I want to trash Mr. Michaels or his work. I am curious about what happens at the end of this series — I’ve read about 978 pages of it, and on the whole, have enjoyed it.

So why am I not finishing this? Because frankly, I don’t care what the justification you give (and I can think of several), raping your wife for her own good (at best) or to get her to conform to cultural norms (at worse) is just not something I’m going to read.

  1. Having finished the entire series, I am saddened to see you got hung up on something the antagonist did. The author was not saying it was acceptable but was using the scene to show the differences in human and non-human cultures and why the two species were at odds with one another and at war. If I were to stop reading a book or watching a movie with one single objectionable scene in it, I would have a lot of free time on my hands.

    • Oh boy . . . I’m really regretting this post. Okay, 1. I didn’t see him as the antagonist, but that doesn’t matter.

      2. “If I were to stop reading a book or watching a movie with one single objectionable scene in it, I would have a lot of free time on my hands.” Me, too. It’s not my typical M.O., but for me — and I never suggested it’s the choice anyone else should make — this one was too much.

      3. I’m glad you enjoyed the series, and appreciate you stopping by.
