    This is going to be one of those reviews where some people are going to find it helpful but others are going to find it ambiguous, but here goes…

    I’ve bought all the Druid series and started the Mer book Ember, however I cannot say I’m a fan, and I’m struggling to get into Ember – a little too much of the same after reading my way through the Druids.

    What I didn’t like:

    I would not have continued reading about one third of the way into the first book if it hadn’t been free and a three set primarily because I didn’t like the main character – she just irked me from the beginning, can’t quite put my finger on why, but the main character being likable either saves or kills a story, and in this one it was close to killing it for me.

    I also did not like the way the males were to the women and vice versa. Magic sex does not make abusive relationships love matches and I hate it when the women are so permissive and forgiving of appalling behavior from their men so I hated the tone of the relationships – and as it’s the relationships that draw me into the stories, this almost had me hitting the delete button.

    I also hate that every female in the story is sluttish. I’m sorry but it just irks me how women seem consistently portrayed as victims or whores in a genre aimed primarily at women. Even the Amazonian females in these books (Lucia and Sania or whatever her name is) are victims and whores which just really annoys me, but any way…

    It is a dark series. Nearly every sex scene is violent or rape or dub con and it does warn of this.

    What I liked:

    The books vastly improved when they switched from first person.

    There are moment in the series (not the first book) of sheer brilliant writing which almost redeems the whole for me and kept me reading on. This author is seriously talented, and gets better as the series evolves. There are descriptions and details that are just absolutely captivating. Five stars for the writing in the later books and for the editing which is top notch.

    The sex scenes were different than the run of the mill. I can’t say they got my engines running, I’m not a fan of the each one just get bigger theme, but they were well done.

    In summary: if you’re not after romance, just erotic content and want something different and well written, I’d recommend it. If you like romance, these are not for you. I am giving the first three three stars because the first brought the whole box set down, but from 4 onwards, I would rate 4-5 even though they’re not to my personal taste, so I recommend reading the whole lot and not let the first turn you off.

    Rape isn’t Romantic, January 6, 2013

    I was expecting some light vampiric romantic erotica. What I got was three rape fantasy stories. Romance doesn’t even enter the universe. Just biological attraction.

    In book one Rachel and her friend go out on the town, the friend is gang raped and Rachel barely misses being raped as she is saved by two Reapers. Through these three books 95% of all of the intimate action is rape, either physically or mentally.

    In this universe female vampires have become sterile. The only humans that vampires can now mate with are Druids and their descendants. As the number of female Druids is very limited each female is forced to take on a minimum of two mates. Whether she wants to or not. Fighting this are the Rogues who believe that it should be one on one mating. Of course it is the males prerogative to kidnap and force a type of intimacy. It doesn’t help that as part of the Druid biology that full blooded Druid women will want to copulate with any and all until she is mated.

    As far as the writing is concerned, the author writes a good story. The dialogues are off, even taking into consideration the stilted manner in which the vampires of this universe speak. However, the action parts are well done.

    I wish I had known this was a rape fetish book, I would have avoided it. As it is I was hoping that the rape theme was just for the beginning of the first story. As is I am left with a feeling of ickiness.

    Before reading these books you’d have to know exactly what you’re getting into and be ok with it. Good story, action packed, well written, fast paced, and lots and lots of rape scenes. Even most of the consensual sex really isn’t since there is mental manipulation involved.

    Right or wrong, because it’s written as PNR, the rape is easier to swallow. At least for me. Vampire biologic imperative and all that. This author does not hold back one bit. The language is as filthy as the sex and violence.

    So, If your looking for romance, fluff, subtlety, or even a little tact….don’t read this, you’ll be terribly offended. It bothers me when someone is warned about the content of a book, then writes a bad review based on their opinion of forewarned content! If reading about rape offends you, don’t buy a book full of it. Personally I read them in one sitting…..what can I say? *blush*

    My only complaint is that I want to read 4-8 now and am not pleased with the price. The first 3 are free on Amazon right now but the next 3 are $9.50 and they are novellas. I’ll probably be stopping at 3 unfortunately.
