the world that this arthur creates is amazing, but some of the sexual content in regards to other alien species ranges from bizarre to down right disgusting. Don't get me wrong I like passion as much as the next gal, but this book was a little out there for me, and this is from someone who really likes Science fiction romance. I found the way the aurthor draws you into this world pretty cool but the customs are a little to ridiculous for me to really get into all the way. Its starts off great but seem to be lacking in some places. Everything is told from the heroines point of Veiw and you don't get a chance to get into the heros head to know what he's thinking or how he really feels about her. The story is told in the first person which i don't usually read but I took a chance on this one. I would give the book "five stars" for creating an atmosphere I could get lost in, and "one star" for the romantic side of it. it could have been better but wasn't. Not sure how to rate this one. Not sure I liked it, but didn't really hate it either.
