Description

She's portrayed as some slutty, greedy ex-girlfriend who abandoned poor unloved Orpheus when she's actually just a survivor of some horrific kidnapping and assault who's turned her life around with a new partner who treats her better. This was gonna be a 3-star review up until the 80% mark, at which point I was genuinely angry at the way they decided to handle things, so down to 1-star we go.

Just because Reia likes Orpheus and doesn't see him as a monster doesn't mean Katerinas trauma and revulsion to him isn't valid.The pacing didn't bother me while listening to the audiobook because I was driving across state lines for hours and I actually thought their inner dialogue was spot on for people in their situation. The dynamic between Orpheus and Reia is interesting (we know he won't eat her, but he sure gets close to it), and it was fun to see which parts of The Ancient Magus' Bride the author decided to work into the story and what world-building was original. But I am shameless enough to admit I read alllll the sex, which was interesting to say the least lol.

It would be one thing if purity culture was part of the world building, but to have your MC talk about it like scientific fact? She knew she hadn’t screamed, hadn’t tried to run, hadn’t done anything but wait as her family was eaten.

Orpheus, a bloodthirsty duskwalker, demands a bride every ten years from a village in exchange for protection, and as the story begins, he is offered Reia: a headstrong social outcast who doesn’t have enough fear in her body to let him intimidate her. I will add, and this could be a perk to some readers, I felt like the erotica near the end took over the story. Look, Orpheus is so sweet, but I’m not down for an animal skull headed dude nor am I into a penis that has tentacles that can retract inside the body. Just the simple idea that you become what you consume, felt like such a statement on humanity in general.

A Audible é um serviço de entretenimento em áudio que oferece aos assinantes acesso ilimitado a mais de 100 mil audiolivros, além da possibilidade de adquirir um catálogo adicional de mais de 300 mil títulos de audiolivros com desconto. The next book, A Soul to Heal, will feature a plus sized character and the nameless Duskwalker we met in this book. the ow was his first and it was drilled too much that he pleasured her and that they had sex, that he built her a home and that he gave her things that even the heroine stated he'd never given her.But this 534 page standalone fantasy monster romance was - to me - perfectly paced and used every page well. However, there were some times where I thought, "that seems like a ridiculous/easy explanation" when it came to the hows and the whys of the creatures or magic in this realm, but I decided to accept it for what it was so I could continue to enjoy the story.

The baths, omg they were so freaking hot, especially because of the building chemistry between them.I also thought that some of the language that was used didn't fit the world that the author was creating. Si son fans del manga (o anime) The Ancient Magus Bride/Mahō Tsukai no Yome y aparte les gustan los libros spicy. lol What's so adorable is that Orpheus is just so eager to understand and learn what Reia likes/wants. It's about a girl who gets sacrificed to a Duskwalker monster who can't help himself when humans bleed or run from him. Instead of 500+ pages this could have easily been your standard 300ish novel with no loss in terms of plot.
