About this deal

Durante o período de teste, é possível usufruir de todos os benefícios da assinatura de maneira gratuita. Opal is a fantastic storyteller with great ideas and a wonderful talent for capturing deep emotions.

I of course have an interest in a certain appendage and let me just say I wasn’t disappointed and that too felt very original. There is no way this girl, who grew up in a medieval-esque village without plumbing and electricity knows internal human anatomy. And so, we have a villain who is portrayed as a snobbish, selfish woman (who, out of fear, didn’t say “no” to a horrifying monster she saw kill many people), coming across as sympathetic in a way I do not think the author intended. The list of icks only continued as I read; gut rearranging sex magic, victim blaming, the overuse of the word "squelch", sex as a metric of love and care.Product arrived matching the specifications I requested but also matched the photographs and item description. Because of this, I found it hard to get into, but the glowing reviews of some fellow book lovers convinced me to give it a chance. lol What's so adorable is that Orpheus is just so eager to understand and learn what Reia likes/wants.

If just once Orpheus had given Katerina the choice to leave, it would’ve come across differently—but he didn’t.

And since I love a Beauty and the Beast story it really isn’t surprising I loved this one (she even reads him a children’s folktale of Beauty and the Beast… meta). The entire scene is riddled with frustrating misconceptions and out-of-date language about "purity" and virginity and hymens. He came closer, pressing his mouth down until she could feel the four long front fangs slipping around the back of her neck. Duskwalker's eyes change colors depending on their emotions, which makes it very hard for them (including Orpheus 🤣) to hide their emotions, like a human can. The book's writing is decent and the story up until that point was okay, but I wish the author had reconsidered her choices with Katerina.Katerina is vilified for leaving Orpheus because she apparently never saw the humanity beneath the monstrous exterior. In romance, when a main character is held captive by the other main character, readers know in real life it is not romantic, attractive, or good-hearted. I mean I would have had more sympathy for her if she hadn’t gone that route, but really revenge was quite a rational desire for her, so the fact that she is made out to be totally evil (rather than just traumatized and a bit of a bitch) bothered me. This was thoroughly enjoyable with a few hiccups but they didn’t do much to deteriorate my pleasure. OW/OM DRAMA OW — Orpheus’s first love is present in memory throughout the story, and she is a part of the third act conflict.
