I think that I like the idea of these different races more than what I actually read in the book.

I love the idea of the Ionian, a group of strong women with special powers. They seem to just want to live by themselves and worship their goddesses. What I hated about them is what can happen to any group, they get set in their ways and the people in power become corrupt. The high priestess is starting to edge over that line. I also found myself very disturbed by how they initial young women into c...more

I have never read anything by this author before,but liked how the plot sounded.

And they originally came from Greece where they were the only blond people in a sea of darkhaired people.Thats was a sign of their "specialness"!

Hating them already? Theres more...

I kept hearing about how psychically and emotionally powerful they were, but they acted like the 7 dwarfs of dysfunction: Whiny, Horny, Petty, Clingy, Bitchy, Stodgy, and Phobic. Worse yet, they couldn't settle on one personality, and the resulting mood swings gave me whiplash. There were some good steamy sex scenes, but also some dubious consent sex, and one scene that brushes t...more
