Read from May 02 to 04, 2012

I do not want to live in the world Rusch has created in this series. It is too hard for me to read about aliens taking human babies/children as compensation/punishment/justice and humans allowing this to happen. Enough with the babies already! My heart just can't take it. In fact, I had to skip to the end to make sure I found out what happened before I would willingly continue reading.

Good story and descriptions but I think I will pass on the rest of the series.

Tatiana I have a hard time reading about children in these situations as well. I'm not surprised that it bothers you as a mother. And kudos for passing on the series--it's only bound to get more unbearable.

Virginia It never used to bother me so I think it definitely has to do with the fact that I'm now a mother! I'm not sure if the rest of the series deals with disappearing babies, but there are just so many awesome books out there, I really don't want to dawdle on series that I'm not intrigued by. *HUGS*

Emily Thanks for the heads up on this. I've had enough of those types of child endangerment plots too, so I'll skip this!
