I'd heard nothing but glowing reviews about this series, but I'm not sure. I question the use of rampant sex as a plot device outside of erotica, but I may be in the minority here. Riley is a likeable enough character, and I liked Quinn. The premise was interesting, but it did seem like Riley was either fighting for her life or having sex 95% of the time - which didn't leave a lot of time for further character development. I will read the second book though and see if it pulls me in enough to carry on with the series.

Nichole (Dirrty H) You're not in the minority - well, okay, maybe you are but if so, I'm there with you.

I felt like Arthur wrote this really interesting world with all her different creatures and a good story, and then thought, "Hmm... how can I make it okay for my main character to be kind of a slut?" So she made a HUGE sex drive and complete lack of inhibition part of the nature of the creature, and bam, now Riley can run around naked and have sex with everybody.
I was very on the fence with these books, but there was something about them that kept me compelled to keep reading. By books 5 and 6 I was hooked, and I also think the rampant, indiscriminate sex had toned down a bit by then.

DarkHeart "Vehngeance" LOL, good to know I'm not alone. I'll keep reading until I'm made a convert then. ;)
