I was really shocked at how much I disliked this book, as I've loved everything else Ms. Showalter has written.

The lead character is controlling, abusive, narcissistic, and he ABDUCTS his "mate" who assaults him physically to try to escape. I got 1/3 through the novel and was horrified at the control he was using against her, and words like "obeying" etc. It was just a horror. Her attempts to survive and go back to her life are called "stubbornness", which implies he knows what is best for her, as he's taken away her voice and her power.

I will give Atlantis #4 a shot, but if its anything like this one I'm bailing on this series.
