Having read all the 5 star reviews I was looking forward to reading this book and purchased Part 2 whilst I was at it.
I readto the end hoping against all hope that something would grab my interest. The characters are all very shallow, perhaps the main lead, Tanin has some moments where she shows she has a backbone and I do feel sorry for her plight, blackmailed, abused, insulted and demeaned at every opportunity and yet she struggles on for the sake of her family. However Tarago is nothing short of an insensitive, juvenile, boorish but ultimately weak man who allows others to influence him and leech off of him. The is nothing Alpha male about him.
Race discrimination is a very sensitive subject and the aggression if it does at times come through but being set in 1993 and published 20 years later, more could have been done with this matter
Let's see what book 2 has to offer but I would not recommend this book.
