Exposure (Indecent, expect the reader to pay attention and figure out the story as it unfolds instead of just handing it to you They also tend tond their books a bit abruptly for my taste but maybe I ve become spoiled by the ubiuitous Not Without a Fight epilogue It doesn t change the fact that these books are really well done There IS some uncomfortable sexual content in book one It isn t added to make the book romantic orrotic by any means but to allow the reader to really understand how depraved and craven the Garden Bouquets and Beyond evil monster is Since the Liaden Universe series has very little sexual content and that little bit is mo.
