A.L. Sonnichsen's blog, where life and writing meet
Overall, a fun read...I agree with you, but the BUT in that is huge for me. What the heck is with encouraging a gay teenager- 16 or so, to hook up with a middle-aged warlock? I found this disturbing enough to not want to read anymore of the books. Sigh. I can't imagine that if it were a girl attracted to a middle-aged warlock that it would be okay, and young is young, whether male or female. Is it just me that this bothered?
You are not alone, Kelly. That part raised red flags for me, too. And then at the end when the Warlock saves his life, it almost seemed to hint at the fact that they might end up hooking up later. No, I'm with you. Middle aged person in powerful position in a sexual relationship with underaged person = Ew.Amy
I read your review, and I don't think I'll pick up the series. The point Kelly mentioned would bother me, and I already have a lot of books I want to read.
Good points, everyone. I still liked the books, although there were a few eyebrow-raising relationships throughout. (If I remember right, though, none of the characters actually hook up, as in, have sex.)
Amy--I have an award for you over at my blog. :)
