The "nicer" fae are still usurping Talia's human rights, which no matter the excuse/reason IS NOT their right to do; they have still stolen her life, have irradicated her personal agency in almost ALL aspects of her life, to treat her as a thing only of value insofar as it betters their own situation, no better than a well cared for slave or livestock. No matter the amenities, a complete lack of freedom and life agency is still servitude and imprisonment -- a guilded cage is still a cage. She should just be okay, or heck even grateful, that they're nice while using her as a walking pharmaceudical dispensary so they have "control" over one facet of their lives, while stealing ALL of the control she has over her own life and future? So in essence what the author is saying is that the men's lives are more important than the woman's -- that she should make all of the sacrifices to make their lives whole and accept any scraps of care, control or agency they are willing to allow her so that they can live their best lives regardless of what it it means to what she might have wanted for herself.
Naw, just no. What a load of steaming deficant. Her rights are just as important as theirs, her wants are just as important as theirs. Her trying to stand up for her own rights is nothing that she should apologize for and is no kind of betrayal of the scraps of kindness from kidnapping exploitive selfish troglodytic males.
This is not romantic, just Stockholm syndrome wrapped in internalized misogyny made to make women feel like their wants and desires and rights are not as important as a (attractive &/or wealthy) man's, that they themselves are less than men, and should be glad when males deign to give the least bit of care despite trampling a female's every right in between. Ugh, I want real, truly strong female characters that never apologize for standing up for themselves, for taking care of themselves, and for fighting for their rights.
It's a very interesting thing to watch such powerful beings have to set aside their natural inclinations and share. They each have a dominate side that wants to claim Talia for themselves and watching them reign themselves in gives you a pause wondering if they'll tear into each other.
The fae dynamic with the shifter aspect and the magical atmosphere makes this an intriguing read. It's absolutely difficult to choose a favorite, they are all quite delicious.
I'm looking forward to some steamy scenes and to finding out whether these men that aren't men can share or if they'll agree to take turns in the following books. I'm hooked and can't wait to see how they break this vicious curse.
