Discovery of Witches with a rant

I liked this book. I know a lot of other people have read and reviewed. I love the plot, the set up and I can't wait to read the next installment. That being said there are parts of the book that made me gag, and have to put it down.

It is not as if there is any gratuitous violence or sex in it. I loved the fact that the book was written so that sex was absent. It was great that it was implied, I have an imagination I am an adult I can figure out what two people do in a locked room with a bed. I don't need to read about throbbing manhood or heaving bosoms. I loved that there was no sex. WooHoo one up for the author.


No, what made me gag was when they talked about how cool, his flesh felt under her warm hands.Every time the author talks about how cool his flesh felt, how good that was, all I could think about was a steak left on the counter, right before cooking it. EWWWW!! That does not feel good, it is icky.

 I get the lust and desire for power. That some people want power at all cost. I just don't get how vampires can be sexually attractive. They have no heart beat. NONE! (Basic anatomy stuff coming up.) If there is no heart beat, there is no blood flow, blood flow is what is needed to have an erection. How can a vampire have an erection to consummate a relationship? Sleeping with the dead is called necrophilia. A vampire is dead, necrophilia. NASTY.


That being said, I loved the way the books main character was raised by her lesbian aunts. I loved that the main plot of the book was not about who you love, but that you love, and that it should not matter to others who you love. When the next book comes out I am definitely going to read it.

So I'm guessing you've avoided the delicious trash that is the Sookie Stackhouse series then... heh.

G read this book and also liked it and somehow managed to leave out the vampire part of it. Hmm. Guess I will have to check it out of the library now.

I do avoid the Sookie books. I did try to read one. Once.

Granny, the vampiers are vampiers not sparkly faries as in some books.
