I have been trying desperately to like this, but it's just not engaging. We aren't told enough about Damen and Laurent to actually care about either of them. We are just thrown into the mix, which would usually be okay. But we aren't given enough background to feel sorry for Damen. And Laurent is so unlikable at this point that I'm over it. Too much rape and random sex scenes. I get that this is a lot like ancient civilizations, but there's something gross about this to me. Sorry if any if you really liked this, but I'm not. Pass.
