Why do the abused love their abuser? How does abuse get passed down? When does one just accept it? These are some of the questions I was left with after reading this. On the one hand, there was much about accepting ones self, choosing ones gender and living your own truth that I could resin ate with. But that all was lost as I read about an abused woman coming to terms with her abuser and eventually loving him! I had a hard time with that. Please don't excuse the behavior of any abuser, regardless of their past. What they do is inexcusible. We must show compassion but don't stay in the relationship as Lydia does. Please dont.

Ms. Barnett has given us an amazing story where I felt every ounce of Lydia's terror, frustration and anger at being regarded as nothing more than a pet by her keeper, a blue-skinned, pointy-eared, alien prince. However, I also empathized with her when she accepts her very real survival is completely dependent on him. Alien or not, he becomes her world. But when the Prince goes against tradition, Lydia is horrified at the violent physical abuse he is subjected to at the hands of his own family, and she realizes her prince is as much a prisoner as she is. I'll admit I was kind of expecting this to be some sort of banal human-kidnapped-by-aliens-for-mind-blowing-sex type of book, but was I ever wrong - and not just because with aliens you run the risk of mind-blowing being more literal than figurative! But I will tell you there is sex, and it is mind blowing, but mainly because of the physical differences between an alien and human. But those looking for nothing more than quick titillation will be disappointed. This is a novel for the intelligent reader, offering so much more than most books in this genre.
