There was no eroticism in the love scenes. Schubach left a purity there which was so refreshing and lets the reader focus on the story. Plus the timeline of the love made sense. I mean with werewolves at your gate, you’re hardly just going to run off with a strange woman. Schubach is so smart with Daria’s character and incredibly brave, in my opinion, to write in first person.
The development is spot on, the characters are brilliant, and the legends and world building puts the reader in the story.
