Start your review of Dark Prince Dark, 1 Write a review Shelves: kat-s-book-reviews , books-that-deserve-painful-death , kat-s-rants Once upon a time there was a young woman with a dream. A dream that women the world over could live in freedom as equals. That they would have the right that many women have been denied for hundreds of years, possibly more - to live healthy, happy lives with partners who love and respect them and provide for their needs.
Then that young woman read Dark Prince - and her dreams were shattered. Actually, this is all a lie because that young woman, the woman writing this review yes! It is I! I have a standard though considering the fact that I have read all ten of the BDB books may convince people otherwise but that aside I know I like the writing to be of a certain standard and for there to be characters of a certain quality and a plotline and world that has a certain depth and or immersive quality.
From what I read, this is less a novel and a How To Guide. First and simple step: 1. Do everything Raven Whitney does in the first chapter of her book. That really is her name. Or if, she had been born with black hair, it had all fallen out three weeks later as it did with me and grown back blonde.
Romanticize and imagine men like Prince Mikhail Dubrinsky are sexy and possibly good life mates. The book begins with Mikhail, lonely and contemplating ending his own life. The following excerpt was actually published by the way.
If I were it would probably be better: "Grief overwhelmed him, consumed him. He lifted his head and roared out his pain like the wounded animal he was. He could no longer bear to be alone.
He contacts back and love blooms. Okay, sounds alright, right? Our two protagonists psychically meet on page two. By page eleven, she has decided that he is mega creepy and decides to escape. Now, at this point the correct response would be: A Leave.
B Tell him to go get fucked and that if he so much as comes near you, you will scream bloody murder and have him arrested for assault.
C Give the psychopath your full name and casually head down to dinner. I leave you to guess which option our fuckwit heroine chooses. Correct, normal and balanced reaction from the male would be: A Realize that this woman is a perfect stranger and therefor perfectly entitled to receive attention from other men. B Decide to stake your claim next time you see her and offer to be her one and only - hoping earnestly that she will choose you. C Use your psychic powers to attempt to kill him - stopping only when the female protagonist desperately entreats you to stop.
By page seventeen our chauvinistic-pig and emotionally abusive asshole male protagonist has the female protagonist in his arms and is running through the forest to his home with her. Raven, being the clever and clearly cautious little monkey that she is asks, "Did you kidnap me or rescue me?
I think I know the answer to this one! His response? On page twenty, when any normal and sane person would have taken the first opportunity to give him a swift kick to the cajones and run like hell, the dumbest character I have ever come across She ignores all of his past behaviour because he somehow understands her.
He somehow connects to her. He reaches deep inside her to a place that has never been touched by anyone else before Why is this crap romantic?
Why does this spawn a series that sells lots of copies and makes the author lots of money? The writing is not purple prose. It is beyond purple prose. Everything about it is bad. Yet this robot has a thousand times more personality and charisma than our much touted and manly Prince Mikhail.
