Daughter of the Blood

Finished reading Daughter of the Blood today, and overall I liked it. The characters interest me and the plot pulled me along just fine. The only problem I have with it is a certain degree of fanficness, or what feels to me like fanficness. Especially the male sexual slavery. Male sexual slavery, with bouts of torture, reads to me like bad fanfic. Maybe fanfic got it from books like this, rather than the other way around, but the similarity is there.

I've immediately dived into the second book in the trilogy, where I see that the characters the first book made me care about now loathe each other due to misunderstandings. Sigh.

This makes the books sound bad, and I don't think they are. I'm definitely enjoying them. I just do see some problems.
