A Taint in the Blood by S.M. Stirling
My rating: 1 of 5 stars
I quit. I can’t read this. The second time a rape is sketchily described and not treated as something horrible has been too much. Plus all the telepathy scenes are impossible to figure out–it just needs a clearer layout!–because telepathy is shown the same way as stream-of-consciousness thought. It’s endlessly confusing. Add distasteful on top of it and I just can’t force myself to continue. There are some interesting ideas about vampires but nope, I can’t ride it out.
