Aaaaand just like that, I am DNFing @ 98%.
I get it that somewhere out there in a vast universe vampires feed on little human kids all the time, kill two or twenty without a second thought while at it too. You know, every day occurrence and all. Like dingoes and baby koalas, or my friend’s effing golden retriever and baby rabbits.
There is nothing “sexy” in this “paranormal erotica” when it comes to fucking and giving a “pleasant end” to a manipulated (mind fucked) 15 year old or draining toddlers empty, robbing kids of their lives to teach some bad boy a lesson. At least dingoes eat to survive.
I can take in a lot and of a different variety, I can also read about the death of a child in a concentration camp or at the hands of a serial killer, but that’s history and crime, however gruesome and unpleasant and heartbreaking, not “sexy erotica”.

Speaking of tags, I am not sure this particular book should be tagged "sexy ...paranormal erotica". All sexsinnes died a miserable death along with the kids. I don't see how the author expects readers to form a connection with this particular murderous character later in the series after mass murdering kids.
Bummer. I was enjoying it a lot up to this point :(
