Stardoc II: Beyond VarallanBeyond Varallan

Stardoc #2

S.L. Viehl

My rating: 1 of 5 stars


I was hoping that Viehl would move beyond the rape in a tasteful way.

But about 40 pages in, Cherijo tries to jump Reever’s bones, and thinks of their “previous time” [ie, the rape scene in book one] as something sexually stimulating.

What kind of sick author is Viehl? The victim of rape is saying it was good for her too? In most cases of rape, the victim reacts 1 of 3 ways:

1)They blame themselves and turn inward.
2)They say it doesn’t matter and then become sexual predators, of a sort, themselves
3)They can’t accept what happened, and so think of it as a good experience, ie, deny reality.

Cherijo exhibits classic symptoms of a psychologically broken woman.

And I’m supposed to enjoy reading about this? This is sick, sick, sick. Shame on Viehl.
