important. However I can't really see Lynn writing graphic non-con
scenes. So that's never really been an issue for me. (I know, I'm
incoherent and my sentences are rather non-related, but sorry?) I
also enjoyed the "sex scenes" in Nightrunner, if only because they
were done in a humorous manner. Like with the balcony doors open in
TM. The let you know what was going on without overwhelming.
I'm turning 18 this Novemeber and would like to say that for the most
part the books I've read since I was 13 or 14 have had sex scenes. It
was never an attraction then, though it wasn't a deterent, either.
Even Mercedes Lackey had a "sex scene" in The Last Herald Mage
trilogy, first book.
I think part of what really got me hooked on LitS was the fact that
there really *wasn't* sex in it, or at least not much. (I'm in the
process of rereading it...again. :-) ) I'd just finished Melanie
Rawn's Exiles series (what's written of it, anyway. *is bitter*) and
was looking for some fun. Who wouldn't want to read about spies and
noblemen and a whole new world after dealing with rape and death and
gore? I mean, I liked Rawn's books, I'm still waiting for book 3 to
come out, but...yeah.
And the scenes in the Tamir Trilogy are tastefully done. Lynn should
keep writing as she wants to write and not change her style simply
because everyone else is writing graphic sex! >_<
Right. I'm leaving now.
