Born of Night  - Sherrilyn Kenyon I had some issues with the agency of the heroine. Namely, her role in the story was damsel in distress and only damsel in distress. She never actually contributed anything other than emotional support to the resolution of the book's conflicts; she just got in the way or got kidnapped or whatever, needing to be rescued no fewer than five times. There's one part where the hero thinks to himself something like, "I've never met another person besides me who is more in control of their emotions than she is," which totally cracked me up because she just seesaws between being a crying mess and being overtly pissed off (mostly crying though). Blah.Guess I'm still looking for some sci-fi romance I'll actually enjoy...
