For the record, I haven't read any of these, neither has any of my kids so I'm not shilling for the author here. What little I do know of them makes the series sound like some over-melodramatic chick-flick in print. But to protest against them because the wife is deeply in love with her husband and committed to making the marriage work and refuses to get a divorce or an abortion?!? What a sad comment on the society we live in.

Much ado about nothing.

Instead of protesting, they should try another section of the book store.

Isn’t it the case thought that modern feminists do view children and pregnancy as soul/health/time - sucking vampires. Given that, she is using the character’s pregnancy as a sort of mirror held up to society.

It’s one thing to fight for the “right” to have an abortion (and I can debate that topic all day), but to actively cheer it on is a mental illness.

Well, I’m afraid I’m not capable of judging vampire stories written for teenage girls. But I did have a look at Amazon, and it’s clear that the last novel in the series was polarizing. There are a lot of one star reviews and a lot of five star reviews.

I get the impression that the feminists and the pro-aborts are weighing in on it with all the one-star reviews. It’s war between more traditional girls who like romance and a happy ending, and future members of NOW who hate the idea of marriage and pregnancy.

Just my impression. I still have ZERO desire to read the books.

My 13 year old has read the first two and is in the middle of the third. However, I’ve been told (by a mom who has read it) not to get the 4th book for her as it has quite descriptive sex in it. I really don’t need my daughter reading that - even if it is in the context of marriage.
