    Smooth writing but a deeply flawed setting

    While the writing is still entertaining, I have at this point in the series decided to stop reading these books because I am having problems with the setting and the world view the author displays. Also, plot wise, this particular episode is rather flawed. The first book in this series I rather enjoyed, because it was fresh and dared to go outside the beaten track. However, by now this series has fallen into a pattern I have issues with. Firstly, I find it irritating that every happy ever after is reliant on the woman getting pregnant asap and start producing as many babies as possible straightaway. I wholeheartedly do not agree with women being breeding machines. Secondly, every single happy pairing is secured by magic that means none of these characters will ever stray or fall out of love. That's not a relationship, that's a fake, a real relationship takes work and effort. Thirdly, I have serious issues with this world setting in which child marriages are the norm and the Royal Balls are basically prostitution rings in a posh setting. I know the author clearly states in her notes she's doing this because she wants to show how wrong this is, but she's still glorifying it because it produces happy endings. Fourthly, I disagree with the elitist take that every single "rags to riches" angle is immediately disqualified because of course all the main characters turn out to be Royals or super rare magic holders all along. This book, specifically, was weak plot wise in that I had absolutely no idea what drives the female lead, the relationship makes very little sense, and honestly the agents in the background are more interesting than the main characters. All in all, I enjoyed the writing style of these books but I have come to have such issues with the setting and plotting that I cannot recommend this series.
