Interesting, but still rough and rather underdeveloped. I did like it, though it wasn't...visceral enough. This one lacked an edge of raw brutality, yet also wasn't quite completely cold and calculated. The prince cared, but there also seemed a subtle edge of indifference. Bao...his name is Bao. How can I possibly take that seriously?
It wasn't really sexy between them. There wasn't enough tension, enough of that visceral edge that would have sucked us into the turmoil. We instead get told of some turmoil and see a fine pantomime of it.
so much unrealized potential...
