Interesting world-building and what looked like it might have turned out to be a decent plot. However, after the first 50 pages of every-other-page descriptions of "rigid cock" I just couldn't take any more descriptions of stiffening or tented trousers. It is obviously from the first that the male protagonist is going to screw the heroine rather than kill her as he keeps insisting he intends to. The descriptions of the post-apocalyptic Bay Area and shamanistic magical systems are better-written as well, making me thinking this was originally a more straightforward fantasy that some editor told Strong needed to be a "paranormal romance" to sell. Strong apparently couldn't think how to incorporate that except by throwing in lots of mentions of penis and arousal. Too bad.
