There I was, merrily reading along in this science fiction book. Then WHAM, S. Ghali ruined it completely. How? They depicted the main female character as having an irresistible attraction to the alien who was her enemy minutes before, a member of a race she’s been raised to consider lower than animals. Of course, she doesn’t understand what she’s feeling, and I imagine she’ll fight it to some extent, but that was it for me.
