All she does is avert herself: avert her lips, avert her eyes. She lets him lay her out on the bed and undress her: she even helps him, raising her arms and then her hips. Little shivers of cold run through her; as soon as she is bare, she slips under the quilted counterpane like a mole burrowing, and turns her back on him.
Not rape, not quite that but undesired nevertheless, undesired to the core. As though she had decided to go slack, die within herself for the duration, like a rabbit when the jaws of the fox close on its neck. So that everything done to her might be done, as it were, far away. Now that I have a wait for my two main pending aspirations I think I'm gonna dig Silverthorn out and grind through Raymond Feist is really good. I can see 9 of his books on my shelf, most likely have read a few more then that though. Very good. Most of his characters aren't really very memorable or interesting.
There are a few exceptions.

Anyway, his books are well worth reading. Feist's Serpentwar series is absolutely awesome. One of the best series I've ever read. Rise of a Merchant Prince is the best one, a totally different style of story, with more economic and political intrigue than wizards and wars, and it really works. Also, the empire trilogy is feckin amazing.
Robert Jordan, and Terry Goodkind to a lesser extent, suffer from mental diarrhea. Too many words, not enough spirit. The result? Long and tedious series full of predictable characters and plots. Jordan's characters all act like spoiled, bratty, tantrum-prone children, regardless of their age. Goodkind is unhealthily fascinated by rape. I read through whatever book 8 is of the WoT, and the first 3 or 4 of the SoT, and I'm not touching either series again. Life's too short to pour out on that nonsense. The prose is so clean, the ideas feel fresh and original, and the characters are more believable despite being presented in drastically fewer words.

I like George R. Martin, too, though parts of it the whole Daenerys subplot really grate. I've only read the first two, for lack of time. I like an occasional low-magic milieu, though that seems to be changing as the series moves on. There is that slim chance of the movie though. The biggest problem with Feist is how freaking unrealistic his characters are.

The social structures just don't work that way. Don't bother reading more than one half. Read the Belgariad, and watch the exact same stuff happen in the Mallorean. Read the Elenium the best series and then watch the same stuff happen in the Tamuli. Totally repetitive. Finally, read "The Redemption of Althalus The Redemption of Althalus" for the characters from both the above particularly Belgarath and Flute smushed together into yet another world with the same story. It isn't as though there is a shortage of good fantasy out there.
Right now, there is quite alot in print that is quite good. Even back to old zelzny sort of good. Sure there is some crap out there, especially the rise of the romantic-fantasy crossover I am looking at you, Anne Bishop and Cecilia Dart-Thornton. So go find another series or three.

As all others have noted, jordan is pretty shitty. Sure, the first two were great fun, but it really went downhill. The authors listed above have quite a bit of good stuff, and there is a wealth of older material. He has an excellent fantasy trilogy, and a weird but even more excellent near-future sci-fi quadogy just made that word up out there. Plus, his writing style just amazes me. Highly, highly recommended.
I dunno, the first book of the otherland series was really good, but the later books kinda went down hill. I can't even finish the last book, it's so meh and just so you know I have read through the horror that is WoT. Well, it's a fantasy novel so anything can work any way he wants it to. As long as it's entertaining then it has fulfilled its purpose. Ars Legatus Legionis et Subscriptor. Ars Tribunus Angusticlavius et Subscriptor. Ars Praefectus et Subscriptor.

It turned out the answer to that question was no. They let Tony have all the death glory, while putting Steve out to pasture in a way that makes no sense either from a character standpoint or a logic one. Hey, so, the spoilers are about to flow freely here. That is, seemingly, exactly what he did. Going to the past to retire with Peggy would mean that he has to sit by while all sorts of bad things happen that he knows will happen. He lives the good life while Bucky Sebastian Stan is being used and abused as the Winter Soldier for 70 years.
With great power comes great responsibility, and Cap chose to spend the vast majority of his life simply not taking responsibility? Cap, at about 39 years old if you subtract his time in the ice, just gave up and chilled out until he was too old to help out anymore.
