Cranky Romance & Grumpy Erotica

In The Heart Of Darkness - "The Heart Of Darkness" is not m-m romance, but m-m gore and of this I was, more or less, warned. What caught me unprepared is the fact that Zu, the bad guy, has more action than the protagonists. This thing could have been original, but this Zu guy seems a grotesque caricature of a Dom. If I take off the gore (used as a means to grab the reader's attention), I found his character totally obvious.Regarding the main characters I found them undeveloped (as indeed, the description of the new world/society in which they live) and certainly the cliffhanger does not help.One last thingThe pretty facade of the little redhead melted away, replaced by a leathery black-skinned creature.Didn't anybody, before publication, perceived that this sentence sounds totally wrong?
