Sex Quotes in Hyperion
How we cite our quotes: (Chapter.Paragraph)
Kassad felt the bloodlust build in him with turgid strength. (2.445)
Kassad's word choice during battle feels less like something out of a war novel, and more like something out of a Harlequin romance novel.
Kassad's sense of honor and sanity called out for him to stop the slaughter but his almost sexual bloodlust overpowered any objections. (2.471)
There's no "almost" here, buddy. He's used the term "bloodlust" about three times in as many pages, which we're pretty sure puts the "lust" into "bloodlust."
