The Tyrant Falls in Love, Volume 1 by Hinako Takanaga

I am so torn about this! I absolutely loved about 98% of this, but the 2% I didnt like are very hard to swallow for me. Because while the first time the two protagonists have sex *may* have started out as dub-con (which is debatable) it definitely turns into non-con and to say that that makes me uncomfortable would be an understatement, especially because I think the story would have been better if he had actually stopped when he was told to stop.

The sad thing is, however, that this sort of thing isnt unusual for this genre, and I admit that I have come to - accept isnt the right word, because that implies that I approve of it which I really dont, but its how it is and either I stop reading that sort of thing or I dont. And the truth is, the things I like about this genre in general and this series in particular at this point are more than the things I dont like, so Im going to keep reading this. I do wish there was more consensual sex happening, though. (I really am conflicted about this, however.)

Serial killer says he's killed around 90 people

Serial killers are loners who stalk strangers at night to later snatch, torture, and sexually assault them before finishing the deed. And, generally speaking, statistical evidence supports that stereotype—but only for men. She killed at least 31 people, many of whom were in her care.

Personality characteristics of the female serial murderer

A thought-provoking new study has for the first time presented an empirical comparison between male serial killers and female serial killers. The compelling sex differences in behaviors and crimes have been framed through a lens of evolutionary psychology, suggesting our hunter-gatherer history has manifested in the differences between male and female serial killers. Female serial killers are inarguably rare, but they do exist. Despite the potentially apocryphal story of famous FBI profiler Roy Hazelwood claiming "there are no female serial killers," it is thought that around 15 percent of all serial murderers are women. Marissa Harrison, a psychology professor at Pennsylvania State University, never considered how little literature there was on the topic of female serial killers until approached by a curious undergraduate student in Harrison's subsequent work was to initially document the means, motives and histories of female serial killers, primarily in the United States over the past years.

Male and female serial killers tend to choose their victims and commit their crimes in different ways, which may be due to thousands of years of psychological evolution, according to researchers. The researchers found that male serial killers tend to "hunt" their victims, who are often strangers to them. Female serial killers tend to "gather" their victims -- targeting people around them who they may already know, often for financial gain.

The purpose of this paper is to review and compare information obtained for four female serial murder perpetrators, exploring possible personality features that make the female serial killer unique. As this is the first project to explore the personalities of female serial murderers through data collected from the offenders themselves, it is primarily an exploratory study. The data presented were collected as part of a larger project, which solicited participation from incarcerated, suspected serial murderers. Upon agreeing to participate, each potential participant's background was searched to ensure they met the definition of a serial murderer. The participants were sent a survey packet containing measures related to demographics, psychopathology, psychopathy, and personality features.

  1. There is a mistaken cultural assumption, say Marissa Harrison and her colleagues, that women are, by their nature, incapable of being serial killers — defined here as murderers of three or more victims, spaced out with at least a week between killings.
