Oh yes, instead of, oh, talking and warning Cindy, let's attempt to kidnap and make decisions for her! To quote Etienne, "I'm taking control." "...and what is mine I take and keep safe." Luckily, Etienne realizes if he continues this way, he will lose her.
Nice touch with the demons, but the other stuff falls flat. (Cindy being a virgin (of course!). The sex being magical. Whatever).
