Coneixement comú



If exploring the slipperiness of gender means putting a child in between hollow twodimensional clicheés of men and women to you this might be just the book for you.
Men are brave full of pride eager to fight in battle and slaughter and the only other thing on their minds might be fucking and drinking.
Women only want to turn men's eyes, wear pretty clothes, jewellery, want dolls and be equals to men except they are portrayed as superior in every way but shunned nonetheless because men are pigs.
There are a few better fleshed out characters I'll grant but that is only because court intrigue and plot require some motivation for people to not just act like pitiful stereotypes.
I originally gave this book 3 stars but after reading and suffocating in the second one which gets much worse in all the aforementioned aspects I have to correct this down to 2 as my rating was in good faith to the shortcomings being resolved and more depth to become visible later. This is most certainly not the case.
In short, big parts of this series are shallow, undifferentiated and sexist despite the attempt of being the exact opposite.

This was an incredible read! I especially love how much work Flewelling did to queer so many fantasy tropes!! Beautifully written, engaging and most of all INTERESTING in a genre that is hard to keep fresh! Can't wait to start book two!

I can't adequately express how excited I am about this author and her vision for this incredible series that breaks through so many walls. Book number two only added fuel to the fire.

As with the first two books in this series, this was both beautifully written, and very entertaining. I loved the way this prequel set me up for the series for which LF is so well known already - a series which I am very much looking forward to diving into! It was beyond refreshing to read a fantasy trilogy that grew and strengthened as it progressed, instead of petering out at the end.

I'd absolutely recommend this read!
