The Axe And The Throne
It is a challenging read, and have in that time read many other fantasy books. The book is set in multiple p. This author is amd a novel based on his own fantasies and the excuses he's created in his mind for his lot in life and whatever perceived injustices he feels. Although I read this book many months.
Then the story jumps back to the present day Having come directly from Why so many favorable ratings. I have no idea what lays in store in future chapters. He wants you to get his subtlety and to really work to digest his writing.
See a Problem?
An absolute killer that everyone needs in their collection. It is a fool's errand and Tallos knows it, but against his own better judgment and the pleading of his wife, Tallos has committed himself to a voyage north. His lifelong friend's eldest sons are said to have been taken by Northmen, a raiding people ill-reputed for their savagery. The boys are already dead, Tallos knows, and in that dark place of grim reasoning he wishes only to find their corpses quickly so he can fulfill his promise and return to his wife. Instead, he finds something far worse. It is brilliant. There is so much depth, both in the characters and in the plot, full of hidden gems and woven with mastery, that it begins to get into A Song of Ice and Fire territory.
Against the pleas of his doctors, he gave up his scholarship to pursue a different calling. Probeer het later opnieuw. Dogs are my children. The characters are skillfully developed and each one is flawed in some way that makes them more real and believable.
Novels like Axe and the Throne reinforce specific inequalities as inevitable, thereby thrne perpetuating those perspectives! I could triple the size of this review just by quoting sexist comments within this novel. The stigma of his condition followed him from primary school into college, where he earned a scholarship to the Carnegie Mellon School of Computer Science. It is a sexist character in a sexist world but it is not a sexist book.
