Yeah!!! Grown up Fantasy

it was nice to see Mr. Anderson tackle high fantasy with a mature audience in mind.. i look at all these reviews and see half the crowd taking about there being too much sex in the book like its some smutty romance novel, there were four sexual situations in the whole story and none of them were very explicit or particularly long., such a tiresome and doll complaint for a truly good fantasy novel and I'm pretty sure a lot of young adults are sexually active anyway! so when i see comments like not young adult i think people really mean not for children and i would hope not when the series backdrop is set in a world at war and is pretty damn violent.

what makes a good fiction novel is knowing what your reading is not real but having it grounded in realistic situations.It's even more important in epic fantasy and this story mixes some ugly truths of life in very well, giving it a lot more substance the Author tackles hard subjects in a tasteful way by implying atrocities like genocide and rape making his villainous characters even more repugnant but not making me squirm through the gritter bits...

great story, great narration ...five stars all around...The Godling Chronicles were okay but this series has made me a fan, cant wait for the next installment!

Way too much sex.

Is there anything you would change about this book?

The sex and manipulation is too stereotypical. Very disappointing that this book was not appropriate for teens after the Godling Chronicles was such an excellent read.

What was most disappointing about Brian D. Anderson’s story?

The main female character, Lilanora, is basically presented as a whore who teases and beds the main male characters on a whim almost as soon as she is introduced. She cruelly torments Cat who is still in love with Ethan who is oblivious. Men aren't this thick and usually figure out when they are being played, but not our hero. It is hard to root for a hero who is this slow...Although the end puts the two women on a more even playing field, Lilanora is hardly taken to task for anything she has done to the friendship of the other three primary characters. It is difficult to read Lilanora's activities and treatment of others and see her as one of the good guys.

Any additional comments?

Based on my experience with previous books by Anderson, I was embarrassed for recommending this book to family members before I read it myself. I was furious when I was called by family members who informed me that this book was not what I thought it was... I lost count of "F" bombs and various forms of crude genital references. After reading it myself, I had to apologize for the recommendation.
