    God's War reader åRead Ä connecfloor God's WarI picked this up after reading the first few sentences onlineNyx sold her womb somewhere between Punjai and Faleen on the edge of the desertDrunk but no longer bleeding she pushed into a smoky cantina just after dark and ordered a pinch of morphine and a whiskey chaser She bet all of her money on a boxer named Jaks and lost it two rounds later when Jaks hit the floor like an antiue harem girlThat is a kick ass entry to a story if you ask me Hang on this is a long reviewThis isscience fiction adventure noir maybe It's a world of mostly post apocalyptic Muslims of varying degrees of recognizability in which most technology is driven by insects Yes Also the two major nations of the planet have been at war forever and partly as a result of this women have come to dominate society Men get drafted as boys and sent to the front and women volunteer to fight too But on the home front at least in the country where we spend the most time women are soldiers and politicians an

    God's War reader åRead Ä connecfloor God's WarOrson Scott Card talks a lot in his How to Write Science Fiction and Fantasy about exposition and about how science fiction and fantasy readers react to it with different expectations than non genre readers Roughly summarized his point is that if you open a story with She mounted her graazchak an experienced genre reader will think Huh Okay there's a creature called a graazchak and it can be ridden I'll keep that in mind and keep an

    God's War reader åRead Ä connecfloor God's WarI am excited with feminism in SF or Fantasy stories because I can expect a really different way of lifethinking not just fictitious world with people who has same waythinking as oursReading this novel gave me that It gave exciting to me with Middle East like world building with its well known social politic conflicts Oh I love the settingAnd the main protagonist is one bad ass person She even seems extremely bad ass due to our standard of way of thinking eg she coldly sold her own wombI can't give 5 star because the the story itself is not exactly match my taste It seems unfair if I gave 5 star to first books of Malazan and First Law but not this debut novel My reasons are The story and characters are too dark and a bit tedious for my taste It does not have enough humor or heart warming dialogues The uote on back cover from SFX mentioned this book as fast pace thriller but for me the story is a bit slowIf you fine with pure dark fantasy go find this novel There is not enou

    God's War reader åRead Ä connecfloor God's WarI went through several transformations as I read this novel or four if you include a priori expectations after judging a book by its cover; for some weird reason I thought this title would be UF than a gritty SF title that masuerades as a fantasyIt's not really as confusing as I make it out to be No gods are involved in the telling of the tale just a bunch of people who believe in Allah and Jehova in a far future world that seems awfully like the Gaza Strip only filled with Magicians who control bugs by their will and shapeshifters Shifters Traditional military hardware is available ever

    God's War reader åRead Ä connecfloor God's War“Nyx sold her womb somewhere between Punjai and Faleen on the edge of the desert”The opening line in a book is the author’s first impression As a writer I’ve definitely found the first and last line a beast to get right Other times those beginning sentences are my favorite It all depends As a reader I will often get a vibe whether I’m going to love a book or not before I even open the cover and read those first lines But damn it can set the mood for sure With God’s War I was hooked immediately Tell me the above uote doesn’t capture your attention

    God's War reader åRead Ä connecfloor God's WarNight Shade Books the publisher has my number when it comes to whatever it is that catches my eye with cover pictures And then NSB hits my other sensory checkpoints when I pick up a book the books are a good size and heft for cradling in the hands or lap the cover material is a non glossy and yet satiny smooth finish that doesn't preserve unsightly greasy fingerprints and the pages and print are sturdy and don't smear I was actually hooked by the 2nd in the series for this and another one Infidel and Yarn and found the first for both series so that I could eventually read those 2nd onesWell that was a pointless paragraphThis is a mess of a world Echoes of Dune and Mad Max It'
