GODSWAR KAMERON HURLEY PDF

I grew up in the 80s, when fantasy fiction largely meant the Lord of the Rings-esque fantasy world or the parallel worlds fantasy, the same fantasy setting juxtaposed with the real world. I live in a world that is broader, more complicated, and more importantly, has even more stories to offer that reflect different cultures and perspectives. The most satisfying stories have echoed that philosophy, stretching genre conventions, drawing upon a wider range of cultural traditions and bridging genres. After serving a prison sentence, she gives up the independent work and recruits a crew. Rhys is a magician and immigrant from Chenja, where women wear the veil and men are head of household. When Nyx is recruiting for her team, Rhys agrees to work with her.

I grew up in the 80s, when fantasy fiction largely meant the Lord of the Rings-esque fantasy world or the parallel worlds fantasy, the same fantasy setting juxtaposed with the real world. I live in a world that is broader, more complicated, and more importantly, has even more stories to offer that reflect different cultures and perspectives.

The most satisfying stories have echoed that philosophy, stretching genre conventions, drawing upon a wider range of cultural traditions and bridging genres. After serving a prison sentence, she gives up the independent work and recruits a crew. Rhys is a magician and immigrant from Chenja, where women wear the veil and men are head of household. When Nyx is recruiting for her team, Rhys agrees to work with her.

For over a century, Nasheen and Chenja have been at war. This is one book I would have benefited by reading on Kindle with Wikipedia at hand. Social and religious divisions are further complicated by a marginalized class of people who have carry shapeshifting genetics. She had run to the desert and the cities for anonymity.

And to die for God. None of that had worked out very well. Nasheen is a matriarchal government and culture; men are sent off to war and only allowed home if they reach forty. Sexuality is open and lesbian relationships are normalized, although male homosexuality is still somewhat hidden. Male or female; everyone has mixed motives; varied upbringings and ethics—or lack thereof—drive them towards their decisions.

As is often noted, everyone is fighting the war in their own way. He felt more alive here than he had anywhere else in his life, among those who spent their days coming up with new and interesting ways to kill his people.

Then there are the bugs, a world-building aspect that takes the story to a whole new level of uniqueness. Some of the technology is hybrid-organic, and the bugs play a role in powering vehicles, lighting rooms and in healing. Magicians are the only men granted an exception to serving at the war front. I thought it flowed reasonably well given the range of components, but it was the kind of wind that pushes you a little harder, making for an exhilarating sail.

The first forty pages are virtually an independent short story; the development of the larger plot comes later, with roots in the prologue.

I thought the relatively straightforward plot balanced the complicated setting and ethical issues nicely. It was engrossing, interesting, and occasionally melancholic.

Nyx is truly a belle dame sans merci— she has a very bloody, culturally sanctioned job, but her lack of compassion also extends to herself. It provides an avenue for compassionate development of a deeply flawed human. Clarke and British Sci-Fi Association nominations. But if you are looking for complicated, unusual fantasy with a fast-moving plot, give this a try.

If you plot them on a spectrum from the time-travel military SF of The Light Brigade to the women-only generation-starship The Stars Are Legion lovingly nicknamed Lesbians in Space , and the gloriously messy bug-punk mercenaries of her Godswar Trilogy that started it all off, Worldbreaker is the most overtly fantasy and the most Epic , but there are still elements one might associate with SF — alternate universes, time travel, satellites, and some very alien flora and fauna, including the types of people and societies. But it has magic, chosen ones, world-shattering conflicts, politics and everything else you could want from an epic fantasy. Several years, in fact. In a way, it read like debut epic fantasies often do — bursting at the seams with amazing, original ideas, but a bit messy and not always easy to follow. The second volume, in , improved for me on the storytelling, streamlining some of the plot, picking up the pace, and delivering some truly shocking moments.
