I brought his book because it held promise of politically and socially complex fantasy. Turns out it's little more than privileged white male ego fantasy. In the first three chapters, we meet some women. They are whores, rape-victims, mute mystic savages, substitute mothers and a wife who allowed herself to be seduced so the seducer could bring disgrace on her husband. Oh, and there's the sorceress who killed five men and must be hunted down like an animal, who also seems to the only woman in the book who enjoyed sex on her own terms.
I'm not going to waste my time reading any more. Maybe I'll use the book to grow mushrooms instead.
