a bit too gory for me but she makes for a powerful read,
This review is from: The Daylight Gate (Hammer) (Paperback)
It has scenes of really horrific violence, but i feel the author uses the theme of sexual violence and sexuality to really highlight these poor womens powerlessness in what were very grim times,at the same time it highlights there spirit. it is a very angry and defiant book there is a rape scene that leaves the woman still defiant, until she looses her tongue, again these women had no voice and were vcictimised because they were vulnerable. i can't say that what i have read was enjoyable,(i wont finish this book)but the author makes a poweful and very angry statement.
