    I guess I d call this dark fantasy since there is little hope throughout the book It s also not a book I, personally, would give to anyone under 15 years old The book clearly implies, though never actually states, that Dar was raped repeatedly by her father and both Dar and a young girl come very close to being raped on several occasions While most of the sex, rape, brutality, and killing occur off screen and none of it is explicit or gratuitous, the horror and danger of her surroundings I guess I d call this dark fantasy since there is little hope throughout the book It s also not a book I, personally, would give to anyone und...

    First of all, I ll start explaining why I haven t given 5 stars to this book, which I liked quite a lot I m excessively sensitive to turning points of view In mine point of view it shouldn t be done in the same paragraph, and only with precaution in the same chapter This book is mainly wrote by Dar s point of view, in such an intimate way that it could have been wrote using the first person singular Therefore, when the author suddenly throw her readers in another character s mind, it s a First of all, I ll start explaining why I haven t given 5 stars to this book, which I liked quite a lot I m excessively sensitive to turning points of view In mine point of view it shouldn t be done in the same paragraph, and only with precaution in the same chapter This book is mainly wrote by Dar s point of view, in such an intimate way that it could have been wrote using the first person singular Therefore, when the author suddenly throw her readers in another character s mind, it s a choc the story a very good one, very immersive sounds artificial for a little while It s a shame.Putting this weakness aside, King s property is an excellent fantasy s read no unhealthy lengthy horrors descriptions, even if Dar s life is a harsh one, in a cruel world Brut...

    Dar is a poor country girl conscripted into the army The soldiers are vicious scum who seize women, whom they brand, rape, and use as slave labor in their camps The miserable lives of the women, fighting for scraps of food, are generally short and end in violent deaths as they are flogged, decapitated for bounties, perish of malnutrition or childbirth, or are simply killed Also, the women must serve the Orcs, as well Orcs are generally indifferent to humans but may strike crippling blows at Dar is a poor country girl conscripted into the army The soldiers are vicious scum who seize women, whom they brand, rape, and use as slave labor in their camps The miserable lives of the women, fighting for scraps of food, are generally short and end in violent deaths as they are flogged, decapitated for bounties, perish of malnutrition or childbirth, or are simply killed Also, the w...

    This is a fantasy book that I downloaded for free almost seven years ago, and I m sorry I didn t get around to trying it sooner I don t think I ve ever seen anybody talk about it, and it doesn t seem to be very highly rated, but I actually really liked it It s not a book I d recommend without reservation though it s pretty bleak The story focuses on a young woman named Dar whose family treats her terribly, culminating in the event at the beginning of the book where her family gives her away This is a fantasy book that I downloaded for free almost seven years ago, and I m sorry I didn t get around to trying it sooner I don t think I ve ever seen anybody talk about it, and it doesn t seem to be very highly rated, but I actually really liked it It s not a book I d recommend without reservation though it s pretty bleak The story focuses on a young woman named Dar whose family treats her terribly, culminating in the event at the beginning of the book where her family gives her away to the King s army to serve as a slave to a regiment of Orcs The story focuses on Dar s adjustment to h...

    The title and premise caught my eye, and while the summary on the back makes it sound meh it was much better then I expected.It s clich , but enjoyably clich I found Dar charming, if not terribly relatable, and the prose reads smooth and the plot moves forward at a wonderful pace even though the writing isn t the most polished I love the twist on Orcs, and their culture is the strongest aspect of the book The weakest part, for me, was the first ...

    This book was written by a man, the first for my vaginal fantasy shelf, cool I like this book, I didn t love it, but I really liked it I think boys and girls could enjoy it equally I was just sometimes not loving the main character as much as I would like, and some of the motivations got blurried and were c...
