BE TRUE BUT IT S NICE TO IMAGINE SUCH true But it s nice to imagine such I liked a lot of the minor characters Zarmell who s something of it s nice to imagine such things I liked a lot of the minor characters Zarmell who s something of cougar uadra the Hadra s councillor Halli Sair s first lover Yima Lar Sharven just generally a good cast of characters overall I totally thought they were going to have that epic battle against the Zarn and use their Kersh to kill him but I guess I should be glad they idn t have to I m not convinced they won t have to Singing the Law do it eventually thoughOverall a good book I will read by Diana Rivers at some point i loved this book and the hadra series so much i read journey to zelindar first though chronologically it is the third in the series but it was written first i readaughters of the great star next it s first chronologically written second i m ordering them through interlibrary loan and since they Alchemic don t come uickly i get to enjoy the anticipation of their arrivali love the women the characters their special powers asaughters of the great star and their joining with the Witches and the travelling people to learn from each other and support each other and to face the threats from their culture and to begin to make a life together as tribes of loving powerful womenHIGHLY RECOMMEND. Other and are all lovers of women This is Sair's own tale of her life and adventures among the Hadra a journey that will finally take her to the fabled city of Zelinda. ,
One of my favorites read in 2019 This Series Thoroughly I Like The this series thoroughly I like the the author weaves explanations the new world into the story with a purpose Even the writing of the story has a reason connected with the world I could not We Sell Drugs decide whether I like the main character or not but that made Sair that much interesting I wanted to read this bc I haven t read a whole ton of older lesfic This book was published in 1987 so not exactly ancient but still older than my usual And it s kind of obscure so I waselighted to see my library system had it
#Anyways it s kind of a lesbian feminist utopian fantasy sort of thing #it s kind of a lesbian feminist utopian fantasy sort of thing a tribe of horse riding women though they aren t nomads like I thought at first who live without men and love one another and possess magical powers through the GoddessSo you get a lot of peaceful utopia type passages with our MC Sair living with the Hadra tribe and learning how they live forming relationships with a couple women and having casual sex with one or two others and having all sorts of spiritual experiences On the other hand the Hadra exist in stark contrast to the rest of this book s universe Sair herself initially comes from a highly regulated patriarchal society and the book begins with Journey to Zelindar Sair is the pampered Problem Solving in Data Structures Algorithms Using C++ daughter of an upper caste family until a brutal gang rape changes her life forever Abandoned and left foread she walks to Er first being married off to an unwanted husband and then being the victim of a gang rape and then traveling to the ocean in hopes of committing suicide I was relieved that the arkest part of this book was over fairly uickly but the repercussions continue throughout
#sair efinitely has some form of ptsd and #definitely has some form of PTSD and only slowly recovering from her trauma and though the Hadra may live in peace and love the rest of the world Not so muchAnyways A couple spare thoughts I liked Sair and Tarl s relationship a lot but this book efinitely is no romance It s an open relationship often tempestuous and at the end seems like it "Might Be On The Verge "be on the verge breaking though this is treated as the way things go sometimes than as some sort of tragedy Anyways Tarl is my kind of girl Utopian literature kind of gets to you sometimes bc of the assumption that if you just had the perfectly formed society people in the society would be perfect One reason it s easier to write ystopian literature I suppose Journey to Zelindar only partly falls into this trap It Crossing the color line in American politics and African American literature definitely shows the Hadra as fallible people who still argue and have theirifferences And sometimes makes fun of the Hadra s culture a little for example their vegetarianism Still I can t help but He ocean to kill herself Instead she is rescued by the Hadra wild riding women with strange powers women who ocean to kill herself Instead she is rescued by the Hadra wild riding women with strange powers women who their horses by consent speak mind to mind with each.
