The first work of Carter I read (in an university English class) and my favourite of her works.


On my re-read I was surprised how violent and dark it is! (Funny what drops out of your mind.) Still wonderful, but oh so very primal. Felt that I reacted to the book much more emotionally this time.

86.0% "Whew, fin centaurs. I did not remember how... fucked up, or rather, primal this book is. The absence of motality in the harsh light of myth, dream and unfettered imagination."
