really liked it
bookshelves: 20th-century-fiction, bought-2015, fantasy

This was very meta-fantasy. There was a standard Fantasy story where the man was dragged from the 20th century to fight for humanity in a holy war against the evil "other". Except in this case that's really not what was going on, and the action was really everything that was happening inside the main characters mind. I like how his ideas dissolved and it was no longer "race" that made someone good or bad, when the "humans" committed terrible acts he realised he could no longer follow them, and wasn't their champion at all. This was standard fantasy with much more going on. I'm looking forward to reading more.
