really liked it

This book has overturned everything I thought I knew about what fantasy could do. Usually concernted about good and evil and personal virtue, Storm Constantine has turned fantasy into a potently charged social commmentary by the simple act of making her main characters, the Wraeththu, humanity's successors, an androgynous hermaphroditic race - a very sexual race and a very tribal race. This story is about identity and belonging, about cruelty and ostracism. It's about finding one's place in a strange world and finding the ones you love. If you like your fantasy gritty, or are looking for something that is outside of what you know then I highly recommend this.
