's review

it was amazing

Science fiction people talk in terms of parallel universes, where all the possibilities of our actions—and their consequences—are lived out. But in this book there is simply the dichotomy of dark and light—that there is a self of the light, and a self who emerges out of the darkness. Both are distinct, yet twins. There is no perjuritive judgement of light and dark with good and evil. Just two separate, yet twin states. Enough has been written about how this book—indeed, the series—is a kind of feminist manifesto. I’m not sure of the writer’s intention. I will only say that it is refreshing to read a story, its world well developed, in which females, and female societies are at the forefront.
