Hugh Cook said that this book was the one that made the Chronicles of the Age of Darkness commercially unviable. It's not hard to see why he said that. Yen Olass is hardly the typical fantasy heroine. First, four people are nearly stoned to death. It was brutal and masterfully written.

The women and the warlords.

She opened it, releasing the pungent smell of volsh, the thick niddin-grease used by the people of the north to keep out the cold and the wet. She smeared her cheeks with grease, then put away the box and pulled on her wadmal mittens. She drew the hood of the weather jacket well forward, then donned her snow-coat. The weight of its voluminous folds comforted her; she would be glad of the extra warmth out in the storm.

The women and the warlords coaaod-3. Part of the Chronicles of an Age of Darkness series, The Wishstone and the Wonderworkers by Hugh Cook is a strong action-orientated standalone novel that accomplishes several things that the other books were not able to. There is a certain air of familiarity here; the book presents a fairly straightforward plot, sticks to it, and offers plenty of swordfights, mystery, and humor throughout it. The Women and the Warlords and The Wizards and the Warriors both seemed to lose focus midway through, teetering on the edge of uncertainty, but not here. EPUB FB2 PDF TXT RTF.

Women and the Warlords is the true sequel to Wizards and the Warriors (book 1 in the series. However, it still contains the usual Hugh Cook elements in abundance - drama, excellent characterisation, invention and humour. It is set primarily in the Collosnon Empire and shows a different view of the world of Argan, but the careers of Morgan Hearst and various other characters in book 1 are advanced, and the story makes sense in the world context. The author takes a single main character, a female slave in the Collosnon Empire, and tells a complicated tale about her quest to live her life without male domination.

A copy that has been read, but is in excellent condition. Pages are intact and not marred by notes or highlighting. The spine remains undamaged.nAfter an oracle's prediction, Yenn Olas becomes involved in the life-long feud of the warlords of the Collosnon Empire. She was a witness to war, madness and wizardry, and would play a greater part in the events of her time that a mere oracle has any right to expect.

So many of Hugh Cook's novels in this series are experimental. This particular one is tough to love because it is so challenging. But now that I'm much deeper into the series, I appreciate this book all the more because of how difficult it was. The heroine undergoes such overwhelming hardships, and just when she finally finds some measure of love, peace, and stability, her lover abandons her. The only constant in his novels, which this one exemplifies profoundly (despite seemingly an outlier at first in taking the perspective of an unimportant female character on the fringes of much larger world events) is suffering. Without meaning, without the reward of growth or anything else. Just the suffering of the human condition, for rich and poor, men and women, the powerful and the weak.

Women and the Warlords is the true sequel to Wizards and the Warriors (book 1 in the series.) It is set primarily in the Collosnon Empire and shows a different view of the world of Argan, but the careers of Morgan Hearst and various other characters in book 1 are advanced, and the story makes sense in the world context.

The author takes a single main character, a female slave in the Collosnon Empire, and tells a complicated tale about her quest to live her life without male domination. Of course she ends up getting involved in world affairs, and altering history quite profoundly, but the book has a true narrative arc with a satisfying ending. The main character is good - she has grit and determination and a slight proclivity to violence, and she's likable. She also makes mistakes, sometimes serious, and you worry about her. A good protagonist for a good book.

I highly recommend it.

I'm not a fan of fantasy, but saw this recommended somewhere for its wit and writing. Wasn't engaging enough for me to finish it, but it does have some wit and somewhat more developed characters than much of the, what to call it, 'medieval-tone' fantasy. This is set on another planet apparently, so it could be called sf.

This is undoubtly the darkest and least "heroic" book in Hugh Cook's series: "Chronicles of an Age of Darkness", but it is a great read nonetheless. If you've ever wondered just how tough life would actually be for a women in a "realistic" medieval/fantasy world, look no further. The book never softens its grimly realistic tone by making artifical concessions to political correctness (which, in most modern fantasies, dictates that women should never be at a disadvantage to men, despite the implausibility of this in a typical fantasy/medieval world). Instead, we are given a believable account of a (determined and resourceful, but not super-human) woman's struggle to survive independently (i.e. without a man) in a very male-dominated and repressive culture. If this sounds like rather depressing reading, then you're not far wrong - this book is certainly less uplifting than any other in the series. However, it still contains the usual Hugh Cook elements in abundance - drama, excellent characterisation, invention and humour. Overall, it's not quite as good as some others in the series, particularly books 4, 9 and 10, but it's still a great read, and for a fan of the series, the future development of the careers of Morgan Hearst and Watashi is worth the purchase price by itself. Conclusion: well worth buying, especially if you're a fan of the series.
