There’s been a big resurgence these days of the sword and sorcery subgenre in Fantasy.
The Amazon Brigade is an elite fighting unit, often the best of the best or damn near close to it, that is composed entirely of women.
Naturally, they should never be underestimated, for they can and will kick your ass, potentially easily.
I guess it might sit better with readers who really like fantasy stories with typical tropes, which I'm not at the moment, so take my review with a grain of salt.
I found Soulwoven to be full of interesting ideas, especially when it comes to the characters and their relationships.
I'm tempted to chalk this to a few strange reactions on the characters' behalf.
Among other things, I'm still not sure why the Sh'ma brought the group to his leader, knowing all too well how it may end.A dream of moving statues, shattered chains, and seething clouds of darkness sets the brothers on a journey into Litnig Jin has spent his life yearning for the power to weave the souls of the dead into magic.When a dragon sinks its claws into their nightmares, their lives will change forever. The bloom of first love gives Cole something to believe in.This being about fiction, they're usually at least moderately attractive. Litnig Jin has spent his life yearning for the power to weave the souls of the dead into magic.Maybe their relationship will be developed in the next book, but I thought it would've been interesting to see more of it here, because of how Litnig saw it, and how it might have affected his own evolution. He wasn't so much the oaf he seemed to be, and the story didn't want for opportunities of making him turn towards the dark side, so to speak.)Another issue for me was the pacing.
