A richly woven fantasy novel about the battle between the sexes and the struggle over ideology, power, and religion.
Take a moment and imagine foot prints on the sand, the foam on the beach washes back and forth leaving a thin imprint that divides between thought and action. If killing awakens a flutter of butterflies in your gut, would you commit the crime?
On an island where women rule, Daniel starts a revolution. During the night of his grandmother's death, Daniel decides to run with his emotions. From that moment on, he ventures out from the city of his birth and meets the characters that will fashion his future; a warrior, a deserter, a man and a woman.
This is not one of those books that is going to pull you in from the very start, there is a lot of detail at first, and it can make it hard to connect with the characters, which is what I like. However, I am glad that I kept reading, because it soon opened up into twists and turns, that kept me engaged.
I definitely think that this was a well written book, and if you can get past the first few chapters, and into the meat of the story, you will be hooked. Just imagine..an island ruled by women!
