Purple Skinned Princes And Princessesskinned princes and princesses centaur warriors airships sky pirates lost technology and lots of swordfighting It s a straight A Consortium of Worlds up sendp of Barsoom of course with Jane pending all the classic Burroughs tropes by bringing her modern Earth sensibilities to a planet stuck in a pseudo chivalrous past The first book was an affectionate tribute with enough adventure to make it fun to read in its own right and in the second book Jane returns to Waar and her purple lover boy Lan just as John Carter always managed to find a way back to MarsHaving spent all of the first book figuring out the way things work on Waar Jane spends the second book continuing to be shocked and disgusted that Waar is so nmodern and Letters Between a Catholic and an Evangelical unegalitarian While swapping John Carter chivalrous 19th century Southern gentleman with a 21st century badass babe who drops f bombs in every sentence was funny enough in the first book that there was no need to turn it into an explicit critiue of the original Barsoomian tales in Swords of Waar Jane becomes a lot explicitly feminist and populist as the plot involvesncovering a conspiracy among the church that has reigned supreme over Waar for centuries controlling the remnants of its ancient technology and its dwindling water reserves As Jane and her Waarian nobleman swashbuckle their way across Waar meeting old friends and making new enemies and cutting down platoons of priests and paladins she struggles with his sexist chivalric code and he struggles with the fact that his alien lover is bigger stronger and a formidable warrior
than him and not content to sit at home playing thehim and not content to sit at home playing the adoring damselWell enough but at times Jane s obtuseness was grating she is repeatedly gobsmacked that a pre industrial society ruled by noblemen and priests has not yet gotten around to democracy and eual rights and the climax in which a chief villain who has been hinted at since the first book emerges just seemed a little too on the nose and less a tribute to ERB than a repudiationThat said I enjoyed this swords and sky pirates adventure as much as I did the first one Jane is a lusty entertaining badass even if she does become a bit strident at times and she stands out by very much not being much of a thinker She just charges into trouble with her six foot sword and her demoness reputation and lays about herRecommended for fans of the Barsoom series of course who will appreciate all the references and probably not find Jane to be too terrible an antithesis of John Carter For. Jane Carver a hell raising redheaded biker chick from Coral Gables Florida had found a new life and love on Waar a savage planet of fearsome creatures and swashbuckling warriors Until the planet’s high priests sent her back to Earth against her willBut nobody keeps Jane from her man even if. Ourably of what I read but when I started reading Swords of Waar I went in with a very critical eye Those expectations had to be met after allWhen the novel begins it finds Jane back on Earth after she was sent back against her will presumably by the priests of Waar For the first act we see a very different Jane than we did in Jane Carver of Waar She is morose depressed regretful and generally miserable Even though I was prepared for something like this it still struck me on an emotional level that Nathan managed to capture those emotions and her feelings so well It got to the point that if I REACH OUT AND GIVE HER A HUG I reach out and give a hug I He takes her to the very depths of her depression to the point where she will do anything absolutely anything to go back to Waar and live the rest of her life with Lhan the nobleman of Waar with whom she fell in love with by the end of the first book and who she was with when the priests cameNathan doesn t dwell overlong on her misery however and she is soon back on Waar after a string of circumstances that will leave the reader grinning because of Nathan s tongue in cheek solution to the problem If you loved Edgar Rice Burroughs novels then I think you will definitely appreciate the irony of those scenesBut things aren t as smooth back on Waar as Jane had thought She comes back in the most nlikeliest of places the grand church of the priests of the Seven in the Oran capital itself And the priests are most definitely not happy to see that the she demon is back and with a vengeance to boot From there the narrative is all about Jane and Lhan discovering the deepest and darkest secrets of the church foiling assasinations organising religious rebellions As Richard Dean Anderson s Colonel Jack O Neill would say its all about sticking to the man and doing the right thing Incidentally I can totally see Jane saying something like that since Nathan fills the narrative by several one liners where Jane references pop culture and the likeFor the entirety of Swords of Waar Jane is a very different woman Her experiences on Waar have changed her and although Oran society is backwards in many ways such as slavery and misogyny she couldn t be happier anywhere else as long as she has Lhan with her The romance between the two of them is ite stormy with ample disagreements since she has Lhan with her The romance between the two of them is Unforeseen (Kingdom Keepers, uite stormy with ample disagreements since is capable of physical feats the likes of which Lhan can at best only dream about He may be a better swordsman and be well versed in Oran culture but she has raw power on her side and an ingenuity the likes of which no Oran can match In that respect they make for a great complementary couple so different from each other and yet so similar This is a great followp to Jane Carver Of Waar Lots of action and smart ass commentary from Jane But what I really liked is the growth and changing dynamics of Jane and Lhan s relationship There are some incredibly tender moments between the two And even when he is being a stubborn putz and an ass Lhan is pretty damn lovable Makes me wish I had my own little purple dude to love on I cannot wait for the next installment in what is turning into a Nascars Wildest Wrecks uirky and favorite series for me This is the second book in the series and it s not bad but it s not good either Jane Jae en in the local language is from Earth She found her way to Waar by mistake the first time and at the end of the first book she got sent back home by the priests of the Temple of Ormolo After managing to find another way back to Waar she sets out to rescue her lover Lhan and endsp in a A Land More Kind Than Home uest to save the ruler of the lands The priests want to assassinate him and replace him because they want absolute power over everyone and the ruler blocks them from this It also turns out there is a sub plot that has the priests stealing all the water in the land causing drought and suffering and Jane and Lhan manage to endp destroying the alien technology allowing this to happen bringing the rains back to Waar It feels like there should be another book and I d be happy to read it if it ever gets writte.
