Beneath the Gods Tree S Kaeth

This was me second visit to S Kaeth's fantasy world, the first being Between Starfalls. I again found the world interesting and the story generally well written. If I have any critisim of the book it would be around some of the dialogue. Specifically some of the dialogue between Taunos and Amanah as they're figuring out if they're going to go forward with being a couple.

"Gender and the Writer's Imagination" (2014)
Mary Suzanne Schriber

1987 A group of women sitting on a couch

In the image, there is a group of women engaged in a social gathering, comfortably seated on a couch placed within an indoor setting.
Their attire suggests a casual, yet thoughtful choice of clothing, which adds to the intimate and relaxed atmosphere of the scene.
Each individual's facial expression, captured with remarkable clarity, contributes to the overall feeling of camaraderie and warmth among the group.
The presence of a book suggests that their gathering might involve a shared interest in reading or discussion, further emphasizing the intellectual and social bonds between them.
The room is illuminated, possibly by natural light streaming through a window, highlighting the details of their surroundings, including the subtle textures of the couch and the walls.
This scene is rendered in a striking black and white palette, which not only adds a timeless quality to the image but also focuses attention on the expressions, interactions, and the intricate play of light and shadow, enriching the narrative conveyed by the photograph.

I'm giving up on a . It's by RF Kuang. On paper it sounds great! Oxford, academia, magic, language. Right up my alley
But it's incredibly tedious. None of the characters have any personality. They're just like outlines without much content. And then she takes every opportunity to tell, and show, and tell again. Get this. The British empire is evil.
I'm not objecting to that as a historical truth. Its just repetitive and very boring.

Just had to get it out. I'm pissed it wasn't good!
