    Cool woman swordswoman when there were few in fantasy fiction in interesting take on what it means to be a warrior and a hero.

    Not a good book, but I admire it, particularly for its time, on having a strong female hero and not just strong in the masculine no feelings sort of way, but strong in a coming to grips with some heavy shit kind of way.

    This is a 1 star, Dorothy Parker review That is an accurate assessment of my experience.Five chapters That s all it took And as it was a physical book, the opportunity to evaluate its aerodynamic capabilities was not to be denied The gouge in the drywall will need to be fixed.It appears that this is the first book written by the author It showed.In five chapters, there was no character development Why was she there Why did she want to go adventuring fighting What personality quirks endeared her to the reader..or made her interestingly repellant.Nothing Within the story of the book, the heroine was broke and out of work Within the text, it is demonstrated that she isn t very good at heroing At least, she doesn t demonstrate any special capacity for it.There is a bit of misogyny expressed by other characters that seems to suggest that what she lacks is an opportunity rather than lacking in the ability It was about that time that I found the author s statement at the back of the book Apparently, this book was an attempt to illustrate the patriarchy The book accomplishes that task poorly by using a character that is ill prepared for any opportunity that might come her way.The primary sins of this book are that it fails to present interesting characters and places an unsubtle polemic objective before the task of telling a good story I read several other books both immediately before and immediately after that subtly and effectively did a better job of discussing issues surrounding equality than this awful load of offal.Heroing might have reached the rare achievement of being a book that will go in the dustbin instead of to a used book store or a Little Free Library.

    I honestly really enjoyed Heroing I went in expecting then my fair share of 80s cheese, a fun little adventure, and hopefully a passable lead But Heroing blew past my expectations Jiana is complex and compelling, I actively wanted to see her succeed and defeat her demons abHugh balances a world that is interesting without being imposing, and his language in the book is phenomenal Action feels like action, and is exciting to read When the book chooses to slow down and enjoy the world and its characters it thrives This book is certainly not PC, but I don t think it veers so far into that realm that it becomes unenjoyable or invalid I did have a few problems with the romance in this book it s interesting but can get pretty damn uncomfortable, especially in some scenes But what I do like is that Jiana is never weak for no reason She never slips into the Damsel in Distress trope and she never becomes an absolute Mary Sue She s strong in some areas, weak in others, and she grows Heroing is a feminist book, is an exciting book, and is far complex then it has any right being.
