Nathan Long ´ 3 summaryThis is the second book in the series "and it s not bad it s "it not bad but it s good either Jane Jae en "IN THE LOCAL LANGUAGE IS FROM "the local language is from 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 ends up in a 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 end up 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 written This is actually better than the first in the Jane Carver series presenting a much better constructed story while preserving the spirit of ERBhttpopionatorwordpresscom20121 I did not know this was a seuel but there some really good news in this You don t need to know or have read it though I have already made plans to do ust that This picks up after the first book but you uickly get up to speed on where the story is up to which I found a refreshing change More great news about this is that it is really very funny Paragraph of paragraph has some wonderful little line that makes you chortle whether you want to or not I found myself chortling uite a lot This is the comedy version of John Carter or the Barsoom books whichever you ve read or seen and this is what it would have read like if Edgar Rice Burroughs has his body stolen by Nathan Long There is very little seriousness in it but a lot of gags about drink being deranged and trying to find a way back to 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. Ds of Waar Jane becomes a lot explicitly feminist and populist as the plot involves uncovering 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 the pampered adoring damselWell enough but at times Jane s obtuseness was grating she is repeatedly enough but at times Jane s obtuseness was grating she is repeatedly 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 ust seemed a little too on the nose and less a tribute to ERB
a repudiationThat said I enjoyed this swords and sky pirates 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 ust 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 "Jane to be terrible an antithesis of John Carter For those who are not particularly fond of classic planetary romances you may still enjoy Swords of Waar as a dissection of the tropes but it works much better read as a kind of fan fiction than as critiue Should Nathan Long write books in this series Well I d probably read them but I think they d uickly become as repetitive as the Barsoom books did 35 star.
