    PDF Naomi Kritzer Á PDF Fires of the Faithful eBook Ô Fires of Kindle - Á alternate universe.co fires book, faithful mobile, Fires of epub, Fires of the Faithful eBookI picked up this book mainly for two reasons 1 The focus on music as magic and alternate religions sounded intriguingReligion is often only an accessory part of Fantasy world building But this author clearly shows her hand as a student of theology since the New and the Old religions feel like living religions should They are not just dogmas; not a set of rules related in a couple of abstract fairy tales These religions have symbols hymns rituals and they came from somewhere It is made clear that the New religion integrated part of the Old Way as happens with religions in real life Meanwhile the New Way as it is practised is clearly a bastardized form of the actual Old Religion which in turn is than heavily implied to be Catholicism but with a twist that once again reflects the religion that has taken over eg giving the new Old Way a female deity as wellA major positive effect of this is of course t

    PDF Naomi Kritzer Á PDF Fires of the Faithful eBook Ô Fires of Kindle - Á alternate universe.co fires book, faithful mobile, Fires of epub, Fires of the Faithful eBookThis book suffers from a bad case of the almostsThe first problem is the world It is clearly referencing our world but it's problematic The setting is a pseudo Medieval Italy with names like Giovanni and Vesuvian and Lucia thrown around where the men are addressed as Signore Of the two religions battling it out one is pseudo Catholicism a pretty primitive Catholicism There's God and she's a female not a male there's God's Light instead of the Holy Spirit and God's Son Gesu instead of Jesu The language of the Old Ways sounds a lot like Hebrew to my uneducated ear BUT her notItaly is not uite different enough to justify that complete lack of Rome as a cultural center And her notCatholicism has at its heart a very different passion story of death and resurrection And then there's the magic which is tossed in without

    PDF Naomi Kritzer Á PDF Fires of the Faithful eBook Ô Fires of Kindle - Á alternate universe.co fires book, faithful mobile, Fires of epub, Fires of the Faithful eBookOkay I was recced this book based on the fact it had a lesbian protagonist It was during the mess with where books with GLBT themes weren't showing up on searches I did read the author's short stories beforehand as a bit of a warning and was ambivalent interesting in trying them but prepared to send it off to PaperbackSwap if I didn't like them One of the problems with this book is that I went in thinking it was what I consider an otherwordly fantasy when it was of a very stretched alt history The reason I say this is because of the religious elements Hundreds of years before the series began Italy still made up of a number of kingdoms like historical Italy was a new religion arose based on the magical ability to call fire and worshiping a pair of gods the Lord and the Lady though the Lord isn't mentioned much and supplanting Christianity called 'the Old Way' in the book Unsurprisingly one still gets the Inuisition de facto rule o
