A spectacular read! Check it out-A magical spell that gives women the power to control their fertility, men who aren’t ready to give up their power and did I mention magic!!!!! This book took me longer to read due to it being 560 but it was very enjoyable.

Thank you @netgalley for my Arc!

Not the worst thing I've read, but can't say it's part of my favourite list. I found it interesting, but it lacked some things to make it a really great series. Not going into it, no point.
I will, however, read book 2 and if that one isn't a let down then I will continue reading the series.
I love the Feminist element of this novel.
The ending I felt was a bit rushed, not quite sure how the ending worked the way it did, but maybe it would be explained in the next book.

My review will be combined with a review of Book 2, Queen of the Unwanted.

This is like if Sheri Tepper wrote fantasy instead of sci-fi, and without any real plot twists. Solid, enjoyable, and a novel magic system.

OMG.

OMG.

I'm not big into epic fantasy. This takes everything I don't like about them and shows exactly how it should be done.

THAT ENDING!

I'm absolutely blown away and can't wait for the next one.

The Women’s War was one of the most intriguing epics fantasies I’ve read. There were a few things I’d like to have seen fleshed out a little more but it was still a heck of a story to read. I’ll be thinking on the questions and implications of this story long after I shelve it. Well done.

Right now I am simply in shock with how this book ended. I have become fully invested in these characters and I am eager to learn what happens next.
