War in Heaven, Theodore Beale

Chapter 19: Last Days of the Faithful

So, yeah. They end up in a city and Holli and Jami are first mistaken for witches and then for angels and they they’re sent off with an old man to pray while the men fight. That is pretty much everything that happens in this chapter. If I were Beale’s editor, I’d make him rewrite this nonsense so the girls have a more active role instead of just being convenient game pieces that he gets to move around at whim. I am so tired of their lack of agency and the way that they just aren’t active characters.

And Khasar is a total jackass with this appearing and disappearing bullshit.

Chapter 20: A Moment of Truth

So apparently the only reason Holli and Jami are in this book at all is to be dragged from place to place so things can happen to them.
