Cinder Spire - Kid friendly?
« on: February 01, 2019, 03:29:21 PM »
Hi everyone,

I read Cinder Spire several years ago and I'm considering allowing my 12 year old son read it.  Can anyone think of any scenes in the book that might be in appropriate for a pre-teen?

Thanks!

Hello and welcome to the forums. Sorry for the late reply.
My personal opinion is that it's appropriate for a kid. Nothing but some scenes of fighting, and even they are not extreme. I hope he enjoys it.

فتتبعت السواقي وتسلقت الصخور
هل تحممت بعطره وتنشفت بنور
وشربت الفجر خمراً من كؤوس من أثير

There is mention of Rape, It doesn't happen but something along the lines of "I'll be murdered and raped most likely" and the Auroran Seargent says something like " I don't allow rapists in my troop, I'd kill you quick". Other than that I can't think of anything else of concern.

Besides the rape comment mentioned by Con there is another scene where Gwen is thinking about Benedict's love life (or lack thereof) and thinks about how there has been interest from some highborn ladies. It is implied that some ladies would consider sex with a warriorborn to be an adventure, but not out right stated. Overall, pretty tame. As long as there is no fear of spiders I think a 12 year old would be fine.

There are some glazed-over descriptions of what the Silkweavers do to people that may upset a sensitive kid. But I don't think it'd be anything more or less appropriate than, say, an episode of CSI ten years ago when it was good.
