Ugh, the gay sex...
I haven't finished this series yet, I've just started book 3, but I don't see how this series is some of the "blackest grimdark" I've ever read, nor do I see where all this blood supposedly spurting from the pages is coming from.
Reading the in-depth sexual exploits of the gay protagonist is definitely something different, though overall darker fantasy is very common these days, and so far I'm finding that this is really not that bloody at all, and "blackest grimdark" is hardly fitting.
After reading the description in the list I was expecting a romp through hell with guts and viscera everywhere, instead I'm reminded more of Joe Abercrombie's First Law series when it comes to any darkness in the protagonist, there's no more blood here so far than that series or any of the military fantasy ones.
I am really quite enjoying this series, but based on this site's description I was expecting something else entirely.
God damn faggots
