Content Warnings

It’s up to you, as a reader, to choose which stories you wish to consume, whether they be light-hearted and frivolous or something tackling darker themes. Sand Dancer does lean towards the darker side of fantasy as it explores oppression and a female character choosing to masquerade as a man in order to achieve her goals. I appreciate that not everyone wants to read these types of stories.

With that in mind, here are some warnings for the types of content/scenes you can expect from Sand Dancer:

  • Violence – Sword Fighting, Weapons, Burnings, Gore, Death
  • Bodies/Corpses/Bones/Skulls
  • Physical Abuse/Emotional Abuse/Bullying/Death Threats
  • Loss of a Loved One/Death of a Parent
  • Blood/Blood Rituals/Blood Magic/Ritualistic Self-Harm
  • Poisoning and Vomit
  • Snakes – Referenced Once or Twice
  • Oppression/Classism – References to Slavery/Imprisonment/Forced Captivity/Genocide
  • Sexism/Misogyny
  • Cross Dressing – Girl Disguised as Boy Trope (Not Used for Humour – But the Main Character is Cis Female)
  • Nudity and Menstruation (No Sexual Content/No Sexual Assault)
  • References to Arranged Marriage
  • Some Swearing/Some Sexual Slurs
  • Some Scenes Involving Drugs/Alcohol/Drinking (Recreational)
  • Some LGBT Representation – More in Subsequent Books
