    This book was on my to read list of fantasy books with LGBT characters Since I m always on the lookout to support OwnVoices, I was delighted to discover that Steven Harper Piziks has a blog where he talks about his boyfriend husband and LGBT rights issues among other things.Iron Axe was an interesting read for me From its tags, I didn t think it was YA, but that s how it read to me YA in a fantasy setting, tackling some very heavy issues such as recovery from sexual abuse, deat...
