I feel as if I'm watching some old, beloved trash cinema when I read this book. Sometimes it is 70s porn goofiness like Alice In Wonderland or Grafenberg Spot; other times it's the practical effects-laden, sword-n-sandals magic of Ice Pirates, Battle Beyond The Stars or Conan The Barbarian. The big qualifier is that this is from the perspective of a young heroine, and it delves pretty deeply into her peculiar, self-absorbed innocence.
In a world were women are bartered and education is replaced with magic, Vesper stands out as a strong and confident protagonist that fights against the currents of her family's conservative traditions. With the the threat of marrying a man she despises, Vesper goes on a mad trek to the king's court to find the owner of this strange, anthropomorphic penis.
On her way, she encounters a plague of severed body parts and dark forces at work.
