Those of you who’ve read The Hundred Thousand Kingdoms (spoilers) —
I’ve seen a few reviews complain that it’s strange for an immortal god like Nahadoth to love a 19-year-old mortal girl. OK, makes sense; he’s incomprehensibly ancient and it’s hard enough to get May/December romances to work, let alone half-a-second/December. But I haven’t yet seen a single review complain that it’s strange for Sieh — also incomprehensibly ancient, however young he looks and pretends to be — to love a 19-year-old mortal girl.
Why do you think this is?
(Not trying to ask any leading questions here; I’m just honestly puzzled by the disparity.)
