We've read a lot of fantasy books on this show where the main plot element was torture. We're not fans. But sponsor Sam thought he could show us that torture fantasy can be good. Sorry, Sam, no refunds.
The Chosen takes place in the bronze age in an alternate universe with some dinosaurs but not enough. There's a brutal caste system and lots of people are blinded or maimed for no reason, all while trying to create a brokered convention in the election of a god/emperor. We really didn't like it.
