Today I’m revisiting and reviewing The World Maker Parable by Luke Tarzian, the first book in the Adjacent Monsters series and a prequel novella to his fantastic novel Vultures (Review). With The World Breaker Requiem on the horizon – due for release on the 21st of December for anyone looking for a lovely, dark Christmas present for themselves – I wanted to return to the first book, and once again I found myself loving it even more on the reread.
Guilt will always call you back…
Rhona is a faithful servant of the country Jémoon and a woman in love. Everything changes when her beloved sets the ravenous Vulture goddess loose upon the land. Forced to execute the woman she loves for committing treason, Rhona discovers a profound correlation between morality and truth. A connection that might save her people or annihilate them all.
You are a lie…
Varésh Lúm-talé is many things, most of all a genocidal liar. A falsity searching for the Phoenix goddess whom he believes can help him rectify his atrocities. Such an undertaking is an arduous one for a man with missing memories and a conscience set on rending him from inside out. A man whose journey leads to Hang-Dead Forest and a meeting with a Vulture goddess who is not entirely as she seems.
