Book Review: The World Reaper Odyssey – Luke Tarzian

Hello!

Today I am delighted to be reviewing the novelette ‘The World Reaper Odyssey’ which is part of Luke Tarzian’s omnibus edition of the Adjacent Monsters series which came out yesterday (digital) and will be out in physical copies in a couple of days. There are no words to describe how excited I was when this omnibus edition with a bonus novelette was announced, and I grabbed the digital copy straight away and I will getting the physical once it’s released (I mean just look at that cover, who wouldn’t – plus I need a matching set!).

You can check out my reviews for the other books in this omnibus edition here:

Book Summary:

Both books in the Adjacent Monsters duology, plus a bonus novelette, compiled in a digital boxset and print omnibus.

THE WORLD MAKER PARABLE

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.


THE WORLD BREAKER REQUIEM

Prince of Woe…

Avaria Norrith is the adopted heir to the Ariathan throne. But that means little to a man who, for the better part of fifteen years, has sought and failed to earn his mother’s love. Fueled by pride and envy, Avaria seeks the means to prove himself and cast away his mental chains. When he’s tasked with the recreation of The Raven’s Rage he sees his chance, for with the infamous blade he can rewrite history and start anew.

Daughter of the Mountain…

Erath has not felt sunlight for a century. Not since Ariath condemned her people to a life of darkness with their misuse of The Raven’s Rage. But when an old friend comes seeking the remnants of the ancient sword, Erath cannot contain her curiosity and resolves to lend her aid. Is it true-can history be revised? Can her people be reclaimed?

Toll the Hounds…

They are hungry-and they are here.
