The General's Bride (Paperback)
BE SURE TO READ BOOK I in THE DISGRACED MARTYR TRILOGY, THE HIEROPHANT'S DAUGHTER
Fight through the surreal dreamscape in this second entry of the darkest sci-fi trilogy to come about in years. Would you take the easy way out?
On her escape from home, General Dominia di Mephitoli has discovered many strange things, but nothing could be stranger than an interdimensional Void populated by an infamous mystic and a fictional saint of death. Nothing, perhaps, except finding the Hierophant there, too--the parent she can't escape, and the cult leader she can't shake, back to threaten her again.
But she should have expected that. With the diamond of her wife's compressed cremains wrenched from her grasp and far too many friends turning out to be enemies in disguise, the Hierophant seems a better father all the time. Only memories of THE GENERAL'S BRIDE can keep her on track to Cairo, where Dominia must meet the Lady heading the infamous Red Market cabal of prostitutes and reclaim the stolen diamond. Stalked at every turn by a vile fiend in her dead wife's form, the General struggles to avoid temptation and cut a clear path to reality. Of course, as she stumbles across a strange Kingdom settled in the event horizon of a black hole, she's forced to wonder if "reality" even exists.
Maybe Saint Valentinian will tell her once he proves he's not a figment of her imagination.
The second in an LGBTQ+ cyberpunk/horror trilogy like there's never been before, THE GENERAL'S BRIDE is a slow burn dream which blurs the line between sci-fi and fantasy into a new form of psychedelic fiction. To discover how the journey of General di Mephitoli reaches its conclusion, read THE LADY'S CHAMPION, coming January 9th, 2020
