Genre: Sci-Fi/Fantasy Novella
The Blurb: Kato Vorsok is a man deserted by his god. A failed hero living in exile, he wants nothing to do with his old life.
Until the night he encounters a wounded mourning cloak—a demon that can walk through walls, dissolve into mist, and spear a man’s heart with a fingernail.
She calls him by name. She knows his past. She needs his help.
And she is his key to redemption.
My Review: Mourning Cloak is a very poetically written story. I fell in love with Rabia Gale's writing style right away. This story was not very long but, it packed a big punch. It was a very emotional moving piece of literature that left me wanting for nothing. Mourning Cloak was a very fulfilling story with characters that moved you from one realm to another without you even realizing you had left. This is one novella that I am sure not to forget anytime soon. This is a very well thought out piece that lifts your soul if only briefly it is still lifted.
About the Author: Rabia Gale
I break fairy tales and fuse fantasy and science fiction. I love to write about flawed heroes who never give up, transformation and redemption, and things from outer space. In my spare time I read, doodle, eat chocolate, avoid housework, and homeschool my three children.
A native of Pakistan, I grew up in hot, humid Karachi. I then spent almost a decade in Northern New England where I learned to love fall, tolerate snow, and be snobbish about maple syrup and sweet corn. I now live in Northern Virginia.
