Riassunto: A gothic tapestry of fantasy and horror, Fel Kian's riveting first novel is a richly decadent tale that pushes the boundaries of identity and eroticism. E ccentric characters and wild landscapes abound in this story made up of three interweaving tales. An uncanny boy searches across worlds for his faerie mother; Severina, a young Russian woman, a lost soul in a lost city, seeks love and meaning; and the terrifying Lylithe, who hunts Angels with the stained sickle of a forgotten God.
Rife with mythological themes, the story begins when Peter's mother Saraquinn disappears on the eve of his tenth birthday. His world is shattered, until one night when a phantom lures him into the woods and another world. Here the creatures of legends and myth exist, and there is something familiar about it all, something that stirs his dormant faerie blood. Fate, like Lylithe, is seductively sensual and infinitely cruel.
Across the ocean a young goth, Severina, is looking for a way to escape her wayward, city life. Clubbing and promiscuity aren't cutting it anymore, and things are starting to happen -- weird things. Everyone around her is starting to die, and a haphazard entanglement with a water spirit forces her to enter a surreal world of exiled dwarves, Ash Mares, androgynous seers, beguiling faerie creatures, and a very real and very monstrous Ammit. But this savage and exotic world is changing, and Severina has a bigger role to play in the events to come than she could ever imagine...
Paying homage to dark fantasy masters like Tanith Lee, Clive Barker, and H. Rider Haggard, Kian's literary touch strikes just the right balance between gruesome horror and ethereal fantasy. Not for the faint of heart, his expansive style leads the reader to an astonishing climax. Lyrically written and vividly portrayed, Indigo Eyes is a highly promising debut!
Dal retro di copertina:
The Empress Lylithe, with the aid of a succubus and incubus and the holy sickle of Kronos, is hunting seven of the fallen - angels who donned incarnate form and hid in the human world.
The world where Saraquinn Morrigan chose to live, rejecting her dark past and faerie ancestry, in order to create a normal future for herself and her son Peter.
The world where a fiery, outlandish, twentyish urbanite Adriana Malkov-Severina to her friends-living in downtown Ligeia, must see her dying father one last time.
A world they are all forced to leave behind, each tale a thread, weaving wonderment and horror...
Peter is beguiled across a faerie portal by a winged woman bearing a keen resemblance to his mother Saraquinn, who vanished six years prior, on the eve of his tenth birthday, without trace or explanation... Severina, in mourning, discovers a horizon beyond the pale, where love is to be found enslaved within a glass jar...
Their lot: a dangerously playful Undine, outcast dwarves, Ash Mares, androgynous seers and a monstrous Ammit. Ultimately they must face Lylithe, and learn that the veil between worlds is as fragile as gossamer, as brittle as the divide between sex and gender, love and hate, flesh and blood...
