For those who have read the first half of “The Immortal Lover” this is the second half. The editor picked this one for next year.
The Immortal Lover: Worlds Unknown.
This book deals with Azazel’s celestial traveling from worlds to worlds in search of what he believes he want.
There’s a section in this book where Azazel visited a fallen world where all the females have long been removed. It’s a world of Immortals but their Mother Queen, and she and the king’s daughters have all been removed after the king creed that everything and all things must be masculine. All art, literature, writing, poetry, the whole she-bang must be masculine. Anything feminine was an offense.
Well, one fateful day they find themselves deprived of their female progenitor and other female relatives. I won’t tell you where they were placed.
Years later, this world is divided and at war with itself because some, (many) of the sons didn’t wish to live in a world totally populated by millions of generations of male. The last group of males were born million of years ago before their mother queen, sisters and daughters were taken so dissent group allured wives from other immortal worlds and built towns and cities. Angering their father. Their brothers wish to declare war against them saying that females were the source of their downfall. Sounds familiar?
