A Mammals Notebook eT Agonistes who will change the flesh and being of his supplicants Apparently there was a planned movie to accompany the concept but it s been shelved This is a very uick read and as you can see in many of the reviews it isssentially a series of character sketches I think most folks know this going into a reading at this point and I think it s important to approach the short piece with its
purposestructure in mind and without the The Berlin Airlift expectation of a complex plottc I ve never njoyed Barker s human characters very in mind and without the xpectation of a complex plot Passing the Police Recruit Assessment Process etc I ve nevernjoyed Barker s human characters very but he is and has always been a master of the monstrous It s a weird sort of fascination that s generated in this novella what horrible thing will be created next It s the same allure of the Cenobites of course and it allows the reader to contemplate what their own twisted form might be if in the same position Additionally the sketch uality of its style for me at least contributed to the sense that it was a work that chronicled legends the bigsurfacey tales passed down within various cultures to Illicit Desires (Illicit, explain the boogeyman Injoyed it and would recommend it if you re looking for something reliably Barker Soul Drinker (Soul Drinkers, esue only marginally gory or maybe I m desensitized by The Scarlet Gospels I don t know and interesting This was very good but too short to leave a lasting impression It does pack a powerful punch Barker somehow manages to make us deeply feel for Tortured Souls is set in the first city of Primordium a city of degradation corruption and violence On the periphery of this story is the ancient being known as Agonistes for two thousand years he has walked thearth making God s art from flesh or so he proclaims A transformer OF HUMAN FLESH IF A SUPPLICANT human flesh if a supplicant to him lost to hopelessness and desperate for revenge If he agrees to the terms set then Agonistes will remake the supplicant through a combination of art magic and pain in the image of their monstrous ideal The story starts with assassin Zarles Krieger whilst on a routine political murder ordered by the Emperor himself he completes his nefarious task and then as he arranges his victim for maximum ffect he is interrupted by the daughter of his victim Lucidiue She implores him to look what is going on around them and Zarles Kreiger is persuaded He seeks Agonistes in the Burned Desert With Dreams Of desert with dreams of Primordium a republic singlehandedly and nding the dynasty of an Emperor Lucidiue s meeting with Agonistes is under slightly different circumstances kidnapped she is killed in view of the flesh transformer that s not one of those metal ones her vengeance will be sated and she is changed almost beyond recognition Both become abominations in the And His Letters Grew Colder eyes of others but it doesn t stop themntering into an unlikely affair that directly results in a shifting of power in Primordium The relationship between the scythe master and his lover is almost a thing of beauty amidst the carnage and depravity brutal and ferocious yet undoubtedly loving Lasting beyond death yet Emasculating Her Husband even though she sought him out Lucidiue was never to cross paths with Agonistes again Tortured Souls The Legend of Primordium is a beautifully vivid and passionately dark tale I recommend the audio and that s probably the most costffective method of Three Short Ballbusting Stories enjoying this story It s not on kindle and I think was only published by Subterranean so it s a costly one if you want the bookAlso posted at.
