About the Book
Author: Mehreen Ahmed
Genre: Science Fiction/Fantasy
Number of Pages: 109
Synopsis: Embedded in dream allegory, Moirae conveys human predicament taken from a fantasy land called the Lost Winds. Juxtaposed with the narrator's intermittent views, imaginary events are captured and presented allegorically in the main character's lucid dreams. These dramas appear in knitting of pink honeycomb patterns. As the knitting continues, each of these bee-hives self-organizes purportedly into a new word.
The story is written in a 'stream of consciousness' style which explores the inner thoughts of a young man who has shamed his family and fled to save his own life. The bold imagery and vivid details combine to create a passionate story that easily captivates.
I have read several of Mehreen Ahmed's works and thoroughly enjoyed Moirae.
I recommend picking up a copy. Available on Amazon.
