Serie: Deviation (#4)
Publisher: Malcohn Enterprises
Destiny Farm has fallen. Promontory's people must hunt down the escaped "Farm Yata" or starve, but they must also integrate with the Skedge Yata or their industries will fail. Their very independence relies on dangerous compromises.
Enter Jirado, a Skedge Yata and valued employee of the now-destroyed Destiny factory. Her kin, captured by the Farm before its fall, might yet be alive. But they are at risk unless she can destroy Promontory's hunters. The drive toward integration gives her an opening she cannot resist, and her first target is TripStone.
The other end of the region begins to crack under its own tensions. Crossroads and Basc struggle to maintain peace through controlled predation. Ghost's quest to end Masari dependence on Yata flesh leads to new avenues of cannibalism, while specially-trained Yata soldiers hunt Masari down in the far woods. But their rules of engagement begin to crumble, and a rogue element brings the valley to the brink of all-out war.
About the Deviations Series:
Long ago the Masari and the Yata hunted together in peace, until the species they drove to extinction included those possessing nutrients necessary to Masari survival. The Yata then became the only source of those nutrients. Deviations tells how these peoples cope with the reality of being sentient creatures forced to play the roles of predator and prey, and how several of them try to thwart long-established conventions in the hope of overcoming their biological imperative. In Deviations love triumphs in the midst of death. The series focuses on the social, ethical, and spiritual dilemmas surrounding both the literal cannibalism of the societies involved and the many ways in which their different communities feed off each other.
