Bardo the Celestial
New Adult/Dark Fantasy
Status: First Drafting for NaNoWriMo 2017
Tara is a Celestial – a priestess who travels into the dreams of the dying to help them reach liberation from the cycle of rebirth. She is destined to become the spiritual leader of her religion once she is able to help a soul reach liberation without the help of her mentor. When she is assigned to a simple farmer, she travels into his dying dream to find he is not the man he claimed to be – he used to be a soldier under the former patriarchy, trained to hunt and kill Celestials. He pulls her into his nightmare, trapping her inside. She has a sacred duty to lead him to liberation, but if she doesn’t escape before his body dies, she dies with him.
