So like...

This book is really, really good. It is liminal. It is divine. It's quite difficult to describe! There's a strong narrative voice attached to an equally strong narrator character. There's some heavy stuff going on, some very real adolescent girl struggles with sexually aggressive boys she feels she ought to be attracted to, with the sort of fuzzy I-don't-know-who-I-am-but-I-think-who-I-am-sucks identity crises teens so often go through.

It's also got a cold and iron god of Death, and giants, and magic and legends and a brass octopus with a dead lift of several tons.

Read the book!

If you've ever taken a look at either of the Nobilises and thought "this is delectably ingenious, but I'm not sure I can swing getting inside the head of a being kissed by a god, ever dancing between transcendence and humanity. What would that even look like?"

It'd look a hell of a lot like this.

Now, while this isn't explicitly a Nobilis product -- though there's certainly an argument to be made in that direction, and I'm curious what "Chuubo's Marvelous Wish-Granting Engine" will spawn next -- Fable of the Swan is, like its cousins, a mind-bending melange of the mythic and mundane built over a pretty awesome cosmology. You'll laugh (probably), you'll cry (possibly), you'll ponder the nature of storytelling and the topography of the soul (most definitely). Take a look!
