Third in the Wraeththu Chronicles trilogy, ‘The Fulfilments of Fate and Desire’ concludes the first saga of the androgynous race that has become the dominant race on earth.
Calanthe, erstwhile companion of Pellaz, (the har who has now become leader of all Wraeththu), is on the run. He flees from his past and his mistakes, haunted by spectres of the terrible things he has done. In despair, he takes work in a musenda, a 'house of ill repute' in the disreputable town of Fallsend. Here, he meets Panthera, a strange and beautiful har, held in unspeakable slavery, from which Cal vows to liberate him.
Once free of Fallsend, Cal and Panthera undertake a mythic journey through the land of Jaddayoth, from the peaks of Shappa to the underground city of Sahen. With ghosts at his heels and phantoms beckoning to him from the future, Cal must face his past, in order to fulfil his destiny and discover whether he and Pellaz can ever be reunited.
