The Prophet is dead. Long live the Prophetess.
This is the 11th episode of The Fisher of Bones, a 12-episode serial from Serial Box Publishing in partnership with Fireside Fiction. It is written by Sarah Gailey.
Ever since he survived the lightning strike, Marc’s faith in the Gods and their promises has only grown. As Fisher weighs the coming end of their journey, she reaches a terrible conclusion about what that faith may have driven him to do.
The Prophet is dead. The eyes of the Gods have turned to his daughter. But she isn’t ready. Not for the whispers in her ear, for the divinations… for the blood. Her people’s history and their future, carved by ancients into the bones of long dead behemoths, are now her burden. Only she can read them, interpret the instructions, and guide them to the Promised Land. Their journey is almost at an end, but now, without the Prophet, she must find a way to guide them to the place they will call Home. Through blood and through sand, against the will of her own flock, against the horrors that haunt the darkness, only she can bring her people Home. The Prophet is dead. Long live the Prophetess.
