Summary of The Parth Path
In a post-apocalyptic Scotland ruled by women, Solem escapes from mancamp 7, helped by a woman called Texta. He and a ‘clonie’ called Rea hope to reach the ‘Island’. How could he have known that this was all engineered as part of the Parth Path’s parthenogenesis programme to create the Immortal Controller, an invincible leader whose clones will rule forever?
On the Island, he is haunted by memories of an idyllic childhood as ‘Peter’, on a reservation with his friend, wee Moira, before his family was brutally slaughtered by Parth Path wardens during a ‘clearance’. He struggles to rediscover happiness with Rea.
