The Vengeful is the third book in Kilian Colin's The Marshman Series. Set in the Marshlands of Iraq, this series provides a thought-provoking glimpse into the life of an indigenous Sumerian community in Mesopotamia, known as the Ahwari Marsh Arabs. The Vengeful tells one of Enkidu’s compelling life stories. Reincarnated in the city of Mosul in northern Iraq during its occupation by ISIS, Enkidu becomes entangled in a same-sex love story with Amjad, an ISIS fighter kidnapped from Aleppo and forced into their ranks. Enkidu evolves from an antihero to a leader of the Queers for Liberation movement within ISIS-controlled territory, weaving a tale rich in pride, love, and vengeance.
