“Her sister stolen. Her grandfather murdered. Her home burned to the ground. At just 16, Megan’s life is destroyed. Now she wants revenge.”
NO MAJOR SPOILERS
Megan is sixteen, pregnant and the father has done one! Her parents are long dead and her grandfather (with whom she and her twin sister Gwyneth live) is not going to be happy. So when a message from her baby’s father, Wade is delivered, asking her to meet him in secret, late one night, of course she goes, they might reconcile, marry even and there will be no scandal.
Unfortunately he’s uninterested in becoming a father and he tells her she should leave their village, run away and disappear which of course she’s not about to do. Their discussion is brought to an abrupt halt when sounds of screams are heard from the village and Wade goes to investigate, his inquiries are met with a swift decapitation and the soldiers come looking for Megan.
