We all have secrets that devastate the wastelands of our past. The difference is, Meruself's secret destroyed her world. Now all she has left are the haunting memories of the home she left behind and the unbearable stain of her betrayal. In self-imposed exile she lives at the edge of the mysterious Hella Wood in Nornfall, avoiding contact with the outside world and hiding from a terrifying beast that prowls the night relentlessly. When the chance to save a life presents itself, Meruself is compelled to take it, risking the wrath of the gods. She will learn that a terrible price must be paid in the present for mistakes made in the past, and her perilous choice will bring her closer to the beast than ever before. © 2016 All rights reserved.
