Set after the postwar collapse of an interstellar empire, a young orphan girl embarks on a quest for violent retribution. Six years old when her mother was killed, Buttercup endured an unforgiving adolescence on the streets of her home city. She's scraped by ever since, always searching for the man responsible, knowing one day she'll find him.

Such a well-written and powerful opening.  Very nicely constructed and written, and it flows beautifully. Great work :)

Good opening. Intrigued for more. Not sold on name Buttercup yet.

Scary! If she's beaten his face to a pulp why bother with the scalpel. Can't she turn her attention to her own survival or contemplate her upcoming demise? But good stuff. First draft? It's rockin'.
