Hanging in There By MissBookNut Updated Aug 20, 2016

Religion rules Constantine's world...and she has been condemned as the Spawn of the Devil. She is a Champion, a human being blessed with superhuman abilities by the deities of her world. However, her patron happens to be the Lord of War and Strategy - and women were never supposed to be Champions of War.

In order to survive in a world that would rip her apart, she disguises as a boy, training to fulfil her supposed destiny. But fate has other things in store for her. An ancient evil is rising - and only Constantine may have the power needed to fight it.

Along with a brash warrior and a too-perceptive scholar, Constantine begins to unravel secrets of a prophecy foretelling the end of the world. Now, she must learn how to fight evil with nothing but a magical knife as well as powers she knows next-to-nothing of. 

The real problem though? She may have been the one to call the great evil in the first place.

Thats one way to start a story and really grab a reader's attention.

And with on this cheerful note, let us start this story! Ahoy! (I don't even know what I'm saying)

This made me think of how in India, widows would throw themselves onto their late husbands' funeral pyres rather than live the rest of their lives as outcasts.

This makes me think Shireen Baratheon...anyone else see that scene? ;-;
I am not mad at the mom I am mad at the spectators who just stand there making that poor woman sacrifice her only baby.
