Her mother wanted her to marry, her brothers and sisters wanted to be with her all the time, and her father was the nicest person she ever knew. One morning, it all stoped. Now, Victoria is running for her life with Felix. Felix is her ever devoted Guardian who she will have to mary someday; but Victoria hates her life being controlled by someone else. None the less, she has to do what will help her survive. Will doing what she has to be enough to keep her alive? Or will Victoria end up like her ancestors; dead, beheaded, and alone? Victoria wants a regular life, a life she will never know again.
