A Crown of Bones |✔|
There is a legend of forbidden fruit. Of those who venture within the darkness and take such a bite from it, daring to be stolen by the keeper of death himself.
Korin is different. She wants it.
In her twisted world, women are taken at their first bleeding and undergo a 'Conversion.'
Some come back the same, happy that the monster within their soul has been removed.
Others never come back at all.
And then some- just a few. Only halfway come back. Their mind broken and poorly glued together from the darkness they have seen. From the part of their soul that died.
After undergoing her Conversion, Korin falls under this description.
Soon enough however, her beauty is noticed, and she is offered up to the Wolf King as a bride.
But Korin wants more.
She has tasted the power she once had before they ripped it from her soul.
And she's willing to eat the fruit for it.
