Tribulation Sarahdaughter figured if it was a goddess issuing orders, and granting her the super-human strength to carry out those orders, then righteousness was on her side. She figured wrong.
Raised as a warrior in the all-female settlement of New Murias, 16-year-old “Trib” couldn’t wait to pass the test she trained for her whole life, and receive the gift of The Rage. With it, she would have the strength to punish the men who oppressed her people and murdered her family—the Puritanics.
Unfortunately, on her first mission, a deadly ambush strands her in a marsh with only one hope for survival, a young Native boy named Peyewik. Of course, Trib doesn't know that Peyewick's ability to speak with the spirits caused his own people to fear and isolate him. When Peyewik nurses Trib back to health and then asks for her help, she feels obliged to grant it. Inexperienced in these matters, Trib does not realize that allying herself with a Native puts her in conflict with both the Puritanics, and the warrior-women who raised her.
Alienated from both of their peoples and on the run from the vicious Puritanics, Trib and Peyewik uncover lies and abuses of power that threaten to destroy the New World. If they can survive the hunt for their lives, maybe they can set things anew.
