The Accused Dead
“The Handmaiden’s Tale Meets The Walking Dead”
Though I’ve been exonerated through the Necromancer Trial, there are those who are convinced that I am a devil-woman who should be exiled, or worse, killed.
I’m trapped by the Laws of the Lost Texts. I can’t simply buy a ticket to the train and leave. I have to endure the Bridal Auction and hope my newfound friend, Quade, will be able to purchase my hand in marriage. If he fails his bid, I will be married off to one of the Crats. I’d rather be declared Unclaimed and condemned to a life of servitude to the community.
All the while, the secret necromancer lurks in the shadows threatening to upturn my life and expose my true nature.
To finally have control over my own life, I may have to take the ultimate risk and escape over the wall into the Deadlands.
