In a way, I'm relieved to see that others have a hard time summing up this story, because believe me, writing the summary for submission was a real struggle. When people ask me what it's about, I mumble something about urban deities, BDSM, and overcoming an abusive relationship, but that's hardly the Hollywood style two-sentence pitch publishers seem to want now. I'm just lucky that Torquere Press took a chance on it.
Why don't I ever write a nice, simple story? *whimpers* Oh that's right - because I can't.
