The first of four short ‘origins’ stories by Christopher Percy focusing on key characters from the dark fantasy novel Dark of Winter. This short story follows the birth of Reina, which happens seven years before the events of that book.
Herre, an expectant mother, is frightened she will lose her baby as her waters have not broken and instead she is haemorrhaging excessively. Her husband Stoneman rushes from their hut to fetch White, Sumner’s village elder but will they return in time to assist or will a worse fate call at her door?
