Lucy Sorrenson is the only grown-up at her place, in her opinion. Her father acts like a teenage muso. Her grandad’s grasp on reality is slipping away and she’s sick of the responsibility of looking after them.
She wants to be in the school play, go to the cast parties, have fun with her friends. But on opening night she is called to the stage door. No one would believe the role she now has to play.
She has been chosen to save the world.
“My name is Charity, Sister Charity. We are members of a religious family and we’ve been observing you for months, my child. You are identical to the young woman in the Master’s visions. You have passed all the tests and are known to us as The Maiden, the chosen vessel for the seed of our Master.”
“The…the seed of the WHAT?”
