Excerpt from Chapter 1: "My name is Zowanda Rose. My story begins here, when Dominocus come up to me, shove a crumpled up piece of wax paper into my hand, go waddling off like a big fat crow. I must have been eight, maybe nine years old at the time. Dominocus give me three gifts right before she die encapsulate certain mysteries... Everyone of us receive a number of riddles during childhood. Important riddles demand attention later. Now my riddles probably quite different from yours, and yet I suspect the lie may very well be the same."
