Blood Red Road Prologue

By Moira Young


  • We start with some impressionistic free writing. It's not too clear, but we think that our narrator has a twin brother named Lugh. He came out first, and their birthday is "Midwinter Day" (p.1).
  • Our narrator talks about how her dad knows how to read the stars to determine people's fate. He learned how to do it from some traveler.
  • Anyway, the narrator talks about how different she is from her brother. She seems to adore him.
