The ransom of Dond

This is the haunting story of Darra - who, as the 13th child to be born to her mother, is destined to be sacrificed to Dond, the dark god of the underworld. On the day she turns 13 she'll be rowed out to sea, where she will leap overboard with a rock tied to her ankle. She can't think of a worse birthday present
