Overview

More than three thousand five hundred years old Zsallia Marieko is a solitary immortal, the only one of her kind and very much the pagan barbarian at heart, yet tempered by her centuries lived during the emergence of modern Western civilization. She shares her life story with a skeptical author when she finds herself forced to confront what it means to cease living outside society and join the world around her, to take up the benefits and responsibilities of living openly and asking people to simply accept who and what she is. Touching only the first 1500 years of her life the tale she reveals is by turns pathetic, endearing, unnerving and horrifying as the reader witnesses her climb from nameless slave to terrifying goddess, then her plunge into murderous insanity until she emerges humbled, remade and utterly alone.
