It happened when she was a teenager in New Zealand. The story was told in the film "Heavenly Creatures" with Kate Winslet playing Perry whose real name is Juliet Hulme.

Pendragon's Banner by Helen Hollick
The Winter King by Bernard Cornwell
Into battle we ride with Gods by our side
We are strong and not afraid to die
We have an urge to kill and our lust for blood has to be fulfilled
WE´LL FIGHT TILL THE END! And send our enemies straight to Hell!

The other day I bought The Reindeer Hunters by Joan Wolf trusting fantasticfiction order for the series but now I've realized they are wrong :confused: so I've bought Daughter of the Red Deer (I bet they are loosely related like her Dark Ages series where there was a time frame but you could read in any order without a big problem but still...)
