Reward will come in the next life with the benevolence of the Mayker.
New accepts everything - that is, until the mysterious Devlin arrives.
Suddenly, Newt starts to look at Bearmouth with a fresh perspective, questioning the system, and setting in motion a chain of events that could destroy their entire world.
