Book where girl gets pregnant by brother

It's been a while since I've read this book, but I remember a few things, they may not be completely accurate, but if it's wrong, it isn't far off. I chose the subject because I figured that part would catch a lot of people's eye. And some of the things are stupid little things to remember and might not make any sense.


-It centers around two siblings, brother and sister

-The book starts with a man talking to a girl, who is his daughter daughter, and it describes the girl having a shoulder holster with a gun.

-I think it's kind of a gang-like world..with two rival gangs ruling the world, with the father being the leader of one gang. (not completely sure about that one)

-The sister is engaged to a man that might be her father's rival When she goes into his territory he breaks her legs, or does something similar so she can never walk again, and so can never escape from him. He puts her in a house high above the ground and keeps her imprisoned there.

-Her brother goes into his territory, but is attacked by something (I'm thinking piglike...) and his face becomes ruined.

-The girl does some magic like things? And gets pregnant by her brother, though he doesn't know about it. The girl's husband thinks it's his kid.

-There MIGHT be a dagger on the cover. I'm really not sure about that one either.


Most of this might not make anyone but me,. but if anyone can help, I would really appreciate it:smileyhappy:
