Flocked by Ryan Watt

 

Once Upon A Time kingdoms in trouble had to wait for a wandering hero to come along and save the day. But why wait? The Order of Champion now sanctions Guilds to answer the Call when a loved one is kidnapped, a beast attacks, or a curse is placed.

The Guild of the Feathers – Sir Cyril the Cygnus, Torias the Blackwing, Oleg Draketail, Taree the mysterious, and the secretive Satu. You won’t have heard of any of them yet, but soon you will. For who better to help you break free of your curse than those who have been there themselves?


An ongoing series, with new episodes weekly

Flocked takes apart both well known, and lesser known, fairy-tales and adds a new layer to them as the writer, and then the reader, explore deeper levels to those fairy-tales in this fast paced and exciting adventure about people with curses, [more . . .]
