A Squalor of Chickens

33 pages26 minutes


Once a warrior of the Seelie Court, Rose now exists as a changeling in a twisted human body devoid of magic. Only on midwinter day can she taste magic again, in the form of a single spell, one that allows her to reconnect the ice-cold Earth with the sun’s life-giving warmth. Her one power is the single most important one--ushering in Spring.

When offered the chance at a life, or betrayal, will she abandon her duty?
