Feather - Free PDF Excerpt

Feather, by David Rix



I have just launched a free PDF here on Goodreads of the complete first novella in my collection Feather - entitled Yellow Eyes. This tells the story of a young Feather gworing up in the wilds in the shadow of an old nuclear powerstation with her borderline crazy father and it sets the scene for most of the other works. So now there is nothing to stop you meeting her for yourself!
