Author's Note:


To the upper crust of England's social hierarchy the poor were nothing but the steps upon which they climbed to reach the pedestals of power. Feather Firestone had been born into this society, oblivious to the reality of the harsh London streets; that is until she was sold to the Spider that made its home amongst its dark alleys. Abandoned by her own father as payment for an outstanding debt, Feather must learn to survive in the city's shady red-light district of Soho. Amongst the dirty, terrifying streets she finds an unlikely companion who shares her dreams of freedom and love. Then Feather soon finds herself dangerously close to the heart of one of the most forbidding mysteries in London history. As she struggles to find answers, Feather finally learns the truth about the fine line between "Good and Evil."

Author's Note:

My dear Readers,

Here are a few things to know before you begin reading Feathers of Gold: Book I: The London Fa├žade. The year in which the story takes place is 1886 in London, England which is the same year in which the original novella The Strange Case of Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde was written by Robert Louis Stevenson. I would like to apologize to any historical fanatics if I make any mistakes in the accuracy of events, people, places, clothing, etc. during the duration of this tale. I am a fan of European and World History myself but being human I make mistakes. On that note I would also like to add that I do not appreciate flames or any rude comments directed towards myself or other reviewers, so please do NOT make any. However, feel free to leave any constructive criticism, kind comments, or questions. I love hearing from you and I hope that you enjoy my story. After all, I only write and present my work but it is up to you, my readers, to decide whether or not it is worthy of being read. Finally, in order to avoid getting sued and posting this at the beginning of every chapter:

DISCLAIMER: I DO NOT OWN The Strange Case of Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde OR Jekyll and Hyde: The Musical.

HOWEVER: I DO OWN Feather Firestone, the Firestone Family, Jonathan Hurst, and the members of Organization XVI.

Now with all of that out of the way, I leave you to enjoy the journey of Feather Firestone. Thank you for your attention and don't forget to leave a review! ()
