Poisoned apples, wicked curses, red cloaks and kickass women... Fractured Folktales has them all. Including:
VEIL OF CLOUDS
A dark fable about tells of Mara, the princess of a conquered kingdom, who's horrified to learn that the man who killed her father plans to marry her to cement his claim. In desperation, she asks her faery godmother, Pippa, for help to kill him and set her free. But a faery godmother’s primary duty is to grant her charge’s wishes, not conspire to murder!
So Pippa looks for an alternative solution, one her spoilt, wayward princess is really going to dislike.
