For years, Calissa has dreamed of her curse breaking. But when it finally does, she was in no where prepared for what happened next. 

Years have passed since she has escaped the tower and all the weakness she had formed are now stuffed inside a locked cage inside her heart. Her mission now is to stand up against the strong evil and go against the tyrant king that has imprisoned them all in a lowly society. 

As a member of the Masked Bandits, she will do everything in her power to stop the tyrant king from finding the Eternal Dark-- the crystal that grants all evil to the master. With the mind and spirit of an animal, her talents shine above all others. So much, that she has been chosen by the masked man to act upon her desire of protection. 

By the masked man's unfailing trust around her neck and her instincts of honour and loyalty bound around her soul, she is determined to put an end to the kingdom's darkness. However, along the way, her courage will be tested. Along with her heart. The weaknesses that she caged in so long ago, will threaten to spill out. 

Including a dangerous, unbreakable bondage between her and another that even she cannot deny.


A Sleeping Beauty, Robin Hood, and Mulan retelling. With a hint of Rapunzel.

Should probably just be the wheel that stops here - the carriage stops in the next paragraph when the driver gets it under control

So I liked that your prologue put you right there in the action. It set the story and gave you enough information to understand the story without giving too much away. I liked it!

I love the song defying gravity so much that I'm listening to it right now. And I love how you put that as the title, I can already tell that this will be good.

Are you meaning they were especially right when she was about to take on a new challenge? Because here it sounds like she grips the stick in her hand tighter when she takes on a new challenge.  So depending on what you aimed to mean, you may want to switch this around a bit

You mean the horses' manes, right? Most horses' coats are short and shed like a dog's. Most of the time, anyway😁
