Metamorphosis Chapter 24

| Sep 10, 2018 | 3 Replies

We’re nearing the end of Raquel’s tale of Metamorphosis. Today we publish Chapter 24. Raquel and Guug the ogre have banished their attackers with light and, of all things, a Michael Jackson song. Our arrangement with the author means that this is the last chapter of Metamorphosis that will be presented on TGF. The complete book will be available from Amazon in the early months of 2019. Now read on and find out what happens to Raquel, and find out if Beat It ever stops playing on a loop in the middle of a barren swampland.

Metamorphosis Chapter 23

| Aug 13, 2018 | Reply

Raquel and Mark, seemingly two parts of one person separated after drinking a strange potion, have been transported to another land, possibly another world. There they confront “the Magistrate” who is apparently responsible for their condition. In a house that is a duplicate of their childhood home Raquel meets her “mother” and then her “father.” Then she finds herself in a horrid swamp confronted Guug, an ogre who tries to protect her from wolves. Raquel “becomes the light” vanquishes the wolves, and her friend Lydia appears. Memories return and this world with the horrid swamp and the creatures seem to be a variant of the real world. See what happens in Chapter 23.

In Chapter 7 Mark and Raquel had almost crossed the mysterious lake when they were attacked by strange flying animals of monstrous visage. They fought the beast with the boat’s oars but would have perished had it not been for the intervention of the strange old woman who summoned thunder and lightning to destroy the flying monsters. The witch promised to tell them what was going on and who sent the beasts to attack them. What will happen in this chapter? Only one way to learn and that’s to read Part 8 of Metamorphosis.
