The Princess and Curdie by George MacDonald book review

Visits: 161

Curdie is gifted the power of discernment by Irene’s silver haired grandmother living in the garret.

Curdie sets out for the king’s castle.

Curdie finds the King on his deathbed, Irene is desperate. The city is in default. The people in denial. Entire retinue of commie sellouts.

The doctor is slowly killing the king with tainted wine; calling it medicine, but it’s really poison, like the covid vaccine.

Curdie arrives with his loyal daemon. Her crew of disfigured shadow creatures take care of business.

Introducing Lina, faithful daemon, goblin dog of Curdie.

A shadow creature, deformed through her WICKEDNESS in PREVIOUS LIFE.

The people are cursed.

  • Clean town of all unrepentant lizard people.
  • Remove turncoat commies.
  • Perform full accounting.
  • Rally round the family.
  • With a pocket full of shells.

Curdie and the Princess are married.

They rule the city.

They run it very well.

Make full accounting.

Entire city in DEFAULT.

USA Covid Extortion Scam.
