Science Fiction and Fantasy Saturday No. 26 (#sffsat) – Warlock’s Pawn – #FantasyRomance

This snippet is from Warlock’s Pawn and continues from the last one (click on the SFFSat tag at the bottom of the post to read past snippets). Warlock’s Pawn is a fantasy romance inspired by The Arabian Nights. It is available on  LSBooksAmazonBarnes & NobleARe, Kobo, and a few other places.

In the previous post, Duncan runs out of magic, and Alia offers him a way out.

“If you allow me to drain your life force, the act will forever tie your mind to mine.”

Her eyes were those of one who had often faced a destiny not of her choosing. “The link goes both ways. Accept what neither of us can change. You cannot wait for the sun to rise, for the princess will not be satisfied without your body. Soldiers will arrive at dawn, and the ravine takes days to traverse. Just promise you will leave me safe inside the temple’s walls. I will be cared for while you spend the next half decade coating the sands in blood.”

  1. I had to break down and get the book. Another wonderful tale!

  2. “Coating the sands in blood”… awesome. 🙂

  3. She must really have it in for her sister.

  4. Still loving the interaction between these two, comes with a lot of baggage, which always makes for a good story.

  5. I hate that it’s obvious this isn’t the first time she’s agreed to do something she felt she really had no choice in. That means she’s certainly seen it too many times. And here’s one more person needing her sacrifice. She’s very altruistic.

  6. This definitely gets more interesting. Guess I should tell you I’ve bought a copy too…
