Science Fiction and Fantasy Saturday No. 28 (#sffsat) – Warlock’s Pawn – #FantasyRomance

Full-time language training made my brain all mushy, so I forgot to sign up last week.

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, we learned a bit more about the Warlock-Fey history.

“What do you ask? What is the payment you demand for saving the life of the Ruler of Helicon?” he questioned as he bent his head to her proffered wrist and brushed his lips against her palm.

“I ask that you be merciful,” she said as he drew in her life force, and pure white magic seeped through his body to undo all that Anora’s poison had wrought. With the bond came an understanding of words that need not be spoken, of a request made by a being who knew too well how this war would end.

It’s a bit short this time since I wanted to end on a cliffhanger.

  1. Sort of implies that his mercy is the only hope for her side.

  2. I like how the communication is happening on two levels and that she’s sacrificing something of her own and asking only for leniency – always an entertaining read.

  3. I have so got to get this book. These teasing little snippets are frustrating!! 🙂 Excellent!

  4. I like how you subtly highlight the power she has in saving his life. I think she’ll be getting more than mercy later on.

  5. I love the layers you have here. Past, present, and future are all colliding and happening at the same time. I loved this scene. I really enjoyed the book.
