The Sorcerer’s Concubine
by Jaclyn Dolamore
Eighteen years ago, Velsa was born of wood, cloth, and a substantial dose of magic. She is a Fanarlem, a beautiful artificial girl, and now the dreaded day for which she was made has finally come–she is sold to serve as a man’s concubine. Grau Thanneau, her new master, is a handsome young sorcerer who expects to own a spectacular piece of spellwork–he doesn’t realize that everything he has been told about Fanarlem is a lie. Velsa is not a dull-witted doll, but an intelligent and luminous soul who captivates his heart. Neither of them expected to fall in love, in a land where the law will never recognize her as his equal…
When Grau brings Velsa with him as he serves in the border patrol, they will encounter very odd magic sent from the High Sorcerer’s palace–or is it magic at all? War is brewing, and with it, the winds of change. Velsa has powers of her own, powers no Fanarlem girl should have, but when the enemy attacks, she might be the only one who can stand against them.
