SLAVE: A Dark(ish) Faerie Tale

Candace Blevins
In Faerie, slaves are property with no rights. Some owners are kinder than others, and everyone assumes the unluckiest slaves are the ones owned by The Winter Queen. Sometimes, the reality is so much worse than anyone can possibly imagine. Occasionally it’s better, but slaves don’t dare hope for the latter.

Queen Mab has worked hard to make everyone in Faerie fear her, but her new little pleasure slave enjoys the kiss of her whip. Can the Dark Queen have a tender side? The Dragon King once loved her, after all, so there has to be more to her than the evil, ruthless queen we’ve seen so far.

Climb aboard and experience the best and worst the Winter Queen can dish out, and you may even find a surprise at the end.

NOTE: This story is an example of the author's writing when unfiltered. This is what she writes before beta readers and editors advise her to decrease the intensity, strike scenes, and make people nicer.

SLAVE was exclusive to Radish for a year, and after major revisions and editing, is now being published as four books in other venues.
