The Price

How much would you give, for love or power? In this short story by fantasy author Cass Morris, a witch, a soldier, and a prince have all paid their own prices, in blood and heartache, to achieve their dreams. But while Tala works her charms and spells for the people of her home village, militant Jess believes her friend could use her powers to a greater purpose—if she can make peace with past pains and learn to harness her magic in a new way.
