Anthology: The Mammoth Book of Paranormal Romance
Story: 22 of 24
Romance Featured: Immortal
Opening Line: “It’d had been a long, cold . . . Millenium.”
The Wager is a Lords of Avalon story and I am afraid it is strictly for the fans. Thomas Mallory is reminiscing about how he came to be incarcerated in the limbo of Avalon. It tells a story within a story. Meant to be a humorous piece, Thom recounts the lesson of one of the questions you do not ask a woman, particularly a female Merlin. This struck me as more of a piece of flash fiction than a fully constructed short story. The weakest of the entries so far.
