Wandfasted is a prequel to The Black Witch, and part of The Black Witch Chronicles by Laurie Forest.

Synopsis[edit | edit source]

Magic, romance and adventure collide in Wandfasted, the irresistible full-length ebook prequel to The Black Witch

Twenty years before Elloren Gardner enrolled at the illustrious Verpax University, Erthia was rent asunder during the devastating Realm War. When Tessla Harrow is driven from her home by the fighting, she discovers a depth of power she never knew she had... and an irresistible draw towards Vale Gardner, the son of the most powerful mage her people have ever known – the Black Witch.

Tessla Harrow is a Gardnerian Mage living in a world filled with Kelts who want to kill her. Her best friend Jules Kristian is in love with her, but she doesn’t feel the same, and even if she did he’s a Kelt, and the only thing that will make people hate her more is crossing that last line. They would call her a race traitor, a staen’en. This book follows Tessla, as she goes through first, a battle with the Kelts, then the judgement of the other Gardnerians who believe she is unpure, and then finally her own Wandfasting.
