    Summary

    Princess Zelie has had a lot to think about over the past year. In the realm of Queensland, where sororal polygyny is (for practical reasons) the rule of law, all sisters in a family group marry the same husband. Sixth eldest she may be - but at the head of her little coterie of sisters, she's still *an* Eldest. Isn't she?

    Seventeen-year-old Jerin Whistler, the Prince Consort, does his best to be a good husband to all ten of his wives. For the elder set, nearer his age or a little older, that means pleasing them in the bedroom. For the younger set, like Zelie, all not yet ten, it means spending time with them in the playroom. He would never complain of being bored. He's grown up with seventeen youngest sisters and brothers, after all - he can usually handle five little girls' boisterous antics.

    But sometimes, even his child brides are a little exhausting. So when he dozes off while playing battle during the youngests' history reenactment for the first time, nine-year-old Zelie takes charge.

    Summary

    The World of A Brother’s Price is a bit of a mystery, as is the original novel itself. There's so much we don't know about this world. One thing is clear, though; Whatever and wherever it is, there's something really, really wrong with it.

    Summary

    It's the fall of 1962, both on an alternate Earth very much like ours,
    and in the world of Wen Spencer's A Brother's Price.
    And those worlds are about to intersect.

    The story fills in some of the details hinted at in the original novel.

    * * *

    A catastrophic event blasts an inexperienced, socially awkward 15-year-old boy
    from an Earth similar to ours into the world of Wen Spencer's A Brother's Price.
    A world where men are outnumbered by women is any horny teenage
    boy's fantasy, right? Ah, but the devil is in the details.

     

    * * *

     

    This is a complete novelette-length prequel to Wen Spencer's fine book.
