Tolgrid's wife lives a secret life that he wants to forget, and so he visits Ladesan the Magus, who is known for his ability to alter and remove memories.

Magic is a risky art, even for those adept at it. Love is an even riskier affair, and some might say it is a magic of its own. To preserve his love, Tolgrid is willing to alter his recollection, to remove the bad memories like a leech removes bad blood.

The question is: can a memory be altered without altering the person, and can a memory be removed without leaving an emptiness inside?

 
 The Leech of Love by Dean F. Wilson (The Memory Magus)

The Leech of Love (The Memory Magus)In love with his wife, but devastated by her past, Tolgrid visits Ladesan the Magus. In the art of magic, there is danger, but those with the knowledge can be of great service when needed. Tolgrid wants to forget the knowledge he has, he is not strong enough to move forward, and Ladesan has the power to remove the painful memories . But at what risk to the relationship between Tolgrid and his wife? Will she learn to resent his inability to move on from the knowledge of the nightmares she actually lived?

Once again, Dean F. Wilson brings life and atmosphere to his short tale, even as he raises some interesting questions in one’s mind. the Leech of Love is short, but fulfilling as we are presented with the power of magic versus the power of love. Dean F. Wilson has a powerful voice in a land of fantasy and uses it to its best advantage.

I received this copy from Dean F. Wilson in exchange for my honest review.
