This story starts out a few months after the deaths of Solan and Hope and Xena and Gabrielle are working on healing their friendship. They travel to an old friend of Xena’s who is contending with a growing army outside of the walls of his castle. While helping him with his issues, the women work through theirs.
It’s not an exciting read, by the author’s own admission, but it held my attentions enough to finish it. The ending was definitely left open enough for a sequel. In fact, I thought the other two stories bundled with the file I picked up from pdafiction.com contained a trilogy. Instead, it contains three unrelated stories.
I checked around at a few different sites but couldn’t find a sequel. The author, sadly, passed away in January of 2001 after a battle with cancer.
