**ELEMENTAL by JTD
Set immediately after the events in the episode ONE AGAINST AN ARMY, this is an epic first-time story offering a captivating look at the Xena/Gab friendship in transition as the two finally find in the ever strengthening foundation of love between them the courage to at last share all that's in their hearts. It's an emotional journey that takes place as the two become engaged in yet another life or death struggle, helping an old friend to protect refugees from Tripolis trying to make it past slavers to reach the safety of Thessaly. They soon uncover that an even more heinous evil is at work in the efforts against the refugees. To fight that evil they must put their personal issues on hold, but all the while warrior and bard are moving closer to one another and dealing with the unspoken fears and regrets that have haunted them since their recent rift. JTD does a very nice job with the characterizations of our two leads and doesn't shy away from the harsher realities these two women experienced during the conflict which almost destroyed them. Despite the intensity of some scenes, the relationship here projects an easy-going, gentle caring that makes it incredibly appealing. The overall plot is well-structured and well paced offering a good combination of action and drama. One for the MUST READ list, this one comes HIGHLY RECOMMENDED! - 152 pgs., 5/1/00

**ELEUSINIAN MYSTERIES (THE) by Baermer
A very, VERY special new story from this talented bard! - long, FULL of mystery, suspense, and a love that will take your breath away. Just as Gabrielle finally breaks through the walls to Xena's heart, the Warrior Princess is summoned to the coastal city of Eleusis where preparations are under way for the highly secretive ceremonies known as the Eleusinian Mysteries. The monarch there needs Xena's help in dealing with a deadly threat to the ceremonies - a mission that will challenge her and the little bard to try to decipher the very meaning or the Mysteries...or risk losing each other forever. Extremely well-written and edited, this story contains possibly THE most beautiful sentence I have EVER read in alt. fiction - I'll leave THAT a mystery for you all to discover ;-) VERY HIGHLY RECOMMENDED! [See also THE PELOPONNESIAN WAR SERIES] - 55 pgs., 5/15/97
