**SHADOWS by Erin Jennifer - [Alt]
A splendid new story in the grand tradition of classic XWP tales, Erin's latest is set in the period following the rift between our warrior and bard. It begins aboard a ship on its way to the land of Eire fated to one day be known as Ireland. Answering a summons from an old acquaintance she once betrayed and now hopes to help, Xena has once again embarked on a journey certain to stir up bad memories, both for her and the bard at her side. Fresh from their battle with Dahak, the losses of Hope and Solon and their own painful estrangement, the two are still uncertain with one another. Making matters even more challenging is the growing awakening within them to their real feelings for one another even as they remain convinced that those feelings are not mutual. It's an insecurity others will prey upon as old grudges resurface and a very deadly enemy returns, determined this time to finish what was started not too long ago. One of our newer writers, Erin shows a remarkable insight into the makeup of these characters - what makes them tick, their insecurities, and most of all, their love and protectiveness toward one another. Beautifully written with good pacing, the story moves us right along with a well-designed plot set against an epic landscape of impending war and returning evil. A MUCH-WELCOMED return to the classic type of story that created such a solid foundation for Xena fan fiction, this is a MUST READ. VERY HIGHLY RECOMMENDED! - 109 pgs., 7/5/01
