**WARRIOR AND THE BARD (THE) - REDEMPTION by Maven -- [Alt]
Part Three of the ALPHA/OMEGA TRILOGY, this story is poignant, heart-breaking, and reaffirming all at once. Set in the latter years of Gabrielle's life, it finds the bard once again taking to the road, on a journey to see friends and transfer for the last time a responsibility she was never able to fully embrace. Without her warrior now, it is a journey she begins alone never expecting the unlikely champion that soon begins to haunt her every move - a one time enemy who insists on resuming a game of truth or dare played long ago - perhaps to injure once again...or perhaps in search of the same redemption another lost soul found in a noble heart. Told in part as a series of diary entries, this is an emotional character study of two richly drawn, complex personalities. It is a haunting story that finally brings closure to the cycle of hatred - giving victory to the power of love and forgiveness. It is an absolute MUST READ for all Callisto fans and for every one else it comes HIGHLY RECOMMENDED as well! - 12 pgs., 6/10/98
**WARRIOR AND THE BARD (THE) - TEMPTATION by Maven -- [Alt]
Part two of the ALPHA/OMEGA TRILOGY is a haunting, beautiful, heart-wrenching story quite different in tone from Maven's first but very much equal in terms of quality. This is also a crossover tale featuring characters from Anne Rice's popular commercial novels. Set fifteen years after the warrior and bard first meet, the story has them leading a life together as innkeepers when they receive a visit from a mysterious stranger - a stranger with a very tempting offer... A very moving tale you wont soon forget. HIGHLY RECOMMENDED! - 4 pgs., 3/16/98
**WARRIOR AND THE BARD (THE) - TRIBUTE by Maven -- [Alt]
Part one of the ALPHA/OMEGA TRILOGY this is a very unique, clever new story that relies on a shifting point-of-view technique to draw some rather charming characterizations of our XWP favorites. As the story begins the warrior and bard are admitting some hidden truths to one another - truths that lead them to make some important decisions once they arrive in Amazonia. This story is a really delightful read that will have you grinning throughout. HIGHLY RECOMMENDED! - 13 pgs., 3/16/98
