**OUT OF SARAJEVO by Poto -- [Alt]
Poto's fanfic debut is an absolutely gripping uber experience guaranteed to leave a very lasting impression. Set amidst the horrors of the civil war in modern day Sarajevo, the story opens with a grizzly scene as photojournalist Taylor Wilson tries to chronicle the bloody aftermath of yet another attack on the city's terrified residents. Helping the wounded, army officer Alex Ryan cares little about the photographer's dedication to her job wanting only her assistance with those wounded. It is a surprised Taylor then who later finds the tall, beautiful army officer at her door wanting to recruit her for a very secretive and very dangerous mission. Resuming a partnership as old as time, the two set in motion a plan that will unknowingly reunite two halves of a soul, pitting them against overwhelming odds and proving once again that indeed...courage can change the world. Including some terrific, heart-stopping action sequences, this story further elevates itself above the rest with beautifully drawn characterizations of two very believable contemporary heroines. Driven by a sense of urgency and the knowledge of an uncertain future, the relationship they form in very little time is among the most deeply stirring I've read in a while. Poignant and reaffirming at the same time, this one will have you smiling one minute and then reaching for that kleenex box the next. Additionally, Poto's story is a wonderful tribute to the photojournalists who risk their lives every day in order to bring attention to the many injustices and atrocities still very much a part of our world. A MUST READ folks! It gets my HIGHEST RECOMMENDATION! - 30 pgs., 12/22/98
