**REMEMBER, NEVER TO FORGET by Sinful - [Alt]
A SPECTACULAR debut for a new bard, this epic saga is a combination first-time/hurt-comfort story almost exclusively centered on the Xena/Gab relationship in a riveting tale that has them revisiting some of the most difficult episodes from their past as they try to deal with an agonizing new challenge to their happiness. Set after the events in the episode A FAMILY AFFAIR, the novel opens with the warrior and bard approaching Amazon territory as they struggle to deal with the emotions they can no longer deny feeling for one another. Those feelings end up rushing to the surface after Xena is injured in a fight, prompting the two friends to at last embrace the love and passion between them. Their happiness, however, is short-lived as fate soon tears them apart, leaving a devastated Gabrielle and a desperate Amazon Nation searching for a Warrior Princess who seems to have disappeared from the face of the world. What they'll eventually find is a woman without a past - a woman shattered by a horrific trauma who must now start to rebuild her life again with the help of a bard torn between her need to help the woman she loves - and an agonizing fear of what reliving some of that past will do to them. This is INTENSE guys. Nice writing, heavy angst, solid characterizations, a strong supporting cast and a very compelling depiction of the Xena/Gab relationship which deals not only with their love for one another but also their insecurities, regrets and fears. A thoroughly satisfying read. VERY HIGHLY RECOMMENDED! - 278 pgs., 3/15/00
