SOUL'S PLEDGE by Maggie
Emotional story set in the fourth season which finds Xena and Gabrielle returning to Amphipolis after another trying ordeal to recuperate and spend time with their old friend Lanessa. It is a difficult time for them both as the warrior agonizes over how her past continues to affect Gabrielle's life and the young bard worries that Xena might once again be thinking of leaving her behind. Maggie paints a wonderfully compelling picture of the Xena/Gab friendship here, establishing it as paramount in both their lives. Including a number of nicely dramatic scenes, this is a very satisfying read. DO NOT MISS!! - 59 pgs.

ALL I EVER WANTED WAS YOU by Nene Adams
Nene adds yet another terrific tale to her CHAMBER OF HORRORS SERIES with an eerie yet poignant story about unrequited love, madness, guilt and revenge. On their way to an Amazon ceremony, Xena and the bard have to go through the kingdom of Attalos - a territory which holds very bad memories for the Warrior Princess. Concerned by her partner's increasingly troubling nightmares and erratic behavior, the bard decides to do a little investigating eventually learning the truth about a brutal episode from Xena's past and uncovering the deadly obsession now threatening them both because of it.
