Like many, I was less than thrilled with certain things in the series Finale. I felt strongly that the two episodes demanded a third to complete the arc.

Solstice Eve - Beowolf available in ebook format
I had the pleasure of getting a sneak peek of this story a while back and it's been a personal favorite ever since. Set in the time of the Winter Solstice, it has the warrior and her bard enjoying this magical time of the year while they stay at a village where the annual festival is in full swing. Delighting in all the activities, Gabrielle can't quite believe her stoic warrior seems to be enjoying herself too. What the storyteller does not know is that Xena has made careful plans to make sure everything is perfect for Gabrielle because for once she wants to show the bard just what she means to her. Beautiful. DO NOT MISS!. VERY HIGHLY RECOMMENDED! [See also the sequel Solstice Morning] 7/6/97

Soul's Winter - Darkone available in ebook format
Xena has a drinking problem.

Spellbound - Annemaart
It's hard to give a short description of this story without giving away parts of the plot. Lemme just stick with saying that: yes, this is another one of those post-FIN tales, but I'd like to think this one is different. This story isn't about getting Xena reheaded (though I'll admit that's what it started out to be right in the beginning). It's about stuff like redemption, true sacrifices and how sometimes little things, insignificant events that will fade and dissapear from the memories of most, can be far more meaningful than grand battles for 40.000 souls. It's about things that I felt FIN didn't deal with properly.

If you're looking for a light read, this ain't it. This story is dark and pretty complex. It's gonna have its comedy moments, but in the end it's gonna deal with some tough issues. You might like it. And you might not. Either way, I'll hope this'll make for an interesting read.
