A very boring recap of the early episodes. I could not finish this book due to sheer repetition and boredom factors. The books is suppose to be written from Gabriel's perspective. Well, if she was annoying in the show at times, she is an utter nightmare from this perspective. I swear the author liked Xena but hated Gabriel. Not the she s my favorite either but still...
No new character insight is available nor new backround story info. My advice-if you like Xena, just rewatch the series. Much mo

Xena: "It was all right. Maybe it could've done with a few more fight scenes."

Gabrielle: "Everyone's a critic."

[When Fates Collide, S6E18, when Gabrielle asks if Xena really liked her play.]

If I'd read this straight through and been expecting deep insights I'd have been disappointed. I just read a couple pages or so a day and it made me smile. Very "A Day in the Life", not "The Debt".

A quick read that may be time better spent re-watching the series on DVD. Despite being quite authentic in channelling the voice of Gabrielle, this slim volume basically recaps seasons 1 and 2. It does not give extra insight into the characters and even the convincing voice suddenly drops away in the second half, leaving only dull platitudes.
