Available in the anthology, Legends.
So far i’ve really enjoyed reading Gaie’s books but, sadly, i just feel this short fell a little short.
While i do think the redemption thing can be good fodder to build a story around, i just think in this case it’s all got a bit too rushed. Probably would have been much better as a novella, at least.
But, ho hum, every favourite writer has to write at least one thing that just doesn’t work for the fangirl/fanboy reader: does anyone remember The Girl in Red?
