For over two thousand years, Humankind had colonised the local area of the galaxy known as The Orion Spur. In that time, factions rose and fell. Some were conquered. Others were conquerors. One such faction, The Kalenth Hegemony, a rigidly oppressive regime, had become one of the dominant powers in the region. Kikola ap Karthen, a young woman from an illustrious family of ruling elite, has been selected to lead the next great expansion and secure The Kalenth Hegemony as the only dominant power. Initially unaware of the life planned out for her, Kikola meets Tehvay, a woman from the opposite end of The Hegemony's strict social order – a slave. However, Tehvay is no ordinary slave, and Kikola finds herself drawn to the outspoken and captivating woman. Love and duty come into conflict, and Kikola has to make a fateful choice – a choice that could have dire consequences for herself and Tehvay, and the very society she had sworn to serve. Will Kikola risk everything – her position, her family, her destiny – for a chance at happiness and a life of her own choosing with the woman she loves?

Hi! Just moved on to this story after finishing the first 3 parts of the "Xena & Gabrielle Mythical Babes" series and noticed this is marked as #5. Only problem is, I can't seem to find #4. Is there supposed to be a story between "Gabrielle" and "Turning Point" and if so, where can I find it? Thanks! - Mich - Aug 27th, 2005   

The question above was "Is there supposed to be a story between 'Gabrielle' and 'Turning Point' and if so, where can I find it?" I am the author, so I can assure you that there is not a story between "Gabrielle" and "The Turning Point". The next story in the series is "Loosening the Chains". I chose not to write any stories set in the time frame of Xena or Gabrielle's childhood, except for our glimpse of Gabrielle's childhood ("Gabrielle") and several glimpses of Xena's childhood ("The Rest of Our Lives", "The Temple Incident", and flashback scenes in "Yesteryear".)I have donated my fiction to the folks here because I just don't have the time, energy, or creative spark to continue writing. I consider my Xena/Gabrielle universe closed, and my uber universe (not yet posted here) pretty much closed. IF I find time, I may send stories this way. Otherwise, I'll continue to erratically post to my little blog at http://jsstephens.tripod.com/blog/ .Feel free to click on the email link in my stories if you'd like a longer discussion. - JS Stephens - Aug 28th, 2005
