Mini-Review (click to view--possible spoilers)

Pro: Lots of tension and action. Pahlu fights nobly, bravely, and wins a costly victory.

Con: The story makes the sraa seem so invincible that we wonder if Pahlu's victory isn't in vain. if they're that deadly and that hard to kill, there doesn't seem to be a lot of hope. Also, however great his victory, without a hand he's not likely to be doing any more fighting.
