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

Pro: Ipsita and Hans are a cultural mismatch much as human beings are a mismatch for Svieg. Ipsita wants her husband back, whatever their problems were, and by dealing with the "houseguest" we think she managed it.

Con: The story is heavy on infodumps, heavy on narration that tells rather than shows, and light on dialogue and action. Arlishya asks why she wanted Hans back anyway, since they had ceased to get along, and we never get a satisfying answer to that.
