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

Pro: A nice story, in which Salpe learns to overcome her prejudices and will raise the child to honor the sacrifice of its parents.

Con: It’s hard to believe that Cirrus and Haze didn’t simply return home with their results once she became pregnant. Or that they found no better solution to their problem than to die at the citadel.

  1. Good story. Fun realizing the demons are human and puzzling out what Salpe looks like.
