Review by: Estara Swanberg on Sep. 02, 2010 :
** MASSIVE spoiler alert **

This was actually better than I remembered. I like the shift to Segnbora and dealing with her issues to make the group strong in their fight to bring Fire back for all - and to do things in the name of the Goddess.

The rape is as scary and horrid as I remember and I'm so utterly in awe that the forgiving part still seems believable - but then I have never experienced this, so I don't know how it would read for a true survivor.
