    This wasn t nearly as difficult to track down as I thought it was going to be, though I did have to pay 2 for a fairly short novella I don t regret it Edit 16th Apr 2018 It has come to my attention that since Amberquill.com stopped trading this short story has become significantlydifficult to find since I bought it Hopefully one day Ms Draven will make it available via her website because it was a great read I really enjoyed this, though I am now left with the desire to see this This wasn t nearly as difficult to track down as I thought it was going to be, though I did have to pay 2 for a fairly short novella I don t regret it Edit 16th Apr 2018 It has come to my attention that since Amberquill.com stopped trading this short story has become significantlydifficult to find since I bought it Hopefully one day Ms Draven will make it available via her website because it was a great read I really enjoyed this, though I am now left with the desire to see this fleshed out as a full length novel I d love to see a little bit about Savarin before she got to that planet and how she managed to get there, then her becoming part of the household and her daily interactions with Komar and Herad I d like to have seen what happened after the arena too I think there s a great deal that could be spun out in to a fully fleshed and interesting universe Sadly this was written in 2006 so I doubt that the author will ever go back and do that, but I can dream
