I have been a follower for twenty years. Seen Cutter and his kin make it through the bad times and enjoy the good times. At one time or another, one of them would fascinate me more than the rest. Right now it's Moonshade with desire to become immortal. Looking back on the kind of character she was, always supporting Strongbow in his decisions, I had trouble rationalizing that. But then I had to compare this high-profile couple to a human marriage where she's a tailor and he's a politician. Sadly it wouldn't work. All in all, brava.
