 Rated 8/10
morgaine and nhi vanye meet, under circumstances neither fully appreciate about the other - vanye, because he has no concept of morgaine's nature, far less her purposes, and she, because she neither knows, nor can afford to care what effects she has upon the people she passes through upon her quest to close down the gates between worlds destabilising, and well on their way to destroying, the universe.
to vanye she is a legend; an ill omen, perhaps; but still someone who he, outcast from his people, can serve, and so regain honour; to morgaine, vanye is useful, offering possibly essential local knowledge and help in completing one part of her mission in the here and now, this here and now; but liable to be at best an encumbrance, quite possibly an embarrassment, in and on the other worlds she must visit, to continue closing down the gates.
- but, since she needs his help now, she accepts his offer of service - not realising that, for nhi vanye, this offer is of his service for life.

through the greater and lesser dangers of their journey across unfamiliar country, they begin to realise to some extent quite how much they have misunderstood in their initial appreciation of each other, and the relationship between them begins to change from that which either of them presumed it to be.
