Don't fret, spoilers are in the spoiler tags at the end of the post. Read away.
A really nice tearjerker. A caravan master and his brother are kidnapped by the very prisoners they are trying to transport over Deadlands (I think that's what the name was) to the bordering country.
The former prisoners deliver brothers to their God who identifies Mikon, the caravan master, as his lover's reincarnation. Mikon has no recollection of such an atrocity. The God then possesses the body of his Chosen, the prisoners' leader, and proceeds raping Mikon. Turns out The Chosen has no control over the God -surprise! - and is a slave himself.
What a tearjerker that was! I have to admit I used a tissue. A Tissue, people. One. I am not the one to lose it. Ever. But this was a special occasion, Mikon's pain too beautiful a thing to ignore.
So, why four stars instead of five?
