"Beware the Lion's Roar" (Sentinel/Highlander)

Reviewed by Kathryn A on 28th October 2001 (5)

I pounced on this story because I have good expectations of this author's crossovers, and what's more, I like stories where Alex isn't treated as a psycho-evil-bitch-monster. I was glued to the page because I wanted to find out whether Methos would succeed in reforming Alex or not. On the downside, oddly enough, I didn't feel any tension in the presence of Jim and Blair in the story -- they just spent the time running around not finding anything out -- maybe the story would have been more focused if it had been limited to the scenes from Methos's and Alex's point of view. I felt as if I was being told everything twice, what with multiple dreams about the Lion (though it was a cool dream, a little variation would have been nice). Perhaps part of the problem for me was that I just don't see Methos as a lion. Lions aren't cunning enough. Methos is a warrior, yes (and I loved how he surprised Alex) but he succeeds through cunning more than strength (like how he misled Jim with the truth). I also liked Millie, but again, I feel she was overused. I liked the way Alex see-sawed from one thing to another, so you weren't sure what the final outcome would be (except that you were, because of all the foreshadowing).

Once again, this author demonstrates that she knows how to write crossovers. Both shows were balanced, well-represented and in character. It was cool how Warren kept on turning up, and how Jim didn't want to have anything to do with them. I liked how the kidnapping was for an unexpected reason. And I liked the talk that Jim and Steven had at the end.

"Prima Donnas And Secrets" (Sentinel/Highlander)

Reviewed by Kathryn A on 18th December 1999

Jim Ellison and Blair Sandburg have to guard Claudia Jardine from an assassin - and she doesn't want to be guarded. This one is worth reading again. It actually manages to have a Highlander crossover without (a) someone new becoming immortal or (b) everyone explaining their secrets to the other parties. Not that I really mind those things happening, it's just refreshing when they don't.

Addendum: This story is also available at the Seventh Dimension archive (http://www.seventh-dimension.com/), which is where I first found it.

Reviewed by Kathryn A on 3rd December 2000 (8)

I liked the guest-character Nyajiru in this! Not to mention the Dreams! Visions! Angst! It was an interesting take on the Sentinel-Shaman thing that the spirits come to Jim because he wouldn't listen otherwise; that's an interpretation I haven't seen, that doesn't make Blair out to be lacking or slacking. Jim is a bit too suspicious of Nya, IMHO; I wondered what bee had got in Jim's bonnet; but maybe that's because I, the reader, already knew that Nya was a good guy.


(1) "Reassignment" (Highlander)

Reviewed by Kathryn A on 17th July 2006 (1)

Dr. Amy Zoll receives the Methos project and learns a bit about who Methos really is.

A good Watcher-centric tale, catching glimpses of "The Messenger" and the Horsemen episodes from the Watcher point of view. Ah, the assumptions that people make...
