"Love's Footsteps" by Cat Rambo appeared in Daily Science Fiction on January 29, 2013. "A wizard who keeps his heart locked away (literally) goes on an odyssey with his faithful servant is search of a stimulus that will evoke an emotional response within him."
"Love's Footsteps" is a mini epic adventure that held my interest from beginning to end. I appreciated the allusions to Greek mythology, and the ending, which is pure poetry, took me completely by surprise. Brava! 7 out of 7 rocket-dragons.
