I think it’s kind of a neat concept that the author portrays, but I feel its execution was messy. I spent the majority of the story trying to figure out and understand the big picture of what exactly they were and what that meant for them. Despite the bits and pieces of the backstory and buildup, I felt no real connection to either character other than some pity for the circumstances surrounding both of their deaths and resulting afterlives. The romance also felt opportunistic and superficial, and I was disappointed that we never even got to see them fully explore it. The only particular part I liked was the resolution in the last page or two. Unfortunately, it is with a heavy heart that I must say this one fell flat with me and I just didn’t enjoy it at all.
