    The story starts quickly, with Emma stumbling upon the washed up

    The story starts quickly, with Emma stumbling upon the washed up body of Travis, and as he asks for help, she makes a quick decision to grant him a little extra time. She fears how he’ll respond to her gift given the cost. Will he understand everything she has to tell him? Will he use his time wisely? Will he make the choice she finds herself yearning for him to make? She can only find out when he finally wakes, transformed.

    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.
