In each installment of 7 Hours, a character is visited by the enigmatic Thomas Constant, who makes a heart-stopping statement: “You are about to die. But you may choose from one of three options: Live seven more hours, travel back in time and relive seven hours, or accept the inevitable and die now.”
Mike Harden is living a comfortable life when he discovers he is going to die. Though skeptical of the stranger’s offer, Mike chooses to go back sixteen years to the day he married Ashley.
When Mike realizes this wish has come true, it doesn’t take him long to begin to make plans. He didn’t relive this because it was the happiest day of his life. Mike made this choice in order to go back to the moment when a man named Vince Levy first saw Ashley. The first and only time Vince saw the woman he would go on to kill ten years later. Mike has gone back to his wedding day to kill his wife’s murderer.
The clock is ticking. What will you do with the time you have left?

If you were presented with a choice at the moment of your death, to live another 7 hours or to go back and relive any 7 hours of your life, what would you chose? Either way, you will die it's just you are given a choice in how you wish to spend your final hours? This is just the decision presented in the 7 Hours Series. In Tear Drop by Travis Thrasher, Mike Harden, owner of the Grind coffee shop is moments away from suffering from a massive heart attack when Mr. Thomas Constant pays him a visit just in the final minutes of his life. The choice is his, 7 hours more, or any 7 hours in his past. At first, Mike can't believe it but when pressured for a choice in the final minute, his is an easy one. He wants to go back to his wedding day, the day where he can confront one of his wedding guests and one who will ultimately kill his wife based on meeting her that fateful day. But just how is possible to kill a man on your wedding day and go completely unnoticed? Taking his training as a former cop, Mike tries to remember back what happened that day, but the unfortunate timing of his wedding coordinator keeps Mike so busy, it's hard to find a way to confront Vince without leaving witnesses and still participating in his wedding day. Will he be able to go through with it or will his actions forever change the future he would have later in life? This short story collection in the 7 Hours Series, reminds me of Lay's Potato Chip's saying comparing this series of books, You can't read just one! These are so addicting and wonderful to read, you have to know how they all turn out. Each author was presented with the same premise, but their story creativity was left up to their own area of literature expertise. Being a huge fan of anything Travis Trasher writes, I had to scoop this one up. I was not disappointed in any way, and this was the second book I read in this collection, but definitely NOT my last. I easily rate this one a 5 out of 5 stars and highly recommend this to fans of such stories of The Twilight Zone and Night Gallery, because that is what these remind me of. For now, I am off to read the next one!
Queen Chysilis nodded as she healed Rarity." Yes, I'll help. Destroying Equestria is my dream. I only want one thing in return: i want to be ruler." Rarity smiled devilishly." We will rule together. Thats my offer." Chysilis sighed." Fine. We'll be joint leaders. Then my Changelings will roam free!" Rarity nodded."Of course. Now, shall we round up some others?" Queen Chysilis gave her a look. "What do you mean, others?" The queen asked. Rarity laughed and got up." Oh you know. Timberwolves, Sombra, other monsters." The queen raised her eyebrow." Sombra? I thought he was destroyed." She said. Rarity shook her head, smiling." Oh, no. If we turn the Crystyl Empire back how it was when Sombra ruled, he'll return. Maybe we can convince the Windigos to freeze them." By now, some Changelings had gathered around, listening closely."Yes, i guess we shall round them up. Though, i must say, you look familier." Crysilis said. <p> meanwhile... <p> Twilight teleported the ponies home. Or, she tried. They ended up in the middle of the Everfree forest." Why did you teleport us here, Twilight?" Pinkie asked." I-i dont know why it took us here." She stuttered, clearly dumbfounded her spell hadnt worked. There was the sound of wings beating. Everypony looked at the sky to see Queen Chysilis, Nightmare Rarity, and an army of more than a thousand Changelings.
