It wasn’t easy to write a romance around a story about a boy dying at 21 years old, but the author managed it perfectly; there is no indulging in the wordly life of Gregory, and she focused instead on what happened after, how Thanatos recreates a private Paradise for the two of them, where Gregory can finally enjoy all the happiness of life without the pain of living in a body that was unable to allow him all of that.
The story is mostly sweet, even when they have sex, it’s more dream-like than erotic. If you were worried this story to be sad, or bittersweet, forget it, no sadness in it.
