Among the ashes of a dying world, an agent of the Commandant finds a letter. It reads: Burn before reading. Thus begins an unlikely correspondence between two rival agents hellbent on securing the best possible future for their warring factions. Now, what began as a taunt, a battlefield boast, grows into something more. Something epic. Something romantic. Something that could change the past and the future. Except the discovery of their bond would mean death for each of them.

! submitted by mlmchale on August 20, 2019, 10:33pm This book is fantastic! Gladstone and El-Mohtar are both wonderful on their own, and this collaborative work is pure genius.

A Beautiful Mix of Sci-Fi and Poetry submitted by kkrasity on July 19, 2020, 8:18pm This short book packs a lot of beauty into its pages. It starts off with an interesting sci-fi premise and becomes more intricate and poetic by the chapter, creating an ultimately very clever and romantic story.

Fantastic and beautiful science fiction submitted by judahorli on August 16, 2021, 10:20am A beautifully written, poetic piece of science fiction. I adored the letter writing format, the romance, the world building. A genius piece of work.
