External Reviews[edit]

I'm no good at writing reviews but let me assure you that this story is wonderful! It's a tender and bittersweet tale of two friends becoming more, after one of them has survived cancer (happening prior to the story). I couldn't help but fall in love with the main characters Lysander and Felix, who are both complex and believable. My review doesn't do it justice, but this story has it all: emotions, attention to detail, plot... Go read it!
