This is so much better than the first book. Darius is such a relatable character, as is what he goes through in this book.

I didnt expect the second book to hit has hard as the first one did but here I am driving to work crying over the last few chapters. 

Such an incredible duology and a strong follow up to a stunning first book.

"Why come back to Darius?

That's the question I kept asking myself. But the answer ended up being fairly simple: because he had more to say."

I can't begin to explain how much I love this book. It reads like a diary of someone you know so well that you're unsure whether you're reading your own. Thank you, Adib Khorram, for writing these books and for letting me meet Darius. Thank you.
