Max receives a piece of his mother's funerary jewelry and realizes that he now has the power to touch certain objects and relive their owner's last moments. But exactly how far will he need to go to reach divinity?

This e-book includes the original short story as well as an essay about the origins of the idea for this tale. (ages 13 & up)

Max receives an old piece of jewelry from his deceased mother, and this allows him to see the last moments of a person by touching an object.

I enjoyed this original short story. The two characters are well depicted, and the dialogs are fluid. The twist at the end was especially disturbing.

I am not really into stories about angels, but I think this one was well written. I just wish it had been longer and more developed.

Michael Sanguinetti’s narration was quite good. Checking Audible, I see this is his second audiobook, but he has improved immensely since his first. The audio quality, although, not perfect, is very good, and the character’s interpretations are very well done. I am impressed, and I am looking forward to future books narrated by Sanguinetti.

I received a copy of this book in audio format from the narrator in exchange for an honest review.

My name is Elena. Since I was a little child I loved science fiction and fantasy, and I can’t resist to a good novel. In 2015, while wait I started to listen to audiobooks and I discovered the pleasure in being able to read while doing my daily tasks, so there’s always an audiobook playing on my phone. If you see me with my Bluetooth headphones on, please be gentle, I get easily startled.

I live with my boyfriend, which I met during my six year stay in Belgium, two cockatiels, five lovebirds, and two Gouldian finches in Madrid, Spain; and I like to spend my free time knitting and sewing while listening to audiobooks.
