Seraphin threw one last glance backward, at the fallen tree he'd once admired for its resilience. The pale gray bark had already grown darker from dirt. It seemed at peace, lying on the ground, half its twisted branches broken. Perhaps it deserved the rest. Perhaps everything would be okay, despite its fall. After all, Seraphin had learned to stay proud and stand on his own just in time. The tree’s legacy was another he’d be proud to carry on.* * *Yes, I'm quoting the entire last paragraph i [...]
"It doesn't matter if your brain thinks it doesn't know who you are. Something in side you does, and it'll scream if it thinks you're on the wrong path."This was a good backstory for Seraphin, and while it was violent and sad, I am always here for heroic bisexuals.

This makes me want to hug Seraphin so much. Alex is everything affirming and awesome, and Stern is so loyal and wonderful here (going to go cry over Viral Airwaves, don't mind me)."It doesn't matter if your brain thinks it doesn't know who you are. Something inside you does, and it'll scream if you're on the wrong path."
Note: I wrote this review a while ago, for another side, but it still stands.This was an engaging read. It was cute, it was cruel, it was intense. The characters felt real, and I felt for them. The story is well crafted. I am a fan. I read this novella after the novel the characters are from, Viral Airwaves, but you can absolutely read it separately or before the novel without being lost. If you've read and enjoyed the book, I absolutely recommend it. It'll give you deeper insight into a charact [...]
An interesting plot and flowed nicely.The friendship/ relationship between Serephin and Alex was sweet and beautifully written.It was nice to see a book featuring an agender character in a positive light who was accepted readily by their friend.
A really nice, short book. It took me a while to sympathise with the main character's choices, but in the end I feel like I understood him. I also really loved the character of Alex and thought they were very well-written.
