As a reviewer I'm supposed to convey why I would recommend a story be read, but there are times when I read a story and I'm left almost speechless. This story written by Volentrin is one of those stories.

In the description of the story the author says "that a man wakes in the hospital after suffering severe brain damage. He is confused and disoriented, and seems to be someone else in this body." This is just the tip of the iceberg. This is not your typical guy waking up from a coma to be given a second chance story. There's more there than meets the eye and the author does a fantastic job opening up the discovery of what's really there.

And when I finished the last chapter all I could think was: "Wow!" Followed by the hope that there would be another story about this character. And to my delight there was the author's comment that he has introduced someone to whom he wants to return. I'm looking forward to this return and every how many returns there are to come.
