    Summary

    There's a thousand stories out there of wedding-night kisses that involve superhuman canine teeth embedded in the carotid artery, a gift of eternal un-life in exchange for loss of humanity. But there are no stories about a honeymoon hospital stay and superhuman healing granted to save your wife from broken bones and an anesthetic allergy in exchange for primal hunger and a killer monthly cycle.

    Summary

    There have always been time travellers.

    As far as humanity reaches back, there’ve been stories of the ones that can walk through time. No one knows much about them - there’s talk about creatures with too long limbs and too sharp teeth, claws instead of hands that can rip out hearts with a sweet-tongued prayer and the lines they write with their own blood to mark the things they change.

    And change they do.

    It is like a universal rule that the world requires balance and that consequently, every action leaves its traces.

    (Laura has worn hers since birth.)

    OR

    Laura keeps on meeting a mysterious girl everywhere and weird things happen as they try to figure out how they are connected to each other.
    Hopefully before it kills them.
