5th sentence, 74th page: The sin-eater was female.
She’s a sin-eater and he ferries the dead to their final destination. But sometimes the job gets in the way of romance… And romance gets in the way of the job.
I liked this story. I’ve vaguely heard of sin-eaters before, but never really known much more than the title. It was incredibly amazing and fun to read a story that featured such a creature. The fact that it also had demons and all other sorts of horrors in it… well, that just made it all that much better.
The romance aspect of this story really didn’t take centre stage. At least, not for me. For me, this whole tale was about the role of a sin-eater and the debate of morals. It is a great story that shows you that sometimes what you think is right, isn’t necessarily correct.
I love the discussion of morals and what is actually right and wrong throughout this story. The idea that consequences exist for every decision. Regardless of what the motives behind such a choice are…
