Selene is an amazing character. This story is from her point of view only. Which I loved. We get to know of her past, and a bit before she died. Which was the worst parts, really. It was awful. And heartbreaking. This story was brutal. But also really, really great. Because Selene seemed like such an amazing person. So kind and sweet. Loved that she sang. She was happy.
This short story is less than fifty pages long. I won't spoil everything that happens. But I will talk a bit about what it's about and the characters. I adored Selene. And we also got to see more of Harley and Kayleigh and Victria and Orion and Bartie. But also Luthor. Harley is adorable like always. Sigh. I wished there were more of him in the books.. I loved reading about him and Kayleigh. They were just so sweet together. Sobs and sobs.
I also enjoyed reading more about Victria. She's kind of awesome. A bit angry. And a bit sad. Kind of hated that Bartie loved her, because I wanted him to care for Selene, like she loved him half her life.. It was all just so sad. Sniffs. But oh. I loved reading about them all. The crazy kids at the hospital. They were all perfect. Except for Luthor. At first he did seem sweet and kind. There is kind of a romance between him and Selene. And I might have liked it for a bit. But then it all changes. And ahh.
As They Slip Away is horrible. Perfect. I loved every page of it. But oh. I wanted it longer and longer. It was so good, and I never wanted it to end, because the ending is so damn sad. There is so much death in these books by Beth. Sobs. But it is also so perfect. This short story was amazing. And I'm hoping very much that Beth will write more about this amazing series. I cannot wait to read Shades of Earth in a few days. It will be perfect. Also, I adore Beth. In case you didn't know that already :D Met her too. <3
