This book had a lot going on; paranormal forces, nuclear explosion, a murder mystery and a natural disaster all play a part. While I didn’t think all of this was quite necessary, it kept the story moving. The characters are what kept me reading, though. I was most amazed by Ernst and Sylvie’s relationship and personalities. They seemed very real to me and their humor was infectious. Even though they were out of their bodies for most of the story, Ernst and Sylvie managed to have the best development, conversations and definitely the most fun. I did like the combination of paranormal and science fiction for the explanation of the in-between, the dark matter and I wish that aspect was explored a little more. The last quarter of the book really picked up pace as the many elements came together for a dramatic ending.
