This is another in the Colony: Holiday Books about life in an experimental environment, where Titans and Humans live and (usually) cooperate and (sometimes) fall in love. It can be read stand-alone, though a lot of backstory is presented in previous books, including the history of the Colony. This is the story of Annie and Valentine's reunion, four years after he was presumed dead while Annie had been working in a lab, growing emus from their DNA to overcome her grief. Valentine was recently found in a stasis pod but was severely damaged, so badly he had to be regrown from his DNA. Their reunion is the theme of the story, made more poignant because Valentine's memories did not regrow with his body. Annie got the physical body without the memories of their past. It is a tender love story of a reunion with a climactic ending. It is a tender love story of a reunion with a climactic ending.
This short book was fun to read. Anna's second chance with Valentine, the husband she thought died, was heartbreaking and sweet before it turned steamy. I enjoyed reading it and I look forward to seeing more stories in the Colony.
