Tristan and Jinsu are back! It's now seven months into their fairy-tale romance, and Tristan and Jinsu couldn't be happier. But when Jinsu falls ill with a mysterious, lingering condition, everything changes. Jinsu's magic is dying and taking him with it. Suddenly the couple's desire to find a way back to Jinsu's home world is more than just a dream—it's a necessity. With Jinsu's time quickly running out, Tristan is forced to seek help from someone he'd hoped to never, ever lay eyes on again.
The love of your life is sick--terminal. What would you do to save him? Would you go beyond every comfort zone or let him go with grace? Not sure? Then you need to read The Door Under the Bridge by D.C. Juris. I guarantee, you won't want to miss this book.
I know when I open a book by D.C. Juris, I'm in for a hot time. This book, while hot, also packs a healthy dose of heart. The writing was nice and tight. It kept me right in my seat, needing to know what would happen next. Although this is a short read, I felt like I was right there with Tristan, agonizing over what to do for Jinsu. There were moments my heart ached for the man. And Jinsu. He's not even from Earth and he's madly in love with Tristan. I could hardly imagine his heartache. There are lots of little plot twists I didn't see coming and I'm glad. When I thought the story would go one way, D.C. Juris took it a totally different way that had me guessing what would happen to Tristan and Jinsu. Kudos. By the way, I loved Agnes. She's a pip and a welcome giggle in the story.
I did say this was a short story. So there are times when it's a little thin on details, but rest assured, the story is fantastic as is. Sure, I want to know what's going to happen next. I'm on the edge of my seat waiting and yes, D.C. Juris, you have a fan for life.
If you want a story that will tug at the heartstrings and make you squirm in your seat, then you need to read The Door Under the Bridge. It's worth a second, third, and fourth reading.
