Summary: He wants Yusuf to hold his hand again. Grab his ankle. Flick his ear. Thrust his sword into his chest and breath into his mouth. Yet, they have the long ocean of eternity ahead of them. These whims are nothing but a swell under their ship: gone as soon as they come. Nicolo knows better than to jump overboard and drown alone trying to chase them. —– Alternate title: “You’d Feel Pretty Weird If You Developed a Crush on the Only Other Immortal You Know, Right?”

Recommendation: As The Old Guard began to fill my dash, I became more and more intrigued and eager to see if Joe&Nicky were as advertised but it took me some time to find the time to watch the movie. Well, I can say that they are just as advertised and the movie was so, so awesome and I am so excited for a sequel! And if that wasn’t enough then we have this story. So very good. I mean, just wow. I love all of the little character-building details. I love Nicky’s voice and how in love he is even before he notices. And Joe, dear god, he is a treasure and a blessing. I really can’t say enough about this one. Do yourself a favor and read it.
