Review:
You'll have to give this one a bit of patience, because the first bit is little melodramatic (even for Sentinel standards) and has a few irritating typos. It's worth it, however, because once Jim and Blair get together this story sucks you in and doesn't let you go.

A year or so after the end of the series, Blair is living on the streets (you'll have to read to find out why). One day he runs into Jim at an outdoor cafe, and learns for the first time that Jim's life hasn't gone so great after Blair's departure, what with the bone cancer, and the bombing of his apartment, and the loss of his job. Still, Jim's found a surprising new use for his sentinel talents and he and Blair always do best when they are together...

I really like Jim and Blair in this story. Jim is hanging on by his fingernails, but he's a stubborn bastard and that comes through with every word. Blair isn't doing as well, but every once in a while his exuberance bubbles up and it's delightful to read. Most of all, though, I love the way Jim's senses find a new outlet, one that is both highly original and yet totally plausible. An all-around fascinating premise and an engaging story.

I saved this story to my HD ages ago, but with one thing and another I didn't find the time to read it and so I forgot all about it until I saw it mentioned here.

Suffice to say after reading your rec I dug it out today and finally read it and what a treat it is.

Thank you for so much mentioning it here.
