Before the Eighth

Author Name: Saniya Saheer | Format: Paperback | Genre : Literature & Fiction | Other Details

“I hate this process of cleaning up, one after the other, burning the mistakes and fears, just to see the ashes reforming and then burning them down again. And one day, the flame that is supposed to burn the fears down burns our fragile lifeline, but its ashes don’t reform. Instead, we go away, as dust and memories.”

For Samuel Colton, it was the death of his girlfriend. For Muriel Payton, it was her childhood friend. For Layla Beckett, it was her best friend. For Aiden Hunter, it was his only companion. For Evan Miles, it was his friendly neighbour. 

Five deaths. Five loved ones. A single connection. 

With his friends, Samuel embarks on a journey of love, friendship, loss and pain, fighting battles and overpowering demons that lurk in his life. You could maybe call this a tale of valour, friendship, hope and strength. But, above all, this is a tale of loss and death.
