Emma Sinclair is an anomaly. With a single touch of a stranger, she is catapulted into premonitions of their inevitable death. She doesn't know when or where, but she can feel every bone breaking and every heart exploding until the seizure is over. The people around her are determined to fix her--her Dad, most vigorously--but to Emma, it's a useless battle. For her, death is as common as the stars are in quantity. 

For Zacchaeus, death is just as common, but he happens to be on the other side of the spectrum. Soul collection is his job, his "right" delegated to him after one fateful day one hundred years ago. 

They both drone through the motions of a similar life--Emma's cautious, and Zac's monotonous--but, when their paths intertwine because of a rookie mistake, their worlds are set on a collision course barreling toward disaster. Together, they will suffer through loss and love, while unearthing a plot more sinister than even the Fates themselves could have predicted.

In all honesty while I adore your work I am not a huge fan of the new title. Just my humble opinion.  Based from what I've read so far "The Other Side" might have also been an interesting choice but that's just me :)
