LOVE GROWS EVEN IN THE STRANGEST PLACES. When Nate Esposito dies in a diving accident, he realizes he isn't ready to leave everything behind, including his girlfriend and soulmate Samantha. He falls into an underworld prison where the only way out is through an eccentric reaper named Septimus Rex. As head reaper, Septimus leads an army of supernatural Crows tasked with the cold deportation of overstaying spirits from the human realm. But the fates smile on Nate because the head reaper has problems of his own. He has fallen in love with a mortal girl; an abhorrent sign of weakness that, if discovered by the Crows, will start a power struggle in hell. With Nate's help, Septimus must now attempt to confess his feelings to the girl of his dreams so he can go back to being devoid of human sentiment. Nate is reincarnated as a kitsune reaper and hatches an escape plan to the surface world. But he finds that things in the underworld are not what they seem and Septimus' problems run deeper, somehow even linked to Nate's own mysterious past. "Atropos In Love" offers a fresh view of a taboo. It shows a human side to Death and proves that love defies time. It's both a love story and a fantasy, with elements of human drama. It combines all the ingredients of an enduring story: noble love, loyal friendship, and hope against all logic.
