Acting as relationship counselor for Life and Death was not in my job description. Then, I got sent back in time to fix the problems before their relationship fractured apart…
My name is Cal Thorpe, and I work for Death as his marketing agent. Mediating between Death and Life’s marriage was never in my job description. I did my best until we met up with Death’s cousin, Time, at the theatre. Time decided I should try and fix the problems between Life and Death before they started, so he sent me backwards.
I ended up in Florence in 1494, right in the middle of the Renaissance. And one of the first people I met while there? Niccolo Machiavelli.
Add in a half-giantess named Charlotte, her time travelling journalist companion, and the fact that Death lost my soul and nothing about that trip began as I expected. Still, I had a job to do, and if I ever wanted to get back to the future, I needed to fix the problem before it even started.
Things, naturally, went downhill from there.
