After his first death, Shinnosuke Yamagami became a psychopomp, a creature meant to help the deceased pass on to the Nether, the land of the dead.

A great read for small time. I really liked the narrative style and would definetly read more (and hope) if it will become a series.

I'm Miodrag Kovachevic (or Kovačević if you prefer fancy letters). I'm a writer and game designer and hail from the far away and mystic land of Serbia, where people worship bread and rakiya (while the outside world confuses us with Siberia). Specifically, I'm from a small town called Zajechar, near the Bulgarian border.

Officially, I'm a philologist and I'm practically fluent in English, Germ
