The Second in the Smoke series. This one goes a little darker, it still maintains the lighter playful tone, but the supernatural creepy it features is-- extra creepy.

Huff plays with Time and Ghosts and actually takes a trope you see more often in science fiction and makes it work. Or rather, it feels more like the science fiction version than the fantasy version. It's creepy, without an over abundance of gore (though there is some!) and the ultimate cause wasn't easily guessed by me.

Through it all, the relationship between Tony and Lee moves apace. The structure is familiar to anyone who reads fanfiction, though I am delighted that it doesn't move too fast and that the pace of it really fits with Lee's own struggle.
