Blurb: 

Seth finds himself alone at an abandoned train station, with no idea what happened, or how he got there. He boards a train, only to discover it’s a special express transporting the recently deceased to their final destination. The conductor tells him he’s having a near-death experience. Seth wonders if it has something to do with his violent boyfriend, but that doesn't matter. All that matters is getting the hell off the train before he actually dies. But when he spots his best friend and secret crush among the traveling dead, the urge to leave fades…

  Excerpt:

For a minute, they sat in silence with only the rumbling of the train disturbing the quiet. When it became apparent that Seth wasn’t going to start speaking, Carter asked, “Still want to go on that road trip?” “Not without you.” “Mhm… If we could go together?” It wasn’t possible, of course, but Carter wasn’t interested in reality right now. One reason he hadn’t told Seth he was dying was because he’d enjoyed making all those unrealistic plans, after all, and he still did. “I would go anywhere with you.” “Yeah?” Carter let go of Seth’s neck and tightened his grip around his shoulder. “Where would you like to go first?” “Seattle.” “Why there?” Seth looked at him with that certain shine in his eyes he got when he talked about technology and space and all that. “The Science Fiction Museum and Hall of Fame,” he said, predictably. “God, you are such a geek.” “Geeks rule the world.” “Yeah? I don’t know about that.” “It’s true, though! We created the Internet and launched mankind into space. What did zombie fanatics ever do?” “Uh… we make good movies?” Seth scoffed. “We have Star Wars and Star Trek and—” “Aren’t those the same thing?” “Oh no, you didn’t!” Carter laughed. He’d rarely seen Seth look so offended. But whatever it was Seth had been worrying about earlier, he wasn’t thinking about it now, and that was a win.

  Meet the author: 
 Ana writes m/m romance and erotica. Her interest in hot guy-on-guy action was first sparked by reading scandalous Japanese mangas. A dirty secret she couldn’t resist. In a long bout of insanity – also known as her life — she decided to learn the language and escape to the land of sushi, sumo, and yaoi. She’s since moved back to Europe to be with the love of her life – delicious European chocolate. Now she resides in the sunny part of Germany where she fills her days chasing her dreams and writing about men in complicated relationships. Her family believes she’s writing “erotic manga stories.” She’s pleased they got the erotic part right, at least.

Review:
I felt like this book was The Polar Express for the dead/dying. 
It was such an inventive way to look at passing into the after life.
 To ensure that one can pass on with no regrets. 

Carter obviously has regrets.
 One being Seth.
 He never got to tell him how he really felt and never mentioned to him that he was dying. 
Seth takes the news of his friend very hard, and in his current situation tries and takes his own life. 
The "conductor" feels that bringing Seth on the train will help both Seth and Carter with moving on, in both life and death. 
Of course, he himself has a motive. 

I thought it was a short, beautiful read about second chances and finding yourself again and turning life around.
 The ending was just perfect, one of the most uplifting HEA's I've read in awhile. 
It has that True Love until the end feel (kind of like Always, but not really ;) )

I give it 4*
