Sequel to "Life Starts Now" in my Raven series.
Ken is still struggling with his decision during the Jigokillers. When things get ugly, and Galactor reveals a terrifying competence, he's determined not to make the same mistake twice. As a result, Joe is left behind to lead the team and figure out Ken's cryptic goodbye, while Ken is trapped in his own personal hell.
The next story in this series is "Never Too Late."
