After the Fischer inception, Eames goes back to work as an extractor, and Arthur joins his team. Due to circumstances involving a guy who may or may not be from Greenland, pop astrology, someone’s broken limb, hormones, and convenience, they end up learning that love is what starts down below (and makes its way up your spine).
Why You Should Read This:
The character work is outstanding, the plot is tight, the pace is brisk, and the sex is hot. It melds beautifully with the canon of the movie both in thought and deed. The dream sequence is riveting and Eames is adorable when he realizes that he’s been in love with Arthur all along.
