Crossing in Time (Between Two Evils #1)
D.L. Orton, author

Adult; Sci-Fi/Fantasy/Horror; (Market)

 

Remember how it feels to Fall in Love?

  • Race against the clock through a dystopian nightmare.
  • Climb naked into an untested time machine (carrying only a seashell and a promise).
  • Wake up twenty years younger on a tropical beach, buck naked and mortally wounded, with your heart in your throat. 

This is a journey of passion, loss, and redemption that will have your pulse galloping and your palms sweating, make you laugh out loud through your tears, and leave you flush with the sublime pleasure of being in the arms of the one you love.

If someone took everything you live for, how far would you go to get it back?

Assessment:

Isabel Sanborn travels across time to help save mankind from a deadly virus and find her true love, Diego Nadales. With the possibility of dying, she must give her true love up to her younger self. Alternating perspectives between three characters, this tricky, time travel plot is successfully executed and will leave readers wanting more. The author has woven together facets of science fiction in a dystopian setting with vivid imagery.

Reviews
Launching the Between Two Evils series, Orton constructs a delightfully fun time-travel adventure that spans years and universes. Isabel is facing the consequences of her self-destructive behavior: she’s freshly divorced and on the edge of losing her life’s work. Things look up when she’s reunited with her long-ago love Diego, but their renewed relationship begins with and is punctuated by disasters. Physics professor Matt is conscripted to unravel the mystery of an impossible object that is causing the perils threatening the lovers. Matt and his team use technology sent from the future to determine that the key to saving the world is personal rather than global: it depends, somehow, on the enduring love between Diego and Isabel. Orton has carefully balanced existential peril on the micro and macro scales, slowly raising the stakes until a fever pitch is achieved. What at first seems silly or pointless becomes vital as the nature of causality is revealed. Engaging, funny, romantic, and harrowing, this promising series opener will leave readers satisfied by its unexpected yet earned conclusion, and curious about what comes next. (BookLife)

"Edgy, literary, pithy. I like this book. It’s charming and punchy and engaging. The characters seem well conceived and refreshingly naughty. D. L. Orton has great finesse when it comes to storytelling."

Grady Harp, Amazon Hall of Fame Top 100 Reviewer & Vine Voice

"This is a wild and totally enjoyable ride [...] packed with humor and parody and absurdity and on-fire imagination. As a debut novel it is astonishingly fine."

John J. Staughton, Editor of “Sheriff Nottingham” eLit Magazine

"This book holds WAY more than it appears to. I was satisfied, exhausted, inspired, and blown away."

Literary Picks
