Book Review: Crossing in Time (Between Two Evils Book 1) by D. L. Orton

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

When offered a one-way trip to the past, Iz sacrifices everything for a chance to change her dystopian future—and see her murdered lover one last time. 

After a perilous journey through a black hole, she wakes up on a tropical beach, buck naked and mortally wounded—but twenty years younger! With only hours to live, she must convince an enraptured but skeptical twenty-something guy to fix their future relationship and thereby save the planet (no one is quite sure why.)

But it's easier said than done, as success means losing him to a brainy, smart-mouthed bombshell (her younger self), and that's a heartbreaker, save the world or not.

Across the infinite expanse of space and time, love endures...

(Unfortunately, it’s not going to be enough.)

FALL INTO THIS EDGY, action-packed, darkly comedic, dystopian love story, and be prepared to encounter a finicky time machine, a mysterious seashell, and a very clever dog (some sex, some swearing, some violence, but no vampires and absolutely no ditzes.)

Wow! I just added a new (to me) author to my "favorites" list!

Spellbinding story of love across time and universes. Science fiction love story, great characters, well developed with enough suspense to embrace multiple genres. Add in the puppies and kitten and I'm already "all in".

Isabel and Diego meet by chance after many years and many heartbreaks since their breakup. Instant attraction again leads them to rekindling that relationship but dire predictions for eradication of earth's populations has them at the forefront of finding a solution. Would you consider traveling back in time to save your love and the world? Even knowing it is probably a one way trip? A doomsday tale that will have you riveted to the pages.

Superb creative writing by the author. The Sci-fi content is as drawing as the love story. I have already picked up the next installment and just chomping at the bit to get started!

Getting 5 "biodomed" sheep!
