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

From award-winning author D. L. ORTON comes book three in the Between Two Evils series...

Shannon fights to stay alive inside a rogue biodome and discovers something totally unexpected... Peter. Lani is forced into the role of the reluctant heroine but rediscovers her street-kid mojo and sets out to find everything she's lost. Diego receives another dirty sock (and a note) from the poorly aimed fireball express: "The window between universes is closing." If Diego has any hope of getting back to Iz, he must get to the Magic Kingdom and power up the time machine before it's too late. 

What could possibly go wrong?

Bravo, Bravo! This is the 3rd book of the series and it ranks up there with my review of the first book! I loved the constant but not overwhelming action. You really have to pay close attention when dealing with more than one universe where there are the same characters (with different names) playing out a similar situation: trying to reverse the devastation of the world from a horrible virus. Keeps your mind in constant alertness.

After reading the first two books I was a little more relaxed (ha) and able to assimilate the time/space references easier. I have an old brain {!} so most readers will probably take it all in stride but I would caution all...."Read the books in order!" Science fiction is not for the black/white, no grey readers and this throws in more twists than normal.

Continuing the story of Isabel and Diego was the highlight but I really enjoyed the adventure of Shannon when she was left at a "rogue" biodome during a normal excursion gone bad. The only "hanging participle" I have is information on Tego....where and when does he resurface? Haven't quite figured out his significance in this story. Or maybe I missed I said, these stories are not for the overly organized mind. I have enough trouble assimilating the material so I must give Kudos to D.L. Orton for having the amazing brain to write these stories and interweave these tales!

  1. Thanks so much for reading and reviewing, Jeanie! ♥️

    I'm happy to hear you enjoyed Shannon's story—and also happy to hear you want to know more about Tego... The next book is Tego's story, and I'm working to have it out by the end of the year.

    The journey is the reward. Thanks for joining me! ��
