Crossing Time by D.L. Orton (My review)

Hey all!

I'm back, this time with Crossing Time by D.L Orton, Book 1 in the Between Two Evils Series. 



Orton begins the story in a way that got its claws hooked into me right away through a scene that made me jump out of my skin. I won’t tell you everything No spoilers here! You’ll have to get the book for that and then you’ll see what I’m talking about. But I will tell you that it does involve one of the two central characters: The spirited Geneticist Isabel.

In the beginning of the story, Isabel, also known as Iz, is buying a weapon, specifically a handgun. At the time, I didn’t even have the full details on why yet, but just the gusto and dialogue between her and the seller made me want to read on and learn more. 

Once I did, I found that this was no ordinary, run-of-the-mill situation for which she needed a gun but rather a sort of post-Armageddon like state.

During the course of the story, you will also get to know Diego, Isabel’s lover, who happens to be dead.

Isabel and Diego are  star-crossed lovers. Both are from different worlds and timelines, with Isabel coming from the future to Diego, younger and very much alive. 

At first, I wasn’t sure how that would work. But Orton worked the various time and space continuums without clich√© or bumps in the road. Even the writing concerning Diego’s and Isabel’s meeting is seamless and believable.

Add the backdrop of life as we know it coming to an end and a deadly virus and you’ve got a dystopian, scientific, lovestory thriller that will not only warm your heart but will chill your blood in all the right places.

5 out of 5 all the way! Already set to get book 2
