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 love, loss, and redemption that will make your pulse gallop and your palms sweat, have you laughing out loud through your tears, and leave you flush with the sublime pleasure of falling in love.
Amazing! I’m so embarrassed that it took me this much to finish it. I swear that it wasn’t because of the story, college sucks! It was such an engaging story, impossible to stop reading it. I really want to continue this series because I can guarantee you that it was worthy. Even with that f***ing cliff hanger at the end, typical of every first book in a series.
It’s not the typical dystopian story and it’s not the typical sci-fi one, it was a very well-done mix between those two genres. You have romance but not tacky or chessy. Iz is a strong independent woman who can easily kick ass and survive by herself while Diego is extremely meaningful to the story and an extraordinary human being. What I truly enjoyed about this story is the fact that Iz is not a damsel in distress that needs her man to lead her and guide her to survival. Hell no! It might be the other way around...Another thing that I really adore about this story is that it’s told by many characters and not only by Iz, that gives the book a variety of points of view that makes it richer.
D.L. Orton is indeed an amazing writer! I will for sure try to continue reading this series.
