From the Author
Crossing In Time, the first book in the Between Two Evils series, is an action-packed work of cross-genre fiction (because if I said it's non-fiction you wouldn't believe me. See how difficult this is going to be?)
Think The Outlander meets Men Are From Mars in the Andromeda Strain (with a healthy dose of Dirty Dancing).

The writing style is smooth and transitions from character to character without any hitches. This is even more noteworthy when you consider that this book is written by two authors. I’ve seen books by two really well-known authors who couldn’t pull this off, so Kudos to the authors for making us truly believe that the world is ending of one thing only to pull it out from under us again and again in a sort of “gotcha” moment. I hope you pick this book up because I don’t think you will be sorry you did!
My copy came from Net Galley. My thoughts and opinions are my own. This review is left of my own free volition.
Watch out, now, DL Orton has come on the scene and in her first novel (her brain cells must be tuned to humor at all times) she bolts impressively both into an action piece and into one zany style of creating bizarre situations. Time travel? Fantasy? It is difficult to label the contents, but simply reading the Prologue gives a strong idea that we're dealing with a uniquely gifted mind: (A few years from now) The chubby gun trader shifts his weight and looks up at me, one eye squeezed shut. "What sort of firearm you lookin' to purchase, ma'am?" He's enthroned on a maroon chintz armchair in front of a burned-out Walmart. "Handgun," I say. "Something easy to aim and shoot." Behind me, a handful of men mill about a few meager stalls. I can feel their stares pecking against my back, an unarmed woman traveling alone. I force down a flood of disturbing memories and focus on the task at hand: protecting myself in a world gone all to hell. "You come to the right place, little lady." He glances down at my hiking boots and then drags his gaze up my torso, his top lip curling. "I got a Walther P-22 I might be willin' to trade." I've never heard of Walther, and I have no idea what a P-22 is-- for all I know, it could be a water pistol. I stand there staring at him, unable to get my brain to engage.....I trudge back across the decaying blacktop and up the old highway, periodically glancing back to make sure no one is following me. As soon as the Walmart is out of sight, I vomit all over my gore-spattered boots. Oh my god, Diego, what have we done?`
This is a wild and totally enjoyable ride, and the spacey synopsis is best worded by the author: `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, Isabel sacrifices everything for a chance to change the rapidly deteriorating present--and see her murdered lover one last time. When she arrives twenty years in the past, buck-naked and mortally wounded, she has 24 hours to convince a stunned but enraptured nineteen-year-old to change their future. Definitely easier said than done, as success means losing him to a brainy, smart-mouthed bombshell (her younger self), and that's a heart breaker, save the world or not. This offbeat tale is about falling madly in love when one is too cynical for such things, letting go of pessimism when it's the last life jacket on a sinking ship, and racing against the clock when one doesn't have the proper footwear. It's a coming-of-age story for old fogeys, a how-to-make-love guide for diehard celibates, and a laugh-out-loud tragedy with a hopeful twist.'
Were it not written so extremely well, this book could be mistaken for a standup comedienne routine - that is how packed with humor and parody and absurdity and on-fire imagination this book is. As a debut novel it is astonishingly fine and can only make us hope the next episode will be coming down the line soon. Brava! Grady Harp, June 15
Synopsis: From the back cover: “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.)”
