Crossing In Time by D L. Orton read book description online

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 doomed present—and see her murdered lover one last time. When she arrives 20 years in the past, buck naked and mortally wounded, she has 24 hours to convince a stunned 19-year-old guy to change his 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 genre-defying adventure is about falling madly in love when one is too cynical for such things, letting go of pessimism when it's the last lifejacket 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 fall in love guide for diehard singles, and a laugh out loud tragedy with a hopeful twist. Love conquers all. (Unfortunately, it's not going to be enough.)

Conclusion: We hope you will enjoy this book. We rated it with 5 stars from 5.

  • Makes you believe in true love and time travel

    By Purkhi
    This story revolves around the concept of time travel. At first it is more of a general fiction piece, but the elements of science fiction and romance come into play and create an interesting story. Isabel and Diego loved each other, but they had a fallout in their relationship that led to drama in Isabel's life. And then there is an attack in Denver. Though the lovers reunite, it does not end there. There comes a point that there is nothing more to live for, and they take part in a high risk project that could destroy them. The love story makes readers want to believe that love is the most powerful thing in the world. The science fiction element of time travel and quantum physics remind us how delicate the process is and how uncertain it is. I loved the couple and their strength in times of fighting for their love and fighting for their life as the end off kind becomes more likely. It's a well-written book and worth the time to read it.
  • A Love that Knows No Bounds

    By Rhoron74
    Crossing in Time is a stirring science fiction story of love that knows no bounds. It is filled with doomsday possibilities and a rich physics background of time travel, black holes, and alternate universes. At first it seems like a love story in which old love reunites, but with strange occurrences like a major disaster in Colorado and nuclear fallouts. The government has a plan, and it requires the help of Diego and Isabel. When one dies in this universe, can the other save the world with a trip 20 years in the past? It tugs at emotions as readers ponder our future and a martial law civilization around the globe. Not only does one feel for the love bond between the two, but also the feelings of despair in the secondary characters. The plot is strong and the characters are well developed. It does not answer all of the questions that have been raised, but it does create interest in another book in the series.
  • Fun story with romance and science fiction

    By cm0919
    Crossing Time is the first book in D.L. Orton's series. Is is a thrilling, page-turning novel with romance, post-apocalyptic sci-fi themes, and steamy erotic scenes. The chapters' names, titles, and illustrations also add a nice touch to the story.
  • Edgy, Literary, Pithy. I was blown away.

    By kelohedeb
    "Edgy, literary, pithy. I like this book. It’s charming and punchy and engaging. The characters seem well conceived and refreshingly naughty. D. L. Orton has great finesse when it comes to storytelling." E.M. Davis, Senior Editor @ via Ingram "This is a wild and totally enjoyable ride [...] packed with humor and parody and absurdity and on-fire imagination. As a debut novel it is astonishingly fine.” 
Grady Harp, Amazon Hall of Fame Top 100 Reviewer & Vine Voice "The book blends strong characters, sci-fi adventure, & romance to create an exciting, original story that could easily be imagined on the big screen…” Cat Jones, Amazon Top 500 Reviewer "It’s clever, absolutely hilarious, full of epic references to pop culture and colored with a vast collection of puns that are just to die for.

  • I greatly enjoyed this book. It is fast paced -- a page-turner.

    By Baseball Fan
    I greatly enjoyed this book. It is fast paced -- a page-turner. I couldn't wait to get to the end to see what would happen. The author includes a preview chapter of the next book in the series -- I can't wait to read it. Every chapter has a very witty title and a beautiful illustration to go with it. I loved the puns throughout the character's conversations and appreciated their references to other literary works (Casablanca, Hitchhiker's, and lots of others). The dialog was very well written. The story itself keeps you on your toes, wondering what is coming next and how the author will resolve the issues. Literally one of those books where I didn’t want it to finish. I make myself not finish it in one sitting so I could enjoy it for longer :-). Recommended!
  • Outstanding dystopian sci-fi that will pull you into the story right from the start

    By JazzMcGee
    "Crossing in Time" blends strong characters, sci-fi adventure, and romance to create an exciting, original story that could easily be imagined on the big screen. Orton delivers complex characters with many layers to their personalities. In presenting the story from multiple first person POV it allows you to sink into each character's experiences and emotions as well as visualize their dystopian world as they see it. Ordinarily I'm not a huge fan of time hopping tales. Too often they get jumbled and confusing and leave me annoyed. However Orton makes it work. Diego and Matt build a time machine with the idea to go back and fix the things that led to the ruined world they know now. The primary focus isn't on the time travel aspect though, but on the love between scientists Isabel and Diego. This is a love that transverses time, and may hold the key to the world's salvation. The romance here leans strongly to the erotic. I thought they were well done and enjoyed reading them, though readers who prefer romance be limited to chaste kisses will doubtless be shocked at the steamier scenes. As the first book of a series, it gets off to a great start and hints at plenty of excitement and intrigue to come in the next book. The writing flows beautifully and it took no time at all to get lost in the story. I'm definitely looking forward to the next book.
