Dead Time

D.L. Orton

Between Two Evils
Sci-Fi Romance
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 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 fix the time machine before it’s too late. What could possibly go wrong?

Welcome back everyone, it’s double trouble today! I bet you weren’t expecting a second review today!

Well I jumped into this as soon as I finished the second book, Lost Time so figured I could bring it to you at the same time as well since I technically forgot to set up Lost Time for you last week. Whoops!

We get another book where we don’t see Isabel at all. So I feel like my theory is holding true, don’t worry, I won’t ruin it for you! And some things are consistent with the previous books which really intrigues me!

Since you’ve figured out by now from the blurbs that we’re time travelling, we’re also universe travelling! Making the similarities and differences a really interesting point to consider and track. Which points are so key to the whole problem that they’re the same regardless, and which are the points that change whether they survive or not?

D.L. Orton suggested I’d be unhappy with the ending because of a cliffhanger, and yet this felt like it had a really smooth ending. The last book felt like it ended mid-paragraph. Whereas this had a natural ending and I can picture in my mind how the next book will pick up.

Am I going to be right? Who knows!

Am I looking forward to the next book? You bet cha! Can’t wait for her to finish writing it so I can bring you a review for it!

Thank you for reading and I hope you enjoyed this review; on Monday I’ll be reviewing The Secret Letters by Taryn Leigh.

    Whew. I’m very glad to hear that you felt the ending was earned (even if it’s a bit of a cliffhanger). 😅
