The past isn’t over, it’s an opening. The future isn’t hidden, it’s a trap.
If she ever wants to see him again, she’ll have to take the risk…
Publishers Weekly Starred Review: “Funny, Romantic & Harrowing!”
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.)
This book contains material that may be disturbing to some, and in movie form, would be rated NC-17 for strong language, nudity, sexual situations, and violence (including attempted sexual assault, abduction, intense danger, miscarriage, confinement, a pandemic, religious fanaticism (Christian), government malevolence, and death).
Reader discretion is advised.
Review and Aesthetics
Unfortunately I didn’t click with this whimsical, action-packed novel at all. The time travel aspect seemed interesting but I didn’t make it far enough into the novel to read about it. I don’t know if I’d blame any specific like the writing or the story, maybe it just wasn’t the right time.
Usually I would push through it to see if my feelings change but I was feeling pretty slumpy, and I knew this would just drag me deeper into it, so I didn’t push it. That being said, if the synopsis appeals to you and you’re interested in forming your own opinions, the e-book is free on Amazon through the end of the tour.
I decided to make some aesthetics for Crossing In Time based on what I read and the synopsis. All photos from Pinterest.
