What would you choose? She had everything but freedom. He had nothing but his loyalty, his wits and his training. She was a prisoner, a disease, not fit for the world, and she didn't know why. But she did know she wasn't allowed to die, she wasn't allowed to live and she wasn’t sane. He was a soldier, a protector, but his foundation will be tested when he must destroy the only light in his dark world. Thrown together, prisoner and keeper, their rebellion will splinter through time, changing the course of history and the fate of the world. Their love will challenge their greatest enemy and immortalize them forever. Loyalty. Freedom. Love. What would you risk? "Let me die." Pain darkened his eyes. "Never."
Im not particulary a fan of .5 books, but OMG was I surprised with this one, this by far is the best one I´ve read ever.
Touching Eternity is book 1.5 on the Touch series, and even though Touching Smoke (Book 1) is aYA read and teh rest of the titles are in that same genre; Touching Eternity is a very adukt book, due to content and dark nature, but is an amazing complement to the series. We know what happened in the past but is noot the same to know it than to experience it through Amalie´s suffering.
WARNING: If you re easily spooked or have a sore spot for subjects such as torture and/or rape among others. This book can be skiped as it can be read as a stand alone. But I really dont recomend you guys doing that as it´s the best inside view of the characters psique you´ll ever get.
Now for the rest of my Review!!!!
In this book we go back in time and learn a few ugly truths about what was life like for Amalie and all the things she had to go through.
This book is amazingly well written, the Author has a terrific way to show you the world everything is set into; you submerge in the story so easily due to the descriptiveness without being sofocated by it.
In one word it was perfect, well accomplished and heart shaterring, that, by the type of story I guess was the main goal.
Amalie is such a lovely character and if you have read Touching Smoke, well you know how things go for her. But still I couldn´t help to cross my fingers and hope.
I knew Garrison had quite a few lost marbles but wow, the extend of it is, overwhelming, I´m still in shock by all the things that man is capable of doing and I do hope that at the end he gets what he deserves.
Isaiah is a strong character, he´s caring and loyal, but that loyalty gets him and Amalie in trouble, Despite everything he has lived through, he still believes and trust the people around him. His love for Amalie and his loyalty to his father his greater assets.
This book had my nerves on edge and my heart crushed more times than not.An amazing book from an Amazing Author, Touching Eternity has to go straight to your TBR list.
I´m going to give it 5+ stars on my blog only 4 books have acomplished that so yeah, this book is among the best i´ve read in 2 years.
