Before Fallon was created to destroy. Before love became the ultimate weapon of destruction. There was Amalie and the horror that started a revolution that tore the fabric of humanity, of everything standing in the balance between power, hope and survival.Amalie has one wish, one gnawing desire - she wants to die. She wants to leave this world behind with its pain and darkness. She wants to finally breathe. But Amalie is a prisoner, a disease, not fit for life. She is unwanted, unnatural. She is defective, something useless and broken. Her own mother hadn't wanted her. Her father hated her. The world shunned her and the only person she had ever loved, truly and with all her heart and soul, couldn't stand the sight of her, couldn't stand the thought of ever being with her. She repulsed him. Her insanity disgusted him. He'd forgotten her. He'd left her behind, deserted and abandoned her to a madman hell bent on crushing her, stealing her soul and shattering her will. But what if she's finally given hope? A reason to live? Can Amalie finally accept the hand offering so much for so little in return? Can she love again when she has nothing left to give? Can she finally be free?****************************************************************WARNING: Due to sensitive matters portrayed throughout the novel, Touching Eternity (Touch Series, book 1.5) is rated 18+ (Adult).… (més)

“Touching Eternity (Touch, Book 1.5)” by Airicka Phoenix

I received this book from the author in exchange for an honest review.

This adult book was awesome! I loved it so much, and it was definitely on a completely new level from “Touching Smoke (Touch, Book 1).” The first book of the Touch series was a Young Adult novel, but this book, “Touching Eternity (Touch, Book 1.5)” was an adult story because of the subject matter. The things that happened, and the emotions that came with each incident, were adult content. I would give this book by Airicka Phoenix 5 STARS overall, because it sucked me in and got me involved from the beginning to the end.

You can simply read the synopsis of this book to learn what it is about. However, I will briefly describe a little of the story. This book takes place BEFORE Fallon’s story; even though Fallon’s story was book one. Amalie can see and speak with dead people, and because of this, her father believes she is defective. If you read the first book, “Touching Smoke,” you will remember that Garrison is Amalie’s father…and also a mad scientist. He has this research that he does that he believes will change the world. Well, it certainly changed Amalie’s world, that’s for sure – it changes her life for the worse. Poor Amalie is a helpless victim of her father’s cruel and unorthodox experiments and research. She is a prisoner in her own home and has to endure endless torture by the person that is supposed to protect her. Her only solace from all the abuse, and I mean EVERY kind of abuse, is her time with Isaiah. They were each other’s only friends…until they became more than friends. As you can guess, her father ruined that as well. Read “Touching Eternity” to learn Amalie and Isaiah’s story: the good times, the terrible times, and if it was possible to ever bring the good times back before it was too late for good.

Amalie was just an innocent little girl. She never did anything wrong and certainly never deserved to suffer from all the horrible things that happened to her. The anguish that poured off Amalie was so sad, and I felt so bad for her. I love when I get that connected to a character, and I definitely felt for her. I felt sad with what Amalie had to endure throughout her life, and I just wanted to save her when she became so terrified. The poor girl was dealt a bad hand in life and I wish that I had the power to change that for her. However, when Amalie smiled, the sky lit up! She is such a beautiful girl with her auburn hair and blue eyes and she should have spent her whole life happy and smiling all the time. Unfortunately, that was not always the case and she instead lived her life being terrified and hurt most of the time. The only time she was happy, was when she was with Isaiah. When Isaiah was not there, the torture was that much worse because she did not have him there to help take the pain away.

I fell in love with Isaiah in the first installment of the Touch series. He was a sexy, strong, and brave man that loved Fallon so much. “Touching Eternity” showed us a completely different side of Isaiah. He was still sexy, strong, and brave, but we met a different Isaiah this time. Of course, it was the same person but we were able to see who he was from the time he was a little boy. We learned more of his history, and I really liked that fact. Also, instead of reading about Isaiah and Fallon’s relationship…we read about Isaiah and Amalie’s relationship. I loved reading about their happy times together and hated to read about their bad times. I wanted them to have a happily ever after no matter what. I was routing for them throughout the whole story. Unfortunately for Isaiah, he was almost brainwashed when it came to Garrison. Garrison gave him everything in life, and saved him from the streets at just eight years old. He convinced Isaiah that he was helping Amalie because she was sick. Isaiah never really knew the torment that Amalie underwent, he thought that everything Garrison did was in Amalie’s best interest…plus he never was there when Amalie was tortured. Isaiah truly loved Amalie, and even if it hurt himself, he wanted to make sure that Amalie was okay and he really did have her best interest in his heart.

WOW! Just wow! “Touching Eternity” packed it on with the emotions! Oh man, did it have it all! I just enjoyed this book so much while reading it and it really made me feel. I loved Amalie and Isaiah! They were just fabulous and elicited so many reactions from me. I felt happy, sad, angry, shocked, and more. It was a whirlwind of feelings, and it was great! I would recommend “Touching Eternity” to people that read “Touching Smoke,” but keep in mind that this book is Adult…not YA. Also, I think this 5 STAR book will be great for readers that are looking for a book that leaves an impression…or if you are just looking for a great book! Check out Airicka Phoenix, and add her books to your To Be Read list. I will definitely continue to read this author’s work!
