Why would I want to be married to an alien? I should not have applied to TerraMates! The idea was crazy. I'm a young woman, in the prime of my life. But I was desperate. When I landed on another world, his appearance intrigued me. He dripped sexuality and moved like an animal. We have three days together before he sets sail without me. Am I going to escape or submit to my desires?

Nathaniel and Ashlyn were a cute couple. And the idea of Terramates an interesting concept for a series. One drawback to the story was the sheer number of times the author repeated herself, relaying details the reader already knew. This issue was also linked to the author's penchant for telling details that would've served the story well through showing. This continued even to the end with Lace doing a year recap, which wasn't at all the most engaging or fulfilling way to end a story.

When offered a one-way trip to the past, Isabel sacrifices everything for a chance to change the rapidly deteriorating 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 but enraptured 19-year-old to change their 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.

I won this audiobook from a Booklikes giveaway.

Orton weaves an intricate, multi-dimensional tale of heartache, hope, and love. This is a wonderfully crafted and wickedly inventive tale of humanity at the brink and a love that may save the world. Isabelle and Diego are great characters. I liked Isabelle, but I loved Diego. Time and again, he was there for Isabelle, saving and loving her, even when she was being difficult and unreasonable. And while yes, Isabelle did need saving many times she was in no way a damsel-in-distress. Their rocky history yet rich and powerful love transcends time and place, taking the reader on an emotional rollercoaster ride of passion and pain. Orton does both exceedingly well, with a poetic-like prose I found captivating and, at times, heartbreaking.

The narrators, Noah and Erin, brought this engaging novel to life. I listen to a lot of audiobooks and this was, by far, the best of a very big lot. For the narration alone, I recommend this book. But the book can stand on its own.

For Kira Solomon, normal was never an option. Kira's day job is as an antiquities expert, but her true calling is as a Shadowchaser. Trained from youth to be one of the most lethal Chasers in existence, Kira serves the Gilead Commission, dispatching the Fallen who sow discord and chaos. Of course, sometimes Gilead bureaucracy is as much a thorn in her side as anything the Fallen can muster against her. Right now, though, she's got a bigger problem....

The author has the most beautiful and sophisticated way of describe people, places, and things. The world is well detailed and complex. And the reader is dropped in the middle of it all.

If you could sum up Fire, Fury, Faith in three words, what would they be?

Entertaining
Lovely
Heart-warming

What was one of the most memorable moments of Fire, Fury, Faith?

The information the author gave about the brutality of the slave raid. The author didn't dwell on the ugliness of such events, but told just enough so the reader could get a feel for its cruelty and impact on its survivors - Serwa and Issa

Which scene was your favorite?

Serwa 's forgiveness. She was a powerful angel with a good heart. But she wasn't the type of angel that was all goodness and light. There were depths to both main characters. But Serwa was a forgiving character, which endeared her to me.

Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

Issa's efforts at redemption was heartbreaking as much as it was heart-warming to see how much he loved his wife and daughters. He was a true Guardian Angel.

Any additional comments?

I hope the author continues with the second book in the series.
