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 dark

I have been sitting for days trying to get this story out of my mind and get this review written but to no avail. This to me is the sign of an amazing story teller/author. This tale has stuck with me like glue.

I decided that I would start my review with a warning. This book is not for the faint hearted as mentioned in the synopsis. Things aren't rainbows and butterfly's and this book deals with so many things so horrid we would rather live under a rock than know about. There were times I wasn't

When I first opened the book, right away I am informed it is for mature audience only. With a warning not recommended to those under 18 due to violence, drugs, abuse and suicide. (Which is only a tiny example of what this book is about.) The Author does not condone it, it’s just telling a story of how it all began in her book of "Touching Smoke". So please if you have had experiences related to any of the above or if you are sensitive to manners as such, DO NOT READ THIS BOOK! You will only disc ...more

It's not often that I am left breathless after reading a book, but I'm still trying to recover after reading Touching Eternity. Words cannot express how fantastic this book is, but I will try my best...

I was so excited to read the story of Amalie and Isaiah, characters I was introduced to in Touching Smoke. Their story is heartbreaking.

The chemistry and love between Amalie and Isaiah developed beautifully. Their feelings were built on friendship and acceptance, blossoming into something more de

Touching Eternity was an out of the ball park home run in my opinion! Airicka Phoenix has an amazing way with words to pull you in as a reader. I think book 1.5 is just what this series ordered. In Touching Smoke Fallon was the main focus but with a back playing role being taken by these dreams of a woman whom she didn't know but was always the same. Eventually Fallon put an name and a face to the woman who was Amalie. Touching Eternity is Amalies story told from hers and Isaiahs point of views ...more

“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, we

Before I say anything else, I have to make this very clear: This book is NOT for anyone who is faint of heart, has been affected by torture of any kind, or is looking for a happy ending.
Touching Eternity is a sad tale of a lonely girl who lives through hell in many ways. This novel is heart breaking, tear jerking, terrifying in some places, and leaves the reader breathless.
Airicka weaves words so believable you can’t help but feel each scene happening. And in a story like this, it makes those

Touching Eternity is book 1.5 in the Touch Series by the amazing Airicka Phoenix. It tells the story of the mysterious Amalie and Isaiah from Book 1 Touching Smoke. When Isaiah comes home after school he is forced to face his demons, forced to face her. Amalie has had a hard year with Isaiah gone and the voices never stopping. Her father thinks she is crazy and as a doctor he has made it his life’s purpose to cure her of her illness using whatever barbaric means necessary. Isaiah sees the hurt t ...more

Wow! Another amazingly written novel by Airicka Phoenix. Surgical always seems to amaze me, her work is magnificent. The creativity and detail she puts into her stories is always fascinating. Idly her words of Amelia and Isaiah cone alive as I was reading. I felt my emotions running, I cried, I was angry, and I even felt scared for the characters of what was about to happen at each turn of the page. There was never a dull moment, I was captivated by Touching Eternity. Airicka truly out did herse ...more

I don't think 5 stars is nearly enough for this book. For any of Airicka's writing actually. I've said it before and I'll say it again, Airicka Phoenix is truly talented. She has a way with words like no other I've ever read before. She paints such a perfectly vivid picture in your mind it's hard not to see every single detail as though it's on a big screen in front of your eyes. Her words are

Airicka makes you use every emotion possible and then some with Touching Smoke.

This was definitely a book that pissed you off, made you cry and jump from one side to the other in who to believe,love and hate.

Was Terrell really trying to help his daughter? Did he kill his wife, was he mad or a true genius.
Isaiah a boy taken in when he had no one believed so in the man who gave him his life back. Loyalty of that little boy as he grew into a man. His best friend, the only friend, became the love

Wow is all I can think of to say after finishing this book. Airicka Phoenix did an amazing job with this book. This book drew me in from the start and took me on an emotional roller coaster. I fell in love with Amelia and Isiah and hated Garrison. I was not sure of Derrick to begin with but I am glad he turned out to have a good heart for all that got him. I really had hoped for a different ending but we will see how the story progresses from here. I can no

When I first started reading this book, I wasn't sure how it was going to be, but the more I kept reading, I noticed that I didn't want to put it down for a second. I wanted to keep reading more and more.
The story is amazing, so many twists. A story where true love can make you do things you never imagined, Isaiah proved it time and time again. One of my new favorite books, I liked it so much, I definetly will enjoy reading it over again, thank you...
Have you ever read a book and known the ending to it?
Have you ever wished that you were wrong?
I wish that I was wrong.
I wish that I could change the past and rewrite the future.
I also wish that I could escape with the Doctor and travel through Space and Time but that probably won't happen in the next week, I am still crossing my fingers for next week though ;)

As I was reading Touching Smoke there were bits that described some of what Fallon and Isaiah had been through, their history together and where it all began. I say touch because it was nothing like what I experienced reading this book. Touching Eternity is amazing, it goes back and gives us readers the ultimate, descriptive story about the beginning. The back story I should say. It touches on all the why's of Amalie and Isaiah past and history together.

The story is very detailed, descriptive, e

Wow, how to begin. In this prequel to The book, Touching Smoke, We get to see how Isaiah and Amalie came to be. Their history, their past, their lives. It's brutal and beautiful at the same time. Amalie's mother was special and so is Amalie, unfortunately Amalie's father sees her gift as a mental illness and is consumed with finding a way to make it disappear. Isaiah is an orphan boy that her father picked out of the gutter as a child, brought home, and raised. Isaiah is completely loyal to Garr ...more

I was given this story by the author in exchange for my honest review.
As I started to read her story, I was thrown into a world of insanity. Amalie, the little girl that is crazy, just like her mom. As I continued to read, I felt many emotions toward the characters. I wanted to stab her father with a needle. The love of her life left her. The tutor got what he deserved. Most of all, I felt so sad for Amalie. Her whole world was turned upside down when she saw the horrid that was happening to he

I need like 5 more stars to add to my rating....

Touching Smoke was one of the best books that I've read in a long time. So, to hold me over until Touching Fire to continue Fallon and Isaiah's story, I had to read Touching Eternity. To get the back story of Amalie and Isaiah, to hopefully understand Garrison's crazy. And you know what....I've never been touched in such a way by a book. I mean it.

Ok. I'm gonna write this quick. Just like pulling a bandaid. I just finished this wonderfully worded book. So full of emotion and depth. I already knew what was going to happen from reading Touching Smoke but knowing did not prepare me for the emotional roller coaster waiting for me in this book. Airicka Phoenix has a way with words that drew me in so deadly that I am totally at a loss right now. The love Isaiah and Amalie had was so strong no torture or cruelty could stop.

I really wanted to read this to find out the background of Garrison, Isaiah and see what made all the characters tick in Touching Smoke. I have to be honest, that some of the stuff that happens in the book made is so difficult for me to read, that I had to go for a few days before even being able to pick it up again. (Not that it wasn't on my mind.) Now, I need to explain that it's not horribly sick or twisted, there's no horrible, ghastly

I can completely understand why this novella is for anyone 18 years and over due to the issues raised! For a novella this book was actually very long! I think that Touching Eternity was a perfect addition to the Touch Series and I loved that you got to see what some of the characters were like before the events of Touching Smoke! The plot of this novella was very sad! I nearly cried at several scenes! The issues raised in this book for me where pretty difficult to read but I felt that they were ...more

I had no idea this book could be this heart braking and I seriously wouldn’t have read it if I had known. Basically I don’t read heart-breaking books because I am a romantic at heart and because I tear up too easily and then I remain depressed for weeks after the book...This book was a mistake....I don’t even know how to rate it... ...more

Touching Eternity~

Let me start by saying, that I loved this book too! The Touch Series has landed on "My Fav Series" shelf and with good reason.

For those of you who have read Touching Smoke, You kind of know what you ared geatting into before you start to read this. It is much darker than the Touching Smoke.

In Touching Eternity we travel back to Amalie and her life. Even though I knew how her story would end, I still had a hard time putting down the book. You can't help but love Amalie.

Another winner from author Airicka Phoenix.

After reading Touching Smoke, the debut novel in the Touch Series, I had high hopes for this story and Airicka did not disappoint. This is a must read for fans of the series!

In this book, we peek back in time, watching as Isaac and Amalie struggle to survive manipulation and torture at the hands of the evil Mr. Garrison. Airicka does an amazing job of sucking you into the story until your stomach will knot and your muscles will clench with tension. Be f

Okay, you don't have to read Touching Smoke first to understand this book, but I would really recommend that you do.

I read Touching Smoke first and sort of thought this one was the 'sequel' and boy was I wrong- and right. Sort of.

I already loved Airicka's writing but now I love how she can tie two different stories in the same world together.

I personally don't go over the plot, I think readers should get to read it for themselves. But I will say this book was well written, the characters were ge

4.5 out of 5 I really enjoyed this book and the background it gave with Amalie and Isaiah. It really gave me a lot of insight into the characters from Touching Smoke. My only problem with it was the abrupt ending. Even though I think I understood what happened, I would have liked some more detail. Given the plot line in the previous book I assume this is the end of Amalie and Isaiah's story so I would've liked some more detail as to what happened. However, I am really looking forward to the next ...more
