If you hated DeAnn in Chosen (or Olivia), by the end of Torn you'll love them both. There's plenty to love and hate in Torn. I expect you'll love Kitsa, Rosebell and Edigold but hate the KEW mission agents and Omony with a passion. This is an action packed story, vividly told - and the fight scenes make me wonder if the author herself has done some fight training! But despite the action, despite the fact that Torn opens with tension that escalates and escalates, despite the fact that every escap ...more

The second book in the Cassandra Trilogy #1, Torn is exactly as the title describes. You become torn about ethics and morality. O.M Faure goes deeper than in Chosen to highlight the possibilities of what is to come.

In Torn, you start to get the flesh and bones of Olivia and DeAnn, your relationship with both characters change and you start to see that they really aren't what you expected from the first book. DeAnn especially has a huge amount of growth throughout this book.

A fantastic adventure

This author has woven a gripping adventure story that takes pace 60 years in the future with two very different women time travelers from the early 21st century. There was an ove-powering feeling of despondency and guilt while reading about the unsurvivable conditions in sub-Sahara Africa might be in the future. The author describes these conditions with amazingly believable prose. If you like stories with a strong female lead who uses her intelligence to overcome adversity,

Gripping narrative, future alert! Opens your mind to what could and probably will happen, graphic and sometimes alarming, very thought provoking but unfortunately possibly inevertable!

4.5 stars. Exciting, educational, frightening. Population explosion, water shortagea, corruption. This is real. I will have to get the third book.

It's all singing all dancing, globetrotting, time-travelling thriller. It's an absolute jaw dropping master piece. Torn is a must read. Highly recommended A 5 🌟 read.

A compassionate and engaging portent of a very plausible near future. This is the second book in the trilogy, with the main characters Olivia and Deann carrying the plot through some gut-wrenching scenes, with danger, sorrow, futility, occasional joy, humour and lots of love, lacing the narrative throughout. Ms. Faure is able to write fiction with an accurate scientific backbone, making it even more palatable, and often impossible to put down. The action is told in a first-hand style which makes ...more
