What Readers Have to Say About The Touched Saga

"For those who love urban fantasy, a story of love, adventure, action, romance . . . this book has it all. It's a wonderful mix that will sweep readers away with the protagonists. You’ll laugh, cry, and find excitement on every page." Beatrice, Booklovers blog


"You’ll find yourself immersed in the story, experiencing along with the protagonists a world of imagination, passion, love, and friendship." Kaiko, Amazon


"I couldn’t put this book down. I read it three times, and each time I was just as moved as I was the first time! It’s good, very good . . . I hope it’s translated into every language in the world, that it’s made into a movie, a television series, a comic book. I want to see Touched Halloween costumes and rearview-mirror ornaments! This book should even have fanfiction spinoffs—it  deserves all this and more." Valentina Canella


"I loved every single sentence in the book . . . Everything! Really! Touched is a perfect mix, with a sweetness that warms the soul. I’ve read the Twilight saga, and I can say that your book is every bit as good (and this is from a Twilight groupie!) I wonder why it hasn’t been made into a film yet? It would be wonderful! I would watch it over and over again. I’m also going to buy the paper version of the first book so I can always have it with me. You have a rare talent. Evan and Gemma have taken over my heart and it will be difficult to think about anything else for a while!" Ila Ria


 "I read it in one day even though I had to work the night shift at my job! Very good . . . I look forward to the second one. It’s the first fantasy novel I’ve ever read because I’ve never liked the genre, but yours made such a huge impact on me that I devoured it. Your story pierced my heart!" Linda Guarnieri


"I finished the book a while ago and my heart’s still racing! It’s wonderful, it's beautiful . . . The emotion in this book seems to explode and overwhelm you! My compliments. I forgot all about the time." Anna Guerra


"I'm reading the book and it is WONDERFUL. I should go to sleep, but I can’t stop reading! Your book has kidnapped me!”

Laura Lombardozzi


"A beautiful story, a wonderful read. Thank you." Monica Maggi


"Heartwrenching. You’ll cry and be filled with love!" Luisa Albezani

"I just finished reading Touched: The Caress of Fate." It’s TOO MUCH! So wonderful! I can’t wait for the next one to come out!" Ele


"I’ve read other books in this genre, but I’ve never gotten so attached to the characters as I did in this book. I felt every one of their emotions as if it were my own." Mary Fainello

"After the prequel, “The Shadow of Fate,” the book could only be WONDERFUL. A caress of fate." Eleanor


"Elisa Amore is an author with a lot of potential, a well-defined personal style, and an abundance of imagination, capable of taking a formula that’s in danger of becoming cliché and turning it into something new and original, with fresh, up-to-the-minute language, innovative ideas, and lots of interesting plot developments. Emotions are the heart and soul of the novel; readers will experience what Amore’s characters feel, as they live this rich and evocative story along with them. Touched: The Caress of Fate stands out compared to other run-of-the-mill paranormal novels, promising great things for the next books." Reading at Tiffany's

"I'm reading The Caress of Fate. I’m still at the beginning, but I’m already hooked. I love the writing." Twitter, Roland


"But what if your destiny is named Evan, as beautiful as a ray of sunshine and as sweet as cotton candy? And what if he’s also your executioner? Elisa Amore reminds me how nice it is to read and to love reading." Consuelo
