Our Lives in Between is the first book in The Enlightened Series by Billie Kowalewski. Unable to process the loss of her lover, Veronica Edwards eventually succumbs to death, only to wake up as her true self, Harmony. Harmony soon realizes she is a Soul who has lived multiple lives on Earth to further her lessons. But in most of those lives, she tragically meets death whenever she comes across Kaleb's avatar. Harmony learns that she and Kaleb are extreme Souls eternally bonded together. With their fates intertwined, both reveal their mutual feelings for each other. But a nefarious group called the Eradicators is hell-bent on stopping the Earth experiment for good. Tasked with writing a story of Earth's creation, Harmony inadvertently puts herself and Kaleb in danger of disappearing forever.

Author Billie Kowalewski has delivered a stellar first installment of what promises to be a fantasy saga unlike any other. Featuring a healthy dose of romance, mystery, and the fantastical, Our Lives in Between engages you from the very first page all the way until the last. Kowalewski's accessible prose lends credence to an immersive plot, creating a breezy and well-paced story any fantasy enthusiast would love to read. The narrative is smooth and sails past without a single hitch. I really liked the characters. The main characters have well-defined and distinct traits, with a good supporting cast that helps move the plot forward. Harmony and Kaleb have wonderful chemistry, and their back-and-forth never fails to keep you entertained. All in all, a good read for fantasy and romance lovers alike.
