Crossroads Review

Hello. This is the first official post for my blog. I was wishing my first blog post to be interview with one of my new favorite authors, Mary Ting, but still I can't interview her, for few reasons. Because of that I will give an short review for her book Crossroads, that I think is great book. I haven't read it, because I can't buy it (I'm from Macedonia, Europe) so I read few reviews from other blogs, and my review will be look-a-like those reviews.

Summary:  Claudia Emerson has a good friend who shares the same first name and last name. That friend unfortunately dies in a tragic accident during homecoming dance. Claudia is distraught at the loss of her friend, but is even more disturbed by her dreams, which seem to take her to another place called Crossroads. Unknown to her, Crossroads is like a second heaven, a place between heaven and earth. It is where the souls of humans in comas or near death experiences may wander. Where, Claudia meets Michael, a nephilim, a half angel, half human, whom she often meets in her dreams. It turns out that this isn’t her first visit to Crossroads, which is an enigma for no human can ever travel there until Claudia.

Now the fallen and demons are after her, suspecting she must be special and it is up to Michael and the other nephilims to protect her. Her dream becomes a nightmare as more secrets are revealed, about who she really is, and the true identities of the people she loves most. Can Michael fight his growing feelings for Claudia and protect her as a guardian angel should?

Crossroads is another book I can now add to my list of books that make my heart happy. What a sweet, enduring, loving story. Mary did something here with a tale or story everyone might know. She made it her own. Yes she wrote about Angels, The Fallen and Demons but the way she introduces then, its new and fresh. The beginning of the book is well paced and prepares you for the action pack second half. Yes you read right, its not just all love and fairy tales in Crossroads. Mary also gives us quite a dose of action, mystery and revenge. Mary Ting is a author you need to write down as a author to watch for. If Crossroads was this mesmerizing , I can't even think how great the second in the series will be.
