Book Blurb:

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?

My Thoughts:

Have you ever read a book that makes you unaware of your surrounding while reading it? A book that completely sucks you in that if  bomb explodes, you wouldn't even hear it? I can tell you with so much honesty that I did! "Crossroads" by Mary Ting did it to me.

I had so much fun reading this book. It had me hooked just by reading the Prologue! I always say that YA books seldom do this to me. From those people who had been reading my blog from the start knows that there are very few YA books that I've loved and I'm very much happy to inform everyone that I've  just added Crossroads on the list of those YA books that made me happy! 

The characters are very much lovable. Claudia and Michael's chemistry is very much undeniable because you would feel the sparks from their interactions. I absolutely love every minute of reading how their relationship grew. And the other characters are likable too, I really want to know more about them in the next one. 

The pacing of the story is nice. It's not overly fast and it's not dragging which makes it much nicer to read. The world that Ms. Mary Ting built in this book is very fascinating to explore. It's not like the other Paranormal Romances that is so confusing and so hard to understand that you'd lose interest in finishing it.

This book is a very good read for me. Mary Ting is a very talented author who knows how to keep her readers satisfied and happy! I really want to read the next book of this series!
