Summary from Goodreads: On the same night of her friend’s tragic death, Claudia Emerson encounters another world, Crossroads, through her dream. There, she learns about a mix breed of angels and humans, who possess supernatural powers. Among those with these powers, lies evil, known as the fallen. Mystified by her ability to enter this place called Crossroads, certain that the fallen will be after her, she is assigned a guardian angel named Michael. Aden, the fallen leader, is convinced that Claudia holds the key to help destroy Crossroads. 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.
I REALLY LOVED THIS BOOK!!!!
With easy-to-love characters, a fantastical and unique story line, and a delightful romance, Crossroads will captivate readers of all ages. A heavenly debut!
This book put a wonderful spin on the angel/human romance and I loved it!! Michael is not only a dream boyfriend to Claudia but he would be a parent's dream as well. Of course, he is an angel. If Micheal is a dream boyfriend then Claudia would be a dream daughter. Claudia is a great character that I don't have to scream at constantly for making horrible choices. She actually thinks about things and talks to Micheal when she has doubts and worries. The romance between Claudia and Micheal is so lovely and innocent, but still forbidden. I'm not sure how Mary Ting plans to keep them together, I just hope she can find a way.
Don't think that just because the characters are so likable that there isn't any action in this book because you would be wrong. There is some great and terrible evil, and some great kick-butt scenes. As much as I love Micheal and Claudia, I loved Micheal's fellow angels just as much. This book is truly one of the best angel on earth books I've read this year. Enjoy!!!
