"Love is in question. Trust is debatable. No one is safe. Between by Mary Ting is an enchanting, nail-biter that will leave you breathless from the exquisite cover to the thrilling end." Gabby, Nashville Young Adult Fiction Examiner/What's Beyond Forks



"The fluid motion of her words and realistic characters wrapped around my imagination like the very angels Mary Ting writes about. OMG I laughed and cried!!!" Joann Buchann, author of I Am Wolf/Shark Radio

"You will be completed entranced by the world of Mary Ting's angels. With loveable characters, sweet romance, suspense and an original plot, Between will captivate readers of all ages. A heavenly debut!" Charlotte Blackwell, author of Embrace series

"Hang on to your wings, you are in for a thrilling and gripping story about love, promises, and sacrifice.  Everything a sequel should be, Between is a brilliant and lovely tale that is remarkably tender, sexy, poignant, and made the romantic in me swoon." Jennifer Howell, LateBloomerOnline.com

"OMG, What a ride!!! I adored Crossroads (book1) but Between oh lord! It blew it right out the park!! It's bigger and better. Full of danger, excitment, passion, betrayal and above all love!" Siobhan, Totally Bookalicious

I started writing Crossroads after my grandmother passed away about 3 years ago. When these characters came to life in my mind, along with the character Gamma, inspired by my grandmother, it was a way for me to heal. I decided to start from a dream I had in high school, chapter one. Chapter two is also based on my dream as well. I didn't think I would have much to write about, but when I made Claudia to be more like me, it was easy. Her first car, her first job, her first experience at camping and her grandmother having a stroke was all part of me. Too bad Michael wasn't real...lol!!!

Many people like Davin, which I'm really happy about because his character was inspired by my friend who passed away. He was very likable and was a best friend to all his friends. Patty is my friend from church. She is exactly how I described her, social butterfly who knows everything about her friends and fashion. I named Claudia after a student I once had many years ago. I can still picture her face, just like an angel. When I was much younger, I had a crush on a boy name Michael, but his character is based off my husband, protective, romantic, and silly at times. No... he doesn't have wings...lol!!!

Though I was busy with work, being a wife, a mother, and PTA president, I would always find time to write, even if that meant typing while I was cooking or brushing my teeth. Crossroads was written for a fast, fun reading with likable characters. Many have emailed me to let me know how Crossroads has helped them escaped from their everyday stress. Also, how they've connected to this book because of chapter one, having a loved one passed away. I took on a journey not knowing how rewarding it would be for me. I've meet so many wonderful people from all over the world through facebook, goodreads and blog sites. I've made everlasting friendship where friendship knows no boundaries. And I have to thank my grandmother who continues to watch over me from Heaven.

Between by Mary Ting
"Between" continues the love saga of Claudia and Michael. And what a love story it is. A love that is pure, selfless and true between two beings so perfect for each other.
Mary Ting brings the trials of true love to the forefront with her well written spell of Claudia's and Michael's devotion, dedication and desire for each other.
As with all love stories, there are the forces against them and "Between" does not fail to provide an abundance of obstacles to the ill fated lovers. Be prepared for a ride of betrayals, romance, danger, battles, action, friendship, heartache and death.
We follow Claudia's journey to fulfilling her destiny and her new found powers and abilities. "Between" opens new explanations, beings, places, dimensions and loves. Unexpected twists and turns bring out the humane side of the beings in way that make tears stream down your face. I fell in love all over again.
Mary Ting has done it again and now I simply can't wait for the third installment of this saga. Bring out the tissues as this makes for a good cry.

However long will be too long. That's what Michael tells Claudia every time he has to leave. It definitely picks up where Crossroads left off. I smiled thru this book, laughed because Devin is just the funniest, cutest Alkin, and cried like a baby towards the end. Claudia has now met a Venator named Austin who is a demon killer. He has been assigned by Claudia's Gramma as her protector on earth since she has passed on. Michael is not happy about this because he is her guardian angel and feels jealousy over the fact that Austin may not be the one to be around Claudia because he doesn't trust him. Claudia finds herself at times drawing closer to Austin but telling herself it isn't right and wants only to be friends with him, although Austin would like more than a friendship. Claudia starts discovering powers she didn't know she had and has the opportunity to use them. Where ever Claudia is, demons will follow because of how special she is and this book proves to be so worthwhile, I wanted more. I'm not going to be the spoiler so don't expect it from me, but know you won't be able to put the book down as I read it in one day. Mary Ting went beyond the call of writing a best seller on this one. She never ceases to amaze me. There has to be a 3rd book and I can't wait for it. Wonderful story.

Between takes the Crossroad Saga to a completely new level of intense story telling!

Claudia and Michael's story continues in Between. New characters are introduced, the Venators. Who are they? Good? Bad? A love triangle unfolds for Claudia. Who could the third be? A new villain is after Claudia and her holy spirit. Will you despise this villain as much as Aiden? Intrigued yet? You should be.

I love a good story with an amazing plot. Mary's descriptive writing made the words on the page disappear for me. I was IN the story. Watching the battles, hearing the clanging of the swords, and feeling the adrenaline pumping made it come to life. There were points where I laughed, and how can you not with Davin's personality. In addition, other situations where I literally cried, having to put the story to the side and regroup myself before I could continue. What I mean by crying is the tears flowing, the snotty nose and the whole bit! Ahhh....when you read this story and get to this point, you will know exactly what I'm talking about. So not only is the superb descriptive writing take you into the story, the emotional writing will grab your soul.

The ending of this story was so intense; I am literally bouncing in my seat waiting for the third installment of this saga.

On a personal note, I want to add how special this saga is to me. If you did not know, Mary wrote this book to help her deal with the loss of her grandmother. I too, lost my grandmother shortly after reading Crossroads, so it holds a very special place in my heart and I cherish that connection that I have with Mary. The passion I have for this story has created a beautiful friendship that means the world to me.

My review:

Between by Mary Ting is a second book in The Crossroads Saga and it starts out where Crossroads ends. I was delighted by Crossroads and was very happy that I could continue reading Between right after finishing Crossroads. It's always interesting to see, how the author is developing the story and if the author is capable of living up to the expectations. My expectations were very high because I really loved Crossroads.

Mary Ting met my expectations and I would even say that with Between she exceeded my expectations. Between was not only a very good book, it was also very emotional reading for me. Between is a book about friendship, love, betrayal, making difficult choices - things what most of the people have experienced. Mary gave all these words an uplifted and emotional meaning. I laughed, I cried - I felt everything what she wrote with raw emotions and that means in my book that Between was written with the author's heart and soul. It was written with feelings.

Regarding the plot:

After the fallen and evil was destroyed in the first book, Claudia starts to explore her powers and is frustrated about feeling so week amongst her friends from the Crossroads. Her friends from Crossroads are coming to visit her again and she sees Michael again.

After Patty's birthday, something unexpected happens and Claudia is kidnapped by Austin. She is surprised to find out who Austin really is and what his connection to Gamma is. She finds herself on the Island of Eden, where Austin lives together with other venators - demon killers. Austin is following the orders of Divine Elders and is appointed to be Claudia's guardian angel instead of Michael.
