This is one of the most beautiful forbidden love stories I have ever read and it is presented in such a pure, holistic way in which the reader feels fully connected to each of the characters. We are invited into a world that is as much our own as it is these characters and they take us to a place that is so beautiful and peaceful where the atmosphere thins between life and the afterlife. They take us to the crossroads, to the place where only those who have passed can move through, with one exception, Claudia. She is the only living human who dreams herself to this place and who can see it for what it is but cannot move through it. She can only sit at it and see the beautiful angels who guard it. Little does she know that her dreams are really her reality and that being at the crossroads is the most dangerous thing for her, but she cannot seem to stop dreaming of the place and because of this her life is put in danger, but her guardian angel will keep her safe and set forth a course of events that changes her entire world both for the good and the bad. A darkness looms over Claudia's life and soon she realizes that she must depend on her guardian angel. Who will win? What will happen? Can't miss this read! It is a great book and one of my absolute favorites!

Claudia is a girl who when asleep, unknowingly goes to the Crossroads. She thinks that the rude boy there is just a figment of her imagination. What she doesn't realize is that she is actually in the place between heaven and earth.

I liked the sound of the book and was quick to read it when I got it from the author. However, within the first couple of chapters I knew that I was in big trouble. Maybe it's because I am 25 and this book is geared toward someone in their early teens? I found the dialogue to be quite lacking and it just didn't seem like something someone would normally say. The majority of the dialogue between Michael and Claudia was overkill on the sweet talk, for example... "You're doing it again. Melting my heart with your smile." I just could not get into the author's writing style. She paid great attention to detail and even to small talk and I think that is what got me. I like it when an author is short and sweet and gets to the point. Details are great and I love to see the world that the author envisioned but there is a fine line between informed and information overload.

I wish I could say that I enjoyed this book and I tried to find an angle of the story that I liked but the only two things I liked about this book was the idea and the cover. Like I said, maybe I am too old for the age group. Would I allow my 12 year old niece to read this, yes because there is no swearing, Claudia is highly respectable to her elders, smoking and drinking is heavily frowned upon and the romance is nothing but a few kisses here and there. This is a very wholesome book. If you have a young one at home that is interested in reading the new angel fad, then this is a great book for them to read. However, for my age group, I was looking for something with a little bit more oomph and it just didn't have it for me.

This book is a young romance novel that I thought I would not like! I was asked to read this and once I picked it up, I couldn't put it down!!! The book was so romantic and exciting at the same time that it took me back to my teenage years! I hope there will be a book two. three, and so forth so that I can feel young at heart!!!

A tad bit better than The Gatekeeper’s Sons, it’s filled with body language, which was refreshing after that book.

All of the books so far in this Gods and Mortals box set have had great plots, great ideas but, the only one to actually pull it off this far is Elsker, the others have seriously been lacking.

Yet another book that I just couldn’t finish. Barely focuses on the plot, it’s just so tedious and seems to focus on the feelings. While that’s great and all, the plot is there for a reason, give it some of the lime light!

I thought that the friend who died with the same name as the protagonist would have had more of an impact, I mean that’s the first thing you hear about her in the teaser and when the book starts but, she’s hardly even mentioned.

Honestly, the way that teens are being written now, at least in the books I’ve been reading, is getting ridiculous. Do authors actually think that teens are as spacey and clueless as they write them? If I was still a teen, I’m not that much older, I would be offended.

Again, I have notes.

Okay, she’s in a shop and a dressing room door slams and she thinks it’s the wind. Then she says it must be the A/C…I don’t know about you but, every dressing room I’ve been in, the door is at least heavy enough to not slam by the A/C. Just how hard is that thing going? Or how thin are the dressing room doors?

Michael, her guardian angel, says he trained under Aden, the Fallen leader and she wonders how he could associate with someone as evil as him. Did she not hear Michael tell her about Aden and how he became Fallen? Does the things he tells her go in one ear and out the other?

And one last note, she tries to use a flashlight to fight, not once but twice.
