* * * READERS FAVORITE GOLD AWARD WINNER 2012--YOUNG ADULT * * *
***Based on a dream the author had in high school-chapter 1 & 2*** 

"Crossroads contains action, twists and romance that has you flipping through the pages so fast that you're at the end and ready for more before you know it." Gabby, Nashville Young Adult Fiction Examiner/What's Beyond Forks
 
Watch out Edward Cullen! The angel Michael has officially given you a run for your money! Teens everywhere will add a new fictional boyfriend to their ever growing lists! OMWings! An amazing paranormal angel romance that stays with you long after the last page has turned. I need more! Jennifer Howell with LateBloomerOnline.com
 
"I'm taking a break from vampires and spending time with Mary's angels. Michael can wrap me inside his wings and take me away. Very original. So much passion and danger. I could not put it down!" Charlotte Blackwell, author of Embrace series
 
"Crossroads-a romantic adventure that keeps you guessing. Mary Ting's character, Claudia, will capture your heart and make you believe in angels." Joann Buchanan, author of I Am Wolf/Shark Radio
 
"Crossroads is an exciting debut book with a rich paranormal mythology, unique angel-lore, forbidden romance, action, suspense and plot twists. With her detailed writing and a plot that flow wells, Mary created a world I enjoyed visiting, and a story that was hard to put down." Katie with Mundie Moms
 

From the Inside Flap

EXCERPT: Though Phillip had already told me that I wouldn't be able to tell the difference between an alkin and a fallen, it was confirmed as I watched the battle. They looked just like the alkins as the two sides battled with swords. Watching, I noticed that Michael had one too, but where had it come from?
     "No!" Michael shouted, suddenly standing directly in front of me. "You don't need her. She's just a human."
     "Get them!" Aden shouted again.
     During the entire fight Michael stayed by my side, protecting me. They fought so swiftly that even with my flashlight it was hard to distinguish alkins from the fallen. I focused intently, trying to figure out who was who, but it was no use. They were too fast for human eyes. I pointed the flashlight, hoping to blind or distract them, but that also proved to be pointless. It was only useful for my vision.
     In the blink of an eye they were here, there and everywhere. The clanging of swords colliding was painful to hear. As the screeching sounds continued, all I could see were sparks as the swords made contact, as if we were in the middle of a lightning storm. Fearful of any alkin getting hurt, I covered my ears, hoping that it would end soon.
     Suddenly, Aden raised his hand toward the stars, and the fallen stopped. The sounds of the swords crashing against each other came to a dead halt. Aden started circling around Michael and me. As he drew closer, I could see that he looked exactly as I remembered him from my dream. The wrinkles on his forehead defined his age, and though I conceived him as evil, his voice scared me more than his appearance. Aden never lifted a finger to fight; instead, he relied on the fallen to carry out his battle strategies.
     "Michael, come with me. I'll give you anything you want."
     "There is nothing I want from you."
     "They've turned you against me. I should have killed you when I had the chance." Aden's eyes raged with anger.
     "They didn't turn me against you. I did it of my own free will."
     "Move out of my way!" Aden shouted.
     "You'll have to go through me first!"
     As Aden continued to circle around us, I could sense movement from the fallen, edging closer to Michael and me. The alkin must have sensed it too as they positioned themselves right behind us and immediately began to attack the fallen.
     Michael moved me to the left and then to the right, fighting while shielding me. Though the fallen were fewer in number than before, they were retaliating in full force. In the midst of all the chaos, I lost my grip on the flashlight, and it tumbled off the cliff. Instinctively I reached for it, and in that split second someone or something collided against me, and I plummeted off the cliff.
     Gravity was pulling me faster than my body could resist. I'd always heard that at the moment of death, one's life flashed before their eyes; all the moments that had brought them to that point, big or small. All I could think of was death itself and the one person who had changed my life forever--Michael.

Format: Paperback
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.
