About the Author

Bestselling, award winning author Mary Ting resides in Southern California with her husband and two children. She enjoys oil painting and making jewelry. Writing her first novel, Crossroads Saga, happened by chance. It was a way to grieve the death of her beloved grandmother, and inspired by a dream she once had as a young girl. When she started reading new adult novels, she fell in love with the genre. It was the reason she had to write one-Something Great. Why the pen name, M Clarke? She tours with Magic Johnson Foundation to promote literacy and her children's chapter book-No Bullies Allowed.

From the reviews I read of this prequel, people said it helped them to understand the next book (Crossroads) better, so I decided to read this book first. I thought it was intriguing as there is so much of Michael's story that is unknown and it made me look forward to reading Crossroads. Short but sweet with enough mystery added in to appreciate this prequel.

I was gifted a copy from the author for an honest review.
This is Michael's story about how he was once a fallen and given a second chance in Hallo City to redeem himself. This also tells of when he encounters Claudia and his friendships with Alexa Rose, Vivian, Caleb and Davin and how Aden had betrayed him.

this was sweet, cute, etc but it really did not strike me with any strong responses or reactions. This seemed to be a retelling of what I had already read in the Saga. I wish I had read this FIRST before Crossroads.

Review

‘Halo City’ is a novella which chronologically takes place before the events of book one, 'Crossroads', and in publication order takes place after book three, 'Beyond'. It follows Michael as he makes his first appearance at Halo City, Crossroads and it was a really enjoyable insight into his past and personality.
I loved the flow of the story. It seemed gentle and just plain happy. There were some really humorous moments that just made me smile a silly grin and others which were sadder. The emotions were VERY palpable in this novella!
The authoress also introduced Claudia is a unique way. I really enjoyed how the author showed Michael's and Claudia's first meetings. It really was a wonderful insight into the couple’s past.
Many of the supporting characters we see in the rest of the series have come back and made their – silly yet endearing – entrances and introductions. It was nice to see their return.
There were a few formatting issues with my paperback copy such as that some pages were blank after a chapter ended, for no reason, and the font was a bit too big for the novel. It seemed almost childish in size.
The grammar was good, yet there were a few typos but no spelling mistakes. The prose could have been worked on a little bit more, in my opinion.
Congratulations to Mary Ting on publishing a lovely companion novella to the ‘Crossroads’ series!

Rating Plan
1 star : Strongly did not like the book, writing and plot was bad. Idea of the book was against my liking.
2 star : Didn't like it, didn't find it interesting or gripping. Seemed to drag on to me.
3 star : An average book. Wasn't bad or good. Everything else was well done. Original idea.

Halo City is awesome. It is cool to find out more about Michael and the start of his friendship with Davin. You also get to find out about the first times he saw Claudia and their first meeting from his point of view.

I can never get enough Michael! I love this character so much and loved seeing some of the story through his eyes. Just like with the other Crossroads books, I am immediately transported back into this world I love so much. It's so easy to feel like you are right there having a reunion with friends. I miss them as soon as I'm done reading. This book is such a great addition to the saga. Now if I had to choose between Michael and Edward, that would be tough.

I purchased this book just the other day and read it all in 2 days. I loved getting to know Michael and Davin. I loved reading how their friendship started and how the love story started for Michael and Claudia. I would recommend this book to anyone who loves a good forbidden love story. Mary is an incredible writer and I have not found a book by her that I have not loved. I just purchased her 4th book in the Crossroads Saga, Eternity and plan on starting to read it right away. Can't wait to read what happens with Michael and Claudia.
