Reviewed by Anne B. for Readers' Favorite
I love the book and its unique plot, which is loosely based on Genesis 6:1-4 and the results of that event. I've always been fascinated by that passage. Most preachers steer clear of it not knowing what it means, how to explain it or the purpose of it. Author Mary Ting brings a unique perspective to this scripture. She successfully creates a fascinating love story that will keep readers entranced.
The story centers on Claudia Emerson. As long as she could remember, she had vivid dreams of a special place. Only they were not dreams. She was at the crossroads between Heaven and Earth. Claudia had done the impossible; she had gone where human kind was not supposed to go. After meeting several angels, she was sent back with Michael as her guardian. The fallen sought her and tried to capture her, but Michael managed to prevent the capture but not before Claudia was injured. Obviously it was going to take more than one angel to keep Claudia safe from the powers of the fallen.
Crossroads by Mary Ting has it all: danger, romance, suspense, incredible characters and a plot that is sure to thrill. I would consider this a book for preteens and young adults but this "senior" adult enjoyed it too. The action never stops as good and evil battle to the death. Just when the reader thinks the excitement and danger is over, an unexpected demon pops up. Michael, Claudia, and the other Alkin all play well together. I'd like to see this made into a series with each Alkin as the lead in a tale. This well written and fascinating love story will keep readers entranced. The plot is original and has the potential to be a bestseller. In Crossroads, love crosses all boundaries.
