One of the best reads of the year. The author puts you in a place you see as true and never ending. True love and romance and a must read for all ages. You can believe that angels are real and watch over us all the time. Can the forbidden love Michael and Claudia feel for each other help save her life or will it be an obstacle that could hurt it? Wonderful story and can't wait for more. ( )

On the same night as the tragic death of a once very close friend Claudia Emerson encounters another world, called Crossroads through her dreams. Whilst in Crossroads she learns about a mix breed of angels and humans called the Alkin. Claudia learns of the supernatural powers that the Alkin possess. Among the Alkin lies evil known as the "fallen" . The Alkin that choose not to follow the Divine Rules. It is certain that because of her ability to go to Crossroads that the fallen will be after her/ So she is assigned a guardian angel named Michael. The leader of the fallen is called Aden, he is convinced that Claudia somehow holds the key to help him destroy Crossroads. Her dream, at times becomes a nightmare, as more secrets are revealed. Who she really is, and the true identities of the people she loves the most.

What a beautifully written book!, It has great descriptions of the things, and places Claudia sees. The battle scenes are so well described you feel like you are part of them too. I love the humorous parts where the Alkin Angels are trying to blend in with the humans. This book has a touch of everything, there's, action,humour, mystery,and of course a little romance thrown in too. Hmmm for a favourite character who would I choose? Well of course there's Claudia, but then there's Michael and don't forget Davin, Caleb and Vivian. Even though he is a fallen Aden is also a great character you learn lots about the characters. I really could go on and on but I don't want to slip and put spoilers in my review! A definite must, must read! ( )

Claudia has been having strange dreams almost all her life. She sees the same place every time, and sometimes she sees and talks to other people there. When a friend of hers with the same name dies, Claudia sees this friend in her dreams. She soon discovers that her dreams are taking her to a special place- the Crossroads. While there she interacts with Michael, who quickly informs her she doesn't belong and is not welcome at the Crossroads. As Claudia learns more about Michael and the Crossroads though, she will begin a completely new journey. The truth changes everything for Claudia. Now she must manage to stay safe and navigate the waters of true love.

This was a very interesting book. Perhaps the best part for me was the characterizations. The author did a fabulous job of writing people that felt real. They had good points and bad points, but mostly they were just great characters. I found myself wanting to know more and more about them and their world. Even the bad guys. There's also a very sweeping romance. In fact, the romantic aspects of the book do take up a good deal of time. So be prepared for that. There is plenty of action too though. For me one of my favorite parts was when Claudia went to a birthday party with a group of half-angels in tow. They were an awesome group, and that's definitely some people I want to party with!

There were a couple surprises in the book, so that was always fun to come across. This book also had an amazing part dealing with the death of loved ones. You felt the grief, but you also got a great sense of hope. Naturally a book dealing with angels will discuss the afterlife, and this book does a great job of balancing the sadness of passing with the joy of knowing no one ever truly dies. If you want to get lost in a book with some fun characters, daring action scenes, and a lot of smushy romance, then definitely check this book out!
