Claudia Emerson has a good friend who shares the same first name and last name. That friend unfortunately dies in a tragic accident during homecoming dance. Claudia is distraught at the loss of her friend, but is even more disturbed by her dreams, which seem to take her to another place called Crossroads. Unknown to her, Crossroads is like a second heaven, a place between heaven and earth. It is where the souls of humans in comas or near death experiences may wander. Where, Claudia meets Michael, a nephilim, a half angel, half human, whom she often meets in her dreams. It turns out that this isn’t her first visit to Crossroads, which is an enigma for no human can ever travel there until Claudia.
Now the fallen and demons are after her, suspecting she must be special and it is up to Michael and the other nephilims to protect her. Her dream becomes a nightmare as more secrets are revealed, about who she really is, and the true identities of the people she loves most. Can Michael fight his growing feelings for Claudia and protect her as a guardian angel should?
First, I want to say that I really enjoyed this book. Forbidden love, fallen angels, dangerous battles; what’s not to love? There are a lot of angel stories out there these days that do not actually include church, faith, and God. While this story does incorporate all those aspects, the story line and conflict Mary has developed are very unique.
Claudia is a human that finds herself in the middle of a celestial conflict. Michael is the oh-so-swoon-worthy half angle half human with his share of secrets. When Claudia and Michael meet on one of her unexpected trips to Crossroads, sparks fly. Mainly from Michael’s rude, arrogant and just plain mean demeanor. But all bad boys have a soft side, and when Michael is appointed as Claudia’s Guardian Angel, there is no stopping this budding romance. Or is there?
As the fallen, led by the powerful Aden, begin to attack Claudia, she’s not the only one in danger. And not everyone will be safe. The secrets, betrayals, great characters, and a fight for Claudia’s affection won’t disappoint. Definitely a good read.
