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 and for most I must say thank you to Mary Ting for sending my daughter this book… YOU SPOIL HER! She loves it! Thanks for making her feel special, she really needed it.*
This is my daughters FAVORITE book, we read it together, so we are writing the review together.
It was so refreshing to read a YA not full of smut… I never had to skip anything or blushed as my daughter was reading it. PURE DELIGHT!
We were hooked from the first page. There was always something going on. Full of action and romance that is pure. I felt like I was in another world right along with Claudia while I was reading the book.
I just don’t feel like my words are good enough to describe how awesome this read is!
The ending shocked us a little, I can’t wait for more. Luckily we have the second book and are just waiting until we finish what we are currently reading to read it together… But I am pretty sure my daughter cheated and read it all ready…
