Crossover invites readers to be whisked away into a meager step away world. Mireille Chester immediately entranced me into this mystical land that lay a heartbeat away from our own. Truly a book in which I found that I could not put down.

If action and romance move you as much as they do me, then this is the series for you.

Hayden lives a normal everyday life, she’s studying to become a vet and the rest of her time is devoted to her other passion. . . . horses. She has owned her own horse for over 10 years and spends a lot of her time with him and training other horses in. One day whilst she is out on her horse ‘Dodge’ she comes across a new trail in the forest and sees a man at the opposite end who she is strangely drawn to. She doesn’t pursue at that

My Cover Thoughts: This cover is what captured my interest. It is of a tree in full bloom. If you know anything about trees you know that trees have a cycle where they bloom and shed to start all over again. This is what happens in the story Crossover.

My Thoughts/Review: Man oh man I fell in love with the cover of this book and I had to read it. Then I meet Mireille on Facebook and knew I had to read her series. I have met lots of authors on Fa

The Crossover was a brilliant tale full of magic, mystery and romance! Legends, secrets and fascinating characters abounded a plenty; which kept me turning pages at the speed of light. Well…scrolling technically, but you catch my drift. Mireille Chester has truly created a unique setting filled with characters that you can’t help but be invested in. I have to say at times I felt there was nicety to it that rang untrue. Perhaps I’m a bit

This is not normally the type of book I read but it was a fun vacation from historical fiction. This is the first book in a trilogy and it's obviously meant to be just a teaser to get you to the other two books. A lot of groundwork and back story is provided to set the tone for what's to come.

It's a fantasy novel so I can't get caught up in the realism of the characters and their reactions to situations, which is probably a good thing. It's fun to just let go and immerse yourself in a completely

I wasnt sure if this book would be my cup of tea or not.
But it would seem that my cup of tea has been doing a lot of changing just recently.

This is not your average romance, nor is it an ordinary fantasy novel.

The tale that the author has woven is a totally engrossing one.
Not only is it filled with an imaginative and colourful world but the characters are unique and intriguing.
A lot of effort has been put into the world building and back stories for Crossover.
The descriptions are rich, the cha

I’d like to thank author Mireille Chester for this wonderful read. I absolutely loved it!! Crossover is book #1 in “The Chosen One Trilogy”,. Book #2 is “Journey,” and book #3 is Destiny. I still need to read books two and three. (mental note, get done) Crossover so far is a great start to what seems to be a amazing trilogy.

Hayden has a love for horses, (I love this part, with me being a horse person all my life) she has chosen to go to veterinary school to learn how to care and heal them.

~~~~~~~~~~Dee's ★★★★★ Review~~~~~~~~~~

A paranormal romance/mystery/adventure that pulls you in from the beginning. I was struck by the similarity of the fantasy land to the magical world of Harry Potter. And the strange creatures reminded me of the bizarre characters of Star Wars fame. The author does an excellent job in bringing the land and its people into clear focus. While telling a good story, she also weaves affairs of the heart with suspense and excitement. The battle scene

When Hayden wonders into a different world, Jasper is sent to bring her to the Queen. Two strong forces are after Hayden and want to use her to defeat the other. But somewhere along the way, the rules get broken and things that have once been set in stone, since the beginning of time, get a bit blurred. Is Hayden the reason for all this change? Can two people from totally different worlds find love among the confusion? Will Hayden be able to return home? Will she want too? So much happens that y ...more

I normally don’t read fantasy; for some reason they’re difficult for me to read. I definitely took this into account when reading this book and writing this review.

First of all I have to say that I believe the author is a natural romance writer. The love scenes written in this book are extremely well done and I am quite impressed with them.

I do wish there was a bit more character development. One thing that was difficult for me personally is that I know nothing about horses, so I got a little l

Crossover is book one in the Chosen One Triology, Hayden is a young girl trying to get herself through veterinary school, but what she really wants to do is spend very waking moment with the horses. One day as she is out trail riding with her own horse Dodge a mysterious trail appears that she has never seen before, and it keeps reappearing and she often sees a man further down on the trail...this is when she meets Jasper. Hayden has no idea that she is crossing over into another world or how he ...more

Chester writes in a lot of different genres, but fantasy is her niche and it shows. Fans of classic (and modern) fantasy with a romance focus will love this series. It offers up all the elements that fans look for: exciting yet unknown worlds, developmental character production through hard decisions to be made, and of course, an epic story of soul defining love. I'm not a believer in true love in real life, but I love to read about it, and in that regard, this novel soars. Romanticism is writte ...more

Before I was half way through the first book of this series I knew that I had to read them all. I quickly purchased the remaining books. The writer has given us a story that for me was refreshing and original. I am an avid reader and have read many stories. The story follows Haydan as she finds herself drawn into another world, one in which she was born into but raised as a human. The three book set shows the path she follows as she finds love, herself, family and many enemies. Thumbs up from me ...more

This author has one of the best imaginations ever! This is world within our word so far detached it makes your head spin, but makes complete sense. The characters and all the quirks and differences are completely unique, and that's before you start getting on to the animals. The fundamental element is a good old fashioned love story, of star crossed lovers who are just meant to be. This is in a whole different league, and crazy good. fantastic!

Crossover is the first book in The Chosen One Trilogy. Before I start talking about the plot I want to reassure the readers that even though it isn’t a standalone it doesn’t have a strong cliffhanger in case you dislike those. Just like the title implies, this movie has a strong paranormal background. Even though this type of books are pretty popular, it isn’t that easy to pull it off because sticking to a legend, creating your own world, inventing creatures and much more is never easy.

Some minorish spoilers ahead....

I know I'm in the minority here when I say I didn't really like this book. What gets me is that it had SO MUCH POTENTIAL!

Aside from the terrible editing (spelling mistakes, using homophones incorrectly, blah!), the story was a huge let down. So much so that I almost debated not finishing it.

It started off very much like Ilona Andrew's On the Edge series. I love that series. It has the concept of fated mates and shape shifters. SWOON. What potential for me!!

I was introduced to the world of Quelondain when I read Eggnog Kisses. While that story was short and lacked what I needed to understand Quelondain and its people better, Crossover more than made up for that.

Amongst the narrative, dialogue and descriptions is the story of a woman who finds her place in a world she didn't know existed with a man she'd forgotten she dreamed about. A prophecy brings Hayden to Jasper. Magic binds them together. Love makes their bond stronger and unbreakable. The ad

Mireille Chester is a new author to me and as avid paranormal reader I always look forward to meeting new authors. With this in mind I dived in to Crossover with an open mind. I was really surprised to read that this had originally been released in 2010 and this was an updated version. Where has the author been and why had no one heard of her! Reading the author background I saw that she writes also under a different name, M.G.Chester.

Hayden always enjoyed spending time with her horse more than she did other humans...and one day on a ride she notices a trail and an incredibly handsome guy. Before she knows it she is pulled into another world where she is at the center of a prophecy that everyone wants to try and control. She just wants to live a simple life with her mate Jasper but she also needs to constantly hide from those that want to use her.

This actually wasn't too bad. I really liked the idea of the story and though I

I received this book from Wickedly Innocent Promotions in return for a fair and honest review.

What can I say? I loved this book! It is fast-paced and well-written with fantastic characters that jump off the page. Having 'cats' and 'dogs' on either side of the war is a stroke of genius but the general storyline itself is fresh and interesting. I loved how Hayden is not backwards in coming forwards and has no difficulty in showing Jasper that she is interested.

It all began on a Friday...
A world of magic and another world without. A path leading into the woods where one had not existed before. Tragic family histories. One special half breed child who is the cause of war but could be the only hope for peace. All factions want her for their own uses. Jasper only wants her to be his own. In the midst of a world at war this is a love story and a tale of coming of age and finding one's true place.

This is the first book of three. After enjoying this one you
