If you found yourself not getting enough of constantly thinking about Crossroads, then hold on to your seats cause for sure, this book will get you high!

Two thumbs up for Mary Ting for a job well-done for having this book creatively written. The plot is good, and the story line itself would make you want read the book during the wee hours of the night wishing that the novel wouldn’t somehow end. The second book had presented more intensity in the gravity of situation-- the dilemma of keeping our

Mary Ting's story telling abilities immediately wraps around you like a blanket and carries you safely through this world of magic and mystery while giving you the most romantic ride of your life. The love between Michael and Claudia is challenged not only by a couple of new characters that are brought into play but by a past that Michael must now explain. The love story is beautiful and the characters are all well defined. I caught myself giggling out loud at some of the comments and saying Oh ...more

I was pretty pumped getting to read this novel, especially because it came to me in all its beautiful glory as a paperback. Yet this novel also meant the great potential I saw for the series in the first book was also continued here. And I must say it was pretty darn exciting revisiting this old world!
I loved the emotions that literally PERMEATED the novel! It was full of love and passion, but also heaps and heaps a

However long will be too long. That’s what Michael tells Claudia every time he has to leave. It definitely picks up where Crossroads left off. I smiled thru this book, laughed because Devin is just the funniest, cutest Alkin, and cried like a baby towards the end. Claudia has now met a Venator named Austin who is a demon killer. He has been assigned by Claudia’s Gramma as her protector on earth since she has passed on. Michael is not happy about this because he is her guardian angel and feels je ...more

"When reading Between by Mary Ting, you feel that you are immediately wrapped up in Angel wings and taken for the flight of your life. At times you feel like you might fall but then your back up in the clouds feeling Heavenly again. This sophomore novel delivers everything that makes a book Great: Romance: check, Action: check and even heartache: check plus I can't forget to mention about those swoon-worthy Angels! Between will leave you on a celestial high!"

Between continues where Crossroads l

Mary Ting has done it again! She has written a beautifully romantic and suspenseful tale of forbidden love. Micheal and Claudia's passion in Between will leave you breathless and wanting more.

Seriously Between blew me away! If you thought Crossroads was a roller coaster of emotions just wait until you read Between. The romance, lust, betrayal, action and heartache that I loved in Crossroads just got bigger and better in Between.

Between introduces you to new characters, new creatures and new dangers. Everything you learned about Claudia, Crossroads, and the World Mary Ting created gets tossed in the air. Love is in question. Trust is debatable. No one is safe. It is an enchanting nail-biter that will leave you breathless from the exquisite cover to the thrilling end.

Mary Ting has done it again!! I loved Crossroads but I think Between was even better...I laughed and cried and it left me wanting more and that is the hallmark of a great book and author. I loved the storyline and the crossover with the vampires and cannot wait to see how everything between Michael and Claudia plays out. Great job Mary!!!!!!

A heart pounding sequel to Crossroads, Between is as perplexing, intense and endearing as the first. Where love is the reason for everything; readers are bound to get sucked into the supernatural world that Mary has created.

Most people know that "angel" books are the last books I'd even choose to pick up- honestly they just never interested me and I always felt as though even if majority of the people loved the book, I didn't. So I chose not to read about angels. But when I read the summary for

I actually enjoyed this book a lot more than the first! Claudia spends a lot of time with Austin and I love him! All my suspicions about him from the first book were true. We find out his secrets and I won't spoil things but he is a good guy and helps Claudia. I found him hilarious and very charming. Michael is sweet but I just feel like Austin has a more fun and outgoing personality. I really enjoy his scenes. There were still plenty of Michael scenes where he showered Claudia with love and gif ...more

As much as I enjoyed the first book in the Crossroads saga, I enjoyed this second book even more! It was such a treat meeting up for a second time with my favorite characters from the previous book.

Again, the author didn’t disappoint. Aside from the eye-catching cover and the finer little details on the inside of the book, the reader can also look forward to the continued, heart-achingly sweet romance between Claudia and Michael, unforeseen plot twists, action-packed battle scenes, a host of new

Found on facebook via a 'Twilight' fan page, I decided to give this book a read on my Kindle. Boy am I glad I did! Luckily upon finishing, book 2 of this saga 'Between' became available. Young adult / fantasy genre is something I 'dabble' in and have been pleasantly surprised how each story takes me away. Do you believe in Angels? How about Angels here on Earth? I loved how Mary Ting took a girl from our modern world, and referred to the stories of the Bible (without being a 'religious' book) to ...more

Between is the 2nd book in the Crossroads Saga. This fallen angel story captures your attention from the beginning to end, with romance, mystery, betrayal, and battles that will keep you glued to the book. Emotions run wild, and I seriously cried like a baby at certain moments of that book. That makes Mary an incredible author in her story telling.

Claudia learns more about herself and the Fallen angels, she is distraught by keeping secrets from her best friend Patty, and Michael constantly remin

In a battle of good versus evil, where even the good angels may be tempted by love and power, Mary Ting has done it again! Her newest release, Between, from her Crossroads Saga is fresh, unlike many other angel stories I've ever read. I was drawn in by the beautiful love story between a Claudia and her guardian angel, Michael, in her first book, and the chemistry continued to build between them in this one. This is a powerful, moving story. The mystery of Claudia, who is hunted by dark powers, p ...more

This is even better than Crossroads. Mary really knows how to develop her characters. I was really surprised I enjoyed this so much. There have been so many books in this genre, I thought I would feel like "been there, done that" but I thoroughly enjoyed this book. You will laugh and cry. Usually in these YA novels, the girls in this story are wussy or are so "poor me" and homely and life is just going along with nothing special. Then comes this amazing guy who is so perfect.

WOW I did not expect to say this but this second book of the series is even better than the first!
It is so well written! The relationships with Claudia and the Alkins are becoming even closer, the love between her and Michael is plain to see and beautifully depicted throughout the novel. Claudia is also feeling a strange confused sort of attraction to Austin. I love the Alkins trying to learn the "human" speech and dress sense etc. Davin is as humorous as ever and Caleb is coming to the
Between the Covers
REVIEWED by Louise for Between the Covers blog:

Between, the sequel to Crossroads (read my review HERE), returns us to the vivid world Mary Ting has created. We find Claudia trying to live her life, trying to be a “normal” teen in a world that she has learned is anything but. (Side note to Claudia... Normal is soooo last year. Embrace your inner uniqueness, young padawan!)

Okay... I have to say this. *mumbles and says really quickly* There were parts of Crossroads that moved a little slow for me.

A breathtaking sequel that is just as addicting as Crossroads, Between will lure you in and leave you wanting so much more. With new characters, a swoon worthy new love interest, danger, betrayal, romance and plenty of plot twists, I couldn't get enough of Mary's enchanting world or her mesmerizing mythology.

Between is a a fabulous sequel that has everything I had hoped it would be and more. The romance is taken up a notch, the danger and betrayal are fabulous and the plot twists were

The world Mary has created from her dreams has sucked me in and made me feel a part of it! I LOVE the characters. She has made me feel as if they are my best friends! On the outside, Claudia looks and acts like your typical teenage girl, but unknowingly, she is really so much more! This is what you are going to find with many of Mary's characters, that there is so much more to know!
There are the Humans that aren't quite human, the Angels that aren't quite all angel and the Demons that used to

Between was an amazing follow up to Crossroads. I felt such strong feelings with this book. The pain and sadness that Claudia felt with the loss of her Gamma and her love for Michael. Mary Ting has an amazing gift of truly making you feel with her characters.

The romance between Michael and Claudia is so sweet. They are such a cute couple! The story is written in such a way that you can just tell how much they love ea

Between by Mary Ting

“Between” continues the love saga of Claudia and Michael. And what a love story it is. A love that is pure, selfless and true between two beings so perfect for each other.

Mary Ting brings the trials of true love to the forefront with her well written spell of Claudia’s and Michael’s devotion, dedication and desire for each other.

As with all love stories, there are the forces against them and “Between” does not fail to provide an abundance of obstacles to the ill fated lovers

I received the ecopy of this book from the author to give an honest review!

Between had me from the first page. When I finished Crossroads (the first book in the series) I could not wait to read Between. I was into this book.

It has action, forbidden love, humor, heartache, suspense all the things that make a good story come to life.
To me there were more details in this book than in book 1. But do not get me wrong, the first book was amazing, but this one took the icing on the cake for a great

Between is the second installment of Crossroads Saga by Miss Mary Ting.

If you love the first book then you'll love the second one even more because everything has been upgraded! More Romance, More Action, More Angst!

I'm actually amazed at how Ms. Mary Ting wrote this book. The flow of the story is even better than the last one. It's even more exciting and a lot sexier. In here, we see how Claudia and Michael struggles because of their forbidden love. Knowing that they will be separated someday t

My review:

Between by Mary Ting is a second book in The Crossroads Saga and it starts out where Crossroads ends. I was delighted by Crossroads and was very happy that I could continue reading Between right after finishing Crossroads. It’s always interesting to see, how the author is developing the story and if the author is capable of living up to the expectations. My expectations were very high because I really loved Crossroads.

Mary Ting met my expectations and I would even say that with Between
