I was one of the privileged few who was able to read it before it came out. Mary Ting takes you on a roller coaster ride filled with love and laughter. Her characters come to life and make you cheer for them. Beyond is a story with so much heart I read it in a couple days. I couldn't put it down and couldn't wait to see what was going to happen next. The opening of the Beyond intrigued the dark side of me and made me keep turning the pages. As the love story continued between Claudia and Michael ...more

I was set this arc e-copy directly from the lovely Mary Ting. I had reviewed her book Crossroads, the first in the Crossroads Series when I first began blogging, just over year ago. I was introduced to Mary by another lovely author friend that I have made via blogging called Patti Roberts. Since then I have eagerly awaited new titles from Mary and enjoyed each book in the Crossroads series more the previous book.
The cover is gorgeous, it has my most favourite element from the prior book

Beyond has enraptured me in all my heart and all my soul. A beautiful and poignant love story that resonates long after the last page.

Grab the tissue box because Mary Ting has touched our hearts once again with another amazing story. This story captures you from the moment you read the first page till the very end.
I was gifted this book from the author for an honest review.
Love really doesn’t know any boundaries when it comes to Claudia and Michael. Who wouldn’t want a love like theirs? The Crossroad saga continues and Claudia is looking for answers but no one wants to be the one to really tell her. But there’s always someone

Since the previous novel in the series, 'Between', a lot had been introduced. Vampyrs or vampires have been presented as fallen angels who've been changed be a witch into creatures needing blood to sustain themselves. I found this particularly interesting because of the way the author decided to integrate this particularly popular fantasy creature. I couldn’t wait to delve in!
It was a slow beginning for 'Beyond' I w

Crossroads is the series that made me fall in love with angels! It has the perfect blend of adventure, mystery, and romance. Once I started reading Beyond, I simply could not put it down.

I will add a full review later, but I loved this book!

This being the third book in the Crossroads saga by Mary Ting, “Beyond” leaves no room for disappointment. As in the previous books, the characters come to life in this installment of yet another part of the journey Claudia has to undertake to fulfill the destiny she was meant for – but not without peril. Relationships and friendships are plunged into turmoil, and loyalties are put to the test whilst the reader is thrust into a world where beings good and evil collide, and the life-altering choi

"Reading the Crossroads Saga has always put me in a very ethereal place while turning its pages. Well in BEYOND Mary Ting takes its to another level and I embrace the new darkness with open wings just like Michael would with his heart-shaped wings!"

In the book market right now there are a few Angel stories, but Mary's has more to it then just Angels. Its makes you happy like a contemporary novel affects you when you read it. It has paranormal beings that usually don't exist in the Angels world.

Mary Ting has done it again hooking me in an amazing world of angles and demons. The emotions and feelings that the characters go through just capture you through out the book. You easily get swept up in the story from beginning to end. There were some parts that I did not see coming. What Michael and Claudia go through just to keep their love for each other is amazing. Also what Davin,Vivian and Caleb do for their friends show what true friendship is. Love and friendships gives you strength to ...more

Mary Ting is one of my favourite authors right now. She manages to deliver every single time. She has created yet another breath taking novel that gets under your skin. And stays with you long after you finish.

Over all, Beyond was exciting, imaginative and keeps you on your toes. The Crossroads series is a breathe of fresh year within the YA Market. I challenge anyone not to fall in love when reading these.

If you find yourself Between the Crossroads and Beyond then you have found author Mary Ting's INCREDIBLE series. Crossroads introduces you to her incredible world. Between leaves you wondering if light or dark will rule. Beyond is just that! The characters, settings and story line are Beyond words. What a beautiful and exciting world that Claudia, Michael and all the other venators and the alkins live in.

Stay tuned!

To think the saga is almost over...Almost breaks your heart.

I have to say that the more I read about Claudia and Michael, the more I start to think about them as friends.

Mary Ting has done yet another fabulous job at bringing the story to life. I love the different point of views and where the story has been taken.

I can't wait for the next installment...but I'm also anxious as it seems to be the last...So sad!!

I was gifted this book from the author and had the privilege to read it before it comes out. I read it and it was absolutely everything I wanted it to be, plus more. Mary Ting did it again in her third installment of Crossroads Saga Beyond.
If you loved Crossroads and Between then you'll absolutely will love Beyond, be ready to laugh to be in suspense and to cry.

Mary Ting has crafted yet another beautiful, heart wrenching, and well written masterpiece!
Beyond is the highly anticipated third book in the Crossroads Saga.
I loved how the story progressed and that she integrated characters from the world of another talented author, Charlotte Blackwell. I did feel however that the story was a little rushed toward the end but without divulging too much in the way of spoilers I hope there is a fourth book!!

Such a good story. This book picks up right where Between (book 2) left off. Claudia cannot remember her past. Well, she can remember parts of it but she KNOWS she is missing something major. Her heart doesn't feel right. She remembers Austin and some of the others but when she meets a stranger and feels her heart stir, she knows he is what she is missing. As she tries to figure out what is true and what isn't, she realizes she has to save the world from a horrible evil.

This is book three in the Crossroads Saga and needs to be read in order.

Claudia is learning how to be a venator in this book. She's learning how to fight and use her powers. Austin is there by her side to help show her how to shoot. He's also there as more. He wants to be with her as more than a friend even though he shouldn't. Claudia has feelings toward him and when another woman is near she gets jealous. Then there's Michael. She knows there's something more than friendship with him, but due

Another fantastic book in this awesome series!! I was on the edge of my seat the whole time. The way Mary makes you feel the emotion of each character blows my mind. I felt their pain, their sadness and thankfully their love and determination to win in the end. I laughed out loud at certain points and had tears running down my face in others. I already miss the characters and have to re-read it right away.

Well Mary Ting has done it again. This book kept me intrigued the whole time wanting more. I could not put it down. I have fallen in love all over again with this series and the characters themselves. It had everything you could possibly want in a book lasting friendships, suspense, comedy, Sorrow and most of all an everlasting love.

I was hired to proofread this book. The author is not and was not aware that I would be reviewing the book afterwards. I just like to review every book that I read. If you feel that my connection with the book makes my review untrustworthy, so be it, but this is my honest review.

This is the third book in the series and the first one I've read (if you don't count The Angel Knights and The Chosen Knights from the spin-off series). I know I'm missing some backstory because it's hinted at and allude

This third book of the Crossroads Saga is perhaps the most disappointing book so far. I really want to like the series, but I can not. There are some good ideas, but most of them are incomplete. There are also several random ideas that feel very out of place. It would be wonderful to see Ting take just one of the surface ideas and go deeper. In doing so, the books would have better flow and the story would be less confusing to follow. As it is, I choose not to continue through the rest of the se ...more

This is the third book in the Crossroads Saga. I loved it!

Claudia Emerson is a fantastic character. I have come to regard her as a friend. She also has a strong personality - she has a stubborn streak a mile wide! She is now training to be a venator, a nephilim demon hunter. But she feels that there is something missing, but cannot remember what.

I was very happy to meet all the characters again, as I have come to think

Beyond by Mary Ting was a great follow up to its two predecessors! More action, and so romantic. We are caught up once again in the world of angles, fallen angels, demons, and humans.

Beyond picks up where Between picks up. Claudia is thrust into the world of venators and alkins. After having being stripped of her memories by the uber sexy Michael, the casual run ins that Claudia has with her old gang is exactly just that…run ins. With her memories of them and their times together forgotten, it w

I was slightly disappointed after the first books in this series. The grammatical errors were beyond irritating. Not to mention the overall misuse of words! It seems as if an intern at the publishing company was given this book to edit and no one reviewed their work. Other than that the story was lagging compared to the other books. I found it difficult to want to read this book but I never leave a book unfinished if I make it past 3 chapters. The "human slang" used by the angels was over done a ...more
