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 ...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

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.
Mary Ting has really step ...more
Full Review at: What's Beyond Forks?
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 ...more
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 ...more
Claudia learns more about herself and the Fallen angels, she is distraught by keeping secrets from her best friend Patty, and Michael constantly remin ...more
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 ...more
A good continuation of the series, going right into book 3 because I am enjoying how the series is progressing and reading the adventures of Claudia, Michael, Austin and all the rest.
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 ...more

Will she be strong enough to defeat Aliah?
After reading Crossroads and being so excited for the next book. When I got a chance to review it e ...more
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 ...more
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. ...more
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 ...more
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 ...more
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 ...more
There are the Humans that aren't quite human, the Angels that aren't quite all angel and the Demons that used to ...more
“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 ...more
This book got off to a violent and exciting start that had me rather worried for Claudia's welfare. I actually thought that it was a prologue that would then jump back in time in the first chapter to lead up to the events in the prologue (that makes sense right?) for a bi ...more
