Beyond Review and Giveaway

Title: Beyond
Author: Mary Ting
Publish Date: Expected publication: September 12th 2012 by World Castle Publishing


Torn between the past she can't remember and a future she isn’t ready for, Claudia feels at a loss. With unanswered questions, she is certain there is more to her past than just being a venator. Finding the missing pieces in her life won’t be easy because duty calls. When mysterious dark shadows get released, an apocalypse sets in motion. The venators and the alkins must work together once again. Knowing Claudia would be the key to destroying the demons that were released, a familiar stranger appears to protect her. Drawn to the beautiful angel, Claudia finds she must unravel the mysteries of her past in order to help save the world. Who is the angel assisting her and why does she feel a strong connection to him? Time is running out. Will she discover all the secrets before it’s too late?

The Crossroads Saga continues with Beyond, the third installment in the series.

 Claudia is healing after the last battle and Austin has been taking care of her. She laughs at his teasing and flirting, but is ready to start training again with the Venators. Although she is physically healed, she feels there is something different. She does not remember everything and Austin explains to her that she has selective memory.

 Dark Shadows were released, who invade human souls and become demons. The Venators and Alkins team together on missions to right this horrible wrong. However, whenever Claudia finds herself in trouble, this person always shows up to save her. She never sees his face, but feels a deep connection to him.

Claudia becomes a little defiant when she decides to go off on her own seeking some answers. Through out the story, she find clues to her past, and tries to piece together those clues to trigger her memory.

 I must say the Crossroads Saga is one of my very favorites! Beyond takes the story a bit deeper and darker, with so much action that you will be unable to put it down. My heart would break every time Michael would show up to the rescue, but unable to be with Claudia the way they should. Davin as usual, is his funny self, and I were extremely excited that he had a bit of his own drama. Austin, well, words can’t describe how I feel about him, only that I hope that someday he finds his “Claudia”. Beyond is written differently than the rest, with a couple different stories going on at once, which collided at the end into a massive finale. The writing is beautiful, with the images so vivid in my mind that I could swear that I was there. Mary Ting without a doubt knows how to pull the emotions from your soul. With all the Crossroads books, they end with a cliffhanger, which leaves you begging for more.

Beyond will be released on September 12, 2012!
