Overview

Birthdays suck!

For her eighteenth, Mirissa Colson receives a package from the mother who abandoned her over a decade ago. The family secret it reveals transforms her life from trying on prom dresses to battling an ancient race of demons. Thanks, Mom.

Her nineteenth brings forth an even more treacherous foe--one maniacal demi-god bent on ruling the world. So much for dating. Thankfully, the years of martial arts and sharpshooter training her ex-Navy SEAL dad put her through gives her the perfect skill-set to build upon.

When she's called on to save the world--literally--Mirissa finds she has a lot more in her arsenal than just a mean roundhouse kick. But learning to use her burgeoning powers--controlling the elements and sensory expansion--while her friends and family come under attack is only the first step. Stopping a demi-god from ascending to his self-appointed throne is the real challenge. But when she's hurled into a world teeming with preternatural beings, Mirissa finds herself outmatched and outgunned.

Crossfire   The Omega Group Series   Book One by Andrea Domanski     Mirissa Colson has been a typical teenager.  This is about to change and after receiving an anonymous package on her birthday her world is changing and changing fast.  In the box is a ring and once she puts it on nothing will ever be the same.  Mirissa finds out that the mother she thought was missing all these years has been staying away to protect her.  She finds out that her father’s training her in marshal arts is something that was planned. The most amazing thing is  Mirissa finds out that she is an Amazon and from a long line of Amazons.  Her mother is a queen and a warrior.  If all these things were not enough to shake up a person Mirissa is about to learn what being in a Crossfire is all about.  You won’t want to miss out on this adventure.  I am looking forward to reading more of The Omega Group Series and I have to say that Andrea Doomanski knows how to write adventure.  Bella Doerres Ma/Ed

I haven’t read many YA paranormal/contempory books lately, it’s not like I’m turned off by them I just find it difficult to put myself in the mind of a sixteen year old going through adolescence, dealing with cliques and high school drama, quite frankly I couldn’t stand my teenage years so reading about it isn’t something that I find appealing. Then, came Crossfire by Andrea Domanski and my thoughts changed drastically….in all fairness I had no idea while I was reading this book that it was part of the YA genre. Sure it didn’t have your average steamy sex scene which would leave one breathless but Crossfire was packed full of action, suspense, mystery and a mix of enjoyable characters that a raunchy sex scene wasn’t even missed. The depth of the characters and the intertwining of multiple storylines kept me at the edge of my seat up until the very end. I, for one thoroughly enjoy submerging myself into a story where the main character is blindsided by his/her true identity, comes into his/her own supernatural power and in the end saves the lives of millions by kicking some major ass….throw in some paranormal occurrences, shape shifters, mythical beings, Gods and Goddess and some lovable characters and you have the making of a terrific tale. I can’t wait to read the next book in the Omega Group Series which focuses on Greco; Mirissa’s guardian. Truths and secrets tightly guarded. His truth is one that I definitely want to uncover.

First off let me say Young Adult is not usually my genre. I would say that Crossfire is a great book for a young adult as well as an older adult, I am in my 50's. I found the synopsis to be interesting enough that I felt I needed to read Crossfire. This was an ARC for an honest review. I loved the book so much that I had to pre-order Rogue Book 2 in The Omega Group Series and fortunately I don't have to wait too long for it to come out. Rogue is due out November 15, 2014. I enjoyed Crossfire so much that I read it in less than a day. I believe there were 280 pages. Oh and as a side note I love that this series is set on Florida's east coast in Jacksonville, and NASA area. I am from Florida originally and it is always good to read a book set in my home state. I hope you buy this book and enjoy it as much as I did, enough to continue wanting to read more. Mirissa finds that she has powers to help save the world and is learning to use them in this book. I won't go into detail because you can read the synopsis as well as I can.

This was an amazing book. I was immediately drawn in by the book cover which was beautifully crafted and developed. Then after reading the description I was hooked and knew I had to read this book! I love reading YA books even at my age of 38 and proud to admit it! There is something to be said for a wonderful and well written YA novel. I was shocked that this was a new author and thought I was reading the book of a well seasoned author until I found out the author was new. Wow! Awesome job hon! The storyline was fluid and flowed perfectly throughout the course of the book, there was nothing that stopped or halted the flow which was quite refreshing. Being a student of Greek mythology myself, I loved the mythological touches in the book with the mythical Amazon and Kakodemons.The characters are extremely well developed along with their relationships and the characteristics they display are very believable and realistic. Once I started reading this book, having taken speed reading in college, I was able to enjoy it and finish it in record time while bumping into walls since I just could not put it down! Ha Ha. This book hooked me from page one and kept me on the edge of my seat with twists and turns I never saw coming and then they did, it was like an explosion of shock and wonder, it was magnificent! One a final note, this amazing book is wonderfully character driven instead of being plot or dialogue driven which makes it even more refreshing!

This is the first book in a quickly growing YA series-- and I'm so glad the author is quick! I thoroughly enjoyed the fast-packed action, the fun details, and the fabulous twists and interpretations of fact/fiction/mythology. Mirissa is anything but your typical teenage girl and her life is anything but average. My daughter read this after I did and she now wants to be an Amazon warrior!

If you took a bit of DNA from Wonder Woman, Xena, Elektra and Buffy, the result would be the Amazon warrior/Superhero Mirissa Colson. Domanski is starting off on the right foot with her first book, Crossfire. The book is well worth the read. It’s a journey fans of superheroes, action adventure and paranormal will appreciate.  The use of Greek and Amazon mythology mixed in with updated modern takes on paranormal and supernatural lore make for an appealing and interesting storyline. The addition of environmental technology and oil consumption with a malevolent character using that to control the world was creative.   The development of Mirissa from normal teenager excited about prom to badass chosen warrior was fast paced and enjoyable to read. I was pleased with the way Domanski wrote Mirissa’s father. His acceptance and support of his wife and daughter from the get go was refreshing. He was proud of the fact that the two most important women in his life were fearsome warriors and leaders.  Domanski introduces a mix of characters with different abilities on both sides of the show down between good and evil.  We meet vampire type bad guys, werewolves, humans who can pass through solid matter, humans who can connect with animals, half-breed hydras and so many others. The assortment of characters with various abilities and backgrounds made the fight scenes more exciting without overwhelming the storyline. Domanski reveals enough to keep the reader engrossed while leaving some mystery to be revealed in future books, one of those mysteries being Greco, Mirissa’s handsome guardian who has his own story to tell and a connection with Mirissa that is hinted at being far more than just her chosen guardian.  This was one of those books that pulled me in quickly and had me staying up all night devouring every word. I had to read on. There were so many things I wanted, NEEDED to know. I wanted to know if Mirissa, Myrine and the rest of the crew were going to be able to take down the bad guys. I wanted to know more about Greco. I wanted to know just how powerful Mirissa was and what was that key about. I wanted Artemis to smack Ares across the room.  Ares really deserves that!  I’m looking forward to the next books and for more kickass moments with Mirissa. She’s an Amazon warrior/Superhero who I wouldn’t mind gracing the pages of some comic books.  Copy provided for review. Reviewed by Joy for Crystal's Many Reviewers

This is the kind of book I wish I'd read as a teenager. Mirissa is a normal girl picking out her prom dress one minute, and the next is thrown into a whole new world of Amazons and Kakodaemons, interweaving Greek Mythology with a modern, preternatural world full of interesting characters. Mirissa is the ultimate heroine, full of strength, confidence with just a tinge of self-doubt, and the right amount of sass. Her voice rings through clear and true throughout, carrying you along on a fast paced adventure. What a great, fun read from a break-through author! Can't wait to read the next book in the series. :)
