I received a copy of this book from the author in return for an honest review. This is the fourth and final book in the Crossroads Saga.  I loved it! Claudia Emerson is a fantastic character.  She has endured a lot in her life: from the deaths of her best friend and Grandmother, to losing her memory.  However, I found her to be an extraordinary woman.  She has grown with her experiences, and is a pretty formidable opponent.  But, she is about to face her toughest challenge yet!   I fell in love with this series when I first read Crossroads last year.  I have been looking forward to reading this book ever since I heard it was being written.  I knew that I was in for an exciting and fast paced read, and the author didn't disappoint! However (and this is NOT a complaint), Claudia is not as involved with this story compared to the other books, even though she is there.  There is a reason for this, but I'm not saying what it is!  You will have to read the book to find out for yourselves!  It made a nice change to follow Davin and the rest of the Alkins and the Venators as they carried out their duties.  I think that Davin has also grown in this series. He has become a leader (and an able one at that).  I did find that I missed him, his bad jokes and his love of salsa notwithstanding! He is one of my favourite characters in this series.  There are some twists and turns in the story which kept me hooked! Dantanian may be evil, but I didn't get the impression that his character was as strong as it could have been.  He reminded me of a bully who has low self-esteem issues. Mary Ting is an amazing author! Her characters are extremely lifelike and likable. I added her to my favourite authors list a while back. Her books are a joy to read (when they're not making you cry!). They are fast paced, take you on a roller coaster ride of emotion and flow beautifully! I highly recommend this book (and series) if you love YA, Paranormal Romance, Angels, Demons, Nephilim and Alkins. - Lynn Worton

ARC kindly provided by Mary Ting in exchange for an honest review. Review I was so excited for 'Eternity'! It's the fourth and final instalment in the 'Crossroads Saga' and after traveling on this journey since book one, I was eager to find out how it would all go down. I had complete cover-lust for this novel! 'Eternity's cover was absolutely romantic and beautiful and phenomenal! I loved the colours and the general design. I also really admired how the meadow of wheat in which Claudia and Michael stand in was the same one used in book one, 'Crossroads'. It was kind of like "it will all end where it started". I was absolutely enchanted with the start of the novel! There was such a nice surprise that I think it ruined me for any other works in this series. I was SO happy for Claudia and Michael! I liked how well the last novel linked to the spin-off series 'The Angel Knights'! 'Eternity' is written in third person narration and follows multiple character perspectives from minor ones, like Austin and Dantanian, to our main leads', Michael and Claudia. The transition from one character to another was something that should be worked on. I think that it was a bit confusing at times as there were so many quick changes but I liked the fact that the author tried to include so many different views. The chemistry between Claudia and Michae was SINCERELY and UTTERLY OFF THE CHARTS. Seriously, people, if you're in for some clearly implied hot/heavy/sexy scenes that do not actually delve into the...arghm...action...than pick up the 'Crossroads Saga'! With that all said, I'd strongly recommend this novel to a higher young-adult audience. Some of the scenes would just destroy the poor innocent minds of twelve to fourteen year olds. The writing also contained too much telling and not enough showing. There were moments when the author would point out the most obvious of situations which I believe they didn't need to be. I would also doubt the love of Michael and Claudia because they would tell the other "I love you" sooooo many times and it would just become too overused. There were so many special moments for me that I felt were just less for me due to that. I would strongly recommend that the author concentrate more on subtle character actions such as body language. I believe this would REALLY and SIGNIFICANTLY impact the quality of her work. The story took a little time getting on its feet and then finally rolling around to the climax of the plot. It dragged on for the first half and I didn't entirely understand why. When it did roll around a little more than halfway through the novel, I loved it. The battle scenes and the general "chaos" scenes that most action-genred novels include were done a WHOLE lot better than the author's first attempts at those. I really enjoyed following the authors progress and maturity as an author. There were a few formatting issues in the novel. At the end of some chapter an unnecessary blank page was left. It was easy to ignore but it ruined the general appeal of actually reading the paperback. There were NO typos or spelling mistakes that I could spot in my reading copy, which was fantastic! Grammar was good, yet the prose could have still been worked on a little. I can't wait for the spinoff series! The ending of 'Eternity' wrapped everything up quite well and allowed for a great connection between the 'Crossroads Saga' and the 'Angel Knights' series!

A Fitting End to My Favorite Angel Saga I was so excited to be able to read Eternity but it is bittersweet knowing that this is the last book in the Crossroads Saga Series.  Reading this is like welcoming old friends back home. Claudia & Michael have found happiness together or so it would seem until someone from Michael’s past comes back to wreak havoc in their lives.  I love the twists and turns the storyline takes which allows you a look into Michael’s past. Without giving anything away I love the new “additions” to the Crossroads family. Eternity as in the other books in the series teaches you that all things are possible with love and perseverance.   It truly teaches you that Love & Friendship has no boundaries. Mary Ting is an amazing author and you can tell that she writes from the heart. I have found a friend and I believe that “our” angels have brought us together. I am not just a fan and I consider her to be a friend and she is indeed my Angel Butterfly Sister. I hope everyone will read the entire series and I promise you that you will fall in love with it too. It’s hard for me to say goodbye to it so I will just say “see you when I see you.”

I have been waiting for this book and I finally have it! What can I say? Words escape me. Painting a beautiful picture with your words, Mary Ting… again you did it girl; you wrote a beautiful, passionate, true love,  true friendship story. Everything from this series was astounding and beautifully written…a page turner. Grab the tissue box because Mary Ting has touched our hearts again with yet another incredible story. From beginning to end I was just lost in the characters and their moments. Once again Michael’s & Claudia’s love is in jeopardy. Crossroads Saga continues and this time Michael’s past comes back to haunt him.  Dantanian, a fallen angel and an old friend  but now an enemy of Michael wants him back on his side and will do anything to make him go back to being who he was,  even if it means hurting his love ones.  Michael, Claudia and the whole gang are at it again, fighting fallen angels…lots of action going on here. Love really has no boundaries when it comes to Claudia and Michael, their love is for Eternity. A great ending to a perfect series! It saddens me to know that this is the end, but none the less it was one amazing ride.                                                                                                 “Multiply my love by infinity and take it to the depths of forever, and you still have only a glimpse of how I feel for you.  I love you more.” (Michael to Claudia)
