Review & Giveaway: Eternity and Halo by Mary Ting

Eternity (Crossroads Saga, #4)
Synopsis for Eternity
Having happily ever after is never easy when evil lurks nearby. Now that Claudia has her memories back and her life seems to have settled down, the fallen have come out of hiding with the news about Aliah’s and his demons’ death. The fallen coming out of hiding is not a concern; there are those who want to be left alone. However, one particular fallen, Dantanian, is hungry for revenge. Being one of God’s first fallen angels, he is the evilest of his kind, known as an angel of many faces. He will do anything to get his way, even if it means forcing others to join him. And he will stop at nothing to get Michael on his side.

Dantanian will torture, kill for pleasure, and concoct evil schemes to get Michael’s attention; and once in his hands, he will try to destroy all the happiness Michael fought so hard to gain. Having no support from the Twelve, and with Claudia temporarily losing her powers, the venators and the alkins must work together once again to save their friends. As death draws near to those captured by Dantanian, will the gang reach them in time? Or will Michael return to the dark angel he once was and destroy everyone he loves?

A great conclusion to a amazing series. Seeing Michaels dark side only makes him more "human". When Claudia loses her powers it is for a surprising reason. Everything seems quiet but someone betrays the group and a fallen will do everything he can to get Michael on his side. I am very sad to see the end of this series. The author does a great job of sucking you in a making you care for everyone. The toughness, sweetness and the humor of each character is like that of a family and the "readers" have been very lucky to receive a glimpse into their lives...
Halo City: Michael's  Journey

Synopsis for Halo City
When a massive group of angels known as nephilim—half human, half angel—had been found by the Royal Council, they were taken to Halo City. Instead of cleansing the Earth with a flood, which had been done before, the Royal Council created a place just for this group of angels. While they were being taken, one of the Twelve, Aden, rebelled and convinced many of the new alkins to join his cause—to live freely among the humans and take over Crossroads.

After the fall of Aden and his followers, Michael was taken to Halo City to heal. Not only did Michael have a difficult time settling into his new environment, he had conflicting issues regarding his past. Upon meeting the alkins, one in particular, Davin, refused to give up on helping him deal with his struggles. Together, they discovered a strange being that would appear at the Crossroads at unexpected times. Souls wandering there was nothing new, but this one aged as time passed. Mystified, they both searched for answers while refraining from telling the Twelve about her. Who was this being that had enraptured Michael’s attention? And will Michael finally forgive himself and find the happiness that he yearned to have?
Purchase Link:
Halo City helps to understand Michael more and see things from his point of view. It really helped to explain things from previous books. When Michael sees Claudia as a women, what reader couldn't help but be swept away!!
I enjoyed watching the friendship that grows between Michael and Davin, Caleb, and Vivian who ultimately become like a family.
