I actually won a KINDLE copy of this book from the author through a giveaway she had on and the following is my honest opinionGiven all of the Christian and other genre books I’ve been reading and reviewing recently I found this book by C Toni Graham to be a refreshing and enjoyable change The fantasy genre this book belongs allows readers to escape the mundane existence they live in and be transported to a realm where phantasmagorical occur on a regular basis One thing is usually certain in stories where the protagonists in this case Conner Jake Seneca and Shayna accidentally enter a portal get transported into an alternative universalrealm where the portal closes immediately behind leaving them trapped with no apparent means of returning back home and Ms Graham doesn’t disappoint her readers in this regard And what brought these protagonists to be thrown into this situation had been their science teacher Ms Bridget who had sent them and their classmates into a nearby park to gather various bits of elements with them assigned to gather mossThe fantasy realm in which they got transported into where there is a familiar ever present conflict between good and evil forcing them to endure an adventure that fraught with danger at practically every turn; where they wind up being forced to follow the demands of an evil Druid or chance jeopardizing their loved one’s welfare and those of the magical individuals they’ve made friends withMs Graham’s writing adds a uniueness to what might have been an ordinary storyline by capturing her reader’s interests and keeping it to the end with a page turning story Will good triumph over the evil which exists in the realm of Fionia or will the deadly magical war continue? Will our four protagonists return to the human world safely or will they accept their fate as the defenders of the Otherworld with the magical they’ve acuired since arriving in the realm of Fionia?For having given her readers in this first installment of a two part saga I’ve given this book and its author Ms Graham 5 STARS Crossroads and the Himalayan Crystals by C Toni Graham is a TeenYA book but I’m way past that age and I thoroughly enjoyed it Four classmates Jake Conner Seneca and Shayna are on a school assignment when they’re transported into the Realm of Fionia a strange yet lovely place where magical creatures dwell and adventure and danger abound I loved the characters so well written and their developing friendship I found myself cheering them on throughout their journey It’s a fun read with twists and turns and surprises I’m excited to read the next book in the series Highly recommend 5 absolutely fantastic stars What an epic ride This is first rate fantasy and I would highly recommend this to anyone who loves mysticism and fairytales The author transports us to a magical land with intriguing magical elements and creatures C Toni Graham's writing is perfect with just the right amount of description and emotion And this was an emotional story At its core this tale is about friendship What an excellent cast of characters to spend some time with Conner Jake Seneca and Shayna were all uniue and interesting in their own way They are just the right group to go on this adventure with I thought the author did a wonderful job crafting the world and keeping the magical elements but also making sure the characters were real and flawed Now to get my eager hand on the next book in the series While working on a field assignment for a tyrannical biology teacher four teens find themselves transported to another realm called “The Otherworld” With the lives of their loved ones at risk the group must navigate this unknown territory—filled with magic fairies and flying horses—to defeat an evil druidIt was impossible to read only one chapter at a time I loved that the chapters were uite short yet action packed and propelled the plot forward at a uick steady pace Definitely a page turner Additionally it was very obvious that a lot of care went into the writing editing and typesetting of this novel—it was practically flawless It’s always enjoyable to read a book that is cleanly typeset and virtually free of grammarspelling errors There are elements of Celtic mythology threaded throughout the story and non stop action from start to finish Because of this combination I would recommend this book to fans of Rick Riordan’s Percy Jackson series—including young fans who are entering the YA age bracket and are looking for a book with sophisticated vocabulary Speaking of which the vocabulary is one of my favourite parts of this book—it really is beautiful The ending set up for the second book nicely; I’m glad I already have the second one and don’t have to wait to find out what happens to the Dominion of Four⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀I’m giving this book 4 out of 5 stars because I was hoping for a little world building The primary focus was on the character development and the dialogue between the characters which are both done well I just didn’t have a clear picture in my head of “The Otherworld” as a result I was lucky to have received a signed copy of this book from the Goodreads First Reads 'giveaway' Thank you CToni GrahamCrossroads and the Himalayan Crystals was a great read and I was a bit sad to have finished it so uick so now I'm interested to read any other books by this authorThe story kept me on the edge of my seat waiting to know what was going to happen next The landscape and characters were described in such a way it was a joy to visualize and inspiring for me being an artist it made me want to draw All the characters had been well thought out and had specific roles that I imagine many readers will identify with especial those of the same age as the main charactersThe book was full of mystery and action and easy to read I particularly liked the book having lots of short chapters as it meant I could read the story in stages where a natural break in the story occurred I wished books did thisI think this book will appeal to people who like magical adventures but as one of the characters was also an Indigo Child and the subject of auras being attacked I'm sure that it will be great for young people who are aware of New Age themes A lovely book that I would recommend Beautiful cover too A sophisticated magical story that fantasy fans will devourC Toni Graham brilliantly blends realism with the world of fantasy in her YA novel Crossroad and the Himalayan Crystals This is an entertaining tale of four teenagers who shift into the Otherworld magical realm I love the realistic theme of a diverse group of friends adventurously working together to overcome evil This mystical tale is full of adventurous fun with great characters like Jake Seneca Shayna and ConnorHighly recommend I enjoyed this book from beginning to end and I was sad to finish it This is a book for any age not just young adult I will be finishing this trilogy without a doubt Crossroads and the Himalayan Crystals by C Toni Graham is geared toward the YA and teen crowd but still may appeal to anyone older as well You will thoroughly enjoy this fantasy tale as you follow a group of friends Jake Conner Seneca and Shayna These kids are well fleshed out characters each with their respective flaws some than other but all are good kids When they are transported into another realm the story changes rapidly On a school assignment they are transported to a place called Fionia where there is an abundance of magic creatures While a lovely and mystical place it is dangerous too This book is a great combination of fantasy mystery and adventure The plot keeps you engaged due to its fast pace the setting is beautiful and the characters are ones you will get attached to as well Great book and highly recommend Delightful well rounded characters in a fabulous fantasy worldClean and fun Appropriate for 5th grade and upMore of a review to come The Next Big Teen Mystical Fantasy Adventure
