Anna Strong is headed for Mexico as a favor for her old boss. What she thinks she is doing is tracking down a rogue vampire, she gets more than she bargained for when she gets tangled back up with Chael, head of the middle eastern vampire council. To save himself he dangles the one thing that he knows Anna wants, the key to her humanity back. There is just one problem; it requires Frey and an incredible sacrifice. Thus begins their journey of discovery and hardship that will change Anna forever.
I have followed the Anna Strong series since the first book The Becoming and I just love the character Anna. She has grown so much from the beginning and I believe she is finally coming into her own in Crossroads. What a great title. I don't think they could have picked a better one. As always, Ms. Stein describes things to the reader in great detail, making you feel like you are there in the story. I must say I love, love the time Frey has in this novel. I have always rooted for the two to get together, even throw they each have other people they are dating. I wished that these two would get together by the end, because I am very much in favor of a Frey and Anna teaming. They just complement each other so well. There were some surprises that I wasn't expecting, like Frey having a son and the incredible choices that have to be made. Make no mistake Anna is growing into what she could become and it is good to see. If you love strong female leads then this series is for you. Give Ms. Stein a try, I promise you won't regret it.
