Crossroads and the Himalayan Crystals has a wonderful formula that can’t fail in a fantasy story, and C. Toni Graham pulls it off perfectly! It’s an adventure novel filled with heroes, villains, a hint of romance, encouraging self-esteem and confidence. There is something for everyone!Teens Connor, Seneca, Jake and Shayna are thrown together after accidentally crossing through a portal to what they discover to be known as the “ Otherworld “, the Realm of Fionia.

Exploring a strange land , facing magic and creatures they had merely read in fairytales, they are dragged into a power struggle between one of their tutors, Ms. Bridget and the elementals that reside in this strange, new world. The foursome reveal hidden truths about their families, newfound powers, and a bonding among friends that only near-death adventure can bring.The author goes to great lengths to showcase her artistic flair in this teen/ YA novel. C. Toni Graham’s description of the characters is accurate and realistic, especially in the thought process. The plot may seem a little predictable ( a face-off as a conclusion is inevitable ) but there are several intriguing developments and the promise of a sequel is exciting. I admire the ingenuity of the alternate story world, especially the whole elemental concept and Druid storyline. Together, this makes for an exciting read and a pleasant escape.I think Seneca is my favourite character, solely because of her personal self- discovery, but the journey the four of them undertake is inspiring for their age.There was no tangible negative thing about Crossroads and the Himalayan Crystals. Therefore, I rate it 5 out of 5 stars. I am looking forward to more stories and the continuation of the Crossroads series. I would definitely recommend this book to any fan of YA fiction, including adults, who will find the discovery of a whole different world fascinating. ( )

Crossroads and the Himalayan Crystals is an exciting adventure for four students, Jake, Conner, Seneca, and Shayna. These four get put together by their biology teacher to obtain samples when they unknowingly stumble into the realm of Fiona. Together they embark on a journey where they come across magical creatures while trying to find a portal to get back home. This is a beautifully written story about friendship. This is fast read with shorter chapters that leave you wanting more. YA audience but honestly can be enjoyed by many readers and a great introduction if you are new to the fantasy genre. ( )

For me the dialogue and characters are what made Crossroads and the Himalayan Crystals a most enjoyable read. The fact that I forgot I was reading a book at times shows just how absorbed by it all I was. Sometimes the elements that make up a good book can all seem to be there but somehow it still doesn’t click together, but this was a book that, for me, excelled in all areas.

Author Graham’s writing skills are so polished that the various characters she creates become tangible and credible, and begin to feel like you’re actual friends. Not only is the story quite solid, but the issues she creates for her fine characters are significant and challenging that kept me gripped throughout. This is a fine novel for the YA audience and beyond. Highly recommended. ( )

Crossroads and the Himalayan Crystals is the first part of the fantasy series Crossroads. This is a story of four friends, Jake, Conner, Seneca, and Shayna. One fine day when they were all at school is transported to another realm. This magical realm is full of fascinating mystical creatures and elements.

The fantasy realm into which they were transported, where a familiar ever-present conflict between good and evil forces them to endure an adventure fraught with danger at almost every turn. So they are forced to follow the demands of an evil Druid or risk jeopardising the welfare of their loved ones and the magical individuals with whom they've made friends.

I liked the flow of the story very much. Character development was perfect. The author did an excellent job of creating a world with supernatural elements while also ensuring that the characters were realistic and flawed. It's an entertaining book with twists and turns. I am very much looking forward to reading the second part of the series. ( )

Crossroads and the Himalayan Crystals by C. Toni Graham is an entertaining tale of four teenagers who shift into a magical, mystical dimension called the "Otherworld”. A magical realm full of fantastical creatures where all is not as it seems, and the protagonists soon find themselves in great danger with many enemies who want to destroy them.

I absolutely love the imagination of the author, with such a creativity and entertainment within these pages. I really enjoyed the world the author created, and the characters are all complete individuals, well-rounded and engaging. Even the secondary characters they interact with are pretty good, with none of the predictability and cliche that you find in some fantasy novels. This is an excellent read, with heaps of adventure, excitement, and intrigue. ( )
