Unaware of the powers lurking within her, Caitlin opens a door between worlds, allowing a fallen angel to pass through the veil of darkness into the light.
Attaching himself to Caitlin, he feeds off her fear to build his strength, intending to kill her, in order to prevent the door through which he can be forced back into the darkness from opening.
Aware of Malfeil’s return, Ezriel, the angel who cast him down by divine order, must be the one to send him back into the darkness. He appears to Caitlin, calling upon her to ask her to help him. But between his visits—causing her to have missing time—and Malfeil doing whatever he can to frighten her, Caitlin begins to question her sanity.
Realizing what she must do, there’s just one problem. An emergency room doctor, with a penchant for house calls, believes her unstable and is seeking to have her institutionalized.
Now she must evade the doctor while seeking out Ezriel…and all before Malfeil kills her.

My rating: 3 of 5 stars
So The crossing By E H James seemed an interesting premise.
It all revolves around Caitlin a girl who after tragically losing her best friend in an accident Unwittingly opens a door between worlds attracting a fallen angel who starts to feed off her emotions.
this was a short but sweet read. I found Caitlin herself to be a likeable character and the paranormal events occurring around her were interesting to behold.
I did think Some of the secondary characters could do with a bit more fleshing out as at times they seemed a bit one-dimensional in their behaviours especially the love interest, who I really didn’t like at all.
He came across as a bit of a dick if I’m honest, some background concerning his overall decisions would maybe make him seem a much more likeable character.
I instead vote for the priest/Angel for Caitlin’s love interest, I get the impression that he’s quite a yummy Fella and he has wings so need I say more.
So the way this ended I imagine this story will be the start of a series.
It will be really interesting to see where this is going as there are endless possibilities here regarding plot direction.
So overall, This was a fascinating idea but wasn’t quite my cup of tea, though I would still say It was an alright read that could be improved upon with some fleshing out.
I was provided with an ARC of The Crossing by E.H. James of which I have reviewed voluntary.
All opinions expressed are entirely my own.
