* I received a free copy of this audiobook in exchange for an honest review.
I was not sure what to expect from this audiobook. The descriptive blurb intrigued me and I decided to give it a chance. I am glad I did. I enjoyed the mixture of genres that are included in this book.
This book combines paranormal fiction with science fiction and mystery all in a Young Adult friendly novel.
Mirissa Colson’s mother left for work one morning, twelve years ago, and never returned.
Now, on Mirissa’s eighteenth birthday, a package arrives from her mother. Mirissa is of course both intrigued and repelled. Does she really want anything from the woman who so callously left her husband and six year old daughter?
What Mirissa discovers is that she is not just an average teenager, in fact she is descended from an ancient line of Amazon women and it is her destiny to fight and defeat evil.
Mirissa’s gift was an Amazon ring. Her mother sent it to her and now must learn what her powers are and exactly what the ring can do.
Of course, no story would be complete without the requisite bad guy. In CROSSFIRE the bad guy is an evil genius.
There are battles, teen angst, Amazon warriors, good versus evil elements and of course a budding romance. What more can readers want?
CROSSFIRE is a young adult novel. There are many elements to the story that listeners will enjoy. There is a bad guy who is set to take over the world and it is Mirissa’s destiny to stop him.
Melissa Chatwood narrates this book with evident skill. There are a lot of characters in this book and it would have been easy for listeners to become confused, but Melissa navigates through the characters with ease. The listener is able to immerse herself in the story. I give the narration 5 out of 5 stars.
I rate this audiobook as 4 out of 5 stars ⭐⭐⭐⭐
