Spoiler free review
Crossing the Barrier was a very interesting read. Being a mix of YA, Romance and Fantasy, it had a bit of everything ranging from your typical high school drama to paranormal activities. From a dysfunctional family to a protective boyfriend. The book has a mix of emotions such as love, friendship ,betrayal, heartbreak and of course, fair share of mysteries.
Lewis has done a wonderful job with the plot and the characters although the characters seem a bit off as I think they were a little too matured for their age. I definitely have a lot of questions which were not answered in this book and I hope they are cleared in the upcoming ones. I am very impatiently waiting for the next release. All in all, I really enjoyed reading the book and would definitely recommend you to read this book.
If you are interested then the book is available in Amazon for purchase. Happy reading. Enjoy!
