Book Review: The Lost Town of Man’s Crossing

Title: The Lost Town of Man’s Crossing

Author: Katrina Hart



Would you cross a land of magic, dark creatures and hidden secrets to face your own deepest fear?

After being shot, Suzy and her friend, Bill, are offered a second chance at life in The Lost Town Of Man’s Crossing, a land to which the chosen few are transported by their personal Crossing Creatures. There, Suzy encounters the evil Cole, who is all-out to gain the highest power of the land.

But Suzy comes from a magical family: her grandmother, Miss Hollow, founded a coven called Hollow-Wings, and her grandfather left her a secret, life-changing pouch. Soon, Cole craves that secret pouch more than anything.

It’s Suzy versus Cole – and one of them has met their match.

My Review

5/5 Stars

I was drawn in by the beautiful cover, and when I started reading, I was not disappointed.

When the story opens, we’re introduced to a girl named Suzy who is visiting someone in the hospital. It’s not long until she’s transported from the world she knows to one she does not. One filled with life-threatening creatures out for her blood. In the new world, she finds a few people willing to help her, most notably the love interest Bill. Suzy fights against the evil Erebus while guarding a gift left by her granddad that puts her into the most danger.

This is a unique fantasy with easy to relate to characters. They each had unique personalities which made it even easier to connect with and root for them to win. I especially liked Suzy. Her down to earth approach made the story flow smoothly. Her character growth was especially notable, not just magic-wise, but her thoughts and feelings toward those around her as well.

I thought the entire metaphor of the story was clever as well. “Man’s Crossing” is the boundary between life and death, and I loved the hint of paranormal that this concept introduced to the rest of the story.

There are a lot of ups and downs in the book, with plenty of fantastic worldbuilding and plenty of wonderful characters. I would definitely recommend this read to fans of fantasy, paranormal romance, or romance in general.

Proud author responsible for Dead by Morning and The Council, fascinated by the dark and macabre. Stephen King is her all time inspiration mixed in with a little bit of Eminem and some faint remnants of the works of Edgar Allen Poe. When she began writing, she started in horror but it somehow drifted into thriller. She loves the 1988 movie Heathers. She was born and raised in Michigan but traveled across the country to where she currently resides in Texas.
