Cross My Heart Review

To save her humanity, Sloane must sacrifice what’s in her heart.

When she became a vampire, Sloane gave up the life she once knew, never thinking she would have the opportunity to reclaim it. But with Paris’s groundbreaking medical discovery comes a complicated web of secrets, betrayal, and lies, and Sloane learns her greatest battle is only just beginning.

Frost rules the underground city with an iron fist while anarchy breaks out in the White Sectors above as full-out war wages between the humans, the Scarlet Guard, and the Black Cross Guild. As her best friend Leo grows more distant – and closer to his protégé Arika – the decision to leave it all behind presses deeper on Sloane’s heart.

At the crux of the rising tension within the vampire city, a horrific event forces Sloane, Aden, and the others to run for their lives, driving them into treacherous underground passages that haven’t been traveled in centuries. As Sloane battles the rising demon within, she uncovers more about her heritage along the journey, including a frightening secret about the fate of the first king – a fate that could very well be her own.

As she falls deeper in love with the enigmatic Aden Knight, Sloane has to come to terms that what’s in her heart may not be what’s best for her – and ultimately – mankind. But could she ever walk away from the one man who means everything to her?

Loyalties will be tested, hearts will be broken, and no one’s lives will ever be the same.


OMG!! I am an emotional wreck over this book, and I say that in a good way! This book has brought so many amazing feelings out of me, it was just so freaking AMAZING! Krystle Jones, the wonderful author,  has managed to pull so many different emotions out of me, its just MIND BLOWING!!! That's the only words I can think that would even begin to do this book justice!!! AMAZING, FREAKING AMAZING!!!!

This book has literally brought me weak in the knees in more then a couple occasions! It was just....So...I can't even find the words to describe this book. But I'll try.

Cross My Heart had so much depth and emotion, that I was crying in so many different parts. I was screaming, and breathless , and shaking, and biting all my nails off, and in awe. It was just a roller coaster if ups and downs, and I wouldn't change a single thing about it! It was so action-packed from start to finish and it never let up! And that's the kind of books that I love. When a book can keep going and going and doesn't feel like it overdoing its self, then yeah, its definitely doing something right! Krystle evened everything out, but still kept it packed with a little of everything. I have been invested in this series since the beginning, and with each book that released, it has just gotten better and better. Krystle built suspense, action, drama, pain, heartache, love, emotion, betrayals, death and so much more with each book, that when this last book came, it just EXPLODED!! This is honestly Krystle Jones's best work yet, and honestly, I don't see how she could ever top Cross My Heart! But, I remember saying that with the last books too, so Krystle just might surprise me with her next series! This series has definitely left tracks in my heart and has claimed a part of me forever! Thank You Krystle, for giving me such an heart-throbbing experience with this series,


Sloane has endured so much since that long time ago traveling to The Red Sector, from the safety of her home in The White Sector! She was sheltered and naïve to what was really out there, and what people where really  capable of. She has been through it all. You name it, she endured it, or at least watch someone she loved go through it. And after all the pain, heartache, and death, Sloane has endured, she has not let it break her. No, she has allowed it to manifest inside her, and make her stronger. With each new book, Sloane grew, and became so much more then I ever thought  she would be. She is the true definition of a hero! Now, only if she was real...lol! But her lessons are real, her pure heart is real, her bravery and determination, is what keeps us going!

War is harsh and on the horizons, and if they thought they were in war before, then they haven't seen anything yet, as Frost rises in power, and turns lives into a living hell. Blood will bath the streets of both the underground and aboveground Cities. War is a definite, but who will survive and be the last ones standing is what is unsure, as Frost claims lives of humans, vampires, rogues, and even innocent children. She will hold nothing back as she quickly climbs the latter to power, killing everyone in her way, and all that rebels against her.
Sloane and her friends are strong, but not strong enough to take on all of Frost's militia, the guard, and the blackcross aboveground. But they will fight back with everything they got until only one side is left standing, hopefully her side. But her allies are not as strong as Frost's, or so she thought until Sloane's heritage is finally revealed, and all she's yearned to know about who she really is, is brought to the surface. And she is finally given the answers to who, or "What" she is. And what she finds out could very well tip the tides, and give them the manpower and skill to take down Frost, and all that threatens humanity!
The battle is here, the vampires and humans are fighting back. One side will fail, as these different creatures battle it to the death, in The Red Sector. Sloane just wants it to end. Wants the killing to stop, wants peace back on earth, wants vampires and humans to be as one. Wants all the pain and suffering to go away. Sloane is willing to fight with all she has to beat the ones hell bent on bring the demise to earth and all the walks on it. But the price is great, and if she wants to save humanity, she will have to fight for not only her life, but the lives of the ones she loves. Is she willing to put her life in danger at "chance" of winning this war against Frost and all she controls? Is she willing to give up on the cure to go and fight back? But most important, is she willing to sacrifice her friends and all the innocent bystanders to restore peace on earth, or at least what peace once was?

 Sloane's a fighter, and she's willing to go to great lengths to end the war, but is she really willing to risk all this on just a chance of winning, and not even a big chance at that? Find out in the 3rd and final book in The Red Sector Chronicles. It will leaving you breathless, shaking, and demanding more, while your heart brakes, then sews itself back up, as you watch the battle play out like you would on the big screen. That's how vivid, and descriptive it was! Its a finale you won't want to miss! And if you haven't read the first two books in the series, then I suggest you stop what you're doing right now and go out and get them, because you are definitely missing out! 


 (First book in the series is FREE on Amazon, get it HERE)

This is how you end a series! Krystle Jones didn't hold back in this fight to save humanity! I loved it, and I am SO SAD to see it end! I really think she should of written at least one more book. Not because it was incomplete, or their was unanswered questions. No, because I am selfish, and I don't want to say goodbye to my one of my favorite series EVER!!! Call me what'cha want, but hen I find something I love as much as I love The Red Sector Chronicles, I want to hold on to it, and never let go, at least for a very long time!!  But I guess I'll survive, (If I have to, Krystle?) Hint, Hint...lol?

I will read this series from years to come, and I will still feel every single emotion that I felt the first time around! It's just that well written! The Red Sector Chronicles, "
