After I read The Crossroads and loved it, I started looking for other books by the same author and came across The Hanging Hill by Chris Grabenstein, the sequel to The Crossroads. This suspenseful mystery/adventure book is a good companion to the original. Readers could enjoy this book with or without reading The Crossroads first, but I think the book would be enjoyed most if it was read after The Crossroads. I really liked how each chapter was told by someone else, even if all of these narrators didn't make sense early on in the story. Every narrator told bits and pieces of the story and they all came together at the end.
