Become by Ali Cross | Book Review #13

‘Sixteen-year-odl Desolation Black wants nothing more than to stay in Hell where it’s cold and lonely and totally predictable. Instead, she’s sent back to Earth where she mist face the evil she despises and the good she always feared.

When Desi is forced to embrace her inner demon, she assumes her choice has been made–that she has no hope of being anything other than what her father, Lucifer, has created her to be. What she doesn’t count on, is finding a reason to change–something she’s never had before–a friend.’

I first read Become a few years ago but since I’ve recently reread it, I thought “Why not review it?” There are a few scenes that stick out in my mind. Rereading Become was really interesting, because I’d actually forgotten a lot of the key components to the story. Like how the main character, Desolation, has to overcome some serious stuff.

Desolation, known as Desi to her friends, doesn’t really know where she fits in with the worlds. All she has ever known is that she’s the daughter of Lucifer, and with being the daughter of the big bad wolf, she knows that there are some serious stuff she has to do. And Desi really doesn’t like doing that. She would rather stay in her room, listen to music and read. Or train.

When she’s forced to go topside; aka, Earth, Desi doesn’t want to go. Because going or leaving between worlds means Desi has to go through the Remembering and Desi hates that. She doesn’t want the emotions to go with Remembering.

Unfortunately or fortunately for Desi, she has one friend she know’s she’ll see when she gets to Earth. And that relationship means everything to Desi.

Become is a great short read and if you like stories with the Angels and Demons complex than I suggest this book to you! I also cried while reading this book, and if you know me at all, its a big deal that I cried while reading. No joke.

I have to say that even the story in this first book moves pretty quickly. There were some parts to Become that just felt rehearsed and forced. And there were quite a few parts that were just too dramatic for me..

Become is an ebook trilogy and I would really recommend the Desolation trilogy to you!

Thank you for reading. Until next time,
