Rating: 5 out of 5 stars
*I received this book from the author in exchange for an honest review.
Wow. Just wow. Ali Cross has created an elaborate world blended from fable and reality with engaging characters that not only stole my heart, but left me wanting more.
Desolation Black is hell spawn and I mean literally as in Lucifer’s daughter. She plays the part as minimally as possible. She tries to appease her father’s wishes, all but one. No matter how hard he tries to push her to Become, she refuses. That tiny sliver of humanity she holds on to for dear life, the spark within her, means too much to her for her to embrace her demon side.
With her father growing increasingly impatient with his heir, he forces her out of the safety of Hell and into the unknown of Earth. This place of feeling and remembering scares Desi more than any part of Hell ever could. But her father always gets his way, assuring her it’s for her own good that she will learn to be a better demon among the human sinners.
It is not the sinners or the darkness her father’s pawns that scares her the most. It is the one boy that could be her greatest downfall and the girl that needs a friend more than she needs one of her own. Because once she Becomes, how will she be able to save all she loves when she will be their greatest danger?
Become is a wonderfully heartbreaking and captivating story. It will pull at your heartstrings and have you cheering the characters on to the very end. I am madly in love this series and Ms. Cross’s style of writing. I can’t wait to start Desolate and continue their quest
