IE Reviews~Become

It’s time for another non-Indie Elite member (but fabulous indie author) short review. This week’s review is of Become by Ali Cross.

My thoughts:
This novel was not at all what I thought it would be, and that’s a very good thing. I was expecting another angels and demons book and was honestly kind of dreading it because I already have my favorite angels and demons book (Lacrimosa of course) and I feared I wouldn’t like another nearly as much. Well angels and demons this was NOT. It’s actually a brilliant meld of Norse legend (which I completely love) and angels and demons. My official blurb on it:

From the depths of Helheim to the lofts of Asgard, this novel propels us on a breathtaking journey of self-sacrifice and redemption. The author takes characters that should be impossible to sympathize with and makes you fall in love with them. I was completely swept away and utterly surprised at how much I enjoyed this story.

Here is the Goodreads blurb on it:

Sixteen-year old 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 must 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.

You can find it here:

Goodreads, B&N, Amazon

And the sequel, Desolate just released on Amazon!
