Become: Desolation #1 | [Ali Cross]

Become: Desolation #1

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.

    Story
    "Awesome book that should be made into a movie"

    Fresh new take on angels and demons set against a backdrop of Norse mythology. Compelling characters, Buffy-like epic smack-downs, big-bad betrayals and a few apocalyptic events and you have Become. Move over Thor, Desi kicks more butt and is cooler while doing it.

    As a huge Joss Whedon fan I can say that Ali is on track to pick up the mantle.

    I highly recommend this book.

    Story
    "Women face evil in the world every day!"
    Would you listen to Become again? Why?

    I actually listened to Become twice. It left me questioning the facts or fictions in the world today and I wanted to be doubly clear how this story worked them out.


    What was one of the most memorable moments of Become?

    The female population needs an abundance of reading material with women at center stage. And Desi, the heroine, struggles with internal conflict and challenging key relationship issues. Often our parents seem like gods or angels to us when we are young and the flip-side the moment we seek our independence. Introducing her father as overbearing, yet the ultimate evil force in the universe as well is a notable example of just how difficult that relationship can be for a teen.


    What about Kelli Shane’s performance did you like?

    Thoroughly enjoyed taking this journey with Kelli Shane narrating. Her voice comes across as soothing, confident, and reassuring. Kelli adds character to the heroine herself.


    Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

    The interesting twists on Christian based literature and Norse mythology has left me questioning the origin of particular stories told in my own childhood. Were the stories I remember from childhood historical or were they fiction combined with fact? A myth or sacred narrative of a culture explains how humankind assumed their present state. So, which part is fact and which part is fiction? I would love to be able to ask the storytellers.


    Any additional comments?

    I’m a new fan of this author and looking forward to reading or listening to more of her books. The subject matter is right up my alley.
