Publisher's Summary

Optioned for movie rights by multiple-award winning producer Chase Chenowith of Back Fence Productions.

Every three years, Amber Hopkins explodes. Okay, not a blown-to-smithereens explosion, but whatever it is always hurts like hell and leaves her life a shambles. She's already worked her way through five foster placements, and she's doing whatever she can to avoid getting blasted into a sixth.

As her 18th birthday approaches and she feels the strange and powerful energy building, disaster looms. When the inevitable explosion occurs, her life gets its biggest shakeup yet. She'll not only learn how her fellow foster and best friend, Gabriel, really feels about her, but she'll discover that she isn't really without family.

To top it all off, she'll finally find out why she's having the power surges: she isn't entirely human.

Amber must Become, transitioning to another plane of existence and risking the loss of the most important relationship she's ever had. Her choice will impact the future of an entire race of beings, and will pit her against an enemy that will prey upon her doubt to try and take her very life.

Kind of makes the explosions now seem like a cakewalk.

    "Not what I expected"

    I'm still pretty new to audible and it takes some getting used to. I had difficulty keeping up with names at first. The story was great, I love a good live story! Totally different experience listen to it instead of reading it!

    "Great Story!"

    I enjoyed listening to this book during my commutes. It had a great storyline and the narrator did a wonderful job. Sometimes it seemd like there was a bit too much detail to the more trivial things (i.e. the surroundings, actions of the characters) in my opinion. Overall it was an awesome book and would absolutely recommend. Can't wait to read/listen to the rest of the series!

    "True Love Story"

    i kind of wish I had more story of Amber and Gabriel growing up cause that love story was so sweet but I understand why we moved on.

    I will say I got confused at times with all the names and what was going on once they got to where they were going so I had to rewind it.

    All in all I loved the romance part of it and am intrigued to see where it goes from here with the story line

    "Becoming"

    I loved the story and the voice of the narrator. The story was unique and didn't have any of the silly love triangle stuff of now days which was refreshing! Looking forward to reading and listening to the rest of the series!

    "Started well....."

    the narrator was fantastic. the story started well and was difficult to follow near the end. if i had not promised a fair review, i would not have finished the book. the storyline was interesting, but there were too many people to follow. i couldnt keep up.

    "Great book editing needs work."

    I loved this book. It was a well thought out story that kept me engaged and waiting for more. The reading was fine, but you could tell where they edited the narrative as the volume was not even close and it was distracting. Still I recommend the book.

    ":-)"

    Interesting story that illustrates the struggle of a girl brought up in the foster system and discovering that she is not human.

    Enjoyed the narrator. I normally have to "speed them up", but felt she had a good speed. She also had good voices for the characters.

    "Hmm..."

    I love the story and the narrator; however, the volume fluctuates from high to low often and it is very annoying! 😣
