Ali Cross Blog Tour of BECOME + GIVEAWAY


BECOME
by Ali Cross


Goodreads Blurb:
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.
This book is every bit as awesome as its cover! Wow, wow, wow!! I absolutely LOVED this story. Ali did a fantastic job with characterization, which is especially impressive considering how many key players there are. Desi is alive--she lives and breathes on the pages. And Michael?? Let's just say, I want one! He is *sigh* perfect.

I have NO IDEA how this book slipped through the fingers of the supposed experts, because it should have been scooped up in a heartbeat. I would rank this story up there with Angel Fire and Paranormalcy. It's THAT good!!

Ali has generously agreed to give away
one paperback copy of BECOME.

Love the premise. Love the cover. Thought for sure it was traditionally published. maybe there was just too many angel/demon stories at the time!

That cover is awesome!!!!!!!!!! Great review, Shannon. :D

Joanna said...

Thanks for introducing us to Become. It sounds like a very enthralling read. I love good vs evil, heaven vs hell stories. It's cool how there is a role reversal in Become. Usually in YA, the demon is a male role. Reading from Desi's POV will be interesting. I'll be looking forward to this debut.
I agree... the cover is amazing. Purple and black are my favorite combination of colors.
