Monday's Muse~Become

Last week my inspiration was a fantastic read. You know the feeling when your heart pounds from the words, you clutch a book tighter, and flip eagerly through the pages? The book I just finished reading elicited such a feeling. It is BECOME, by Ali Cross. At first glance this book appears to be a tale about the daughter of Lucifer, but it is so very much more than that. It is actually about the daughter of Loki and is a beautiful blend of mythology and religion. It surprised and delighted me. Here is my review:

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. The author has made a fan for life of me.

My review is short, I know, but alas, I’m not a reviewer, I’m a writer. Just trust me and add this to your to read list. I’d recommend it for older YA (or mature) and adults. There is some difficult subject matter.

Become on Amazon and B&N (also available at other retailers).

Be sure to check the post below for a great cover reveal for a sequel that I've really been looking forward to!

  1. I have the book. Unfortunately my TBR pile is still huge, but I know Ali is hard at work with the sequel, so I'm aiming to read it closer to the release date so that I can jump right into the sequel when it comes out. I love Norse mythology, so it's a definite must read for me.

    1. I love Norse mythology too and I was pleasantly surprised when it turned out to be about that and not so much religion.
