BECOME~Book One in Desolation Series by Ali Cross~Book Review


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, Loki, 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.

Reviewed by: Kathryn Jenkins

Ali Cross takes a spin off the Norse gods mythology, creating a new take bringing them into the modern era. Cross creates a beautiful world touched with deep darkness that brings out her strong characters.

The character building is empowering allowing each character to expand and change in negative or positive light. Cross is by far a master of fight scenes leaving you craving for the next blow, and gasping as you yourself feel the pain of the attacks. The heartache leaves you cringing hoping for the best, knowing a happy ending must be coming. 

But as all great authors do…they love to leave a twist at the end making you hunger for book two. I for one am strongly in love with Greek, Egyptian and Norse mythology. Cross’s take on the battles and victories Loki and Odin have are exciting to the core. 

If you are a strong lover of Percy Jackson and the Olympians you find yourself at home in this book. This novel is more for the new adult audiences bringing a more mature nature to the sins mankind face under Loki’s watchful eye. But I trust know matter what your age you will find enjoyment from “Become” the first in Ali Cross’s Desolation Series.
