Wow! Become is not a normal book, not a normal YA book, and after I finished reading it I understood that it's much more complex and much more obscure than others of this genre.
The story talks about Desolation Black, a girl who's name is not the only weird thing in her life. She is Lucifer's daughter. She lives in Hell surrounded by solitude, but at least her life is better than when she is on Earth. Yes, she have been to Earth and it was awful. But now, she needs to come back and face all those things that she wants to forget. Will she be able to do it? Will she find love and friendship, or will she follow her father's steps? Decisions, decisions… too many decisions!!
This book, like I said before, it's dark! really dark! The main character, Desolation (or Desi) is the Devil's daughter, so it's logic that her life is surrounded by sin, lust, and desolation. So, at the moment I started reading I was a little bit shocked for some scenes and some topics. They were too crude for me, too dark and too heart-breaking. But I forgot everything when the story caught my attention, and I couldn't stop reading until I finished. The plot is really well done, and the characters are really nice, Desi is a main character like no other, too dark, too sad, but really strong and in need of love. I loved Lucy, she is warm and lovely and I hated the all the things that happened to her (You need to read the book to understand) and for a moment I was angry to the author for doing -that-, but well, it was necessary to the plot and I was happy to see Desi with Miri, another lovely character that I really liked and… Michael. *sigh* He is awesome!!!
So, what can I say? I consider this book not just a paranormal romance book. I think that it's much more than that. This book talks about decisions and how those decisions can affect the life of more than one person. It also shows how dark and destructive can be the world when you're in bad company or when you're doing wrong. Become is a good book that teaches you the difference between right and wrong. That's just one of the reasons why I highly recommend it!
Awesome! : )
