Becoming

Free read ✓ Becoming 105 Read & Download ↠ PDF, eBook or Kindle ePUB free ✓ Raine Thomas As her eighteenth 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 familyTo top it all off she’ll finally find out why she’s. Daughters of Serouel follows Amber a 17 year old foster child who lives with her guardian and brother Gabriel Amber is not a normal teenager every three years she has an incident which is best described as a surge of power with Amber at the apex As Amber approaches her 18th birthday she and Gabriel are on alert for her next incident as they have been getting stronger as she agesI am not giving away much but saying that Amber is not entirely human It turns out Amber is a product of a human mother and an Estilorian father What are Estilorians They are powerful long lived beings that used to roam the earth with humans but now live on a different plane of existence Amber and her two sisters the daughters of an Estilorian named Saraael have grown up on earth for their protection While most of the Estilorians believe that the daughters of Saraael are a miracle Estilorians don t really procreate they just create there is a subset the Mercesti who wants to see them deadConfused yet I m just getting started The Estilorians are split up into factions or tribes based on their abilities or not There are Mercesti Elphresti Orculesti Corgloresti Waresti Scultresti Lekwuesti and Wymzesti Of course since every time I saw the word Estilorians I thought of Estonians and several of these names sound like variations of common Polish names I kept imagining a race of northern and eastern Europeans Some of these factions are based on abilities for example the Orculesti are mind readers communicators and the Wymzesti are prognostic Some of them are not the Mercesti are merely the group of Estilorians who think that the daughters of Saraael should be killed I had hard time making sense of this tribal division and an even harder time accepting that each faction has its own eye color and if for example a Orculesti decides to become a Mercesti his or her eye color would change to match the Mercesti Personally I hate these complicated otherworldly societies The Estilorian factions reminded me of many of the angel books I ve read that classify angels into various groups with almost eually annoying names with different skill and powers I know a lot of people like books with this type of set up it just isn t for meWhile I m on a rant about the names surely I can t be the only person who thinks that Saraael is awfully close in name to the anti psychotic Serauel Amber and her two sisters eventually meet Of the three of them one is described as strong willed responsible loyal and a fighter one as a caring nature loving intellectual and one as an outgoing free spirit I ll bet you can t guess which one of those three is the oldest and which is the youngest The descriptions reminded me of the three Halliwell sisters from Charmed before Paige replaced PheobeDespite all my criticisms I did not hate this book I just didn t like it The story is very well paced and has the appropriate amount of action and suspense The love story is believable and not forced at all The characters are decently fleshed out and despite my personal feelings towards the world building it is well doneMy only other criticism is broader than just this book but I would like to know when better than her or than her after any other comparative verb became grammatically acceptable I can definitely see why some like and even love this book it just wasn t for me and I won t be reading the rest of the trilogy

Free read ✓ Becoming 105 Read & Download ↠ PDF, eBook or Kindle ePUB free ✓ Raine Thomas Having the power surges she isn’t entirely humanAmber 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 lifeKind of makes the explosions now seem like a cakewal. When it comes to Young Adult Fantasy it really doesn t get better than Becoming To say that I was blown away would be an understatement I wasn t just blown away I was swept away I loved everything about Becoming It was charming fresh innovative World building at it s finest Truly a beautifully crafted story with lovely characters settings raw emotion and a powerful message In this book love truly does conuer all And I m not only talking about romantic love but love for one s self and for our fellow man There is an underlying theme in this book that without respect love and understanding you really can t go anywhere in life And I really loved itThe romance in this story was incredibly refreshing There are no love triangles No instantaneous love The love shared between the main characters Amber and Gabriel is a love that is nurtured overtime grown out of mutual respect and admiration They are friends first and fall in love later The only hurdles in this love story are the personal insecurities and doubts of each character rooted in their complex backgrounds The love in this story felt very real and it was very sweet Amber who is the female lead in this book is a very strong young woman who is unassuming and very funny Her main struggle being her general distrust of others due to not having a stable home for most of her childhood and being moved across several foster care homes for most of her life Gabriel the male lead in this book is of a gentle spirit strong but comfortable around others He is a true gentleman and really is the perfect balance to Amber s distant nature I loved that Amber and Gabriel felt very real the dialogue for both of these characters was incredibly believable and truly authentic to how people sound like in their late teensWhen it comes to world building I thought that Becoming shined Why because it was really creative intelligent and complex In Becoming instead of having angels fairies vampires or wolves we have a new type of being introduced to us They are called The Estilorians In this book the humans are not aware of their existence even though at some point in time humans and Estilorians shared the world The difference between the two being that Estilorians have a slight different appearance special powers and react different to emotion while humans don t have any special powers and are emotional beings Eventually The Estilorians have to separate themselves from the humans and become the stuff of what human myth and legend is based upon And from here on the book delves and centers itself around the myth about the daughters of Saraael an Estilorian and we soon discover new truths about our main characters the Estilorian world and people and their battlesBut above all my favorite part of Becoming is it s study on emotion Each character in the book has a very particular personality and struggle Whether it is being too distrusting too logical or too fearful and when you add the lack of emotion that characterize the Estilorians you have yourself a uite fascinating read on how the lack or excess of emotion can affect any culture human or not Also I felt like this book centers around how dangerous the fear of the unknown can get How it can devolve into cruelty coldness and jealousy even And considering how fleshed out each character in this book is both primary and secondary characters the reader soon finds themselves absolutely captivated and invested in each characters emotional struggle and journey to overcome what main issue plagues themI definitely can t wait to read about Olivia and Skye s journey in book two and three in the Daughters of Saraael series Because like Amber and Gabriel they were also uite interesting and lovely characters to read about itMy advice Read this book It has everything you want in a Young Adult fantasyromance novel It is packed with adventure love creativity insight and humour Becoming is truly captivating from start to finishMy Rating 55
