DESOLATE (Desolation #2)

Blurb: 

Where darkness lives, all becomes desolate . . .

It’s been two months since sixteen-year-old Desolation Black chose Earth over Hell and her friend Miri over her eternal love, Michael.

Desi goes through the motions of life: school, training, remaining vigilant against the forces of darkness, but her dreams are full of the choices she wishes she could change. When she’s injured by a strange demon, old temptations arise, and the lines between good and evil blur. Desi discovers those choices aren’t so final after all.

And this time, the power of love—for a friend, for a lover—may not be enough to save her from the darkness that lurks within



MY REVIEW:

'Desolate', Book Two of Desolation, by Ali Cross continues Desolation's story as she struggles with the two sides of her inner self - light and dark! A mixture of Greek mythology, angels and demons, this paranormal story brings readers into a new realm as the sides of good and evil try to persuade Desolation to 'Become.'

Trying to understand her love for Michael and her driving need to be loved by her father, Loki, the Lord of Darkness, Desolation is caught up in a personal struggle to decide whether to follow her lighter side or to delve deeper into the darkness within her.

I  have been swept into the fantasy world of this series and have found myself caught up in Desolation's struggle to follow the path before her.

Readers who like to be entranced by the fight between good and evil and enjoy stories about Angels and Demons will find this book an interesting read.

BLURB:
Choosing is a bad idea, because Desi always makes the wrong one, and sometimes there are no do-overs. Certainly not this time, when all has been lost and Desi can’t even save herself, let alone her friends. For Desi, the hardest thing is letting someone help her, to accept their sacrifice on her behalf. But that’s exactly what she’ll have to do in order to save the worlds from Helena’s destruction.

The goddess of Helheimer, long imprisoned by Desi’s father, Loki, is free at last, and she’s bent on reclaiming what once was hers. The nine worlds will be drawn into war, over Hell, over Earth, with innocent humans meaningless collateral. While Michael and the Gardians of Asgard, along with the golden-armored Valkyrie lead the battle for freedom, it’s Desi who holds the destiny of all the worlds in her hands.

Can she set aside her doubts, once and for all, and claim the gifts that are hers to bear? Can she accept the sacrifice that is made for her and Become all that she was created to be?

Her final choice will define not only her future, but the fate of humankind, forever more.


 MY REVIEW:

The third book in the Desolation series, titled 'Destined' written by Ali Cross travels through Desolation's torments as she finds herself, and follows her decisions concerning what she wants to Become.

Her love for Michael is challenged as she finds herself in  situations where she needs to confront her feelings and make firm choices, which define not only her future, but also the future of the different worlds.

In 'Destined', Desolation also finds the love of her mother and discovers her heritage as she battles many foes, finding true friendship in her future.

An interesting paranormal love story where the reader connects with the characters and the storyline.

I've read the first book in this series, and have the other two on my Kindle, but I just haven't gotten to read them yet.

So many books and too little time!

Those covers certainly call up Desolate--beyond lonely and Destined--right on the edge with wings? Makes me wonder what's inside those covers.

Krista McLaughlin said...

Sounds like an interesting book series! I've never heard of them, but I will definitely have to check them out. :)
