I started this book without reading the blurb so I spent a little bit of time in the beginning trying to figure out what sub genre this book fell under- fantasy, dystopia, paranormal, etc. But rest assured it is not any of those genres and had I actually read the blurb I would have figured that out.
Awhile back I had read a book by Mia Sheridan and loved it so when I was given the opportunity to read this one I didn’t hesitate. I’m thankful for that gut reaction because this book was amazing.
All throughout BECOMING CALDER we hear about an impending storm / flood and the implications of what will happen once it hits. Waiting for that disturbing storm made my heart race.
Becoming Calder is placed in a culture cut off from society by choice. Within this society a forbidden love smolders betweenCalder and Eden. Their love threatens to destroy the social structure and the greater good of their community. Their own personal desires are sacrificed to assure the destiny of others will be secure.
BUT WHAT IF?? What if -the forecast goes against their aspirations … will their own personal desires take precedence over others? What if -they decided to buck the system in favor of their own individual ambitions … will society crumble and fade away orwill life continue on?
Every once in awhile a book comes along that leaves you “wow-ed”! When I finished this book I sat there letting everything sink in. Becoming Calder is an unique circumstance that opens the eyes of the readers and shows them a foreign way of living.
There is a place in modern day America with no electricity, no plumbing, and no modern conveniences. In this place, there is no room for dreams, no space for self-expression, and no tolerance for ambition.
In this place, there is a boy with the body of a God and the heart of a warrior. He is strong and faithful and serves his family honorably. But he dares to dream of more.
In this place, there is a girl with the face of an angel and a heart full of courage. To her family, she is the vision of obedient perfection. But she dares to want that which she has been told can never be hers.
Becoming Calder is the story of good versus evil, fear versus bravery, and the truth that the light of love has always found its way into even the darkest of places… From the beginning of time, to the end of the world.
