I was lucky to have the chance to read the first 3 chapters of Becoming before it was released (Thanks Raine!) and I was instantly hooked. I had to know what happened. I have been anxiously awaiting the release.

The world of the Estilorians is a world unlike any other. I have never read anything like this. From the very beginning (prologue, ahem) my heart was pounding. Amber is a young woman that is easy to relate to and root for. I immediately liked her and felt her feelings of loss, excitement, fear, doubt, joy and more. The life she has lived has been one of extreme loss and hardship. Her sarcastic humor and snarky attitude are tools she uses to protect herself. Her journey in Becoming is nothing short of remarkable. Gabriel is the type of guy that we all should be so lucky to have in our lives. His attention and love for Amber is endearing and sweet. I cannot imagine one without the other.

Raine Thomas has the incredible ability to paint this new world into our minds with the written word. I could see and feel it all. It is simply beautiful. As I type this I am longing to read Central, so I will close. I am so grateful that I have been able to “meet” Raine and be introduced to the Estilorians. I absolutely loved every word. Read Becoming for yourself and be prepared to enter a fantasy you’ve never even dreamed of.

Side note: I really want my own Gloresti *swoon*
