Book Description

“Winter Fade” Stories

“Becomings” reveals the stories behind three characters from the “Winter Fade” series - Isabel, Darya, and Katharine.

Born in different eras and tested by the events surrounding them, their paths will eventually intersect many decades after their lives changed forever.

"Who is she?"
"Someone who has transcended."

When Isabel met Jeremy, she was as much enraptured by his mystery as he was by hers. A simple choice to follow him one night in 1924 set her upon a new path, one shaped by trust, and guided by stars.
--
“How many?”
“I don’t count them. I only shoot them.”

Darya left behind her life as a pianist just before Leningrad became encircled. She found a new purpose in the winter struggles of the Battle of Stalingrad – as a sniper. Her discipline became her shield, and her passion her strength. But she never imagined the other strange turns her life would take . . .
--
“Did you join, intending to cover yourself in glory?”
“We got covered in a lot of things. Most of ‘em not very glorious.”

Katharine believed in her calling as a nurse in Camp Douglas during the bitter days of the Civil War. Yet the arrival of a new prisoner, a Texan named Jake, became a central part of a series of events that would have fateful consequences for her and those she loved.

4.0 out of 5 stars Companion book March 3, 2012
By Just Me
Format:Paperback
This is a great companion book to the Winter Fade book series. It tells you how some of your favorite vampires became vampires and then each story ends with a tie to the main Winter Fade character Imoen.

The only reason I gave this 4 stars instead of 5 is that although it could be read as an independent short story book, I think it would be a little confusing. Like he only mentions the word vampire in the Introduction. Since few people read Introductions and Forwards when he describes the transformations into vampires, I think, a reader who had not read Winter Fade series would not know what was happening.

But having said this, this is a great companion book that gives a depth and history to some of the side characters. Each story happens in different places and different times. Which gives each its own unique feel.

4.0 out of 5 stars Lovely writing August 29, 2012
Format:Kindle Edition
Matthew Lee Adams has a way with words and description. If you want to envision characters and feel their emotions, this is the book for you. The story of how each character became a vampire is intriguing, and I love the different paths of each one. There's something for everyone here.
