About the Author
Debra Kristi was born and raised a Southern California girl. She still resides in the sunny state with her husband, two kids, and three schizophrenic cats. Unlike the characters she often writes, she is not immortal and her only super power is letting the dishes and laundry pile up. When not writing, Debra is hanging out creating priceless memories with her family, geeking out to science fiction and fantasy television, and tossing around movie quotes.

Ana's journey is a mysterious one. After all, she's BECOMING something. What exactly? Not even she knows at first...
It kind of drives me crazy when I'm kept in the dark about things. So it was a little torturous to follow along with Ana...who happens to be, you guessed it, IN THE DARK about a lot of things. It kept me reading, that's for sure. Plus, Debra Kristi has a way with words. I actually dog-eared a few pages with beautifully written sentences.
Now on her way "home" she fights all sorts of battles to get there all the while being stalked by Dohlan the other guy in her dreams. One who she knows is a danger but cannot fight the power he has over her. Hopefully when she gets home she can fulfill her destiny and not fall into his overwhelming power, after all this is his home also. Yikes! Poor Ana she has two dream guys but only one will win!
I love Debra Kristi's writing, she has exotic taste. Her writing has a life all it's own and doesn't form into the typical "love story" most fall into. I love the fast paced ride she always gives me.
I really liked Ana, her personality was meek and sweet with a slight edge of defiance. She was going to find out who she was at all cost because she
knew she was different just didn't know how so. The more she learns the more she grows and when all the pieces to the puzzle start falling into place, she slowly grabs ahold of her destiny and allows her friend Ry and her dream guy Jaden escort her home. With all the twisty and turvey obstacles she faces she learns a little more about herself. She starts Becoming into herself and it was fun to watch or read :)
I liked Ana and Jaden's budding relationship, it was sweet and he obviously cared about her. If only Dohlan would leave her alone and stop confusing her, he might have a chance. I hope so but so much was left unsaid and can't wait for the next book in the series.
