Calder has grown up in a place where they are all waiting for the great flood where they will be taken to Elysium. As they wait, there is no electricity, no choice, and no self-expression for those living and working in the community. The day Eden is brought to them as the one who will be their mother and marry their leader, Calder is in awe of the beautiful young girl. As years pass, everyone waits for Eden to turn 18 so that she can be married and they can be lead to Elysium, but Eden isn't so sure she wants to marry their leader and be their savior, especially when she feels so connected with Calder. A romance between Eden and Calder is strictly forbidden, but that doesn't stop them from feeling for the first time and questioning what Calder has grown up in and the only thing he has ever known.
Wow, this book. As I was reading this book, the only way I can really explain my experience is when you see an accident about to happen and you can't look away. The whole world that Calder lives in is SO WRONG and I knew that what Calder and Eden were doing was going to get them into serious trouble, but I couldn't stop reading. I couldn't stop watching them grow to love each other and learn the truths about the world while I was anxiously waiting for everyone else to finally figure out what they were doing. But the romaine between them was so beautiful, sweet, and innocent. I LOVED Calder and how much he cared for his sister and how sweet he was to Eden. I was swooning from the moment we met him.
Just to let you all know, this is a TWO PART book, so there is a sequel. Which means there was a SERIOUS cliffhanger that had me absolutely freaking out. Did I mention I didn't buy the sequel? Because I didn't know there was one and I am kicking myself for not buying it when it was on sale. The ending of this book freaked me out and I need to know what happens to Calder and Eden. I became so emotionally invested in them and I just want them to be happy and together and for life to not be so gosh darn difficult for them anymore.
If you want a very unique story with an incredible romance, you have to pick up Becoming Calder. I could not put this book down and cared about these characters as if they were my real life friends. I am definitely going to read more Mia Sheridan books and never take a sale for granted ever again!
“The thing is, Calder, it’s not always a choice who you develop feelings for. You’re playing with fire in more ways than one. Any fool can see the way you two look at each other.”
This author has a knack for incredible world-building, sucking readers into an unforgettable story. Becoming Calder had quite a large scene to set, so the beginning was a bit slower paced than what readers have come to expect from Sheridan. However, Eden and Calder’s romance was a bright ball of light, and once those rays started to seep through, there was just no stopping the explosion. The juxtaposition of the sweet girl who questioned things with the devout boy who blindly followed his faith was eye-opening and made for such beautiful transformations. From the very moment we’re introduced to each of these personalities, there was just something special that drew you in, creating a compulsive need to see how it would all end.
“You had to live every minute of the hard part in order to get to the good. Maybe that made it all the sweeter though. If you could just skip over the bad parts in life, the good parts would start to feel bland and emotionless.”
One of the things I admire most about Sheridan is her ability to transport readers to different worlds. In each book of the Signs of Love series, I am taken to a new place with new characters and a fresh storyline. Too many times when I get to the later books in a series, I start to feel like they’re similar plots and the book feels stale. However, Sheridan keeps surprising me, drawing me in, and only leaves me wanting more with the stories she has to tell. Becoming Calder was no exception, particularly with how different the settings were from her previous novels.
“I feel your lips on me, Eden. When I close my eyes, when I’m awake. I taste you. You are my first breath, and my last. I feel you, and I hope you still feel me, too.”
I’ll be honest and say that the blurb of Becoming Calder made me a tad bit hesitant to read this in the first place; yet, it delivered with its butterflies and heart racing moments. The sweet, slow romance that blossomed between the characters drives the plot forward while simultaneously burrowing into your soul. Readers will not be disappointed in this angsty delicious read that delivers in spades. I’m definitely not ready to leave this one behind yet, and am certainly glad that there’s another book to continue on with. Mia Sheridan has done it again, and I can’t wait to see where she brings this story in its conclusion!
