Review: Desolate Ali Cross (Book two of Desolation)
Where darkness lives, all becomes desolate . . .
It’s been two months since sixteen-year-old Desolation Black chose Earth over Hell and her friend Miri over her eternal love, Michael.
Desi goes through the motions of life: school, training, remaining vigilant against the forces of darkness, but her dreams are full of the choices she wishes she could change. When she’s injured by a strange demon, old temptations arise, and the lines between good and evil blur. Desi discovers those choices aren’t so final after all.
And this time, the power of love—for a friend, for a lover—may not be enough to save her from the darkness that lurks within.
I received this book to give an honest review.
Poor Desi just can not take a break! When she lost her beloved Michael two months ago, Desi and her friends Miri, James, Longinus, Knowles, and Cornelius all try to figure out a way to get him back! But that is easier said than done.
Miri ends up having dreams of a horseman, and Desi knows she has to stop him before he does any damage to Earth! But who is this horseman? Now while fighting the horseman she is injured and next thing you know Desi's evil side is trying to get her! And she is finding it harder and harder to not turn....but will she end up evil at the end? Or will good triumph evil? Will she ever get Michael back?
Now I was truly upset with Desi and how she treated her friend Miri when she was going through a hard time. Not once did she try to comfort her and it bothered me because her and Miri have a past and that is really her only true girl friend. I mean hell when Miri was face to face with her Mom Desi didn't even try to be right beside her best friend. I just found that way too weird, and I did understand that hey Desi is fighting a battle within herself but still she knew what she was doing.
Now I know this may be silly, but when Michael and Desi were in Hell. Desi ended up screaming and Michael. Umm why now? I didn't truly understand that part.
With Desolate you are filled with a slow starting pace at first then it heats up with action and all sorts of feelings going on. There is a battle like no other, which is really good. Now I can not wait to read book three in this amazing series!
My rating: 5 stars
