Becoming: The Balance Bringer (The Balance Bringer Chronicles #1)

Becoming The Balance Bringer

Summary:

Ana’s world is falling apart. What she thought were dreams start entering her waking life. Eerie shadows hunt her. Her dream guy becomes reality. And strange new abilities begin developing. Ana is becoming something other.

She is determined to find answers, but where to turn? Her mom and best friend are keeping secrets. Her older sister is dead and exists only in her dreams. And her younger sister thinks they are goddesses.

Above all else, dark forces will stop at nothing to crush Ana – to keep her from restoring balance. To keep her from…becoming.

Is love and blood and sisterhood enough to stop the dark secrets and power from destroying her?  (Summary and cover courtesy of goodreads.com)

Review:

This was a book was a slow build for me.  I never had a good sense of what was going, which I found a little frustrating.  Essentially, I just felt like there weren’t enough bread crumbs to keep me going while trying to get through the first part.  Once Ana started to realize a bit more what was going on, I got hooked in a little more.  The last few chapters of the book are absolutely mesmerizing.  The challenges and trials they were through were very cool although I still didn’t get a great sense of who is who with the multiple potential villains.

I am sure that there will be a lot explained in the next book so I wish that I had that one to tie me over a bit more.  Overall I would say this was a pretty good read and I’d certainly read additional books by the author.

Warning: Contains repeated violence.

Rating: 3 stars!
