Publisher's Summary

From the New York Times best-selling author of Archer's Voice. Becoming Calder is the first part in a two-part romance series. The conclusion, Finding Eden, is available now.
There is a place in modern-day America with no electricity, no plumbing, and no modern conveniences. In this place there is no room for dreams, no space for self-expression, and no tolerance for ambition. In this place there is a boy with the body of a god and the heart of a warrior. He is strong and faithful and serves his family honorably. But he dares to dream of more.
In this place there is a girl with the face of an angel and a heart full of courage. To her family she is the vision of obedient perfection. But she dares to want that which she has been told can never be hers.
Becoming Calder is the story of good versus evil, fear versus bravery, and the truth that the light of love has always found its way into even the darkest of places.... From the beginning of time, to the end of the world.

BOOK 1 OF 2.. IT'S A UNIQUE BREATHTAKING EPIC SAGA

I will try, but I will surely fail, to put into words just how truly magical, captivating, romantic, mesmerising, powerful, emotional and unforgettable this sweeping saga is.

This is the story of a little boy called Calder who was growing up in a closed off Religious Sect called Acadia and the evil mad Leader of the Sect who brought a little girl called Eden into the Community one day proclaiming that she is the 'chosen one' and will be his bride when she turns 18. But as soon as Calder and Eden's eyes met, even at a young innocent age, there was a strong pull of friendship which, over the years, turned into a breathtaking beautiful love.

But living in the Sect was hard, there were the privileged members who had all mod cons and the workers who had nothing. They were preached at by the Leader that the Gods have spoken to him and the end of the world will happen and that he is going to lead them all after death to the promised land..... providing he marries Eden. However, over the years people see how Calder and Eden start to look longingly at each other and they all disapprove - especially the Leader. So he finds ways to torment Calder regularly coming up with new ways to single him out, torture him and try to break him. Calder is beautiful inside and out and he won't be broken because his whole world is Eden and Eden's whole world is Calder and they long to live freely together so make plans to escape.

Which is where your emotions are truly going to be tested and, as if the story wasn't heartbreaking enough, this is where the story will fill you with joy and happiness, shock and devastate you, bring you to tears and eventually have you sobbing for the doomed lovers. Dual POV and a team of great narrators who brought the whole emotional and very powerful story to life. This is book 1 so there's a mother of all cliffhanger endings and you might as well download book 2 Finding Eden while you're downloading this book because you won't be able to move forward until you've finished them both.

Worth a credit? One thousand times YES it's deep, it gives you a true sense of how members of Cults are brainwashed, it's very very romantic and touching, it's nerve wracking and pulse pounding, it's emotionally draining, there's twists, shocks and tragedy and it's very well written. Mia Sheridan is an awesome Author and, from now on, she will be an auto download for me.
