Overview

Lately, Tianna has been feeling unsettled, and she can't understand why -- she has a great boyfriend, good friends, and, for once, a loving foster home. But still, she can't shake the thought that something, or someone, is after her. At a skateboarding competition she runs into two of her most feared enemies, Justin and Mason. Only now, they claim they've come to help Tianna -- to warn her of her becoming. She has no idea what they mean, but deep down, Tianna senses herself changing. She knows that every Daughter has a dark side, but is hers threatening to overtake her?

Tianna no longer knows who to trust when good and evil forces fight over her and rush her toward an uncertain, but crucial, destiny--toward either the moon goddess, Selene, or the ancient evil known as the Atrox.

Editorial Reviews

VOYA
The twelfth book in the Daughters of the Moon series, The Becoming, features Tianna, who for all indications is a happy teen with a steady boyfriend who accepts her telekinetic powers. She has a circle of supportive friends and lives in a stable foster home. Inwardly, however, Tiana is confused and restless. Her fears are confirmed when she seeks advice from a fortuneteller who predicts an unspeakable future of terror. With the help of Jimena, whose memories have suddenly begun to reappear, Tianna learns that she is "the becoming," a designation that links her to the dreaded Atrox. Tianna initially rejects the notion that she is in any way connected to the malevolent force that killed her family, but the tremendous power of the Atrox and her newly discovered history allows evil to gain the upper hand. Readers will be stunned by the story's dramatic conclusion that reveals Tianna's ultimate destiny in the battle between good and evil. Ewing effectively portrays Tianna as a bright young woman who must come to terms with her lot in life. Secondary characters are less effective. Readers will understand the plot even if not familiar with the rest of the series, although Ewing sometimes refers without explanation to a few characters from earlier volumes. These fast-paced, spirited books are sure to be a satisfying read for fans and newcomers alike with their combinations of adventure, suspense, and supernatural foreboding. VOYA CODES: 3Q 5P J S (Readable without serious defects; Every YA (who reads) was dying to read it yesterday; Junior High, defined as grades 7 to 9; Senior High, defined as grades 10 to 12). 2004, Hyperion, 288p., PLB .

    The Becoming - Glad that there's another book after this

    It has been a while since I read this and I sort of forgot what happened at the end and then learned later that there was another book after this and was so happy but also sad that it was the last in the series The Final Eclipse). Here we have Tianna feeling a little restless and doesn't know why, that's when she begins to have trust issues and learns a startling revelation about herself.
