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!

'Desolate', Book Two of Desolation, by Ali Cross continues Desolation's story as she struggles with the two sides of her inner self - light and dark! A mixture of Greek mythology, angels and demons, this paranormal story brings readers into a new realm as the sides of good and evil try to persuade Desolation to 'Become.'
Trying to understand her love for Michael and her driving need to be loved by her father, Loki, the Lord of Darkness, Desolation is caught up in a personal struggle to decide whether to follow her lighter side or to delve deeper into the darkness within her.
I have been swept into the fantasy world of this series and have found myself caught up in Desolation's struggle to follow the path before her.
Readers who like to be entranced by the fight between good and evil and enjoy stories about Angels and Demons will find this book an interesting read.

This is book 2 in the Desolation series, and picks up 2 months after the end of book 1 ‘Become’. **Warning – some unavoidable spoilers for book 1**
Desi is holding it together as best she can, knowing that her beloved – Michael is stuck in hell with her father Loki, and there’s little that she can do to help him.
Her friend Miri is having terrible nightmares about a demon on a grey horse, that she fears Desi will have to face, and Desi worries that she will not be capable of battling this foe when it comes to it.
So much is at stake for Desi though, her life, her love, and her friends. Can she save Michael? And ultimately can she save herself?
I really enjoyed this book, it was gripping and action packed! I got into this one right from the start, and read about half of it in one sitting!
I love Desi, and loved how she still cared for Michael and did her best for him, and how she fought the evil inside her, even though it was part of her. Once again, there wasn’t a lot of romance in this book, but Desi and Michael’s feelings for each other are so apparent and untainted it is really lovely.
I loved the world building, and Desolations flights with her wings – so cool. I did get a little confused by the complex storyline again, there really is a lot going on in this book, but again, the further you read, the more everything comes together. This really is a story that sucks you in for a real thrill ride!
I have to say that I really liked the grand finale and ending in this book! So dark and different, and I love how roles are reversed again compared to the ending of the first book. Such a twist that I didn’t see coming either!
Overall; great sequel! Looking forward to the next instalment!
8 out of 10.
