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.

THIS IS THE FIRST PART IN A TWO-PART SIGN OF LOVE SERIES INSPIRED BY AQUARIUS. THE SECOND PART, FINDING EDEN, WILL RELEASE SIMULTANEOUSLY. New Adult Contemporary Romance: Due to strong language and sexual content, this book is not intended for readers under the age of 18.

Finding Eden is the continuation, and conclusion, to Becoming Calder.

When the world as you know it has ended, when all that you love has been washed away, where do you find strength? 

When the new world you've stepped into is as isolating as the last, when your heart is broken, and your future is unclear, where do you find hope? 

Finding Eden is a story of strength, discovery, forgiveness, and undying love. It is about believing in your destiny and following the path that leads to peace.

THIS IS THE SECOND PART, AND CONCLUSION, IN A TWO-PARTSIGN OF LOVE SERIES INSPIRED BY AQUARIUS (BECOMING CALDER SHOULD BE READ FIRST). New Adult Contemporary Romance: Due to strong language and graphic sexual content, this book is not intended for readers under the age of 18.

Another great book by Mia Sheridan!!!

Her last book Archer’s Voice is a phenomenal hit. It’s very impressive and extraordinary that it puts the author in such a pedestal. The follow up book next to that should be at par or should be greater than the last, well at least this should be the case. No author would want to follow up her knockout by a mediocre one, do they? I have to say that Mia had equaled, if not surpassed Archer’s Voice. Becoming Calder is such a delightful book. I don’t think I’ve ever read something like this before and reading this is so, so much more!! It’s such an experience and I’m very grateful for the remarkable ride. Since this is such an experience, the emotions you will feel are profound and it will leave you with something you would cherish and treasure.

When I started reading this, I was confused, mind boggled and puzzled. The world that they live in is bizarre, I kept asking myself, "what is this?" "Is this dystopian? Fantasy?Another world in another universe?" It seems like our world but oh so different. As I go along, I theorized some concepts, umm maybe this, maybe that. I need to tell you that you should not get discouraged by this. Read on, go with the flow and you’ll understand all of that in the end because this is an experience you should not miss. This is an incredible read and I assure you, you’ll be more than satisfied for this wonderful encounter.

Calder grew up in this crazy world. He’s the type of guy who follows the rules and do his tasks as meticulously as possible. He’s also a dreamer, a guy who dreams that there is another life aside from being a water bearer. He's the type of guy who would do and exhaust every means to make those dreams come true.  In this place where ambitions are not tolerated and dreams have no place, he dared to craft his vision and possess that one thing that’s a big no no and banned from them.

Eden came to their place when she was just a child.  There’s a plan for her, so she’s treated like a princess. She’s kept in the lodge together with the other members of the council and their children. She’s forbidden to go out and play with the commoners. She’s the epitome of obedience. She follows everything that’s been said to her. But there’s one thing she wants and hopes to have. She fell in love with a boy that’s not destined for her. And in this crazy world they live in, being together is hopeless and impossible.

Becoming Calder is a beautiful love story of two individuals who fought for their love no matter what the consequences will bring. They dared to hope of being together in a situation that they don’t have any control and no power to survive. A world that was built on pure lies and deception. A world that confused them and made them question what is right and wrong, what is true and untrue.

This is one hell of a roller coaster ride for me. I've never felt so many emotions while reading a book!! I was skeptic, I was angry and I literally snorted with disgust. I questioned Hector’s sanity, wanted to punch him in his face more than once, and craved that the Gods will take him away from Eden and Calder and wished he will just vanish from earth. I fell in love with how they love each other, my heart swelled with longing and desperation on their helplessness. I swooned and gasped with the beauty of their love. I dreamed of a love like theirs and wished it’s me in the book. There was a part that thrilled me, scared me, and cried with them when they cried.

Mia had done it again! Becoming Calder is beautifully written, each scenes are well coordinated. There are so many exquisite lines that I almost highlighted the whole book. I had fun creating such stunning teasers. And I sincerely hope that you’ll enjoy them as much as I enjoyed making them.

This is the first part of a two-part series. And since both books are being released simultaneously, you will not wait long to read the next part. And I tell you, after reading the last part you would want to start the next one right away!

I have no words for this beautiful book. Except that I cried so many tears. I may have cried harder in this book than in Becoming Calder. They are good tears by the way. So good that I will gladly go through with that and cry again to once again experience this feeling  that one has after finishing a really, really good book.

Finding Eden is the continuation of Becoming Calder. At this point, you may want to ask or you must be asking yourselves these questions. What’s going to happen next? What about their love? Are they going to be together after that? Will they move on? Will fate bring them together again? What if the other had moved on? What was Acadia? Who is Hector? Who is Eden? Who is Calder? What now? This is a full novella, what drama will Mia make me read this time?

One thing I need to tell my fellow readers is that Mia did not create this story half baked. All things will be answered. Just be patient and read. Mia had woven a complete web that will surely ensnare the imagination and satisfaction of every reader. Her concoction is full of creamy goodness with cherries on top. This is a full meal course with dessert and coffee in the end of the delicious meal.

For fear of being redundant and sounding like a crazy lunatic telling you again and again that this is a great book and that this is an incredible reading experience… blah blah blah … and yada yada, I will just leave you with this: In this fast paced world we live in, the need to prioritize those things that are worthy of your time and effort is a must. This series is definitely one of those things.

Happy reading!

Thank you Mia for entrusting me with ARCs. Big big hugs from the Philippines!!

The books are beautifully written. There are so many profound lines that touches the heart. I literally highlighted the whole books. And I may have gone overboard in making these teasers. I hope y'all enjoy my creations!
