In Become: Freyja Wolfe (1) by Lisa Merrai we discover that Freyja has always believed herself to be a fairly normal teenage girl, except for the scars that lightning left on her body years ago and the disappearance of her family shortly after. All sense of normality vanishes after she is attacked by another student at school, and is bitten on the hand. The wound reveals a mysterious implant, and its removal triggers a strange reaction in Freyja’s body. Her scars begin glowing and she sees a strange web that seems to connect everyone, a dark web. Abilities long dormant begin to awaken within her and she is terrified and confused. She finds herself unable to control her new powers and is pursued by dangerous people who feel threatened by her very existence. She and her best friend, Nash, embark on a journey that will overthrow everything they once believed to be true about humanity, the earth, the universe, and even themselves. Mysterious, newfound friends guide them as they race to find a way to save themselves and humanity from the darkness that is quickly overtaking the world.

Lisa Merrai’s debut novel and the first in her new urban fantasy series, Become: Freyja Wolfe (1) is part psychological thriller and part fantasy. Merrai’s vivid and beautiful descriptions bring the characters and their experiences to life. The plot is suspenseful and engaging, drawing readers in and sweeping them up into a strange and otherworldly adventure that will keep them guessing until the dramatic end. This book will leave readers eager to devour the next installment in this fascinating series.


The characters and plot are so vivid that I cared about them immediately and am anxious the next installment to find out what happens! A great read! Thank you Lisa!
