Desi Before.

I’d seen the shows. Listened to the music. I’d seen myself in the mirror.

I could be one of them.

One of the laughing, smiling, summershine girls. One of hand-holding, secret-sharing, friends.

I looked like them. I could pretend.

I try. Smile at the mirror. Stretch my lips upward, let my eyes crinkle.

But it never works.

Because they have something I never will. They—those girls on TV, in the movies, singing their hearts out—live. They know good and bad, happy and sad.

Me? I know Hell.

I know training.

Every day it’s the same—work with Akaros in the training room. Try, desperately, to best him. To crush him. Try, desperately, to hide my secret.

Every day I try.

Then it’s training—with Father in the throne room. Where I try, without effort, to emulate him. To be fierce. Try, without effort, to be the daughter Lucifer, my father, wants me to be.

Those girls—they have it all.

Me? I have Hell.

Me: What did you think of that?! ;)

Have you checked out the first two books in the Desolation series?
 Why not?

Become by Ali Cross (Desolation #1)
Publication Date: November 11, 2011
Sixteen-year old Desolation Black wants nothing more than to stay in Hell where it's cold and lonely and totally predictable. Instead, she's sent back to Earth where she must face the evil she despises and the good she always feared.

When Desi is forced to embrace her inner demon, she assumes her choice has been made--that she has no hope of being anything other than what her father, Lucifer, has created her to be. What she doesn't count on, is finding a reason to change--something she's never had before--a friend.

 Desolate by Ali Cross (Desolation #2)
Publication Date: July 3, 2012

Where darkness lives, all becomes desolate . . .

It's been two months since sixteen-year-old Desolation Black chose Earth over Hell and her friend Miri over her eternal love, Michael.

Desi goes through the motions of life: school, training, remaining vigilant against the forces of darkness, but her dreams are full of the choices she wishes she could change. When she's injured by a strange demon, old temptations arise, and the lines between good and evil blur. Desi discovers those choices aren't so final after all.

And this time, the power of love--for a friend, for a lover--may not be enough to save her from the darkness that lurks within.

It's best if you start at Tiffany's blog: Escaping One Book at a Time
She'll have the excerpt that you need to read first!
Each blog will have their own "word" that will finish off the last sentence in the excerpt.

My word is NOT.
