“I really struggled with [trying to] acclimate to the style that Sheridan infuses her books in.” ~ Under the Covers
BECOMING CALDER is part of Mia Sheridan’s A Sign of Love series. But it is also the first part in a two-part story for Calder and Eden inspired by Aquarius. The second part to the story is called Finding Eden.
I was interested in this story because of the concept of it. A lot of people seem to be fans of the series. I found Calder and Eden to be strong characters that have quite a cute and inspiring romance. Although this claims to be New Adult Contemporary, I didn’t think the secluded community that Calder is from really made it seem that way. They take to heart certain morals over others and when you throw in the Prophet and Acadia and all that, it really didn’t come across as something that could be relatable in the modern community especially in the beginning. Unfortunately, I didn’t like it.
Calder and Eden form a strong bond early on in their life. It steadily progresses later on. There’s a sweetness to it all that make the romance very inspiring. But as I mentioned earlier, this is only the first part in a duology so the conclusion for them as yet to come.
However for me, I think the problem lie in the execution and the writing style. A lot of people have been raving about the amazing writing. I personally found it to be quite choppy, preventing me from really and truly submerging into the storyline. As the story progressed, I found it easier but the beginning I really struggled with it as I tried to acclimate to the style that Sheridan infuses her books in.
