Patrina steps into the next realm on her journey to Arcadia, and at first, this realm is the one that was shown to her in her vision in the tree, but she isn't alone. Her new traveling companion has unique abilities of her own and they will both need to work together to get through the Prison World. Plagued by creatures she's never read of in her books, can they trust their new escort through this realm? Or is he working for the Fallen? And why is he so afraid of the beast? Becoming is full of twists and turns from beginning to end. Patrina will learn even more about who she is, and who she can, and can't, trust. Can she make it to the portal to the next realm before she's trapped inside with the shadow creatures?
