Purchase: Amazon, Barnes and Nobles
I have been a fan of Ms. Grover’s books since I read Twenty-Eight and a Half-wishes. So when I was given the opportunity to read her new paranormal book Chosen I was ecstatic.
Her writing style is compelling and has a way of submerging you completely into the story. Chosen was no exception; it was everything I could hope for plus more. It was action packed and full of suspense. The first few pages give way to an explosive start that will have you holding on to the edge of your seat.
The pace of the story was perfect; every time I thought that I might have figured something out in the story the author threw me through a loop. The twist and turns in the story line only added to my anticipation to know what would happen next. I couldn’t put the book down.
The paranormal aspect of this book wasn’t overwhelming, it was subtle and it added to the mystery of the story.
As the story developed so did the characters and I actually spent the perfect amount of time with each of them to become attached. I loved that I was able to see the story from both Will and Emma’s perspective. They were complicated and unique characters that I could relate to, and I must say this for being only five, Jake completely freaked me out at times.
This was a totally mind-blowing beginning to a trilogy. I am dying to read book 2 which I just found out will be released on Tuesday, November 22nd. (Super excited because I hate to wait ).
This is one book you definitely don’t want to miss out on.
