“So, what’s the verdict? “Mutants? Monsters that go bump in the night?”
“Oh right, let’s go wandering around the desert. Sure to be plenty of water and food there.”
“Drifting through the corridors like a ghost, careful not to be seen, not to be heard.”

Review of The Chosen
Review (4.5 Stars): The Chosen was an epic fantasy adventure that had me on the edge of my seat. This is the first book in a brand new trilogy about teens fighting for survival in a life or death match as they figure out why they were brought to this strange place. Cade was just looking to survive after he was sent to reform school for a crime he didn’t commit. When he wakes up in a strange place one day, he has to put aside his nerves and fight against creatures that he has never seen before. He has been chosen for a game where he doesn’t know the rules and he is running out of time. What a great start to a new series!
