Review on Amberkatze’s Book Blog:
From the time that the Darkness ruled the ages, The Ancient Ones prophesied of a time when the last descendant of The Gods would arise. Now, in the town of Winmont, the Ancient Legion has awoken to finish what was started many millennia ago. Now, the fate of humanity is in the hands of One, but can he overcome the forces that dare to challenge the bloodline of the Gods?
Alex Manning is on the way to a Society meeting but all he can think about is the weird visions and nightmares he has been having. When he arrives at the meeting he can’t shake the feeling that he should leave, that something weird is about to happen. When he hears about the Jamiesonn investigation he realises that he needs to know more about it and that it maybe the answer to his visions.
Before he knows that he is ‘The One’, Alex is already in too deep. In battle with demons, betrayed by fellow society members and maybe even falling in love again makes for a mass of feelings and exhaustion. Will Alex come through it all in one piece? Or will evil win this time?
Seventy percent horror and thirty percent paranormal The Chosen will appeal to Stephan King fans who love a little bit more supernatural. Well written this novel is very dark, deep and even disgusting at times but full of details to keep the storyline on track and worth reading.
If you like your books full of evil, heavy with horror and a powerful plot then this is definitely worth your time. A little to hard for my personal tastes but I still enjoyed the book for what it is.
