The New Author – Book Review

The Chosen – A Review by The New Author
C.A. Milson

Before I begin let me just say that I found it difficult to put this book down until I saw the words “The End.”

Although marketed as a horror novel I feel that The Chosen hugs the line between horror and fantasy. Don’t get me wrong, there are horrific scenes of pain and torture but the overall feel of the novel is that of a quest or journey rather then fear.

The main character, Alex Manning, is a character that can be related to as he suffers through the tragedies of life. Unlike the rest of mankind Alex has a destiny to fulfill. With few allies and enemies at every turn it is left too Alex to save not only the world but also himself.

This is a fast paced novel with few sections to catch your breathe. C.A. has crafted the foundation of a really good story here. This story grabs hold of you and takes you for a ride. The enemies are evil through and through while the good guys are at times questionable. What is not questionable is the battle between good and evil.

The story is solid and I look forward to reading the second novel in this trilogy. I will say that there were grammatical errors and a few missing words throughout the novel; however, in my opinion, this does not take away from the story itself. Being a new author C.A. demonstrates that he has what it takes to craft even better stories in the future.

In closing, if you wish to read a book from a new author that will take you on an enjoyable ride I recommend – The Chosen.
