My Rating: ★★★★☆
She thought the demons were in her head… until the night they attacked.
Ryn Tyler didn’t intend to kill a demon when she moved to Eagle Valley—or to become the hero of a divine race of angels. She just wants to be a normal teenager, but fate has other plans.
While discovering the secrets of the supernatural, Ryn navigates a complicated relationship with Marek, the guy who can’t stop saving her life. But Marek knows more about Ryn’s magic than he’s letting on.
Only Ryn has the power to stop the coming apocalypse. But there’s a demon in Eagle Valley who wants that power for himself—and if Ryn wants to survive, she’ll have to fight back.
This one will be short and simple. I enjoyed Chosen by Grace. I’ll probably end up reading the next two books as well.
The story was interesting and unique (in my opinion). The concept was new (to me, anyway, I don’t know if others have written something similar), which is a big plus because you don’t find new things very often. And I didn’t notice any errors as I was reading through, which is always nice.
However, the book seemed a little short, which may just be because it’s YA, and for some reason, it didn’t drag me in the way other books do. I didn’t experience that fabulous moment where the world ceases to exist and you’re watching the story in your mind, rather than just reading it.
I haven’t the faintest idea why I didn’t connect with Chosen by Grace. But, because I didn’t, I’m giving it four stars. I would definitely recommend the book, especially to people who enjoy YA, but I won’t be raving about it.
