Jennifer’s Review:

*I received this book free from the author in exchange for an honest review.*

Elizabeth “Lizzie” thought she was having reoccurring nightmares…turns out they were premonitions. Even after witnessing firsthand that her dreams were reality she kept trying to convince herself that they were dreams because for them to be real meant either she was going crazy or her world was fixing to get turned upside down.

Ian was supposed to save Elizabeth and he did, but she wasn’t one of his normal charges. He couldn’t walk away from her as he’d done all others before. He was drawn to her, needed to know her, and to help her. However, in order to help her he has to go against everything he’s been taught to believe.

“Your laugh does weird things to me.” He brushed his thumb under her lower lip. “It makes me feel better than saving people.”

Elizabeth is pulled into a world she never knew existed. And Ian is learning that everything he’s ever know is a lie. Together they will learn to trust each other and to stand up for what’s right against any obstacle that lies in their path.

In a world of angels and demons The Chosen will take you on a journey of discovery that will leave you enthralled and wanting more. It is book one in The Descendants Series, it does not end on a major cliffhanger, but it does end in a place that will have you ready for book two.

“Doing my best isn’t good enough if I can’t keep you safe.”

She put down her utensils and shifted closer to him. “You said I burst into flames.”

“You did.”

“And you saw the man burn.”

He nodded.

“Yet you ran straight to me. You could’ve burned; you could’ve died.”

“I just wanted to get you out of the fire.”

“I get it that it’s your job to protect me, but please don’t do that again – especially if I burst into flames again. I don’t know what happened, and – “

“I’ll do it over and over again.”
