    The Chosen is the first in a new trilogy by Taran Matharu, if you haven't read this author before then start with his other series first. The Chosen is an action packed ride from beginning to end. I really enjoy the quick and well plotted storylines of Matharu. I was pleasantly surpris...

    Y?all! I NEED TO GUSH ABOUT THIS BOOK. It was my favorite read of this year so far. I was lucky enough to read it before release and I have been clamoring for the next book since (I don?t want to wait a year!) Cade is sent on an epic journey through an unfamiliar landscape with ...

    This review can also be found on my blog! The book was featured on First Lines Friday. Yeah. It went from me thinking it was a good book to just okay to actively disliking it. My main issue is that there?s tons of action, but, when you reflect, nothing?s gone on. There?s be...

    The Chosen turned out to be a bit crazier than I thought, a good kind of crazy though! To be honest, I'm not sure if I dreamed I read this book because it was different to me than what the summary of the book says it's about. Don't get me wrong, there is some crazy universe these k...

    I loved the summoner series and was hoping that this would compare and guess what, Taran Matharu didn't disappoint! This book draws you in quickly and is hard to put down. Its very fast paced and throws you right into the action from the star. Cade is an ineresting character and if you...

    Received via NetGalley for review. An exciting middle-grade novel for those who like that particular genre of kids-fighting-kids/monsters (which I do, and which lots of people do!) I wish there had been a little more room for character development - there are a lot of characters,...
