The Chosen One by Carol Lynch Williams
My rating: 5 of 5 stars
I sat down to read this book and didn’t leave my chair until I’d finished it four hours later. Compelling, driving narrative and great characterization combine in this moving novel. I wanted Kyra out of her situation from page one, while I was equally torn by her family loyalty. This is not a black and white book, and the ending is fittingly unresolved. My only quibble is that the antagonists are so dreadful that they border on purely and flatly evil – but that’s a minor flaw in an otherwise rich and fast-paced read.
