My Review
Chosen is one of those books that grabs you and sucks you right on in...down into the depths of Hell.

This was my first book by R.S. Broadhead, and after reading Chosen, I'm definitely going to have to read more of her stuff. I am definitely a new fan.

Chosen tells the story of a young woman named Piper. Piper thinks she finally has her life in check after a terrible childhood. Unfortunately for Piper, she's dead wrong. Not only has she started seeing some strange things, her only living relative has also passed away.

It's this news that sets off a horrific chain of events that will forever change Piper's life. As if she hasn't suffered enough already...

I really enjoyed the eeriness and creepiness of Chosen. I like to read at night while in bed, and this story definitely sent my anxiety through the roof. I had to use my book light as an extra source of comfort, just so I wouldn't freak myself out too much. lol

Piper is a likeable enough character. You sort if feel bad for her because of all the crap she's had to deal with. And after her grandfather passes, she ends up in Hell. And by Hell, I mean a town called Hell, not actual Hell. Although...

There are a few other characters in the story that you're a bit on the fence about. They seem like decent people, but are they? It's hard trying to figure out who to trust in this book, that's for sure.

The plot moves along at a steady pace, ramping up the fear and anxiety slowly but surely. You'll find yourself dreading what might come next, while at the same time eager to know what will happen. It definitely takes you on a ride.

There was only one scene that sort of confused me, and I was a little disappointed by how it turned out. But, to be fair, that was my own high hopes being dashed. Nothing against the writing, or the way the author planned for it to go.

Overall, a really good, spooky read. Perfect for Halloween. I'd recommend it. I give Chosen 4.5 stars. Check it out!
