Zoey and her friend’s problems don’t get any better or their life any easier in Chosen. One of the teachers is found dead and it seems that the anti-vampyre religious group, of which Zoey’s mum and step-dad are part of, are behind it. Meanwhile, Zoey’s still having boyfriend troubles, she can’t turn her back on Heath, finds herself more and more attracted to Erik but longs for the forbidden love of Loren Blake.
With Stevie Rae no longer there, Zoey chooses Aphrodite to take Stevie Rae’s place in the circle – which causes tension among the group and Zoey begins to feel isolated from her friends. Aphrodite becomes more of a central character in Chosen and we being to see a nicer side to her, I definitely start to warm to her in throughout this book. Throughout the first two books, Neferet was a bit of a mystery – in Chosen she shows her true colours and Zoey begins to realise exactly what she’s up against.
One of the great things about this series is there is loads going on and it’s very well-paced. There’s not a point where you’re bored as there’s nothing exciting happening but there’s not too much going on that you’re confused as to what’s happening. There are a few loose ends in Chosen which keeps you hooked and wanting more.
