This fantastic introduction to a new series kept me on the edge of my seat and was very hard to put down!

I'm not even sure where to start with this... Chosen kind of blew my mind. I wasn't entirely sure what to expect as this isn't my usual genre preference, but it was so good!

From the very start, it caught my attention. The story is so intense, with a great build up. The authors do a fantastic job of balancing descriptions and action. Because this book deals with demons and possession, there's a lot of information given about them, the history, and different rituals associated. However, the authors tell it in a way that keeps the reader engaged and interested; it wasn't info-dumping. Everything was very well written, too. The words flowed well, and the dialogue felt natural.

I'm not one to typically like anything remotely "scary," so I admittedly had to stop reading this at night. I wouldn't categorize it as "horror" per se, but there are a lot of intense scenes with some gore. It reminded me a lot of Supernatural. It's a different story, but the content and level of suspense is similar.

The main character, Ben, and his best friend, Peter, are developed well. There is a lot of shared trauma and emotion in their lives. I am curious about Ben's advisor, who helped him build his angelology major. I really want to know more about her, her history, and if she knows the truth about everything. There are two more books, so this might be something to come later.

I will absolutely be continuing the series. This was a great first book in not only a new series but a new genre for me. I thoroughly enjoyed it and cannot wait to continue.
