Synopsis: Due to a talent she has kept secret since childhood, Mariah becomes reclusive and shies away from lasting relationships. However, one night a man steps out of a hole in space, injects her with an alien substance and her secret – an extraordinary psychic ability – becomes enhanced to the degree that she now can telepathically find abducted children.

Her safe, anonymous world is shattered when one of her Findings is filmed, sold to a news journalist, and blasted on every news media for the world to see.

Chosen follows Mariah's ever-evolving life, both mental and physical. At first, hailed as a hero for her supernatural abilities – possibly a messenger from God? – doubt creeps into the minds of the populace when her ever-increasing talents causes a man to die. Can she be bought by the highest bidder? Can she control her ever burgeoning powers? Can she even be controlled?

Review: Chosen is a cleverly-crafted and bewitching novel, which tells the story of Mariah Carpenter, who has spent her life trying to fit in and be accepted. Now she's received a boost to her small psychic powers, which she'd kept hidden since she was little in order to please her mother. I first thought, as I was reading, that this was a genre of book I don't normally read - but it's SO much more and will keep you on the edge of your seat. I enjoyed the characters very much, and while some of the twists I saw coming, they were written in such a way that it still made it fresh and new. I didn't want to put it down and I can't wait to read Prophecy! Sit back and let Chosen take you away to places you never dreamed...

Line of Descent series: Chosen (1), Prophecy (2), Revelation (3)
