Publisher's Summary

It is said that when war threatens the world, one individual will be selected by prophecy to lead the Shadow Warriors out of the Land of Mist and reclaim the freedom that has been stolen.

Shanti has grown up under the constant threat of war. Since she helped her people defeat a raiding party by using a special power, she's been a hunted woman. Carrying rare abilities and an uncanny fighting aptitude, Shanti is the only hope of salvation for her people. The problem is, she doesn't believe in her own divinity, and when she flounders, she nearly fails in the duty hanging so heavy on her shoulders.

It seems like any other day when Sanders and his band of misfit boys find a foreign woman clinging to life in the wastelands. Oblivious to the weapon they now have in their possession, they are content to harbor the mysterious woman until she is well enough to continue her journey. But when the war spreads its arms and lands on her borrowed doorstep, Shanti has no choice but to reveal her secrets, plunging her saviors into danger. If they band with her, they will face certain death. But to trade her to Xandre, the warlord desperate to add her to his war machine, would be to give up their entire way of life.

War is coming. The only question is this: Which side do you choose?

    "new author for me very enjoyable"

    Good story. Unique characters. Loved it. Every character enhances the plot. Well done. New author for me will be happy to look out for future stories in this series or any future stories.

    "Poor quality"
    What could have made this a 4 or 5-star listening experience for you?

    Better writing, depth and storyline.


    Would you ever listen to anything by K. F. Breene again?

    Probably not.


    Any additional comments?

    This book was 'chosen' due to the large number of positive reviews, though sometimes I wonder whether I am listening to the same story as everyone else. The story lacked decent writing, depth or characterisation. I had to stop listening quite early on as I really didn't care what happened to the story or the characters. I have no trouble with sticking with slow start epics (Wheel of time series, and the Malazan empire books), but there has to be some spark or element of decent writing that holds you to the end, and make you grateful you stuck with them to the end. I couldn't find it with this book, and I plan to send it back for a refund. I am desperate to find decent new science fiction epics to read.

    Story
    "Writing is a bit rough but story is engaging"

    This is the first book in the Warrior Chronicles by Breene. There are six books in this series and all have been released. This was an okay book. Despite some rough writing I ended up engaged and interested in the story by the end. This is one of those books that I know is fairly poorly written but, being that I am a sucker for interesting characters, I was drawn in anyway.

    I listened to this on audiobook and Davies did a good job. She sounded very much like I imagine Shanti would and did a good job with male voices as well. I would recommend listening to on audiobook if you enjoy audiobooks.

    There are a few things about this book that make it seem a bit amateurish. The writing here is a bit rough and some of the things that occur in the story don't quite make sense. Some of the things that don’t make sense and are contradictory in the beginning are eventually explained. However, the way it’s put together is sloppy.

    Additionally some of the way actions are described are a bit just....off. For some reason Breene has an obsession with telling you how a guy’s balls react in a given situation; the description “so and so made his balls tighten in anticipation/anger/lust” was used quite a bit. This was a unique experience for me because I didn’t realize a guys balls could be so expressive in so many different types of situations (war, general conversations, etc). A number of descriptors were similar (using strange body parts to try to convey a characters’ emotions) and it felt a bit...off and awkward.

    Despite the above as the story continued I ended up being very engaged with the characters and this world. I really want to know what’s going to happen to Shanti and Sanders and the rest of our characters. I also loved the world and all the political issues here.

    Overall I was surprised by the end how much I wanted to read the next book in this series. If you can get past the slightly rough and awkward writing style this is a pretty enjoyable book. I plan on reading the next one and hope that the writing quality smooths out a bit. I am hoping this is a case of “first book syndrome” and in the next book Breene will have a better writing stride and flow.

    It was better than I expected, I was a little skeptical when I bought this book, because i was not familiar with this author. But I'm really happy I picked the series to read.

    "Potential"

    The plot could have made a deeply immersive story. It falls short in character development!! Way short. I listened to the entire book, I was even engaged while not listening just thinking about what may happen. I did like the book. It is not a waste of time at all. Its just a bit frustrating in the lack of personal details also the order the author chose to reveal the protagonist's memories seem out of order and illogical. I would say this is a great first book for a brand new, young writter. I do not know if it is a first for the author...

    "Chosen by K. F. BREENE"

    Loved every single moment of the story.
    Narration made it more for me
    Listening to it over and over again unable to do with print work and duty calls.
    I hope it is in the stars to do the entire series.

    "Good Story! Entertaining & Interesting!"
    If you could sum up Chosen in three words, what would they be?

    Fun & Action Packed


    What did you like best about this story?

    I liked the development of the characters. They were all engaging and interactions developed realistic connections.


    Would you listen to another book narrated by Caitlin Davies?

    I didn't like her voice when she wasn't imitating voices. Something about her inflection was irritating. It took an effort to get past it and focus on the story, but her character voices made up for the inflection.


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    Absolutely! It was a really good story, nicely developed. Didn't really like to ending but I guess it was the segway to the next book.


    Any additional comments?

    Looking foreward to the next book.

    Story
    "Great fantasy fiction."

    It was a little confusing at first. the way the book started out, not knowing the background, it was a little hard to follow but with her memories everything falls in place. I love the action sequences, the humor, sarcasm and sexual tension. Can't wait to read the next book.

    Story
    "Strong but Vulnerable!"
    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    Shanti (nice name) is strong, vulnerable and seeking to save the rest of her people. It is an easy enjoyable listen.


    What did you like best about this story?

    Shanti does not follow directions unless she wants the same goal. She twists slang and the Kings English so much that is funny as heck.


    Which scene was your favorite?

    Running into the Captains bedroom before the attack.


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    Pretty much


    Any additional comments?

    Looking forward to Hunter
