Toni's Review of The Chosen One by Gladys Quintal ***3 Stars***

Image
Trying to exist undetected in a human world with a human family, is hard enough when you are a vampire - but finding out your son is the fabled Chosen One, makes things even more difficult.

Will Alexi's love be enough to protect his precious child from the powers that be? Or will he be condemned to live out eternity alone.....
*************************************
The Chosen One starts immediately where Be Careful What You Wish For ends. 
In The Man of My Dreams you read about Alexi and Cassandra’s beginning.  In Be Careful What You Wish For you learn about an unknown history that is beginning to wind around Alexi and Cassandra, tightening ever so slowly and in The Chosen One all the roads converge into a grand battle.

Hello Everyone,

It's been quite awhile since I last spoke to you all.  Life is constantly full of dramas.

I have been working full-time for an Airline company doing their seat selections and noting files for special needs.  I enjoy the job itself but it's mentally draining.  At the end of the day I find it hard to come online and review books.

I have been reading tons mind you and thought I would let you know about a few of my favorites while I have some energy.  I promise to try harder to get back into the swing of things here and get a big party/giveaway going because it's been too long since our last.

The site is soon to hit 100 thousand views and that is something I truly want to celebrate with you all. You made it possible.



Alright, now on to the books.  The most recent series I just finished is "Gone" by Michael Grant.  It is a YA paranormal series.  I loved this series.  The characters are well rounded and the books are action packed.
I like how different this s…
