More About the Author

Karen Dales is the Award Winning Author of "The Chosen Chronicles."

Kelley Armstrong, #1 New York Times Best Selling Author, says of Karen's work "Dark...compelling...that will keep readers turning the pages well past bedtime."

Michelle Rowen, National Best Selling Author says of Karen's novels, "A dark and gripping tale by a true mistress of supernatural fiction. Karen Dales brings fresh blood to the vampire genre."

Karen Dales began writing "Changeling: Prelude to the Chosen Chronicles" and "Angel of Death: Book One of the Chosen Chronicles" after she was inspired to create the character of The Angel for an on-line role playing game she was part of. It was from that experience the birth of The Angel was formed and through years of research Karen fleshed out The Angel and other characters that came to her.

Having completed York University's Creative Writing courses years previously, Karen began to write "Changeling" and "Angel of Death" as one novel. It was on their completions that it was clear they were two distinct novels of an evolving series that has come to include "Shadow of Death: Book Two of the Chosen Chronicles."

Karen is currently writing the next installment - "Thanatos: Book Three of the Chosen Chosen Chronicles."

Since the publication of both "Changeling" and "Angel of Death" in a limited edition single volume, Karen has been an Author Guest at, Polaris, AdAstra, FanExpo, and has appeared at Word On The Street. You can find out her future appearances by clicking http://karendales.com/appearances.html

Format: Paperback
I do not make it a habit to read paranormal books, but this one caught my attention and I decided to take my chances and read it. I am very glad I did! This is an excellent book. It grabbed my attention from the very beginning when a child was born who had white hair and red eyes. Immediately shunned by his mother who sends him away to die, I was pulled into the world Karen Dales magically wove. The prologue explains his childhood and the strange white creatures who haunt him and the way he became Chosen.

Then Book One begins, and I already developed an attachment to the grown child who is called the Angel and his mentor/Chooser Father Paul Notus. I really liked Notus. He is what I consider to be a moral compass, and the Angel longs to belong. However, he is different so he doesn't truly belong among other Chosen who now call themselves vampires. Both the Angel and Father Notus are back in London, and we are introduced to two very memorable characters: Jeanie Stuart and the Noble Fernando de Sagres.

The plot to this book is simple: someone is out to kill the vampires and it is up to the Angel and Fernando to find out who is behind it. (The Angel agrees in order to save Notus who is held captive.) Fernando is the opposite of Notus. While Notus is the moral compass, Fernando is a "do whatever feels right regardless of anyone else" kind of person. He was likable despite his savage nature, and I thoroughly enjoyed him. His comments had me laughing through most of the book. He's actually my favorite character.

Jeanie is the Angel's love interest, and she and Fernando clash, which was great to see. But yes, danger is lurking around the corner for Jeanie.

Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
This is a very rich novel; beautifully written. It is the kind of book that you won't want to put down--and that you won't ever want to end. Filled with romance, mystery, deception, and surprises, Karen Dales does a wonderful job of making the reader understand and care about the characters in her story. I was quickly drawn into the story, eagerly discovering the secret histories of each character and wondering what choices each would make. It was easy to become emotionally connected to them, even to the extent of becoming frustrated with some of the stubborn and bewildering traits a few of them displayed! The main characters were quite endearing, and perhaps I became a bit too attached to them.

Angel of Death is an exhilarating story in which Karen Dales seamlessly blends beautiful descriptive pieces into a fast-paced story. I was never bored or tempted to skim through this book--not once! I believe Angel of Death is destined to be a classic, and would make a wonderful movie production.

And, of course, I want the next book in the series to be published right now!

Format: Paperback
This book really exceeded my expectations regarding the depth and intricacy of the story. It really has many twists and is an excellently crafted work. Also, it is hard to put down and leave the story, making it both enjoyable and easy to read. I recommend this book to anyone regardless of the genre they usually usually read. They will find it enjoyable.

From page one you are sucked into the story that you are unable to put down until you have closed the book and still you want more. You truly feel as tho you are there watching all this unfold. A book that you can never stop turning the page until there are no more pages to turn.
