Editorial Reviews

Review

“A tense, thought provoking, highly evocative read that stirs every emotion, Chosen Ones is un-put-downable, and a must for Dystopian lovers.” ~ Trisha Wolfe, Author of DESTINY'S FIRE

“The ending of this book shattered my heart and I am really anxious for the next installment.” ~ Suzanne, Paranormal Book Fan

“Tiffany wrote a beautiful story with such emotion my heart felt like it was soaring in some areas and breaking in others! She captured everything I was looking for and I can’t wait to read book 2!” ~ Jaime, Two Chicks on Books

“This debut instantly takes Tiffany Truitt to the top of the Dystopian top reads list. You won't want to miss out on this ambitious story.” ~Winter Haven Book

“…what makes Chosen Ones truly amazing isn’t just the strong heroine, or the wonderfully done romance. Its Truitt’s writing. I will gladly read anything that she puts out. With the way that she writes, it is quite easy to lose yourself in her words. If you’re looking for a new dystopian novel to dive into, look no further than Chosen Ones.” ~ Nicole’s YA Book Haven

“There were some scenes that left me with my mouth open. Some were raw and extreme. Tess stood strong every step of the way though. I really liked that her character stayed consistent throughout the whole book.” ~ Damaris, Good Choice Reading

“Tiffany creates a world that is believable and unique. Tess is a kick butt kind of a character that grows with the struggles she has to go through and you can’t help but love her for it. James is a boy with a heart like no other, who feels deeply and loves completely. When I got to the last pages of the book, I sat there staring at the blank page, willing it to turn into book two!” ~ Valia Writes Things


“It was phenomenal, breath-taking, heart-pounding and epic! The storyline will leave you speechless and the romance will leave you breathless! ~ K-Books


“Full of suspense, danger, drama, and even forbidden love thrown in, Chosen Ones was everything I had expected from the book blurb.” ~ Pages from my thoughts







“…what makes Chosen Ones truly amazing isn’t just the strong heroine, or the wonderfully done romance. Its Truitt’s writing . . . If you’re looking for a new dystopian novel to dive into, look no further.” — Book Haven

From the Back Cover


Life is bleak but uncomplicated for sixteen-year-old Tess, living in a not-too-distant future where the government, faced with humanity's extinction, created the Chosen Ones, artificial beings who are extraordinarily beautiful, unbelievably strong, and unabashedly deadly.

When Tess begins work at Templeton, a Chosen Ones training facility, she meets James, and the attraction is immediate in its intensity, overwhelming in its danger. But there is more to Templeton than Tess ever knew. Can she stand against her oppressors, even if it means giving up the only happiness in her life?

Customer Reviews

The book focused on these two, but some of the secondary characters were developed well too.
Chels
I know it's James that changes that but I just felt like she was too much of a before and after girl where I never clearly saw the change.
Valerie StuckInBooks
The chosen ones were supposed to protect the naturals and yet they were the very reason for their demise.

Format: Paperback
The Chosen Ones, being all male, are the genetically created and improved `saviours'. The soldiers that will go out and fight the war and keep the naturals protected.

The Creators are naturals, humans. They are the best of the best scientists, making these beautiful boys who are left in a coma until they are thirteen. They are fed video images directly into their brains of how they are to perceive the world and the `naturals' when they are awakened or unplugged.

Once I got into this book, there was no stopping. The pages kept turning, I was in a reading trance. There are twists and sad moments, brutal moments. All is not what it seems.

I loved the use of classic books like Mary Shelley's Frankenstein, passages woven into the storyline, very cleverly done.

Books were a reminder of a time when the world wasn't perfect but it was better than what the Council were doing to the humans and what the world had become. The Council, I don't understand these people? The rules are brutal , the punishment swift if you do not follow them.

This story got quite frightening the more you read, the more you realised what was actually going on. I still don't understand how the world got to where it got, but I am willing to overlook this as the characters within the pages draw you in. I don't understand anything outside of Tess' compound. There are snippets of information. My mind was trying to grab hold of some `whys'. Tessa's father's letters helped a great deal.

The book starts with Emma, Tess' sister ,who is married to Robert and dying from ......well, I wasn't quite sure. She was pregnant. She died. There was a lot of blood. If you get pregnant, you pretty much are signing your death notice. Something has happened to the female anatomy.

Format: Paperback
This book caused me to lose so much sleep! I could not stop reading because I had to find out what was going to happen to Tess, the main character. Tess has been forced to take on her sister's sentence and work in the Chosen Ones mansion. Beautiful, brilliant, and the perfect killers, the all male, artificial human army of Chosen Ones protect the Western United States. Since the Fourth World War, the country has been divided. The East and West fight ruthlessly in the shattered Midwest. Worst of all, the women of the world are sterile. Humanity is going extinct.
Tess tries as hard as she can not to feel. Her goals are to survive and work. These goals change after she meets James, a Chosen One who shares her love of reading and music. The more her relationship with James develops, the deeper she becomes involved in a movement to resist the oppressive West Government. Will Tess escape tyranny?
I loved Tess's character. She wasn't the typical heroine who needed a hero. She maintained a strong exterior while still flirting with romance with love interest James. James was a good character, but did not outshine Tess. He had that charismatic feel about his character. The book focused on these two, but some of the secondary characters were developed well too. The plot was unique. Mass infertility and a dystopic feel will leave the reader fanatically turning the pages. This book is recommended to young adult/teen readers.

Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
I received an ARC of this book months ago for this blog tour. Unfortunately, the book release date and blog tour got pushed back and so I put off reading it until closer to the blog tour date. Now after reading this book, I really wish I would have read it as soon as I got my hands on it! Dystopias used to be one of my favorite genres, unfortunately a big problem I had with them was that they were at times too bleak and depressing and most of them didn't focus on a love relationship (which is a huge thing for me). Because of this, I was in a bit of a dystopia funk and the last dystopia I attempted to read was a DNF for me (The Lost Code). I was a little bit nervous going into this book, but I was immediately intrigued with the 1st paragraph and I knew this book was going to be different.

Women have lost the ability to give birth and are dying along with their unborn babies. As a solution for the dying race, the council as created the chosen ones, artificial beings with special abilities. But the council and the chosen ones are keeping secrets. Will these secrets help the dying human race or will it only succeed in further destroying them?

Although Tess comes off as cold and heartless at first, I can understand why she feels this way. After losing her sister she feels that love equals a death sentence and she vows to never let herself get close to anyone or care for them. When she begins working at Templeton, she meets James who is a chosen one. Tess is normally afraid by the chosen ones because they are not natural beings and they are too perfect. But when she notices that James has a scar on his chin, she is immediately intrigued by him. She wants to know why he isn't perfect like the others and what he did to get the scar.
