5.0 out of 5 stars Memorable characters October 12, 2008
Format:Paperback
Daria is a policewoman for a futuristic government. In order to gain revenge against a man who almost derailed her career and killed her best friend, she becomes a "Chosen" (vampire) and goes under cover with another Chosen named Alejandro Martinez in order to try and bust the bad guy. Alejandro and Daria have a hot and heavy history. Daria realizes right off that Alejandro might be man enough to melt through all the protective emotional armor she put on after her ordeal with the villain, and tries to prevent that from happening. Alejandro has other ideas.

This is a layered, complex story about good and evil. Great character development. The book is extremely erotic and romantic, yet still makes you think. The characters stay with you long after the story is finished. I can see why some may not like it since the author does write the villain in a sympathetic way. He's not a 100% evil mustache twirler by a long shot. But in my opinion he's bad guy, a threat to their society, a murderer and a slave trafficker. He got what he deserved in the end.

The heroine is no Mary Sue and she's no fluffy brainless bunny. She's abrasive at times, but I think this makes sense given her history. She changes and grows throughout the course of the story. Alejandro is just flat out luscious, strong without being that overpowering alpha male. Three cheers for a hero who is not a Caucasian male!

3.0 out of 5 stars Vampires in space? Yep. Vampires in space. May 29, 2009
Format:Paperback
Anya Bast writes hot sex scenes, I'll give her that. But this book suffers from some major narrative problems, to the point where I almost gave up halfway through. Luckily, the plot comes through in the latter half of the book, and I was glad I stuck with it.

What surprised me about this book is that it's not just a paranormal romance. It's a science fiction pararnormal. Vampires in space.

[blink]

Absolutely nothing on the cover or the back cover copy gave any indication of this. It's an interesting concept, to be sure, but for the most part, I feel like this book could have just taken place on a futuristic Earth instead of in a galaxy far, far away.

Which leads me to my first major problem with the book. The science is sketchy. I know that this probably won't bother many readers, but I'm enough of a nerd to really get annoyed at the scientific impossibilities. See, Earth has become overpopulated. That makes sense. People want to colonize other planets. No problems there, either. Astronomers discover a new galaxy, and some Earthlings move there.

Wait, wait. A new galaxy? Galaxies are really freaking far away. I mean, really far away. The two closest galaxies, the Large and Small Magellanic Clouds, which are satellite galaxies of the Milky Way, are 169,000 and 210,000 light years away. Even if humans could travel at the speed of light, it would take 169,000 to 210,000 years to get there. And according to our current understanding of physics, we can't even achieve a substantial fraction of the speed of light. Even if the characters used wormholes, it just doesn't make sense that we'd leave our own galaxy, which I'm sure has plenty of habitable star systems.

On top of the galaxy problem is the solar system that humans have colonized.

3.0 out of 5 stars The Chosen Sin by Anya Bast May 21, 2009
Format:Paperback
Anya Bast is yet another erotica author who is making the move to mainstream publishing. I'm a big fan of her Elemental Witches series. Her writing has always (ok, everything I've read) leaned toward the dark fantasy/paranormal and "The Chosen Sin" is no different. I found this book to be light erotica which is still pretty darn hot for mainstream. The story contains some light BDSM and anal play so if that's not for you...don't read it!

Daria has spent the last seven years of life burning to get revenge on the 'Chosen' (vampire) who made her love him, and then betrayed her and killed her best friend, among others. She lost her faith in love and friendship that night and has struggled in her career as an agent ever since. Now she'll finally get her chance at her enemy...but she must become 'Chosen' to do so.

Alejandro has loved Daria for longer than seven years. He was in her circle of friends when she was betrayed by the man she loved and she turned to him for comfort...of a sexy sort. Since that night, Alejandro was 'Chosen' and his life changed forever. He still battles the bad guys, he just polices the Chosen instead of humans. When he hears about Daria's mission, he fights to be both her partner and the one who 'Chooses' her. Alejandro is a man who knows what he wants...and he wants Daria...forever.

In all honesty, I didn't particularly enjoy the book until I got about halfway through. Daria's continual push/pull drove me nuts! I found her actions fairly cruel, in a way, since once she was turned she HAD to know how she was affecting Alejandro...if she'd bothered to think about anything except her revenge. Once I begin to dislike a heroine, it's very difficult for me to enjoy the story.

5.0 out of 5 stars A pleasant surprise November 22, 2008
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
I normally do not like romance at all. I avoid paranormal romance like the plague even though I love urban fantasy. When I read about the vampires Anya created for the Chosen Sin, I had to give it a try. I didn't expect to end up liking the book at all. I thought it would be hard for me to just sit back and enjoy it.

BUT I LOVED IT.

I thought the characters were great. The world building was fun too. Thanks Anya!
