Editorial Reviews

Review

"The way Severin and Havyn fight their attraction even as each of them continue to crave each other was heartbreaking. This was a really good novel, one that I thoroughly enjoyed reading and remember for quite some time." - Coffee Time Romance

"Gisby's description of her fantasy world of Arcathia and Oscia is strong; she quickly sets the limitations of the magic users and defines the characteristics of the Arcathian and Oscian populations with clarity. She is also very good at introducing various subplots; within the first few chapters she introduces the antagonism between her two main cultures, the appearance of an ancient race, in addition to the main romance and the obstacles the couples face." - Rainbow Reviews

"Annette Gisby is one of my new favorite authors to watch out for. The Chosen was simply a fantastic mixture of passion, longing, magic and kingdom intrigue...Annette Gisby has written a fantastic book with clandestine visits, secret dreams, and a fantastic ending
." - Bitten by Books

From the Author

I started writing The Chosen for National Novel Writing Month a few years ago. In my mind I wanted to write a fairy tale for adults set in a fantasy setting. Severin, the prince, came to me rather easily. I could picture what he looked like, what sort of person he was and how he would react to things around him. I had the prince, now all I needed was a princess for him to rescue.

But there was a problem, I couldn't picture this princess no matter how hard I tried. What was wrong? Why couldn't I picture this character? As usual, it was my characters who saved me. Severin was insistent that he wasn't interested in princesses, to rescue or otherwise. Now, if it was princes, that was another matter! In all my character developement, I'd failed to realise the fact that my prince was gay!

Well, that certainly put another spin on things and over the next few days, another character came to me: Havyn, who'd been a slave all his life and was certainly in need of rescue. Severin nodded wholeheartedly, for Havyn was a very handsome slave.

Of course, there wouldn't have been much conflict if all they did was meet and fall in love. But of course, even in a fantasy world being a gay prince wasn't easy. The kingdom needed heirs, that was
Severin's duty, not to love where he wished. And as for Havyn, he was apprenticed to an old-fashioned wizard after his rescue. A wizard who was of the opinion that remaining chaste was the only way for a wizard to keep his powers. Not to mention the fact that Severin's father bethrothed him to a princess without his knowledge and his future bride has disappeared...

I loved writing this story, I felt so strongly about all of my characters, even the not so nice ones. When I finished it was as if the friends who had been visiting me had gone home. But they weren't gone, for I could read about them anytime I wanted. Yes, I do read and re-read my own work, for I write the stories I want to read too.

I hope my readers will find some friends between the pages as well.

Take care,
Annette
