I loved where the story went and the relationship developments, unfortunately the proofreading sucked. The multiple errors in another Scarlett Dawn series (which I loved) was instrumental in in my decision to drop another intriguing series, and it looks like I will stop here unless there is a sale or I can get it on loan from a friend. I love this writer's ability to weave a tale, but I hate the disrespect to the readers by allowing the quality standard to be set so low.
Examples of errors: heal=heel, their=they're, safeties=safety's, ir=if, rapid=rabid, less=lest. Many, many, many instances were possessive apostrophes were dropped (making something a plural instead of something belonging to someone), paragraphs ending with a comma when an em dash or ellipses should have been used. Missing commas or bad punctuation making some sentences confusing or unreadable.
Although some parts seemed to drag on longer than needed, Chosen One had a beautiful story with some exciting twists and reveals, ruined by a sloppy mess of errors.
It pains me to rate this as 3.5 stars. I love Ms Scarlett Dawn and I love the Forever Evermore Series even more. I loved Caro in this book. I loved Sin and I loved the others. Unfornately, this book felt more like a prequel or an in between book. It was long and satisfied by Caro need until next year....but I felt like not much happened. I just feel like Ms Dawn was setting the stage for the next book. In this book, it was hard to pin down the plot or the climax of this book.
Though, I loved how we learnedly more about Caro and her powers. We learned more about the spirit world which was great. Maybe I'm the only one, but I was slightly disappointed in this book.
Though she did end the book with a cliffhanger as usual. The book ended and I was shocked. I thought something was wrong with my copy. I had to read the few pages three times and then chuckle evil because I still was so lost. I started this book team Merrick....but Sin....I may have to jump ship.
I still can't wait for the next book to come out.
Chosen One by Scarlett Dawn is the 6th installment in her massive series Forever Evermore and the third for her heroine Caro. This book was lukewarm for me. There were parts I loved, parts I disliked, and parts that were just “meh.” I wanted to love this book because I really like Caro, but there were some issues that I just couldn’t overcome.
➣ Caro! I really enjoy this character. She is one of those that just faces the world and what it brings her head on and doesn’t care what others might think about her. She’s feisty, courageous, and loyal. Seriously I root for her all the way through the book.
➣ Time travel: if you read the last book then you know that we were left with a major cliffhanger and Caro forty years in the past. Personally I loved this development. I haven’t read the first trilogy in this series so I don’t really know the elders that are fleshed out in this book, but I loved seeing more of them, getting to know them better, AND then going back and rereading parts of Caro’s books when they were “first” introduced. So much makes sense now!
➣ Merrick….I won’t say anymore than that because of spoilers….but y’all *swoon*
➣ Cast of characters keeps growing and I’m not confused! I love this. Whenever there are a ton of characters, I usually need a glossary to refer back to in order to keep them all straight. However Scarlett Dawn has done a fantastic job of making each character unique enough that I don’t need it.
➣ The pacing: at times, the pacing for this book was fast, like I couldn’t set it down or turn the pages fast enough for my own liking…that fast. But then about the midway point the pacing went from blazing to ice cold. I’m not sure what happened, but it was like all of a sudden it was almost – dare I say it – boring *cringes* I’m not sure what to think about it. Then probably the last 50 pages the pace picked back up.
➣ The love interest or interests? I’m not sure. I didn’t really follow well what was going on. It felt like the author was possibly setting up a reverse harem type situation for our Caro and I’m not so sure that follows with her character. Maybe it’s just me, but Caro doesn’t seem like the type to be into more than one and she sure doesn’t like to share so….I’m just confused. The main love interest was a hate-to-love type thing and while it worked in the beginning of the book, it got real old REAL quick.
➣ Plot? Ummmm….y’all I can’t even tell you what this book is about because I don’t know myself. While I love Caro, her story so far has lacked direction. I’m not really sure what’s going on, what she is trying to accomplish, or why she is doing what she is doing. I’m lost. I noticed this in the last book and had hoped that this one would begin tying some threads together. So far no such luck.
Overall Chosen One was just an okay read for me. I’m interested enough in Caro to continue reading the series but I’m also disappointed that I’m still so lost in her story. I wanted….no NEEDED her story to begin making sense by now. Despite this I will continue to read and follow the author as I do love her storytelling ability. I have confidence that in Caro’s last book (which I believe the next one is) all these loose ends and directionless plot will make sense because Dawn is that good! If you enjoy the series, you don’t want to miss this next installment! If you haven’t read the series, than I highly suggest you begin with the first book and set some time aside to binge.
