The first in a YA extension of Dekker’s best-selling Circle series for adults, marketed primarily to Christian audiences, this briskly paced adventure starts with a football game. The game will select four new leaders from among teens who have just joined the Forest Guard to fight against the Horde—disfigured beings created when people fail to bathe regularly in sacred lake waters. Rejected for service, Johnis takes the ball over the finish line anyway, making him one of the four who are sent on a quest. Along the way, the teen learns he can communicate with mythical creatures and stumbles upon a mission of even greater urgency. This title’s publisher is best known for its Christian-interest titles, but while some readers may perceive subtexts in the teens’ monotheistic religion and in the plot’s elemental clash between good and evil, Dekker’s inventive approach to these themes will appeal to genre readers of many faiths. Grades 7-10. --Diana Tixier Herald --This text refers to the Preloaded Digital Audio Player edition.

Don't get me wrong; for young adult fiction it's a good read. It's just not cut from the same block as the other relevant works.
Some have said that this is not a spin-off of the original Circle Trilogy. They don't know what they're saying. This series is solidly based in the original trilogy and can not be fully understood apart from it.
Beware, you may want to order the next book as you begin the first because you won't want to wait to long to read the next installment.
If you are new to Ted Dekker's writings, then get ready for a suspenseful, unexpected ride because he is known for plot twists that will keep you addicted to his books.
These new recruits are sent on one last training mission to prove their worth to Thomas and the Guard. They soon discover there is an even greater mission in store for them, and the survival of Elyon's followers depends on their success. They must seek out and collect the legendary Books of History before they fall into evil hands. Along the way Johnis discovers that not only was he born to lead, but his destiny is greater than he could have ever imagined.
Ted Dekker is one of the most prolific and successful CBA authors to date, and with the beginning of this great new series he only continues to elevate his status. Chosen is an extraordinary tale that builds upon the unforgettable world Dekker created in Black, Red, and White. Adventure, action, and suspense abound, and the world and characters of Elyon are rich and skillfully fashioned. The subtle connections to Dekker's previous works are a clever and fun addition to the enjoyment.
Chosen is being marketed as Young Adult Fiction, but young and old alike will enjoy this latest offering. Dekker fans will love this new story from the Circle universe and new readers will undoubtedly be sucked in to the greatness that is Ted Dekker. This is a superb beginning to what is sure to be a fantastic series.
