The story bounces around between three POVs: Juliet, Connor and Barrett.
- Juliet seems to have gotten over her trust issues - by seemingly following her gut and trusting too much. Or maybe not.
- Connor's trapped in a loop of trying to better himself, because he's crazily in love with Juliet. And then drinking himself crazy because he's disappointed in love. Which seems totally immature until I'm reminded that he's not even 18, and an orphan with issues and a difficult past.
- With Barrett, you finally get a glimpse into who the Alphians are - and how they're not all as bad as they're made out to be.
Of all the characters in this book, Sicheii would probably be my favourite, even if he isn't alive at this stage - just because he is this mystical, wise guy who spouts philosophical nonsense and annoys the heck out of Juliet. And makes random appearances throughout the book. While dead.
There are deeper themes hidden throughout - distribution of wealth, the perfect society/world (does Utopia exist?), sacrifice, true love, responsibility, trust, wise choices, logic vs emotions, the greater good, addiction, privilege. Weighty themes, no doubt, but not out of place or too difficult to comprehend.
I'd recommend it for the younger end of young adult readers (mostly because the juvenile love side plot got a bit tiring) but it makes up for it with a well-thought out ending.
Note: I received a free ARC from the author in exchange for an honest review.
This book makes you think but it keeps you jumping from one thought to another between what is right and wrong. Could Juliet have been betrayed by her grandfather or her wind spirit? All she knew was she had to choose the right path to her destiny but she was so confused by it all, everything she'd been told seemed wrong, how could that be?
You want Juliet to find herself and you will her to find peace in the chaos that's surrounded her.
It makes you think at every turn of the pages, it's brilliantly written and I really wish there were more to come, even though it was the best ending that I've read in a long time and nothing like you expect it to be. It leaves you with a warm and cosy feeling inside.
I would recommend everyone to read it even if you've not read any of the others as it can be picked up and understood without reading any of the others, but I would definitely recommend the rest of the series to everyone too. This is one series I'll read again because I'm sure I've missed things the first time around, I'll have a better understanding of it and even though I know the ending I'll enjoy re reading it again seeing it through a new light.
This story has fantasy, romance, and suspense. Even though it is a YA book, it has plenty to offer for the adult reader. I found myself totally immersed in the Chosen's adventure and could relate to each character. The characters were very well developed and interesting. There were bits of humor that made me laugh and good v/s evil that made for a very well rounded story. I look forward to reading more from this author.
