Beloved author Christina Dodd gives you a series to rival her own brilliant Darkness Chosen in this intoxicating new novel of the Chosen, where an ancient rivalry threatens the balance of the modern world. When the world was young, twins were born. One brought light to a dark world. The other, darkness and danger. They gathered others around them, men and women destined to use their powerful gifts for good or evil. Today, their descendents walk the earth as the Chosen, and the ultimate battle has begun... Brilliant but predictable and proper Rosamund Hall has lived her life buried in universities and libraries, discounting the legend of the Chosen as a myth. Until Aaron Eagle shows up at her door. Aaron both unsettles and enthralls her, but she can't resist his irresistible offers of clandestine visits to private museums, the hunt for a mysterious prophecy, or a makeover that unleashes her untamed soul. With the promise of a love that will defy fate itself, Rosamund is forced to confront the truth about the Chosen...and the man who sweeps her into a dangerous world of dark secrets.

Although this wasn't perfect (but what is perfect in life?), I enjoyed it a lot. I liked the messages here, about grabbing onto love, even if nothing is guaranteed; facing your fears head on; choosing to do the right thing, even when walking away or being selfish is easiest; and finding value in so...
