Series: #1 Seer
Author: Rachelle Dekker
Release date: May 19, 2015
Description: “Not to be Chosen would yield a cruel fate of my own making.” Like all citizens since the Ruining, Carrington Hale knows the importance of this day. But she never expected the moment she’d spent a lifetime preparing for—her Choosing ceremony—would end in disaster. Ripped from her family, she’ll spend her days serving as a Lint, the lowest level of society. She knows it’s her duty to follow the true way of the Authority. But as Carrington begins this nightmare, rumors of rebellion rattle her beliefs. The whispers contradict everything she’s been told; yet they resonate deep within. Then Carrington is offered an unprecedented chance at the life she’s always dreamed of, but she can’t shake the feeling that it may be an illusion. With a killer targeting Lints and corruption threatening the highest levels of the Authority, Carrington must uncover the truth before it destroys her.
Thoughts: I have to admit that I first heard about Rachelle from a facebook page before The Choosing was released. Who’s facebook page? Ted Dekker, her father. I am a huge fan of Ted’s and after reading the synopsis of The Choosing I thought it sounded interesting.
I am so happy that I finally read this. Rachelle has some real talent. She has a way of pulling you into the story and making you want to keep turning the pages. It is a story of Carrington Hale finding her true self and not the one that the community has said that she is. It is also has a bit of mystery in it. I had gotten it narrowed down to two possibilities. It was one of them but I wasn’t disappointed.
I am now counting down to the release of the next book. I don’t just mean the sequel to The Choosing but I would love to know what other books Rachelle has in store for the future.
