My Review

Chosen Ones is a book kicking off the series The Aedyn Chronicles.

I loved it, and while the storyline is its own, the story telling reminded me of the Narnia books.  People who like those will likely enjoy Chosen Ones.

It’s high quality writing and I’m looking forward to the subsequent books in the series.

The pictures and chapter opening pages that appear in the book, contribute to the tale meant for children, but overall a good read for everybody.  If you read stories aloud with your family, this would be a good one to add to your list.
