The Chosen: Book One: The Orb Quest Series by Cari Schaeffer
Fate and destiny. Some say you make your own, others say it was written in the stars from before you were born. These four friends share unique physical characteristics which mark them as “ The Chosen”. They are destined to save the world. Everything they learned in history class is wrong. In a race against time, they need to relearn world history, manage their new powers and find some magical orbs, all while being hunted. Not too much to ask from teenagers, right?
As this is the first book in the Orb Quest series, the ending is open. Although it isn’t a cliffhanger, nothing is resolved. This book represents the start of their journey, the discovery of their powers and what they are capable of. Overall, I enjoyed the book. I did find parts to be a little slow but I understand everything needs to be explained, the author is setting a base for the rest of the series. There was enough action thrown in to keep it exciting. I think their powers are awesome. The characters are likeable and have a good rapport between each other. I have a feeling there is an attraction between Gemma and John and I don’t trust Tyler at all. There is something fishy about him. I’m curious to see what happens next so I’m looking forward to the next book.
