The Chosen: Book One: The Orb Quest Series by Cari Schaeffer – Review by Heather Bahm

The Chosen (The Orb Quest Series, #1)The Chosen by Cari Schaeffer
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

The Chosen (The Orb Quest Series, #1), by Cari Schaeffer, is a paranormal/fantasy novel that is fast paced and will have you quickly shifting chapter to chapter. Four friends are immediately immersed into a craziness as the story opens. Cari Schaeffer is thoroughly descriptive and creative. This is my first novel by this author and I could not put it down, as the words beckoned me to continue. Gemma and her friends were captivating and inquisitive. As the initial book to the series, it perfectly entices the reader to read the subsequent stories.

My rating: 4 of 5 stars

The Chosen (The Orb Quest Series Book #1) by Cari Schaeffer is a wonderful magical Young Adult fantasy story. Cari has done a great job of writing a tale full of magic and adventure, danger and action. Cari has done a fantastic job of weaving this story that is so vivid and detailed that you can clearly picture it. It is captivating and unique and the characters are down to earth and relatable, if not a little quirky but endearing in their difference.
There is mayhem and suspense, action and magic that you will get lost in. This is a great start to the series and is one not to be missed. I can’t wait to see where Cari takes us in the other books. I wished this one could have been longer but will have to wait for the next book. I hope it’s soon.

John Timothy Allie and Gemma have things in common that no one they are aware have in common. Having been friends for a long time they are still not prepared for why they have those things in common. I mean how many kids in high school find out they are destined to save the world or at least fight for it. They are now on a quest to find objects that have disappeared and the clock is ticking.
This was a book meant for youth readers but I adored it. Very clean and adventurous. I recommend it to anyone will to cross the divide.

The Chosen in the first book in The Orb Quest Series by Cari Schaeffer. It is a great YA fantasy full of adventure, magic, action, danger, secrets, discoveries, and fun. It has a (teenage) “Relic Hunters” x “The Librarians” x “The Sorcerer’s Apprentice” feel to the story. As I have come to expect from Ms. Schaeffer, she created a vivid, detailed and descriptive story, with wonderful scenes and backdrops to her captivating story. The characters were somewhat quirky and interesting and really drew me into the story. This is a very quick and easy read- but, personally, I would have love to have read a longer, more in-depth version of the story- so I could really explore and get ‘lost’ in it.
If you love YA fantasy and adventure, grab yourself a copy and join Gemma and her friends in a race against time- as there is a lot at stake in this quest for the Orbs.
Can’t wait for more!

Thank you, Ms. Schaeffer!

By: Cari Schaeffer
My Rating: 5 of 5 stars

The Chosen (The Orb Quest Series, #1) by Cari Schaeffer was a fast pace, hooking read, that had me so engrossed I nearly stayed up more then half the night to finish!

This book opens on a high explosive note that gets your heart pumping and raises your anxiety. That did it for me, in minutes I was hooked and couldn’t stop reading. Strong, engaging, and complex, this book will keep you on your toes, and flipping the pages. Being a past reader of Caria Schaeffer, this book lives up to the others and for me, maybe even better.

This book has a solid multi-layered plot, and a strong message of the bonds of friendship. This book is perfect for all ages, it has enough action, and darkness to satisfy older readers. Full of magic, and otherworldliness, there is never a dull moment. All of this is paired with an equally solid and engaging MC, Gemma. Strong, loyal and determined, I love her as the MC and I found her a great role model.

Overall this book is worth your time and energy. So please take my super high recommendation and my stamp of approval, that this book will take you on a dangerous, deadly adventure that will leave your head spinning for more.

Happy Reading.

My rating: 4 of 5 stars

This is a young adult story that took me on an adventure and action that made it fun to read. This is about four young adults that find they are “The Chosen” and their mission is to save the Orbs before it is too late. Is it to big a task for them? They are great characters that bring the story to life and keep you reading. They are full of drama and emotion. It is a great start to the series, I can’t wait to see what happens next. I highly recommend this book.

Destiny. Is it chosen by you, or for you? At seventeen, Gemma thought she knew the answer. Then life, and destiny, got in the way.
Gemma and her friends only want to finish high school and get on with their lives. But these friends share unusual characteristics that nobody else possesses. They dismiss them as quirks of nature until an otherworldly encounter at a local park reveal the four are marked as The Chosen.
When the friends realize who and what they are, they must enlighten themselves to the truth of our shared human history. It is not what we’ve all been taught, or what we believe. European royalty and their relentless quest for the most precious of jewels, World Wars and the re-drawing of maps, nothing is as it has always appeared. The history books have lied.
The Chosen must find the precious lost Orbs before time runs out. Their adventure will pit them against powerful forces and dangerous foes to fulfill their destiny and save humanity.
Can the future of humanity be trusted to four teenagers, even four extraordinary ones? For fans of the Librarians TV series and Harry Potter’s search for the Horcruxes.
