“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.
First off a huge thank you to Tyndale House Publishers for sending me this title for review. Second, I LOVE a good dystopian, some of my favorites being Divergent and The Giver. Once I read the synopsis of this book I knew I needed to read it. So glad I did! I really loved this, the story was well written and well paced, the characters were well written and easy to love (or hate). The first page grab's you and drags you in and the last one brings closure with promises for more in the future book(s) in the series. I love how this is written by a Christian author, the daughter of the famous Ted Dekker and yet doesn't seem to have the normal Christian vibe that most others do, it doesn't sugar coat anything, it's more nitty gritty then other Christian author's are willing to get into when writing a novel. It's not written to uplift you but to make you really think about what you are reading and how the story should affect our way of thinking. Her and her father have a very similar writing style, her's with a different edge to it. It's hard to really explain, plus it's been forever since I have read a Ted Decker novel anyways. Overall AMAZING! Great work Rachelle and I look forward to reading more of your book's in the future.
I received this book for review through Tyndale's Blogger review program in exchange for my honest review.
