Goodreads Summary:

Is she strong enough to fulfill her legacy or will the dark side prevail?

After the gruesome battle on Xzanthar, General Arantu is on a mission to seek retribution, and he has Earth in his sights. Alinthia and her protectors ally with the government to shield innocent humans from attack, but that’s not their only concern.

As her eighteenth birthday approaches, Alinthia’s awakening draws closer, and no one knows what to expect.

Working from the secret society’s hidden base in the Valley of the Queens, Alinthia attempts to forge partnerships with alien allies in preparation for the ultimate battle. However, emotions are running high, distrust is rampant, and loyalty is hard-won.

Dane continues to push Alinthia away, causing additional friction and uncertainty when they can’t afford to be divided. Determined to avoid confronting what happened on Xzanthar, he throws himself into his duties, butting heads with everyone as he struggles to deal with the aftermath.

Presenting a united front has never been more important, but will their bond be enough to save Alinthia from the dark, evil forces still lurking in the shadows? Or are they all doomed to fail?

My Review:

If you’ve been following this series, then you know that Alinthia and her 4 protectors (Dane, Maddox, Beckett and Cooper) were brought together as babies and bonded with magic. Then then were ripped apart from each other and grew up the 4 protectors separated from Alinthia. They were taught of the prophecy that centered around Alinthia and her protectors, that their bond was important in helping her be the savior of the universe. But Alinthia grew up on earth with her memory wiped, not knowing of her protectors, their bond, or the prophecy.

Now that Alinthia is reunited with her protectors and the bond growing and her powers getting stronger, they run across some pretty traumatic things that happen to them. Now as a result of that some of the protectors’ bond with Alinthia is growing stronger, but some is growing non existent. My heart cries for suffering that goes on and i worry, because if they don’t repair the bond then Alinthia won’t be able to defeat General Arantu (the threat to the universe).

In this book, The Chosen One, things get really hot & steamy between Alinthia and her protectors. Except for one, where things are pretty cold & distant. Can Alinthia keep her protectors close and strengthen her bond? My heart was aching so much for all the hurting & pain. I had tears sliding down my face. But she has her other protectors who tell her they love and cherish her all the time. They’re so sweet and so loving. When General Arantu‘s men attack earth Alinthia takes them out. But Alinthia has nightmares where some creature is trying to kill her and it’s like what happens in her nightmares really happens, so she becomes afraid to sleep.

This book touches on the science fiction aspect, but i think it focused more on there relationships as the Chosen One and her Protectors. Their bond is important, and we see how the three of them have opened up to it and become so much closer to Alinthia. But we also see that link that is fragile, that is breaking and needs help and isn’t accepting it. This book was so important in bringing us to the final book. I loved it. Those complex characters were written so well, not just their dialogue and their thoughts, but their actions as well. I just love this series and really look forward to the last book!! Very Highly Recommended!!!
