Overview


Life is bleak but uncomplicated for sixteen-year-old Tess, living in a not-too-distant future where the government, faced with humanity's extinction, created the Chosen Ones, artificial beings who are extraordinarily beautiful, unbelievably strong, and unabashedly deadly.

When Tess begins work at Templeton, a Chosen Ones training facility, she meets James, and the attraction is immediate in its intensity, overwhelming in its danger. But there is more to Templeton than Tess ever knew. Can she stand against her oppressors, even if it means giving up the only happiness in her life?

Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher

“A tense, thought provoking, highly evocative read that stirs every emotion, Chosen Ones is un-put-downable, and a must for Dystopian lovers.” ~ Trisha Wolfe, Author of DESTINY'S FIRE

“The ending of this book shattered my heart and I am really anxious for the next installment.” ~ Suzanne, Paranormal Book Fan

“Tiffany wrote a beautiful story with such emotion my heart felt like it was soaring in some areas and breaking in others! She captured everything I was looking for and I can’t wait to read book 2!” ~ Jaime, Two Chicks on Books

“This debut instantly takes Tiffany Truitt to the top of the Dystopian top reads list. You won't want to miss out on this ambitious story.” ~Winter Haven Book

“…what makes Chosen Ones truly amazing isn’t just the strong heroine, or the wonderfully done romance. Its Truitt’s writing. I will gladly read anything that she puts out. With the way that she writes, it is quite easy to lose yourself in her words. If you’re looking for a new dystopian novel to dive into, look no further than Chosen Ones.” ~ Nicole’s YA Book Haven

“There were some scenes that left me with my mouth open. Some were raw and extreme. Tess stood strong every step of the way though. I really liked that her character stayed consistent throughout the whole book.” ~ Damaris, Good Choice Reading

“Tiffany creates a world that is believable and unique. Tess is a kick butt kind of a character that grows with the struggles she has to go through and you can’t help but love her for it. James is a boy with a heart like no other, who feels deeply and loves completely. When I got to the last pages of the book, I sat there staring at the blank page, willing it to turn into book two!” ~ Valia Writes Things

“It was phenomenal, breath-taking, heart-pounding and epic! The storyline will leave you speechless and the romance will leave you breathless! ~ K-Books

“Full of suspense, danger, drama, and even forbidden love thrown in, Chosen Ones was everything I had expected from the book blurb.” ~ Pages from my thoughts

“…what makes Chosen Ones truly amazing isn’t just the strong heroine, or the wonderfully done romance. Its Truitt’s writing . . . If you’re looking for a new dystopian novel to dive into, look no further.” — Book Haven

VOYA - Sherrie Williams
In the midst of a second American Civil War, nearly all pregnancies end in the death of both mother and child. In need of soldiers, the government creates a breed of warriors in the lab. Called the Chosen Ones, they are handsome, strong and gifted. Once created, they stay in suspended animation until their teen years, when they begin intensive training in academics, the arts, and fighting in the war. Tess, a fifteen-year-old “natural” born before the world changed, begins her mandated service in their training center. She becomes close to a Chosen One named James who is different, both in his scar defying the perfection of his kind and in his growing love for Tess--a love that is forbidden and dangerous to them both. This debut novel (the starter in a projected series) concludes with a dramatic cliffhanger that will draw readers back for the second volume. The character development among the central characters is rather thin, and readers may struggle with a great many peripheral characters flooding into the story, to the point that, at times, it is difficult to keep them (or their shifting motives and allegiances) straight. The romance that is the heart of the book emerges with little plot development to justify the drama and proclamations of young love that follow. Some readers may find this book to be melodramatic, but it will appeal to teen readers with a taste for seemingly doomed dystopian romance. Ages 12 to 18.
