Overview

It was a dark and stormy night when the Stranger came to call. Sarah Grey’s second child was breached; the twin was going to die.

The Stranger offered help.

Twenty years later, Raven Grey, the second twin born on that fated night, is now an extraordinarily beautiful woman. With a gift.

But what is the price to pay for that gift?

If Raven and her brother can not escape the handsome and powerful elf prince, outwit the dark and dangerous bounty hunter, and defeat the ancient, mighty Death Mage - Raven is sure to learn just what that price is.

And pay dearly.

Editorial Reviews

Pieces of this story still come back to me unexpectedly more than a month after I first finished it. The author has a writing style so visual and evocative it's impossible not to be transported right to the center of the world she creates. Mythical, magical and heart-breakingly human in its depiction of familial, romantic, and parental love, the story of Raven and her introduction to her unique inheritance, as her brother stands loyally by her side, is like nothing else I have ever read.

Enter a world of magic like no other. I'm used to elves being the good guys and demons being the bad guys and so it goes. Not so in the Chosen Soul. Reincarnation, magic, demons doing good and elves doing bad, it's all mixed up in the this extraordinary novel by Heather Killough-Walden. This is the first of a series and I was so disappointed to find that the second novel featuring these complex characters, was not available yet. I will certainly buy it because I want to see the characters again.

I'm so impressed with this author. Every book I've read of hers leaves me wanting more. I burn through them so fast I'm disappointed when I finish them. I can't wait for the next book in the series! **She has a monthly email newsletter, a blog and a FB page. I highly recommend them since she keeps all her fans posted on when her new stuff is coming out.

If you like... A fast paced book Well developed character The twists and turns of a creative plot Then Heather Killough-Walden's "The Chosen Soul" should definitely be on your Must Read list. I couldn't put it down and didn't want it to end. The next book in the series, "Drake of Tanith", is due to be released in February 2012. I will be ready to continue the journey with Raven, Loki, friends and some not-so-friendly ones.

Loved the story and characters!!! The author is very descriptive; she makes you feel like you're right in the middle of it all... cant wait for the next book to come out in Feb. (In love with Drake, he's super sexy!!)

This genre of fiction is not what I'd normally be drawn to, but I came across this book and decided to give it a whirl. Now I'm anxious for the next book to come out! The story sucks you in and I couldn't put it down...the author paints the pictures of the scenes so vividly!

I got this book when it was free thinking ok i will give it a shot why not and i couldn't have been more pleased. The story grabs you i couldn't put it down and when i got to the end i wanted to scream for more. I can tell you this the waiting is killing me i cant wait for February to get here so i can read some more when the second book comes out. I was so impressed that i bought 5 more of her books with other series she is writing. This author will defiantly be added to my must read list

I always appreciate a nice, long (and cheap!) Nook book! This story was unique, fairly engrossing, and 800-plus pages long. Yay!

Hooked........... As usual I got to this series late. The great part of that happening is you have more than one book to read and your not sitting on pins and needles WAITING for the next one. The bad part, it happens anyway. This was fantastic and then I ran as fast as I could to Drake of Tanith. Now WAITING for next in series. ****Heather, stop what your doing and give me more of the chosen soul series****

Ok, so this is the first book that I've read from this author and in my opinion it was "eh". I just didn't really feel that there was enough of an exciting storyline for me to be drawn into because (1.) There wasn't really much character development, except for Raven and that's even iffy (I understand that she's the main character and all, but other characters could have been given a better background story or something). (2.) Random characters were constantly being introduced with no explanation, except a lengthy character description of how amazing everyone apparently looked, minus every other bad guy but the main antagonist. (3.) I did not like how Raven easily accepted everything that was going on around her, even accepting her "true" father like nothing and just taking his word without a second thought, was hot and heavy for one guy and then for another without even knowing them and so on. I also did not like how it ended at all. I know this is a fantasy book, but I've read better fantasy/romance books then this one that had really good storylines. Listen to all of her other fans, because I'm currently reading another book of hers (both which were purchased for a $1) and that one is grabbing my attention more. Don't let this one book ruin your perception of her as an author, because she doesn't seem that bad.

I bought this book on my nook because I am currently waiting for the next book in a series. So I was bored. The book isn't bad and I was ecstatic that I paid only $1.00 for a 892 page nook book (the longest nook book I've read so far). However, I was not impressed with the characters, except for Raven. All the others are very underdeveloped and there are so many new characters throughout that I was pausing often to remember who was who. I was also unnerved with the fact at how easily Raven accepted the story of her birth night. She also immediately forgot her parents, which I could forgive because she was trying to escape with her brother. But once she reached Kriver, she had no questions, thoughts, doubts running through her mind! Even when she called Malphas, she accepted it and he taught her nothing before sending her back to Kriver! I am still reading and I can appreciate the excitement the author is trying to create, but it definitely has room for improvement.

This book was one of the best i have read in a long time. I would recommend this to book to anyone. The only thing that was disappointing is having to wait on the next book in the series. Can't wait!!!!

It has been a little while since I read this one, but just going through the quick synopsis of the book has taken me back into the story. I love how these books transport me to a different place.

Just when I think one series is great and I'm left uncertain about others, Heather Killough Walden outdoes herself and blows me away! I was intrigued as to whom, the stranger was and she doesn't disappoint! Im trying to teach myself not to continuously read because Im done in a day or two and Im stuck anxiously awaiting the next installment!

There are thousands of books to look through and I am so glad I was lucky enough to run across this one. I am going to be reading more by this author . I highly recommend this book to everyone I was captured by the first chapter and couldnt wait to see what was going to happen next. Read it you will love the characters.

The Chosen Soul by Heather Killough-Walden has to be one of my favorite books ever. It is one of the only books that I frequently re-read. This book offers everything I like to read. I am really anticipating the conclusion to the trilogy
