“Kyana brings a new dimension to the ranks of kick-butt heroines….I’m looking forward to more of her adventures.”
—Alyssa Day, New York Times bestselling author
The ranks of tough, beautiful, and sexy heroines who battle supernatural evil have grown since the early days of Buffy the Vampire Slayer—and none are tougher than author Sable Grace’s half Vampyre-half Lychen warrior Kyana. Paranormal romance fans who regularly devour the bestselling novels of Jeaniene Frost, Pamela Palmer, and Sherrilyn Kenyon will be mesmerized by Chosen, Grace’s third breathtaking Dark Breeds adventure. This time her unstoppable avenger takes on her new role as Goddess of the Hunt, joining with Ryker—the new Zeus and Kyana’s one true love—to save the world from vampires, demons, shapeshifters, and all manner of supernatural creatures of the night, in a battle that could carry them to the fiery depths of Hades itself.
About the Author
Sable Grace is the writing team of Heather Waters and Laura Barone,long-time critique partners and friends who came together by fluke to discover their voices fit quite nicely during a writing experiment. The story became far too interesting to put down and Sable Grace was born.
Both Heather and Laura reside in Florida, are happily married to their real-life heroes, and are, well, complete opposites. Still, there’s enough common ground for them to weave their words together in the voice of Sable Grace.

Brought to you by OBS reviewer Heidi Beware!! It’s a bumpy-spoiler-filled road ahead! Chosen picks up about six weeks after Bedeviled left off. Kyana is getting used to sharing her temple and her bed with Ryker, both of whom have their full god powers now. Haven is being kept in the healing circle to finish her cleansing. Kyana wakes from a horrible dream to find the ghost of Haven’s twin sister, Hope, staring at her. She warns Kyana that ‘he’ is coming and that they must hurry. Ryker (who also sees Hope) and Kyana rush off to check on Haven. They get her out of the building right before it implodes, burying some inside. Haven tells Kyana that she is feeling Cronos and that she is having strong dreams of him. So they visit Morpheus, the God of Dreams, so that Kyana can connect to Haven’s dreams. What they see is shocking. Cronos is digging up graves to bring the deceased back to life and build his army. It’s even more terrifying once they realize that it’s happening in real life, not just in Haven’s dreams. Cronos is back and has one thing on his mind; destroy Olympus and all its inhabitants so that he can rule all three realms. Now the gods must band together to destroy this threat, but it won’t be an easy battle and lives will be lost. Do Ryker and Kyana have what it takes to survive? I have read all three of the Dark Breed novels back-to-back, and I have to admit that I’ve gotten pretty bored with the storyline. Here, we are at book three and we’re still facing the same problem; Cronos. It just doesn’t seem much has changed between each book and the whole thing is getting pretty tired and dull. I did, however, enjoy the more personal scenes. For instance, learning more about Ares and his past with Ryker’s mother. It was nice to finally have it proven that Ares isn’t the jerk that Ryker always thought he was. I was a little surprised to learn that Ares is indeed his father though. With all the talk of Zeus’s treatment of women and the few remarks of Ryker’s resemblance to him (before he had all of Zeus’s power) in the previous books, I really thought that was where they were headed with it. I’m glad to hear that wasn’t the case as I like little surprises in my reading. Cronos raising Kyana’s human husband was pretty predictable, but I still enjoyed the scene. Especially when her savior rode to save the day once again. And, I truly thought with all the fertility talk that we would find out at the end of the book that Kyana was pregnant, but it never got to that. There was too much else going on. One thing I really didn’t like was not so much the return of Henry, but the position he gained in this book. I felt it was just a little too far-out there to expect the gods to accept him as a chosen after being a dark breed that they had hunted down and killed and then him being brought back to life by their biggest enemy. I didn’t feel he had any ill intent while reading the book, but if I had been one of the gods I wouldn’t have trusted him. They didn’t even take him in front of Jordan Faye to verify his intent.

Alert--some spoilers. I really enjoyed this book. I do feel some of what the other reviewer stated about Cronos--it was enough already! I am glad that his part of the story is over and I hope it stays that way!! I enjoyed delving into Ryker's background and learning more about his history with Ares. I hope there are more stories involving Ryker, Kyana and all the other gods/goddesses and their Chosen. Thanks for another great novel!
