This book is a page turner folks! The author skillfully weaves together historical threads and epic human themes in a story beginning in ancient Egypt and culminating in 2001. Rames II is doomed when he is duped into believing the magic of the Hebrew God is equal to the Egyptian pantheon when the devil/serpent/Sammael possesses his high priest causing the high priest to abscond with the evidence to the contrary. Intriguingly the ancient pantheon of Egypt evolves into the Haitian Voodoo Religion. Epic human themes include reincarnation, guilt, redemption, salvation and love. This novel has it all. A roller coaster ride through history and the thing we call life.

"Jay Hartlove has fused several genres in a driving narrative sparkling with historical exotica. I recommend you buy this crazy novel." - John Shirley, Author of BLEAK HISTORY and Winner of the BRAM STOKER AWARD

I just finished it and I am really impressed with how well written and entertaining the book is. I highly recommend it to anyone who likes a good historical fiction type novel or just a good read in general. I am usually more into SciFi but I really got pulled into the book quickly and enjoyed it all the way through. I really liked the ending and it wrapped the story up nicely. I am looking forward to more novels from Mr Hartlove. At the price to entertainment ratio its hard not to justify buying it in my opinion.I have read books that cost me a lot more and entertained me a lot less. Very well done

Talk about coloring outside the genre lines! <b>The Chosen</b> by Jay Hartlove has probably got your favorite genre covered with a pinch of &ldquo;almost romance,&rdquo; suspense, mysticism, the paranormal , time travel, Voodoo, spirituality, and an ancient Egyptian rivalry between two powerful magicians, one who sided with Moses and the Exodus. Expect the unexpected and good luck trying to figure out who is really the good, the bad or the ugly. How does it all tie into the launching of a nuclear warhead, the mental stability of an import/export dealer, the ritualistic torture and killing of a modern day museum security man in search of information and the ancient god of lies and trickery? Are these monsters deities, demons or perhaps angels? If anyone comes out alive, they will be forever changed. For me, <b>The Chosen</b> started out intriguingly mild, but I KNEW there had to be more layers and with each detail, I was proven right as I was taken through time, realms and countries in this well-delivered adventure! Jay Hartlove can weave a tale that is difficult to put down as more mayhem is uncovered in this well researched, well delivered &ldquo;out-of-the box&rdquo; thriller! A review copy was provided by the author in exchange for my honest review, honestly, this is a keeper for sure!
