At midnight, the cover for The Chosen Ones (Book 1 in the Lost Souls Trilogy) was posted on over 150 Young Adult blogs.
My family and I decided to cut back on Christmas this year. We did this for a variety of reasons: my sister and I are nearing our 30s, we are preparing for the arrival of my sister’s son, there’s a Bears game on that day… Needless to say, I was struggling to find the warmth the Christmas season brings. Waking up to all the love and support shown by friends, family, and the Young Adult community this morning really lifted my heart.
Please check back this weekend, where I will show the LOVE to some of the amazing YA blogs out there who helped make this reveal so amazing.
So without further ado:
What if you were mankind’s last chance at survival?
Sixteen-year-old Tess lives in a compound in what was once the Western United States, now decimated after a devastating fourth World War. But long before that, life as we knew it had been irrevocably changed, as women mysteriously lost the ability to bring forth life. Faced with the extinction of the human race, the government began the Council of Creators, meant to search out alternative methods of creating life. The resulting artificial human beings, or Chosen Ones, were extraordinarily beautiful, unbelievably strong, and unabashedly deadly.
Life is bleak, but uncomplicated for Tess as she follows the rigid rules of her dystopian society, until the day she begins work at Templeton, the training facility for newly created Chosen Ones. There, she meets James, a Chosen One whose odd love of music and reading rivals only her own. The attraction between the two is immediate in its intensity—and overwhelming in its danger.
But there is more to the goings-on at Templeton than Tess ever knew, and as the veil is lifted from her eyes, she uncovers a dark underground movement bent not on taking down the Chosen Ones, but the Council itself. Will Tess be able to stand up to those who would oppress her, even if it means giving up the only happiness in her life?
