122) Chosen by Jeanne C. Stein

The Blurb -

It's been almost a year since bounty hunter Anna Strong became a vampire, but as she's about to discover, her greatest powers have yet to be unleashed...

Though Anna has become accustomed to the fact that she’s now a vampire, she still enjoys the illusion of being human. So when she suddenly notices that her primitive urges are getting harder to control, she’s worried. Then, she’s attacked, narrowly escaping with her life. The only person with enough motive to want her dead is her old foe—Warren Williams. But another more dangerous enemy lies in wait.

What Anna doesn’t know is that she’s far too valuable to kill. For she’s been chosen to shape the destiny of the vampire race—and all of mankind…

My Review -

Anna Strong is one of my favourite vampires and I have been following her story since she was turned. In the series nearly a year has passed but in real life it has been about four. Chosen is the sixth book in the series and the time has finally come to see what really happens to Anna when her first year as a vampire comes to an end. Was it worth the wait? Oh yeah it was!

I don't want to give away the plot but this story does have quite a few moments of surprise. At least one character who has been a major player in events so far gets killed off. I didn't see that coming and neither did Anna. Another character who I and Anna thought we could trust turns out to be something of a let down. I like how Anna deals with this problem. For every character that leaves there has to be some more to take their place and there are some minor characters who suddenly have a bigger role to play in things.

Chosen has quite a few interesting events take place that had me reading faster. It also had some changes that kept me engrossed and eager for more. The great writing style and general plot was, as always, spectacular and I am only sad that the book came to an end and I now have to wait for more. Anna is a special character and the kind of vampire I would like to be.

Fans of this series will be delighted to come across this new release in any way, shape or form. This is a series that I personally must buy and it is also one that I keep in my permanent collection. For anyone who hasn't yet had the pleasure of meeting Anna, then I highly recommend you get to know her. She is a kick ass vampire who doesn't mess around.

Well, heck, now I have to read this one sooner after this review! I am the same, I get each book in the series as soon as it comes out.
