Initially drawn to the cover of this book, and then the synopsis, I decided to give this book a read. I am so glad I did because I loved this novel.
I was provided a free digital copy of this novel through YA Bound Book Tours in exchange for an honest review.
Told from the perspectives of twin sisters, Valora and Grier, Sister of the Chosen One masterfully weaves an action story with personal struggles. As time passes, we see events unfold through the eyes of both sisters. Sometimes scenes slightly overlap, which was interesting, but I think it worked with the narrative.
The heart of this story is the sisters. Both characters are well-rounded and extremely relatable. Even with the fantastical elements, these are two teenagers who are looking for understanding. I felt for these characters and found myself relating to their feelings.
The people in this story have magical powers, to a degree, and are gearing up for a fight with the big bad. Although this has fantasy elements, I think that many readers would enjoy it. It was an exciting look into different abilities and a world filled with magic and monsters.
I did find some plot points predictable from very early on. However, since this wasn’t part of the central theme, I’m willing to overlook it.
Overall, I think this was very well put together. It kept my interest from the beginning and brought forth many emotions. I wish I had a book like this when I was a teen. I’m sure this is a standalone novel, which makes me sad because I would be very interested in reading more about these characters and their adventures.
