Petra Landonabout this book: Magicks have lived incognito amidst humans since the beginning of time. They call themselves the Chosen – the ones plucked from the human population to be bestowed with the gift of magic. Plagued by factionalism, they resist all efforts to unify them. Until a mysterious plot from the past, tied to an old prophecy, threatens to unleash terror on them all.
Tasia Armstrong is a special Chosen, condemned to walk in the shadows to keep her distance from her kind. Until a fateful decision one night forces her into the light and a tenuous alliance with the local Shape-shifter Pack in San Francisco. Thrust unceremoniously amidst the violent and volatile Shifters, Tasia must fight to protect her secrets while grappling with the dangerous and enigmatic Alpha Protector who keeps his fractious Pack in line with a ruthless hand on the reins. When the Pack is tasked with investigating the past, Tasia's unique talents prove essential to cracking the riddle. As factions of Wizards, Shape-shifters, Vampires and Ancients vie for power and influence over the Chosen, Tasia must decide who to trust with the deadly secrets she guards.
This tale of fantasy has action, adventure, an unfolding mystery and a sprinkling of romance. The story is told through the eyes of Tasia, a young girl whose circumstances have forced her to straddle the two worlds of Chosen and human. There are two main threads interwoven into the tale. Tasia's journey from a life on the fringes of Chosen society to a crucial role in an investigation that might well decide the future of all Chosen, the danger to her compounded by her unique heritage and her inexperience with the cut-throat politicking and intrigue of the Chosen world. And the story of the Chosen, who find themselves facing an unprecedented threat from one of their own, a powerful and ruthless Wizard who will let nothing stand in the way of her ambitions.
Will the threat succeed in uniting the Chosen or drive them even further apart? Can the Chosen overcome centuries of distrust and isolation to come together and will Tasia's part in the investigation lay bare her own past, forcing the Chosen to confront centuries-old norms and traditions that they have always taken for granted.
