Summary from Goodreads:

When Macy was chosen to join an elite group of children responsible for protecting ignorant mankind from the monsters of the Dark, she understood there isn’t time for speed bumps, and the arrival of the Ninth Chosen ten years late is one big bump. The Ninth is to one day lead all the Chosen in a final battle between Light and Dark forces, but the legendary warrior turns out to be Tolen Parks, a clueless and reclusive seventeen year-old whom Macy fears will not be their captain but instead their downfall. In an action-packed entertainer, Tolen and Macy are swept down a dangerous path that tests everything that Macy is, and brings out everything that Tolen can be, as they discover the power of choice, true friendship, and the incredible influence a single person can have on the world.

REVIEW BY: Arianna, age 13 years, 3 months


At first I was a little confused, but as the book progressed, I began to understand more. 

My favorite character is Mary because she is brave, smart, but a little sensitive and a doubtful. I love the moment when Tolen and Macy realize the impact they have on the world. 

I got drawn into the story and really enjoyed reading it. 

The characters really develop as the story goes on and I love how unique the author made them. You can tell how much thought the author put into this book. I can't wait for the next book! 

I love the fantasy aspect and the Light and Dark groups that are present. 

There are no bad words so even younger readers could enjoy this book! 

I recommend this book to those that like suspense, adventure, friendship and the triumph of good. 

I give this book 4 out of 5 stars and recommend it for ages 13 and up.
