Review of the Choosing by Rachelle Dekker
“Not to be Chosen would yield a cruel fate of my own making.”
Like all citizens since the Ruining, Carrington Hale knows the importance of this day. But she never expected the moment she’d spent a lifetime preparing for—her Choosing ceremony—would end in disaster. Ripped from her family, she’ll spend her days serving as a Lint, the lowest level of society. She knows it’s her duty to follow the true way of the Authority.
But as Carrington begins this nightmare, rumors of rebellion rattle her beliefs. The whispers contradict everything she’s been told; yet they resonate deep within.
Then Carrington is offered an unprecedented chance at the life she’s always dreamed of, but she can’t shake the feeling that it may be an illusion. With a killer targeting Lints and corruption threatening the highest levels of the Authority, Carrington must uncover the truth before it destroys her.
Such a great inspirational and meaningful story. It's filled with little truths that the people have forgotten over time as we tend to do ourselves. It's a good reminder of who we really are in Christ! I love how she weaved some of the elements from her dad's(Ted Dekker) Circle Series. I was hooked from the very beginning and hung on til the very end! Can't wait to start Book 2 The Calling. I rarely listen to audiobooks but this one kept my attention. I totally recommend this book!
