Hello friends! Today I have my book review of
Chosen, by Jada Fisher.
Chosen is the first book in The Brindle Dragon series.
Trigger Warnings: Bullying
Eist was born to be a dragon rider, she just knows it. When fate conspires to take her parents and leave her orphaned and injured, her future appears bleak. Unwilling to back down, she must overcome a system stacked against her. Even if she passes all the tests, there’s no guarantee she will ever fly on a dragon. Can she beat the odds and find her destiny or will she be stranded on the ground?
Chosen is the first book in the Brindle Dragon series which follows the story of a young girl and her most unusual dragon as they set out to defeat an evil they don’t even know exists.
Chosen is the first book in The Brindled Dragon series. Eist, the main character, is a teenager who has a fierce love of dragons. We see Eist’s enthusiasm for dragons throughout the book. Frankly, Eist’s love for dragons is very endearing.
There wasn’t much that I expected to happen within Chosen. However, what did end up happening made me very happy.
Admittedly there were minor things that were predictable but I still genuinely enjoyed the book.
In Chosen there’s only one point of view, and we read from Eist. At first Eist is an 11-year-old girl who has a great ambition of being a dragon rider.
Within the first few chapters of this book, the story takes on a new outlook of Eist’s life. We read from Eist when she’s at the age of 11, and then again at the age of 15. It was actuallu pretty great reading from Eist when she was 11 years old versus her again at 15-years-old. We know from reading early on in the book that Eist has been wanting to be a dragon rider for a loooong time. Seeing Eist at the age of 15 still wanting to be a dragon rider was actually pretty cool to read.
Another thing that I enjoyed about Chosen is that the plot of the story moves fast, never letting the story linger on something for too long. Which made the story flow nicely. Also, there’s no romance in this book at all. Which was nice because the story focused more on Eist and her challenges throughout the novel.
Eist is also hard of hearing. Which means that she had different challenges than others, but she doesn’t let that stop her.
Ends with just enough intrigue about Eist’s dragon to make me want to read the second book immediately.
One thing that I liked about Chosen was that the beginning of the book was told in eleven year old Eist’s point of view where we see Eist’s enthusiasm for dragons.
Overall, I give Chosen, 3 stars.
