Publisher's Summary

Life is quiet for Alex Verus. Amazing. With a flat full of friends (and the occasional fish) and business booming, why not enjoy the humdrum here and now?

But of course that's too good to be true. In a sudden and cruel pincer movement of fate, Alex finds himself fighting a sinister and powerful gang as well as his own demons - for the same crime.

Held hostage by the choices of his past, Alex's future is now in jeopardy....

I am a burger

I didn't expect this story to end the Way it did. The moral dilemma Alex verus faces is very interesting.

Another great read

I have enjoyed this series so far but not comfortable with the Tobruk situation.
Did we have to have the level of torture towards Rachel?
Tried to be diplomatic with my words.

Almost finished it in one go! Riveting!

This is the best Alex Verus yet. Quite a few things that have been hinted at in previous books are coming getting explained. Splendid book!

Another super Alex Veras story.

I’ve really enjoyed all the books in this series and Chosen is no exception.
The story line and characters hold your attention. I would advise listening to the earlier books first as you will be aware of the back story, however Chosen does hold its own as a stand alone novel.
Alex and his friends and associates have umpteen battles and there are casualties. Life won’t be the same again for any of them.
Besides Alex himself, my favourite character is Arachni, a giant magical spider and dressmaker, who lives in her lair under Hampstead Heath. She is probably Alex’s best friend and confidante.
Chosen, is the tale of a struggle between good and evil, but with a magical twist......in fact, many twists, both expected and surprising.
I don’t like spoilers, so I’ll just say that good wins the battle, but not necessarily the war. The story ends with a cliffhanger, so I’ll just have to listen to the next book.
If you like magical fantasy, you’ll enjoy Chosen. It is not boring or predictable, and the author’s power of description is amazing. The narrator does a top class job too.
