Book Review: The Choosing by Rachelle Dekker


The Choosing

Synopsis (via Goodreads)

“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. 


The Choosing Book Review

I was so excited to find a dystopian novel in the Christian fiction genre. Once I started The Choosing I was drawn in by Carrington and her fate after not being chosen. This dystopian novel is entertaining while drawing inspiration from Christianity.  Carrington has been made to feel worthless by societies misguided beliefs but soon realizes that ones worth is not defined by man. Thought his book did deal with dark subjects it was also full of hope and light. Once I picked it up I had to know the path Carrington would take and if she discover her true worth.  I am very excited for the release of the second Seer Novel coming sprig 2016! The Choosing is available to buy now.

Who Would I Recommend this Book to? 

This book would be a must read for anyone who loves dystopian novels and Christian fiction. There is a bit of a love story in the book, which I always like but that is a personal preference.

4 of 5
