there isn’t time for - A Chosen Life by K.A. Parkinson

"Excellent read for adults and teenagers alike - fun read
I love this book! I actually read this at first as a pre-read for my 13 year old daughter. She loves this type of story but sometimes I am worried about content. I shouldn't have worried. I actually got sucked into the story very quickly and really enjoyed it. My daughter read it after me and enjoyed it too. The characters are developed well and you grow to like them all individually[...]" Amazon Customer

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. 

"This book pulls you into a whole different world
Great book that keeps you on your toes the whole time. I can't wait to read the next one." - Amazon, Taylyn

"Loved this book. You're hooked from the beginning
I loved this book. I couldn't put it down. I know this is one I'll enjoy reading over and over again. Tolen and Macy are two young teens of totally different backgrounds; one raised to fight the dark (evil) the other raised to be afraid of the gifts he begins to see in himself and not knowing why. This book follows their journey of self discovery." - Amazon, Janice
