My Review

First off, I fell in love with the cover for Chosen. How fantastically chilling. I had high hopes the book would be as creepy as the cover. Got my wish.

Fans of urban legends and horror that gives you goose bumps and makes you jump at those little noises from somewhere out of sight will love this one.

Piper had a rough childhood with an abusive father. After his unusual death she goes to live with her grandfather. She grows up and moves away, becomes a reporter, has a loving fiance and a happy life. Then a mysterious man starts following her and strange events happen. Something dark stalks her, terrifying her at every turn.

When she receives word that her grandfather passed away, she heads back home to Alabama to bury him. There’s a mix up about the funeral and she travels to Hell, the town, not the place down below. But Hell feels like hell. As horrific things continue to escalate, she fears for her life. Secrets are revealed about her family, and the towns denizens won’t let her leave.

This one starts out creepy and never stops. And it reads very visually. I drew from movies like Silent Hill, The Grudge and The Ring to see many of the scenes. As if the author hadn’t already done it, I succeeded in scaring myself silly.

This is my first book by R.S. Broadhead but it wont be my last. Looking for something to scare you and get you in the mood for Halloween? Grab this one. It’ll do the job and then some.

Synopsis

Black eyes. No emotion. No sympathy. Only emptiness.

Piper McAdams’s life was normal. Career? Check. Boyfriend? Check. Friends? Check. One unsettling run in with a homeless man turns everything from normal to terrifying. She begins seeing…things.

Things she can’t seem to explain or make any sense.

As if things aren’t already getting out of hand, Piper receives news that the only family member she has is dead. She thinks maybe a trip across the country to her hometown will get her away from all the strange events happening.

After a late night accident, Piper isn’t in her hometown burying her loved one. She’s in a town called Hell. All she wants to do is leave, but the people seem to be holding her there for some reason.

A reason she feels threatens her life. Around every corner things become darker and scarier.

Can she escape what is coming for her?
