402252The Choosing
By Rachelle Dekker / Tyndale House

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—to 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. Though the whispers contradict everything she’s been told, they resonate deep within.
Then Carrington is offered an unprecedented chance at the life she’s always dreamed of, yet she can’t shake the feeling that it may be an illusion. With a killer targeting Lints and corruption threatening the highest levels of the Authority, Carrington must uncover the truth before it destroys her.

My husband and I both enjoy reading Ted Dekker’s books so when I saw that his daughter Rachelle is coming out with her very first debut book I was very excited. I was so curious as to what kind of stories she would write.  In all fairness I wasn’t even thinking of comparing her with her father who is a master story teller in his own right but after reading this novel I have to say that the apple did not fall far from the tree. She has the gift of story telling just as her father does.

I was so excited about this book and I could not put it down. You can ask my hubby. I didn’t even want to go to work because I wanted to finish it so badly.  The story captured me from the get go. Carrington’s thoughts and feelings captures your heart. You can understand exactly where she was coming from and yet you want to help encourage her to see things differently.  I love that this is the beginning of a series because I can’t wait to follow this character’s development.

The story is set in the future and follows Carrington and Remko. You watch as everything they thought they could trust and believe in is challenged and how that changes each of them.

I give this book 5 stars and I can not wait until next spring when book 2 of the Seer’s series comes out.
