THE CHOOSING BY RACHELLE DEKKER
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 REVIEW-As an avid reader, I run into a lot of different genres. This one was new for me, a Dystopian novel. But even though it isn’t something I normally read, it quickly went on my favorites list.
Rachelle Dekker is the oldest daughter of well-known author, Ted Dekker. And her debut novel makes you sit up and take notice of her writing style from the beginning. The book opens with a big choice being made and you have no clue about what is going on, but the writing makes you want to know what will happen to Carrington and why this is occurring to her. As a Dystopian story the book is set in the future to 2055 and a lot of things are different. One world authority, religion and everyone follows their rules. Very different from present day but also makes you think about what might come to pass vs what we are looking at today. Again, an excellent book that kept my interest through to the end. Now to wait for the second installment in the Seer Series.
