A review by christinereads1823
Chosen Ones by Veronica Roth

adventurous dark emotional mysterious fast-paced
  • Plot- or character-driven? A mix
  • Strong character development? It's complicated
  • Loveable characters? It's complicated
  • Diverse cast of characters? Yes
  • Flaws of characters a main focus? Yes


Thoroughly engrossing, full of twists and an interesting take on magic systems. Roth's flawed characters with sharp edges and unresolved trauma sing, exploring the complexities of being a hero after your adventure ends - and then what happens when you're asked to do it again.

I did guess the character-based plot twists (I felt they were pretty obvious) but not the worldbuilding-based ones.
