He showed her so much more.

And after Paul is captured by sinister agents, Persephone finds herself joining forces with an unlikely group of UFO hunters to rescue Paul and derail an alien plot before it’s too late.

Well written story

I really like this author. I just finished reading 'The Chosen' and wanted to read more by her. I wasn't disappointed.

She does a great job on character building and world Building.

In this book, the main character is a psychic who accidently stumbles upon a secret alien attack and has to save the world.

Others complained about her obtaining special abilities at just the right time. I think it fits just fine in this story. I believe the author will reveal more about that in her next few books.

So, why 4 stars? Unfortunately the book limits itself. I can't read this to my kids and I can't recommend it to anyone who doesn't want to be exposed to descriptive sexual content. It wasn't necessary. I'm reading along thinking, "This is a great book". Then all of the sudden, there's kissing and undressing. I have to skip several pages to keep from feeling ashamed.

I hope this author will consider writing a series without all the graphic sex.

I enjoyed the overall plot of the book, however, the author doesn't quite know when to quit. On my e-reader, this book was around 600 pages, but it easily could have been 250. The author breaks up conversations to insert the narrator's completely unimportant and uninteresting thoughts. Sometimes this went on for 3-4 paragraphs and by the time the conversation resumed, I had often forgotten what was even being discussed.

It took me nearly a week to finish this book because it was so dreadfully long-winded. Unless you are a gifted speed reader and can discern the useless fluff from the meat of the story, I don't recommend this book. It's actually quite sad because the plot is good. Perhaps if the author took another swing at it and edited out all the nonsense, it would be a nice, cozy mystery.
