: The Choosing (Seer series #1)

Title:  The Choosing (Seer series #1)
Author:  Rachelle Dekker
Pages:  448
Year:  2015
Publisher:  Tyndale
My rating is 5+ stars.
This is a story with punch that awakens the heart and soul of every reader!  Carrington is the female lead who believes she is unlovable, imperfect and worthless.  Of course, it doesn’t help that her mother has been having her recite the six rules that govern the community after a period called the Ruining.  In order to please God, people are forced to follow rules, live in what is basically a caste system and the worst is being separated forever from their family.
Remko is a city guard who Carrington recognizes early on as a man who has a tender heart and an unfulfilled need in his heart.  There is a lot going on in the story that will keep you up reading till the end; it is intense to the max!  What is portrayed is spiritual warfare that happens over each soul and how one must choose to be free in Him, loved by Him and cherished by Him.  The villain in the book readers will quickly spot from the opening of the tale.
I bought this book when it first came out, intending to read it as soon as I could.  When book two recently was released titled, The Calling, I had to delve into the constant action and high caliber intensity of book one that never lets up.  The story is powerful because it speaks powerful Biblical truths through various parts of the work of fiction.
When I looked in the back of book two, The Calling, I saw book three will be released in the fall of this year, I was ecstatic not to have to wait a whole year for the conclusion!  In the tale too I noticed just how important a family unit is and how it works best to the glory of God.  I enjoyed the name used to show us Jesus as our High Priest, who offered Himself to redeem us, to reconcile us and restore us.
So grab The Choosing and The Calling so you’re prepared for book three when it is released by Tyndale this year!  Open your heart and mind to the spiritual truths well woven within the novels!  See you again when I review The Calling as well as book three in the series!

This whole series is so worth reading! They excel at suspense and grabbing the heart of the reader, pulling them into the plethora of happenings in the book. The series has a total of four books that can be read as stand-alone stories though I found reading them in order helped enhance my understanding of the plot and characters.
The titles in order are: Convenient Lies, Twisted Lies followed by Generous Lies, which comes before this final novel I am sharing my thoughts on today.Robin weaves such a well-crafted plot that brings the reader into the story from the first page, and then keep turning the pages with all the twists and turns in the plot.I felt like I was right there observing what was happening around me even though I was reading the book.
Time flew by quickly and I was unaware of what was going on around me because I was lost in the pages!Right th…
