Veronica Roth, author of the famed Divergent triology, is ramping up to release her latest novel, an adult adventure story entitled Chosen Ones.
In Chosen Ones, four teenage superheroes reunite after they’ve vanquished their enemy almost ten years ago. The main characters are battling trauma and still trying to adjust to the world around them when the reader meets them.
While marketed as a novel for adults, Chosen Ones has all the elements of a YA narrative with a bit more edge and darkness. The premise of the book takes a little bit of Harry Potter while the form borrows some of The Handmaid’s Tale and mixes the two together for something utterly other.
Roth engages readers with her quick-paced writing and a new almost multimedia style in Chosen Ones. While the book is geared towards adults, elements of Roth’s YA style definitely sneak through often. If you are a fan of Roth or YA books in general, then this is the book for you. As for diehard fans of Roth, the book holds up to her previous series in many ways and will likely not disappoint.
Slated for released from Houghton Mifflin Harcourt on April 7 2020, you can preorder a copy of Chosen Onesfrom your local independent bookstore.
