    2. They finally make it to the Shadow Lands and the trials for Chosen. The Shadow People apparently some long lost relatives of Shanti having the "old" blood. In this story, the quest company is split for a major part of the story and slows down a bit.The strength of the series for me are the characters. With characters of Shanti's company divided as she enters the trials, the story loses some of its magic. The chemistry becomes more diluted because it flows better as a whole group. The division th [...]

    3. I don't know. I liked it better than Hunted, but I still didn't love it as much as the first one, Chosen.This one has Shanti and her crew arriving to the Shadow Lands, where she must go through the trials to become the Chosen. I thought the trials were underwhelming. Not much happened besides her having to defend herself against wild animals and go through some "survival" type issues. I guess I was expecting something a little more epic. There was too much of this:And not enough of this:I mean, [...]

    4. 4 DAMN YOU (NON)TRIALS STARS!This was my least favourite book in the series so far. Hence the 4 star rating.Shanti was really stubborn here too. Emotionally stubborn. She's still as kickass as before.I feel like the trials were really lacking. I think the rest of the Westland buddies and Rohnan had been in the real danger than Shanti.Finally! Finally, the romance exists! But Shanti just had to dim its lights. I understand her reason though.I live for the ending of this book. *DIES*

    5. Sometimes the slang that Shanti uses distracts me from the story, for example at one point she uses the term chop-chop to hurry her cadets. "Chop chop" is a phrase rooted in Cantonese. It spread through Chinese workers at sea and was adopted by English seamen. "Chop chop" means "hurry, hurry" and suggests that something should be done now and without any delay. How does something like that show up in a fantasy novel, it happened a few times in the first two books as well, but didn't really distu [...]

    6. Every so often you discover a series that hooks you in completely and the Warrior Chronicles is one of those series for me. I devoured the first three books in less than a week (even though it's taken me a long time to get around to writing this final review!) and I've been waiting impatiently for the release of Invasion ever since I finished Shadow Lands. Well, I finally have a copy in my hands so I'm going to write a really quick review of this book so I can dive back in and catch up with Shan [...]

    7. Sorry guys, I can't write something about this AMAZING book, I have to make stickers and banners with SHANTI FOR PRESIDENT! SHANTI IS THE GREATEST! SHANTI CAN DO IT!Stuff like that.you know!And finally Cayan and Shanti joined their minds AND their bodies! Both work together to become THE CHOSEN and to lead the Shadow people to the fight against Xandre. They have to complete the trials to earn that title. In the meantime the island is swamped by the Grayguals, which are Xandre's army and Shanti a [...]

    10. I really want to like this series for the kick-ass heroine. But I don't and I think I like this instalment even less than the previous two.Firstly, even though the heroine, Shanti, has proven she's tougher and more deadly than all the other characters, there's still endless comments regarding her and other women along the lines of, "Oh I can't believe a woman did that! A woman!" and "Wow, I can't believe women aren't useless" and "Wow, women are good for things other than sex!" This has the effe [...]

    11. 3.75 ✭SL starts right where we left off in Hunted. They've made it to the Shadow Lands in one piece and Shanti starts her trial almost immediately. The rest of the crew goes to wait for her in the Shadow Land town where things get hairyfast. A few things didn't work for me here. Though we got some explanation, I didn't see how the Shadow people allowed so many of the enemy onto their island, they took a very long time to investigate the shenanigans going on during the trial and there weren't n [...]

    12. The book was good not great. Shanti is still an amazing character and so is this world. This book was non-stop action and seemed almost to have too much going on and it was hard to keep up. In this installment we finally see the lovin between Cayan and Shanti. Though a bit lackluster, I think more than that would've taken away from the story and the trials. What?!?! I know! I can't believe I said that, either. It's refreshing to have the woman in the relationship be the hesitant one. Most portra [...]

    13. Really enjoyed this satisfying read. Excellent continuance of the story. The "Shadow lands" trials were a little less than expected. (shrug)Good battles, the romance was furthered. No major cliffhanger, but a book 4 is coming.(Btw - loved the new female member of the honor guard!)Let's hope they use a cover model that actually resembles the character next time.Recommended!

    14. At last!The romance is progressing:)This series is a real gem, oh yes!!It is not a smut novella with fantasy background, shoo away if you just wanted that stuff.The slowburn is delicious, and is not a YA fantasy either!I don't want too much smut in my PNR books but I do want an adult relationship between my H and h and they have all here.A kickass heroine, strong powerful hero who crazy about heroine and supporting her in anyway he can, fabulous storyline and yes, blood and gore splash all over [...]

    15. Of all the books I've read, there are so very very few that hold up to what I WANT in a warrior story, but KF Breene hits the mark in this Warrior Chronicles Series. From the first 'Chosen' to this third 'Shadow Lands', she holds true to the world she's created and the fantasy that IS a warrior's life. Nothing is all pretty and fluff. This book, story, characters, and battles are rough, hard, and TOTALLY BADASS! DEFINITE RECOMMEND! the whole series!

    16. It's time for Shanti to go through the trials that will prove once and for all if she is the Chosen one, or cost her her life.While she is undergoing the trials, her allies face problems of their own, staving off attacks by the gathering forces of their enemies. War is fast approaching and both sides are waiting for the outcome of the trials that might mean their survival.Thankfully (view spoiler)[Shanti is not alone, and with Cayan's help, the two manage to overcome the trials and emerge as the [...]

    18. While I still love this series, this installment was a little of a let down. The grand build up for the challenges to face in the Shadowlands to determine the Chosen was not that big of a deal. There was still plenty of action and all the characters that I liked were present and accounted for. Great fantasy series with lots of action, with a touch of romance and humor. Well recommended.

    19. ^how I feel coming out of this bookFinally we get Shanti to the Shadow Lands to complete her test and prove if she is the Chosen one. this book follows in 2 parts - Shanti's perspective from within the trial, and Cayan's perspective on the island while he tries to protect their group while Shanti is indisposedSICALLY IT WAS AWESOME.I really liked reading both perspectives and FINALLY getting to see the inside of the trials.*Spoilers up and comingAlso near the end when Cayan risks everything to s [...]

    20. 2.5 stars.I wanted to like this book but couldn't. Shanti is kickass, to be sure, but I think this is part of the story's problem. Shanti is too kickass. She's nearly unstoppable in hand to hand combat and has mind power at legendary levels. And oh, yeah, she can use both at once no problem. And then add in in her hero who actually has unlimited power. As a team, they're some sort of godly duo. Okay awesome, except now YOU CAN'T HAVE ANY LEGITIMATE CONFLICT. DaCosta does stage conflict, but ever [...]

    21. This is the third book of Chosen , and i am seriously doubting that it can become better than this.This was one hell of the ride, i have serious problems with sleep, when i read K.F.B. books. This is sindrom of not being able to putt down the book.This book is action packed. From the moment Shanti stepses on the ship ,to take them to the Shadow Lands, Shanti, Cayan and all of their crew are fighting for their lives. The battle scenes are so realistic I was practically fidgeting and jumping up an [...]

    22. The story really comes together in this book, more so than the previous titles. I was surprised at a few revelations early on, but it made so much more sense the way it played out. Cayan and Shanti have come a long way together and their relationship finally takes a turn. I loved that there were a few new female characters (even though they had small parts). Something that has been bugging me since book 2 is that we never really meet Xandre at all! The whole premise of the series is Shanti runni [...]

    23. I really like this series !!!The characters were addictive from kick-ass Shanti to handsome Cayan to grumpy Sanders to all the boys.Shanti and her gang make this journey interestingly fun. This book did have a little romance (not much to satisfy but better) and that was a problem. Shanti and Cayan need more chemistry I mean in the 1st book their chemistry was strong but in this book where they mated I felt like their chemistry level just dropped to zero. Anyway I'm still rooting for these warrio [...]

    24. Summary: Quite enjoyed this, the premise is a bit week, the plot a bit predictable, the characters a little 1 dimensional, the romance side fortunately not too overdone. The story moves along and the writing is engaging, book 3 comes to a nice climax, the really nasty guy escapes so I guess there are more books in the series, but a good end point for me.Plotline: Predictable but reasonably well thought outPremise: Doesn't work for meWriting: Engaging but the characters never really brought to li [...]

    25. I got nearly half way through this book and just couldn't continue. The story's good, the plot is descent but it just went on and on, nothing really happening, I ended up skipping pages and pages at a time and nothing had happened. The first two in this series were pretty good but I just don't have the patience to continue. Disappointed. I really wanted to love this book, but just didn't work for me.

    26. A great readTruly an enjoyable escape from your daily grind this series has everything one could ask of a fantasy. History, adventure, battle action, sex, it fills all the requirements.

    27. I give it a reluctant 4 starsI can't argue that this book isn't good, it totally is, there was just some things that I was disappointed with or that I found unbelievable. A couple of those things being: The Shadow people are a very intelligent people who know just about everything that's going on on the island. It doesn't make sense that once they realized the Graygual were planning to go to war, why they wouldn't start turning away ships and denying them entrance? It sounds like an obvious and [...]

    28. So spoiler I guess but not really They have sex. Hot, magical (literally) sex. Then like a day later Cayan puts his hand on her hip and she says no. At first I was annoyed because I hate reading hot/cold romances if they can be called that. If it's not what you actually want, it is possible to use your brain the first time too. Or if it actually is what you want, let yourself want it. But it gets worse:"He could let her run again, as she always seemed to do, or he could match her violence, and f [...]

    29. More like 3.5 stars. The book is good, but not great. Again, no one can beat Shanti. She's fucking awesome. Strong, independent, funny, irrational. And stubborn. All the feelings are there, but she's afraid to love. I get it. That's fine. I'm glad she's indecisive even. Jumping into love and forgetting all about the war and the main goals, THAT'S what I'm so extremely glad didn't fucking happen. It happens all to often, sadly enough. Anyway, I digress. One of the themes in the books focuses on f [...]
