Blurb: Grayson “Gray” Jones has spent his entire adult life trying not to be seen, not to be noticed, and simply existing day to day. Trying to ignore the fact that he can’t remember anything about his life prior to turning fifteen. All he knows is survival. The day before his thirtieth birthday, Gray wakes up to find his brown eyes unexpectedly a vivid blue—and tiny flashes of memory start to return. He grew up in a now-abandoned Pennsylvania town called Chosenone, and that town is calling him home.
Ravaged by an underground fire, no one lives in Chosenone anymore, and during Gray’s explorations of the old buildings, he’s shocked to run into his childhood friend Ian. He and Ian shared everything growing up, even their birthdays. But while Gray’s life post-Chosenone was one of inexplicable hell, Ian grew up to become a decorated police officer. And Gray hates cops. But some force drew them home to finish a ritual that began fifteen years ago, and this time, Gray wants to finish it once and for all—even if it costs him his own life in the end.
Review: Another intense and interesting addition to an already amazing series. Gray is drawn back to Chosenone after being gone for so long. Upon arrival flashbacks begin to happen as snippets of that time so long ago come back with a vengeance. Ian the only man Gray has ever loved is also drawn back to the ravaged town and what they uncover will test the both of them.
I loved this story. The fact that this place actually exist is a plus. The accounts of the fire burning under the town is true and added an awe inspiring feel to the story. The paranormal aspect was mind blowing in it’s intensity not to mention the reason for it happening to begin with.
I loved this story as well as the first two in the series. I am hoping there will be more or some like it in the future.
Fantastic read and highly recommended.
