Amazing finish to a most superb trilogy. Kristen Day has found herself a fan for life!
I laughed, I cried, I bit my nails, I ignored my chores...and I don't regret a single minute!!
Finn and Stasia Forever. Literally. :)

I love this series! Chosen was a great, beautiful conclusion! I just love when I take a chance on a book and it quickly becomes a favorite I am so glad I found.

My favorite part of this story is the romance. I love Finn and Stasia. The romance is not overdone and is just wonderful. Finn is one of my forever book boyfriends. Here is one of my favorite lines from him:

"Essence becomes useless without love. Love turns the strongest of men into warriors. When a man has someone to fight for, he's capab

AHH!! What a great ending to a wonderful trilogy!! I was soo excited to read this after the major cliffhanger in the second book, and I was not disappointed!! I'm no great review writer, but let me just say that once again, Kristen Day has literally made me feel like I was watching this story unfold! I love how the characters (Stasia, Finn, and the "gang") have grown into the new roles they must take on in their life. And the excitement, wow!! I was honestly cheering Stasia on all through this b ...more

One of the perks of having a blog? Is that I have this chance of receiving ARC! And I so love it!!! So, I want to thank Ms. Kristen Day and Michelle Miller of Lovers of Paranormal for this copy. This really made my day! :)

It's been four months now since I read the second book, and though the second book got me sleepless on the first few days after I've read it, my memory can't keep up that long. So it took me awhile to figure out what's going on on the first part of this book. And what triggers

Where to begin?! This book was absolutely amazing. It gave an excellent ending to a very captivating series. Stasia has been through some much throughout the installment, and this novel just puts icing on the cake. Chosen will draw you in and hold your attention until it is completely read. I could not have asked for a better ending to this story. It gives you everything you ever wanted to read and more. If only the supernatural was real, I might be a tri-goddess myself with a handsome Finn by m ...more

Rating 5 out of 5 Fairies

Chosen, by Kristen Day, reaches a pretty epic conclusion (although I have heard there'll be a fourth book! Yay!). The author takes her fabulous main character, Stasia, on a significant journey filled with adventure and action. Along her epic journey, we see her character and power develop and grow. Stasia is a formidable character. A female lead who is aspirational.

Tied with the fast paced action, the author successfully creates beautiful tender moments betw

Brilliant... Absolutely brilliant!

Kristen Day is amazing - this series has truly become one of my FAVOURITES! I'm telling EVERYONE I know about it.

Chosen is the third and final instalment in Kristen Day's Daughters of the Sea series. The book picks up right where we left Stasia, Finn and their friends in Forsaken

The growth of Stasia throughout the series is so interesting and captivating and in Chosen, Kristen Day does not disappoint! The romance between her and Finn is spellbinding! The evil Na

i was given this book in exchange for an honest review by the author and Lovers of Paranormal.

Another 5 star book!! If I have to be critical this book is probably not quite as good as the first two but I think that is due to there being less discovery of Stasia and Finn's world. We know so much more now.

On the subject of Finn.....I WANT A FINN!! Beautifully written (and described) who wouldn't want one of their own. Have the tissues handy too when Finn really reveals his romantic side. There are

What can I say about Chosen?

Hmmmm, it's a wonderful end to a fresh series written by Kristen Day called Daughter of the Sea.

Book one - was full of amazing revelations, sexiness and secrets
Book two - turned darker and brought us to hell and back
Book three- a fantastic conclusion to some of the story lines we have been following BUT wait....there's more??

- Yes there is bc guess what! Kristen just announced she is going to make this a series and write books 4 & 5!!

With that in mind I will keep

I have no idea what to say about this final installment, except these three words: OH. MY. WORD. After all of the twists and turns throughout the series, and the cliffhanger endings of the first two books, the ending could not have been more perfect. Everything that Stasia had to deal with throughout her journey was resolved in the best way imaginable. Sadly, she did still have to deal with a tragic loss, on top of the losses she had already experienced. In the end, he became stronger than even ...more

I adored the first two books in Kristen Day's Daughters of the Sea trilogy (Forsaken and Awaken) and was waiting ever so impatiently for Chosen to be released. Finally, the end of Stasia's journey and the confrontation we've waited for is here! Although Chosen wasn't my favorite in the series, it was still a great finale to a wonderful trilogy.

Chosen begins right where Awaken left off, easily guiding readers back into the anxiety-ridden wo

Just want to make a quick comment on how much I love the new covers for this and the first two books in this trilogy! They look AMAZING! Ok, now that that's off my chest, to the review. I've been in literal love with these characters since the very first book, Forsaken. Stasia is an amazing MC who has a lot of heart and personality, which makes it very easy to fall into her world and not only believe it truly exists, bu

This book was difficult for me to love as it takes place where the second one leaves off, and it wasn't the writing or the storyline that made it hard for me to love it was something else, which I can't really say as it would be a spoiler and I know some people are stifflers about those. BUT I can say that we FINALLY get some chapters in Finn's point of view YAY!!! I was excited too!! What I love most about Finn is the fact he will defend his woman even when she's not around, "she possesses ever ...more
What a bittersweet farewell to a wonderful series!!! As always, Kristen Day gives us an action packed, swoon worthy, and captivating novel. I'll miss every character in this series even the most evil ones. I swear, there were many times when I wanted to physically strangle Nadia. But that's how you know how good a book is...when you really really react to the characters. The love story was breathtaking (Guys should take notes from Finn). The vivid imagery of each setting was so amazing that I fe ...more

Chosen is the perfect book to end the trilogy with!!! Not only were there unexpected twists in the story, as well as lots of action, suspense, and romance. The story has such wonderfully crafted characters and such an original plot that made these books a true joy to read! I loved the mythology element that Kristen introduced in these books. I was immediately drawn into the story and didn't want to put it down once I started reading. I highly recommend reading the Daughters of the Sea

I received this book in exchange for an honest review Lovers of Paranormal.

This book was a lot better the the 2nd one. It went and touched on things that made the characters more human and less magical. Staisa has to meet up with her fellow goddesses and learn how to control her powers to claim her right as leader. While in the shadows Keto and Nadia are plotting to take her down a notch. This book had many thrilling parts which I love. I am looking forward to the future books of this series.

I am so full of emotions right now. I have fallen in love with The Daughter of the Sea Series! Chosen is probably my favorite of the series.

I thoroughly enjoy watching Stasha and Finn's relationship blossom even as they continually have to endure pain and suffering from the evil Nadia. I want to scratch her eyes out and choke her with sea weed. Pure evil is all she is about, but she isn't the only one. I am still reeling from the emotional ups, downs and surprises Kristen has so expertly placed

I think I have to say this is my favorite book in the series so far. It had me crying with tears of sadness and joy. It was action packed and very colorful! Finn makes me wish I was Stasia. He is so sweet and romantic! I cannot wait to read Hearken. This is my all time favorite series, by my all time favorite author. I just love the way she writes, and surprises us at every turn of a new page.

Wow. I am in complete and utter awe. I've had book 1 and book 2 of this series sitting in my Kindle library for what seems like ages now, but with all of my busy work and reviews that I've been doing as of late I never got around to reading them. It took an invitation to review any book of the series for me to finally open the books take the time and read them. As you can guess since I already owned book 1 & 2, I picked book 3 'Chosen'.

You've outdone yourself, Ms. Day.

At first, I kind of couldn't get into the whole story. And even though I know that the other two books were great, I kept thinking this one was going to let me down. well, it didn't.

I was expecting something dark and depressing (fitting, with the whole underworld theme and all) and I just felt kind of... bleh.
But, as always, it surprised me how well this book was writting. I know I've said this before in an earlier review, but you have this knack of creating this

Kristen Day is quickly becoming one of my favorite authors. She just crafts so fun and engrossing tales that you can't help but to fall in love with them. She once again has done it again in this book. I was so happy to get around to reading this book as I really love this series. It has one of my favorite heroines in it being Stasia. Stasia is the kind of girl you would be able to relate to as she is smart,strong, fiercely loyal and protective of her friends and oh yeah she is a Goddess in tra ...more
