Rave reviews for the masterful adult debut from the New York Times best-selling author of the Divergent Series.

A hugely-imagined, twisty, turning tale that leads through the labyrinths of magic and war to the center of the heart.

Diana Gabaldon, author of Go Tell the Bees that I am Gone from the New York Times best-selling Outlander series

With Chosen Ones, Veronica Roth keeps you guessing: playing with perception, multiverse theory, and the struggles that go along with being ‘chosen’ to save the world…she’s created a universe that you never want to leave.

Amber Benson, author of The Witches of Echo Park

Chosen Ones by Veronica Roth is the cure for all those humdrum ‘one true savior’ narratives. This dark, complex novel rocked my heart and left me with a renewed sense that saving the world is a job that never ends. Roth’s version of magic is as flawed and fascinating as her characters, and her story keeps you guessing until the wild conclusion. You’ll never look at fantasy heroes the same way again.

Charlie Jane Anders, Hugo & Nebula Award-winning author of The City in the Middle of the Night

With Chosen Ones, Veronica Roth has pulled off a virtuoso performance, conjuring a stunning thriller/fantasy/sci-fi chimera like nothing I’ve read before, a story of ex-heroes struggling with the trauma of their past, what it means to have once saved the world, and the dark side of destiny.

Blake Crouch, New York Times best-selling author of Recursion

Roth somehow manages to make universe building look easy. She sets it all up—world, characters, premise—so smoothly that you hardly notice until you’re a hundred pages in and hurtling down the tracks. An insightful exploration of desire and ambition that also touches on broader societal topics, including celebrity, social media, trauma and recovery. A thought-provoking novel with ample emotion and a sense of playfulness with form. And one more thing: when the inevitable adaptation of Chosen Ones hits the screen someday, I just hope it captures Roth’s fascinating and original theory of magic.
