    Set in Australia, The Chosen Rise of the Darkness is a story that can be told anywhere, in any country, on any planet, but it is a story that we are all familiar with one of the war between good and evil, in a battle of power, might and magic, and the inevitable question of who will triumph In the small town of Winmont, the Ancient Legion has been awoken and will stop at nothing in its effort to destroy everything But in the balance of life and the world, there must be a good to fight the e Set in Australia, The Chosen Rise of the Darkness is a story that can be told anywhere, in any country, on any planet, but it is a story that we are all familiar with one of the war between good and evil, in a battle of power, might and magic, and the inevitable question of who will triumph In the small town of Winmont, the Ancient Legion has been awoken and will stop at nothing in its effort to destroy everything But in the balance of life and the world, there must be a good to fight the evil Alex Manning is The One though he of course doesn t know this at first but in a world where the supernatural is an everyday existence that, if not respected, can take you life within a breath, he is the only one to stop this evil In this world knowledge is power knowledge of the ways of the paranormal and how to fight them The question is whether the young Alex Manning will be up to the task of stopping the Dark Forces Milson s style is a little unusual with head jumping and throwing the reader full into the story, providing little history or back story, but this kind of works for the story being told And while terms like Dark Ones, The One, and The Elders are clich for a horror novel, Milson nevertheless has his own story to tell set in a world that is terrifying and threatening, where you just want to make sure you stay on the side of good, as those who are evil and twisted are beings you don t ever want to meet.Forreviews, check out the BookBanter site

    My god, I rarely come across a book that I can t bare to continue reading This one is unfortunately one of them I don t know what they give out awards for in other countries but this book, right up until I stopped reading at page 52, felt like I was stuck in the worst bumper to bumper traffic on rt 4 trying to cross over to the GWB on a Saturday night There was so much stop and go in the grammar and structure of this book I thought I was going to get whiplash In general I m not a fan of the My god, I rarely come across a book that I can t bare to continue reading This one is unfortunately one of them I don t know what they give out awards for in other countries but this book, right up until I stopped reading at page 52, felt like I was stuck in the worst bumper to bumper traffic on rt 4 trying to cross over to the GWB on a Saturday night There was so much stop and go in the grammar and structure of this book I thought I was going to get whiplash In general I m not a fan of the all knowing third person perspective, but there have been books I ve read that still give you a personal attachment to the characters This doesn t even come close I felt no feelings toward anything in this book Oh there was a massacre Great His descriptions where bland, like I was eating fiber one cereal The dialog was atrocious It was like reading something written by a kid in high school Did anyone even edit this thing I should have known by the presentation of the book itself Ugly outside, ugly inside The euphemism, cant judge a book by it s cover does not apply to this one You most certainly can Unless you want a tension headache from picking this up, I suggest whole heartedly you run in the other direction
