When the world was young, twins were born. One brought light to a dark world; the other, darkness and danger. They gathered others around them, men and women destined to use their powerful gifts for good or evil. Today their descendants walk the earth as the Chosen, and the ultimate battle is about to begin.

My take:

This is pure Dodd -hot, fast, and impossible to put down. Part of the Chosen series (#1), Storm of Visions revolves around Jacqueline and Caleb, two characters I fell in love with from the first chapter.

Jacqueline is a Chosen one, but wants no part of her gift and is working in a winery, trying to live a normal life - impossible when your mother is Zusane, the worlds most renowned psychic. Enter Caleb, Zusane's top bodyguard and major thorn in Jacqueline's side (due to the love her and leave her he pulled) who hopes to bully Jacqueline into accepting her Chosen destiny.

Jacqueline soon finds herself swept up, and tricked into the Chosen life, and fireworks quickly follow.

Dodd does an amazing job of detailing her characters, flaws and virtues, weaving a richly painted story that had me devouring book #2 (Storm of Shadows) the same night as I read this one :)

5 out of 5 stars.
