Book Review: The Ritual – A College Romance with a Dark Twist

Shantel Tessier has done it again! The author of multiple bestselling novels brings us a new standalone romance, The Chosen One, that will leave you gasping for air.

The Chosen One is set in Barrington University, where secrets are the norm and the powerful Lords reign supreme. These Lords are a group of men who are dedicated to violence and reap its rewards in power. During their senior year, they choose one lucky individual to be their chosen one. That lucky (or not so lucky) person is none other than our protagonist, who is looking for a way to escape her planned out life.

At first, the chance to be FREE seems like a dream come true, but as our protagonist delves deeper into the twisted world of the Lords, she realizes that she has nowhere to run. The main problem? The person who had promised her a way out, Ryat Alexander Archer, had only been using her as a pawn to advance his own goals. Our protagonist finds herself trapped in a game that she had thought was a way to escape her predetermined fate.

The dark themes present in The Chosen One may be triggering to some readers. Shantel Tessier did add a warning on the inside of the book for anyone who wishes to avoid certain triggers. However, for those willing to indulge in a little darkness, The Chosen One is a wild ride that will leave you spellbound.

The storyline is full of twists and turns that will keep you guessing until the very end. The characters are complex and compelling, and you will find yourself rooting for some and hating others. The author has done an excellent job of creating a villain that you will love to hate. Ryat Alexander Archer is an over the top, jealous, and possessive hero who will leave you reeling with his twisted sense of love.

The writing style is engaging and witty, with an unapologetic tone that draws you into the narrative. The pacing is perfect, and the 626-page book never lags. The Chosen One is an Amazon Top 100 Bestseller for a reason, and Shantel Tessier proves once again why she is a USA Today and Wall Street Journal Bestselling author.

The Chosen One is a standout novel, and its dark themes and over the top hero make it an unforgettable read. This book is not for the faint of heart, but for those who love a little darkness in their romance, The Chosen One is a must-read.
