What would you do if, on the day of your birth, you were deemed one of the most valuable people in the world?
What would you do if, on the day of your birth, you were deemed one of the most valuable people in the world? What would you do if everyone was relying on you to save your kingdom, but no one knew how you were supposed to do it? This is Alexos’ fate, and there is no escaping it.
The day Alexos is born, he is proven to be the hero of the great goddess Athene, the boy who will deliver the entire kingdom from ruin. But a boy can only take so much. After several losses and with so much pressure on him, Alexos is all but broken. How can he save his kingdom if he can barely save himself?
With themes of sacrifice and courage, The Chosen Prince is a gripping book that drives you to continue reading until you are done. The novel is written in a way that flows and makes it easy to read. Even though it is written in a way that makes it seem mature, the reading is unchallenging, making it ideal for a larger group of people.
A very large part of this book is about gods, so people who read and enjoyed Rick Riordan’s Percy Jackson and Heroes of Olympus series’ will enjoy this book. However, the book is in many ways different than the Rick Riordan books, so it is very much its own story.
This book would probably be best for kids sixth grade and older, not because of the reading level, but because of the serious tone of the novel. Kids who like lighthearted, funny books probably would not get as much enjoyment out of this book.
Courage. Hardship. Sacrifice. War. It’s all there, in The Chosen Prince. If that sounds interesting to you, then go grab this book!
