Introducing an epic new trilogy from Taran Matharu, author of the New York Times–bestselling Summoner series.
Throughout history, people have vanished with no explanation. A group of teenagers are about to discover why.
Cade is settling into a new boarding school, contemplating his future, when he finds himself transported to another realm. He soon discovers their new world is populated with lost remnants from the past: prehistoric creatures, ancient relics, and stranger still — people. Overwhelmed by his new surroundings, Cade has little time to adjust, for soon he and his fellow classmates are forced to become contenders in a brutal game, controlled by mysterious overlords.
But who are these beings and why did they choose these teens? Cade must prepare for battle . . . because hiding is not an option.

The Chosen was an action-packed fantasy filled with suspense! I loved the world building! I thought this was a very unique read! Did I mention dinosaurs? I really enjoyed this book and I highly recommend it! I can’t wait to read book 2!
This had been planned. The water, certainly. Maybe even the disk around the corpse’s neck. It was like a test…a puzzle. And they were the guinea pigs.
Perhaps this was what all dreams felt like until you woke up from them.
It can’t be a dream. Maybe a nightmare.
To be alone, in the midst of all this strangeness. Unthinkable.
