Product Description

Product Description

Some say we’re special, and that’s why we’re kept in seclusion. Beyond those walls evil lurks and innocent prey would be lost in minutes. Gone. Destroyed. Forgotten.
Others say the opposite: we’re locked away because there’s something wrong with us. If we roamed the outside world, we might taint the beautiful ones. A species so pure, that to merely be in their presence is a gift.

As for my beliefs…I’m not sure.

But I do know one thing: neither of those reasons explains why it is that they come for us only after we’ve passed the age of sixteen. Whether we want to go or not, we’re taken through those iron gates. Escorted away from the only home we’ve ever known, escorted to our destiny—whatever that destiny may be—never to be seen again.

The Beautiful Ones is a prequel intended to introduce Lori's newest Young Adult series. At around 21,000 words, this is a short story. This Young Adult Romance contains kissing, cursing and some violence. It is best for ages 14 and up.

4.0 out of 5 stars Beautifully written and original 9 May 2014

When I came across this book I was slightly apprehensive as I don't usually go for this genre. However after reading the first page I found myself hooked - just over an hour later and I am eagerly anticipating the release of the next book in this series.

Extremely well written, original and appealing to all (I'm 19 and even my mother has enjoyed reading it ). I think that the writing is mature yet has a playful aspect and the author knows how to keep you hooked.

I highly recommend this book

4.0 out of 5 stars A well written pre-quel... interesting! 27 April 2014

This is a short introduction to "The Chosen Ones", which will apparently be released sometime soon... I got it for FREE, drawn to it by the beautiful cover.

Basically, the story is set in a dystopian society where humans are kept as bait in compounds for bloodthirsty vampires! I enjoyed reading it and already like the main character, Jane, and her sultry saviour (Why do I always think of Angel when a good vamp comes along?).

A great taster for this set of books, which only took about an hour to read...

5.0 out of 5 stars Amazing!! 27 April 2014
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
What an amazing prequel to this series. I was so engrossed in this story and I can't wait to see what happens in the next books. The characters and story was well-rounded and beautifully developed which is difficult to do in short stories. I really felt like the characters were so real, and I loved seeing the intriguing connection between Jane and one of the 'beautiful ones' Thanatos and would love to see this progress in future books in the series. 5 Stars!

5.0 out of 5 stars Left me wanting more ... 23 July 2014

... in a good way.

this short introduction is a quick read that sets the scene for what is hopefully to follow soon.

what starts out as a seemingly oppressive compound quickly reveals itself to be the safest place to be. great characters that you can attach to and other well written characters whose loss is bearable.

well written contrast between compound life and the riches and comforts of the beautiful ones, one fulfilling,seemingly, dreams and desires, the other offering a mundane familiarity, routine and safety.

looking forward to The Chosen Ones

5.0 out of 5 stars Very Promising! 18 Jun 2014
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
Dystopian/vampire theme! Quite an unusal combination but that's what makes it interesting. Has the potential to be a dark story but add in hot rebal vampire and a lead character with the potential to be kick ass means i'm looking forward to the series!

A good first book in the series in which Jane is thrust into a world outside of her encampment only to find she and her friends have been lied to the whole time. Gripping till the end!
