The Beautiful Ones

The Beautiful Ones written by Lori Brighton

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. 

My Thoughts:
First of all, I found this novella on my Nook for free! Secondly,I know a lot of people when they start to read this are probably like "here we go again another dystopian themed series." and while that is true of this book, it doesn't make it any less intriguing. This prequel is only 66 pages, but I could not stop reading it! I devoured it and I definitely want more! I want to know what happens to Jane and the people who live in the ruins of a destroyed city, who find her. Who is Thanatos and why is he different from the other "Beautiful Ones"? And also why have the "Beautiful Ones" reverted back to an age of castles and motes? This novella leaves me with more questions than answers, but I find that to be oddly exhilarating! I unfortunately couldn't find The Chosen Ones on my Nook. It says it is supposed to be out Spring of 2014, but here it is summer and it's still not out. I really want (need) the next book in my life! I will definitely update you all if and when it comes out! By the way if you didn't catch from my review you really need to read this prequel!lol
