Review: Chosen by Sin by Virna DePaul

Published December 20th 2011
Source: Author, for the purpose of an honest review
Genre: Paranormal Romance
Series: Para-Ops, book #3
Best read in order: yes
Stars: 5
Flames: 3

Shifters have begun killing each other. The shifters have always been the Otherborn that the world knows the least about. In an attempt to see this race have more peace and possibly become better rooted into human society Mahone and the Para-Ops team become involved. This assignment sends Dex to France and back into the arms of the woman he had believed to be a one night stand.

I loved Dex’s book. I picked him out as my favorite character while reading Chosen by Blood. I love shifters and characters with pasts that have left them damaged always lure me in too. He did not disappoint. The readers finally get to know exactly who Dex wants revenge on and why. That was a very interesting part of the story. The reasons as to why Dex ended up spending his childhood in a were orphanage and not in the loving arms of his mother is very tragic. Dex goes into his newest assignment with gusto knowing that he will soon get to have his revenge.

Jes was introduced in Chosen by Fate. She is a scientist trying to help the Otherborn she has lived around her whole life. Jes also has an extreme case of survivor’s guilt. This survivor’s guilt pushes her to make some selfish and sometimes unwise decisions that can impact the lives of those around her. I liked her. She brings her own damaged baggage into the fray and owns it. She wants to save her family and there is almost nothing she will not do to see that it happens. She also brought out a different side of Dex. Reading Dex evolve into someone who can care about others and himself was incredible. She’s a perfect complement to him.

Readers are not only introduced to some new characters, but a fascinating race of Otherborn is also introduced. I cannot wait to see where Virna goes with the Draci.


  1. Dex has been my favorite too. I downloaded this as soon as Virna announced its release on twitter and I can't wait to start it!

  2. Dex is my favorite! I am about half way through with this one :)

  3. I just finished Wraith's book and was blown away. I can not wait to dig into Dex's story. This is turning into a monster of a series. Great review.

  4. I swear you guys are making me teary-eyed!! It's such a blessing when readers connect with your characters! :) Thank you for the great review!

  5. So the romance peeps have another great recommendation to add to by pile. :-) Keep 'em coming!
