Few Are Chosen, By Storm Grant

**This book contains Male Male Relations**
Sparks fly between virgin teenage demon hunters when the Chosen One turns out to be the Chosen . . . Two?

Apprentice warrior Blake St. Blake is the Chosen One, raised by an ancient order to defend the world against evil. Well, maybe not the whole world, but at least his neighborhood in downtown Detroit. When a dreaded reflux demon is sighted in a local cemetery, Blake is sent off to his very first battle, armed with his sword, his super-senses, his black leather duster, and a few well-rehearsed one-liners.

But another Chosen One gets in Blake’s way—an apprentice wizard named Shadow. While the boys argue about who’s the more chosen of the two, the demon escapes.

Blake wants to be angry, but it turns out he and Shadow have a lot in common. Besides, Shadow’s pretty cute, and Blake can’t help but think that the wizard’s skills (and hands and lips and other bits) might make the perfect complement to his. Blake and Shadow are brave enough to challenge the reflux demon in a second battle, but will they have the courage to tell each other how they feel?
I had really high hopes when I had started reading this book, to be honest the blurb sold me on the book.  But after starting to read it, it felt like I had to force myself to keep reading.  The writing style just didn’t seem to fit with me I believe.

The characters didn’t set well with me either.  It felt like there were times that Blake didn’t really even want to say what he was saying, but he did.  The chemistry between Shadow and Blake as well didn’t seem realistic.  Now I know this is a book, but you would think there would be something between them.

Overall, I didn’t really enjoy this book.  I think I will give the author another shot, but besides that this wasn’t a good read for me.
