Brink of Dawn by Jeff and Erynn Altabef

Welcome to the Brink of Dawn Tour

Authors Jeff Altabef and Erynn Altabef

My Review:

Once again Jeff and Erynn have done it. This book was so well written, the transitions between authors seamless enough they could be a single entity. The story is fast paced, picking right back up from where Chosen left off and kept me page turning until the last. Worth mentioning is the excellent interplay between the other fellow Chosen, which had me snickering on more than one occasion. Although I sometimes felt I was left with more questions than answers, I’m excited to see what’s coming next in this excellently filled-out universe.

About the Book


Follow-up to the multiple award-winning Wind Catcher:

They walk among us as if they are gods.

Only the Chosen know what they are.

Only the Chosen know to fear them.

And only the Chosen can defeat them.

Juliet Wildfire Stone and her best friend, Troy Buckhorn, barely escaped their sleepy Arizona town alive. Now they’re speeding to New York City to find the three other Chosen. The Chosen must band together to face an ancient foe that threatens all humanity.

Yet Juliet doesn’t know whom to trust, and strange things are happening in the City.

The Chosen will be tested, their resolve questioned, and their flaws exposed. Each must decide whether he or she will fulfill their destiny—or run. To defeat the enemy, they must stop battling among themselves and overcome their own struggles.

Only one can lead them. Will Juliet embrace her powers in time?

Brink of Dawn picks up where the multiple-award-winning first book in the Chosen series, Wind Catcher, left off, but it can also be read as a stand-alone novel. Continue the adventure! And be sure to watch for the third and final installment in this exciting series, Scorched Souls, to launch in late 2016.

Wind Catcher Review

WC ReleaseThis fantasy adventure series is steeped in American Indian culture

and so much more.

Winner: Mom’s Choice Award — Silver Metal
Winner: Awesome Indies — Seal of Approval
Recipient: Readers’ Favorite — 5 Star Review

Juliet Wildfire Stone hears voices and sees visions, but she can’t make out what they mean. Her

eccentric grandfather tells her stories about the Great Wind Spirit and Coyote, but he might as well be

speaking another language. None of it makes any sense.

When she stumbles upon a series of murders, she can’t help but worry her grandfather might be

involved. To discover the truth, Juliet must choose between her new life at an elite private school and

her Native American heritage. Once she uncovers an ancient secret society formed over two hundred

years ago to keep her safe, she starts to wonder whether there’s some truth to those old stories her

grandfather has been telling her.

All she wants is to be an average sixteen-year-old girl, but she has never been average-

couldnever be average.

Betrayed by those she loves, she must decide whether to run or risk everything by fulfilling her

destiny as the Chosen.

Wind Catcher is a suspenseful, wonderfully written story that will capture your attention

and hold it prisoner. A book that you won’t want to escape from. Brava!” – Stephen Fisher, Readers’

In all 100%, complete, honesty: I was highly skeptical of this book. One of the authors is a teenager, (an exotic species of human I normally steer clear of, and have very little patience for,) and it’s about Native Americans, (and they’re from New York.) As a member of a southern tribe, (No, really, even though I’m this pale. Chitimacha tribe of Louisiana, look it up. We make awesome baskets,) there was no way, no way this could be anything but hokey, right?
Jeff, Erynn, there’s a little something in my family we like to call the “I’m Right Dance.” It’s thirty seconds of unadulterated booty shaking, finger pointing, every-think-you’ve-ever-hated-about-obnoxious-winners, free-for-all.
You may commence any time you’re ready. And since there is two of you, I’ll give you sixty seconds. Because I was wrong.
Wind Catcher is engaging and realistic, incorporating enough historical elements to make it original. (No small feat in the teeming masses of YA.) I wasn’t forced to deal with another stale love triangle, (thank you!) Best of all, the writing was consistently well crafted, especially since there are two authors. I never thought, “Oh, she wrote this part, because yadda yadda yadda.” It was all very well done, and a breath of fresh air. As it’s billed as “Chosen, Book 1,” I’m curious to see what the authors have in store for us in the next installation.
