The Chosen of Gaia is the perfect choice for light reading and entertainment. M. Mariz presents a perfect society with immense technological advancements and little worry about crime or disease.

Albert and his family are introduced to this new world, Gaia, as a family of Chosen. They'll have to adjust to their new life or return to Earth with no memory of their experience. Albert, his twin sister Ruth, and their mother Sophia wholeheartedly agree to the journey, but their father, Victor, hesitates. The very opening of the novel presents to this normal family a life-altering decision that changes their perspective of themselves and the worlds around them.

Within this story, Mariz doesn't let everything proceed smoothly. The characters face opposition and uncertainty. The Chosen of Gaia is truly a story that readers of any age can enjoy because of the lessons both the parents and children learn. Albert and Ruth's journey is the most impressive because they come to blossom on Gaia, especially when their peaceful stay on the small, green planet turns violent. Even when separated from their parents they learn to rely on each other and stand alone against the people who would dare try to force them from their new home.

The Chosen of Gaia has light elements of mystery and science-fiction. Light, because there isn't a lot of complicated jargon and the story doesn't get more complicated than exploring life on a hidden planet with futuristic technology. M. Mariz's debut young adult novel comes highly recommended!

A conflicted Albert must find the strength to challenge authority by relying on his newfound allies and gift for Revelation. Prepare for adventure, humor and suspense in this fast-paced tale of a "normal" family striving for their place in a "perfect" world.
