"Tess is finally safe from the reach of the Council, now that she is living in the Middlelands with the rebel Isolationists. With James having returned to Templeton, she easily falls back into her friendship with Henry, though her newfound knowledge of Robert’s chosen one status still stings. Even surrounded by people, Tess has never felt more alone. So she’s thrilled when James returns to the settlement, demanding to see Tess — until she finds out that it’s because her sister, Louisa, has been recruited into Tess’s old position at Templeton, and that the dangerously sadistic chosen one George has taken an interest in her." (Summary from goodreads.com)

 

Naturals was an interesting sequel to Chosen Ones. I was definitely excited to jump back into this fascinating world that Truitt has created again.

Tess is now in the Middlelands with the Isolationists while James has returned to Templeton. Tess has developed so much since the first book and continues to do so in this book. I like Tess because she isn't perfect and she is just growing up under these circumstances. It was also great to see some characters return and meet new ones too.

The plot itself started up instantly, but I particularly really enjoyed the last half of the book the most. It slowed down a bit for me after a couple of chapters in the beginning so it took some time for me to read this one until it picked back up for the last half. I wasn't really sure where this story would go next after the way that Chosen Ones ended, so I was definitely surprised by some moments. 

One of my favorite aspects of the first book was the setting, so again I just really enjoyed that. It was already really interesting as well as creepy and this sequel brought it to another level. I'm definitely looking forward to the next book now and can't wait to read what will happen next. Overall Naturals was a great sequel and I recommend this series.
