Publisher's Summary

What do you get when you mix a couple of immortals, a snotty archangel, the Father of Lies, a redneck street preacher and a couple of wiseass waitresses from Texas?
You get a cross-country road trip to save the world, of course!
Adam (yeah that Adam) has been around for a long time, but even he's never seen anything like this. He has to gather his ex-girlfriend and his youngest daughter with his ex-wife (you remember Eve, right?) and his oldest surviving son (Cain) and get them across the country for a meeting with Archangel Michael and Lucifer to determine the fate of the world.
Along the way there are strip clubs, cheap beer, expensive whiskey, biker bar fights, shotgun blasts in motel parking lots, sing-alongs in public parks and other wild adventures as our group of intrepid immortals and universal icons travel to save the world.
The Chosen is the first novel from best-selling fantasy novelist John G. Hartness. A wild comic ride through biblical genre-bending, The Chosen is as funny as it is probing. With characters pulled from the pages of the Bible and from everyday life, The Chosen takes a hard look at what happens when the divine becomes the everyday.

It was ok right up tell the end

The for most of the book I thought the story was ok. It was interesting to see the world from Adam's point of view (again sort of) so for 95% of the book I was going along thinking this book is ok I'll keep going just to see how it ends but the ending was so so so bad all I could think was that's 5 hours of my life I'm never going to get back! People spoiler alert he picks the dark side. The author try's to say no he's picking free will but no he is picking suffering war and death over life and love! If you do make the mistake of getting this book and you hear the end note that lucifer talks about his side being the bad stuff but also art and make up sex and music..... The author is trying to say all the cool stuff but nowhere in his list the devil talk about real love and real fulfillment

I never do this I never write reviews but I was so angry about the ending I had to
