The Chosen Twelve
By James Breakwell
Genre: Science Fiction /Thriller
Age category: Adult
Release Date: 18 January 2021
Publisher: Rebellion Publishing

There are 22 candidates. There are 12 seats.

The last interstellar colony ship is down to its final batch of humans after the robots in charge unhelpfully deleted the rest. But rebooting a species and training them for the arduous task of colonisation isn’t easy – especially when the planet below is filled with monsters, the humans are more interested in asking questions than learning, and the robots are all programmed to kill each other.

But the fate of humanity rests on creating a new civilization on the planet below, and there are twelve seats on the lander. Will manipulation or loyalty save the day?

My Take: This was a fun book that deals with a dystopian future set in space in a space ship. The ship is run by A.I. who are suppose to train the children on board to colconize Earth. But some of the computers have gone bad and try to kill the children and some of them are still on the mission but have gotten stuck in the same place for 4000 days. This book started out with a bang and didn't let go of your throat till the very end. If it wasn't the computers trying to delete the humans and each other it is the humans trying to be chosen to be one of the twelve that gets to go down to colonize the planet. 12 out of 22 shoule be easy right well not really .
