Love can’t be eclipsed…
Ripped away from those she loves most, Tess is heartbroken as her small band of travelers reaches the Isolationist camp in the mysterious and barren Middlelands. Desperate to be reunited with James, the forbidden chosen one who stole her heart, she wants nothing to do with the rough Isolationists, who are without allegiance in the war between the Westerners and Easterners. But having their protection, especially for someone as powerful as Tess, may come at a cost.
When James returns, Tess’s world once again feels complete—until she discovers her sister, Louisa, is in danger, held captive by the rogue chosen one George. Tess will do anything to protect her loved ones—but will the price be more than she can give?
Tiffany Truitt’s Lost Souls series is a thought-provoking, thrilling story that asks who the true enemy really is—the chosen ones who are different, or the naturals…who are just like us.
Naturals is the second book in Tiffany Truitt's The Lost Souls series. In book one, The Chosen Ones, we see Tess sentenced to death by the Council after she discovered she can reproduce. She is rescued by Robert, Henry and James, with the help of some naturals from an isolation camp in the midlan... ...more

Everything was going really well. The story was interesting and suspenseful. But then stupid decision after stupid decision was made and I just got sick of it.

**THIS IS A SPOILER-FREE REVIEW**
When I read Chosen Ones last year, I enjoyed the book despite small issues I had with it. The book had interesting characters and a romance to die for. After how Chosen Ones ended, I was looking forward to reading Naturals, the sequel.
Tess, as a character, has rea... ...more
After reading the first of this series I couldn't wait to jump by into Tess's world and I loved how much has changed for her. The author starts us off with us meeting up with Tess again and her adjusting to life away from the world she new and living with Isolationists. Wow the world building in... ...more
I enjoyed Chosen Ones, but can easily say that Naturals is better. You can certainly tell that this is Ms. Truitt's second book. The plotting and pacing are better, and the characters more relatable. I found Tess, especially, to be extremely strong in this installment. She was much more willing t... ...more

Even better than the first! I had high hopes for Naturals and it met every one. Full of thrills, surprises, and topped off with a game-changer ending, this book was brilliant!
On a side note, I really appreciated that the Isolationists weren't seen as "good guys" to combat the "bad guys" on the C... ...more
This is the second book in the Lost Souls series and while she does give you a lot of information to fill in some of the blanks if you haven't read the first book, I am really glad that I had. (Check out my review of Chosen Ones.) There may be some spoilers from Chosen Ones in my review below.
Naturals picks up where Chosen Ones leaves off. Tess, Henry, and Robert are making their way to the Isolationalist Camp, after Tess sadly and reluctantly has to leave James behind. Breaking free from a world where a government indoctrinated belief system has taught that humanity, or Naturals, wer... ...more
Naturals illustrates just how much Truitt has grown as an author. This installment opens with an emotional prologue in which I could actually feel Tess' emotions. Compared to Chosen Ones, the emotional writing is a huge improvement. The words are beautiful and Truitt shows instead of tells what h... ...more
After finishing Chosen Ones, I was antsy to start this. It wasn’t hard to fall for Tess and James, their connection and love was something I enjoyed so much in the first book. After learning a lot about the world the Chosen Ones live in, it was nice to learn about the Naturals, their beliefs and... ...more

Tess, Henry and Robert finally make it to the isolationist's camp, but it is far from paradise. The isolationist's live a hard life, each working for the food they eat. Many of the younger kids dislike Henry and Tess, and believe them to be spoiled. Tensions rise and grow worse as Tess... ...more
Giving the book at big 5 out of 5 stars. Love the book and the cover makes sense for what is the big plot. Naturals is the second book from the series The Lost Souls.

I was so ready to jump into this one after finishing the first book. I just had to see where the author would take Tess next. I needed to know if James was okay and where he was and what he was doing. I needed to know more about Robert and Henry and the resistance. I needed to know more about the... ...more
Naturals was an interesting sequel to Chosen Ones. I was definitely excited to jump back into this fascinating world that Truitt has created again.

Chosen Ones became one of my new favorite dystopias last year, and I sat on pins and needles waiting for the sequel. I’m excited to say that Naturals was just as amazing and didn’t disappoint, and now I’m eagerly awaiting the... ...more

Just so you people know the blurb has a lot of spoilers, and I hate that.

The world around her is so much more than what had been taught to her. Life is different, Tess... ...more
You know, this novel was better than the first in a lot of ways but I'm really getting annoyed with the whole James leaving and coming back bullshit. It's overrated and overused. I think this author needs to find some more ideas. Regardless it's a good novel, I just get completely frustrated when... ...more
