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.


"...this book was a great read and one that I think may readers will love especially lovers of a good dystopian read. If you haven't read this series you really need to start it because it is one you don't want to miss." --Shy TheWidowMaker, Goodreads

"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!" --Farrah, Goodreads

"The words are beautiful and Truitt shows instead of tells what happens to Tess. The characters continue to grow; the plot is engrossing; and the continued world building is fantastic. This is one book you don't want to miss." --Fall into Books

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 midlands. ...more

Whenever I get the chance to read a second book in a series, or trilogy, I often hesitate and pray that it's better than the original. Often times than naught, I'm left disappointed. For Naturals, the sequel to Chosen Ones, I got exactly what I wanted out of the ...more

At A Glance
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.

The Good
I loved Chosen Ones, the first book of the series. It has been one of th ...more


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 really ...more

By Shy The WidowMaker June 21, 2013

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 thi ...more

By Merin May 14, 2013

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 to c ...more

BOOK REVIEW by Michelle 10th APRIL 2013:


Two days later....

McNair, Eric, Jones, Robert, Henry and Tess are making their way to the Isolationist's Compound.

The compound is about ...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 Coun ...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, were a ...more

By Amber at Fall Into Books April 26, 2013

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 happ ...more

By Jenea April 04, 2013

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 way ...more

The Story-
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 in ...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.

This book how the name says it it talk a lot more about Naturals, their rules, how are they different from the Chosen Ones (The Lost Souls, #1) by Tiffany Truitt which is the fi ...more

By Mlpmom (Book Reviewer) June 25, 2013

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 Is ...more

Life is changed forever for Tess, she knows so much now. She is enlightened and well on her way to a sort of freedom with the Isolationists. She knows love and hate and hurt now and it better for it all.

The world around her is so much more than what had been taught to her. Life is different, Tess is ...more

By Tia April 20, 2013

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 th ...more
