I didn’t discover the Chosen short stories until I finished the series. It was actually very nice to be given a different perspective after the fact!
Here we get a glimpse at what Emma was dealing with as she and Jake began to be hunted down. It was definitely scary to read someone reporting a situation and not being taken seriously by the police. This definitely set in motion her chaotic plan of living on the run with Jake.
You don’t HAVE to read this short story to read the series, but it wouldn’t hurt! I don’t have any criticisms of this installment as it is a perfect companion to the series. *****FIVE STARS*****
