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!
I want so bad to mention some spoilers, but I won’t! I loved seeing Will’s family. James, of course, is a bad-a bestie. Finally, the mysterious fella at the bar. It makes SO MUCH SENSE! Ugh… I want to know so much more about this guy, but I guess I’ll never get it. 🙂 That’s okay because ****** wasn’t a main character. Oh, and Will’s “dad”… What. A. Jerk.
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*****
