Chosen - A Children of the Gods Short Story by Monica Millard

Chosen - A Children of the Gods Short Story by Monica Millard

Chosen - A Children of the Gods Short Story is a prequel to Monica Millard's Novel Children of the Gods (A Chosen Novel). Reka lives in a world where aliens have come to earth pretending that they are gods. She has lived all of her life (seventeen years) with the Holorans stealing her friends and using thier bodies as host. At a young age she was taught to stay humble and remain below the radar of the gods and never reveal her ability.

On the night before the choosing Reka sneaks out of her mother's house to go be with Niko the guy that she is in love with. Reka doesn't think that Niko knows that she even exist but she wants to talk to him and let him know how she feels about him. Reka is worried that Niko will be chosen by the Holorans and taken away. Although she knows that they could just as easily take her and not Niko or both but on this night she more or less believes that they will take Niko before her.

I read the prequel to Children of the Gods after I read Children of the Gods (A Chosen Novel). I actually did not know about it until I had finished Children of the Gods. The Smashwords link was at the end of the book. I am glad that I found it and read it. It explained more of who Niko was to Reka and how she felt about him. It is very short with only 10 pages but I did enjoy reading it. It showed a slightly different side of Reka. The prequel is free on Smashwords, on Amazon it is $0.99.
