For as long as Seventeen-year-old Reka Cushing can remember, she has watched her friends and her neighbors be stolen, their bodies used as hosts for the Halorans; an alien race that has come to earth posing as gods. For just as long, Reka has lived in fear of drawing the eye of a Haloran, keeping her head down hoping not to be caught in their sites.
The threat of losing Niko, the man she loves causes her to act, to draw attention to herself. In doing so, she has drawn more interest than she intended.
This is a short story prequel to Children of the Gods, the first title in the Chosen series.
