    Blindingly brilliant paranormal romance novella!

    This is the second story from the anthology Amid the Winter Snow, originally published as an anthology in December 2017, with the intention by the authors to break the stories up into individual novellas in March 2108. THE CHOSEN is set in her Elder Races world. The gods and goddesses of the Elders play a part in this tale, and there is reference to the Wyr, (beings that have a human form and a second animal form, many of whom are immortal). However, no prior exposure to the Elders Races world is necessary. Lily is the head priestess at the abbey in Calles. She’s had visions showing she must pick between the tiger and the wolf to save her tiny country. Then Wulfgar of Guerlan shows up at her gate. Forced to work with Wulf to defend her abbey, hero and heroine are soon beguiled by each other as dangers surround them at every turn. I adore Lily, with her quick wit and her keen intelligence. I love that Wulf gives her the respect she is due and allows her to do what she needs to do, even if it hurts his heart, because he truly grows to love her. This story blew past my usual ratings, ranking well above 5 out of 5 stars.

    I liked it so much, I read it again.

    Lily and Wulf are probably one of my top favourite Thea Harrison couples. It is such a wonderfully romantic short story with so many plot twists that I do not want to say too much and spoil the plot. I love that neither character is perfect but that each has a strong core of values, duty and responsibility. Ms. Harrison takes no short cuts and following Lily and Wulf evolve from two strangers suspicious of each other’s motives to two people who love each other so much that they would sacrifice their own happiness for the other is so heart-warming. I would recommend this book to read again and again and again.

    Wonderful story

    The Chosen by Thea Harrison is a novella from her wonderful Elder Races series. This was a different storyline then the normal Eder Races, and I loved it. Harrison has created two wonderful heroes in Lily and Wulf, whom I loved, Lily is a powerful witch who is the chosen one (by a goddess). She is the leader of a group of witches and defenders who believe in her, and protect her. In her visions there are two men at war, and Lily must find a way to find the true culprit and stop the war that can destroy their lands. She meets Wulf who comes to see the chosen one for help in fighting this war. Despite everyone fearing him as the terrible villain, Lily senses something different. Wulf started off as an angry leader, trying to prove that he was innocent of those rumors of him killing his brother. Soon Lily sees a sweet funny caring side of him. I know after a short period, I fell in love with Wulf, and Lily begins to fall too. I also liked many of the secondary characters that Harrison has created, such has both Wulf’s top soldiers and Lily’s witches. As always, Thea Harrison gives us a wonderful, romantic story, great couple, exciting action and an enjoyable story line. Even if you have not read the Elder Races series, which you should be reading, The Chosen reads very well as a standalone.

    A favourite series

    Thea Harrison is a must read for me, I've loved all of her books and that's the reason I read this one when it was part of an anthology. It's set in the Elder race's world but it's kinda totally separate so it can be read as a complete standalone. It builds the world up really well and you didn't feel like you were missing out on anything. There's quite abit going on so you need to concentrate for those first few chapters and then I just got sucked into the bubble that is Lily and Wulf. They worked really well with each other and lily quietly schooled Wulf in the way to behave to get what he wants. He was very abrupt and forceful but she chipped away at his harder outer shell and I found him to be really lovable. Lily i felt was still finding her feet but she has a quiet strength about her and it rose up when needed. Really fun chemistry and I was left wanted so much more. I'm really hoping this could get expanded in the future as would make a brilliant full length novel.

    Choose The Chosen

    I received an ARC of this book in return for reviewing The Chosen. I am a long-time fan of Harrison and am amazed at how she continuously puts out stories that draw me in and leave me longing for more. With her novella The Chosen, Harrison returns to the world of the Elder Races but with a twist: this story takes place 100% in the Other Lands. This setting gives the story a medieval feel with that added element of magic. In Wulf, we have an alpha warrior reminiscent of Dragos (Dragon Bound: sexy, intelligent, possessive, vengeful, and take charge), but with more sensitivity and flirtiness. Lily, the heroine, is another great sassy, strong woman with a gift that is a burden and a blessing. Even though the H/H made me think of some of my other favorite characters, they are in no way weak shadows or derivations. They are unique, and their relationship is, too. This book is a testament to Harrison’s abilities as a writer. It is clearly the launch of a new series, and I found the pace and exposition perfect. Harrison packs a lot of detail and info in this short work, but I never once felt confused, bored, or overwhelmed. Amazingly, I also never thought things were happening too fast. She weaves the story threads together in perfect harmony. I cannot wait to read future stories with Lily and Wulf, as well as the other characters introduced. I’m even hoping some Earth-side Elder Races characters pop up. This book is a definite winner.
