Some loved ones are returning from death without any explanation. People listening to the news reports are unable to comprehend what is happening.

Peter has moved on since the death of Tracy, his childhood sweetheart. Married and now the father of a six year old, he learns that Tracy is one of the Returned.

This is the story of a lost love and the decisions that must be made.

Is life what it appears to be? Why do we long for the days of our youth?

This short story will leave the reader with questions about life, love and also death.

Highly recommended.

Not worth it if you are going to buy the Returned. It's just a chaper from the book the Returned

As I said, I first saw the TV series then found these three books for free on audible and I was delighted. These are short stories, each depicting the return of one person and the impact it has.

The narrator is very cool and calm in his story telling method which adds to the over all chilling effect of the stories.

That said, I found these stories to be very dark and for now, although I think this is a brilliant way to promote the full length novel, I will wait a bit before I buy the novel.

The TV series, although dark enough does not really convey the start reality of what it is like to have a loved one return from the dead, in that aspect these books should get a 5* rating for in these stories that reality is all too clear. Unfortunately the narrator is so good at his job that these stories, although I did not listen to them one after the other left me drained.

If dark and gloomy is your thing, then you will adore this. If not, why not give these a try in anyway they are free after all.

A detective shows up on your porch with your loved one who passed away already.
Wow this and the other 2 books had me from the first paragraph. I read them in one
reading. They are short stories leading up to a full story. Very worth the read, like I
said from the beginning to the end

I wondered why there was a prequel to The Returned. Jason Mott wrote a wonderful story about those who had been "returned." I viewed The Choice as a kind of short story introduction. It is like a movie trailer for the main attraction; just enough to whet your appetite. It did a great job in that sense. If you'd like to dip your toe in the waters of The Returned without committing yourself to the book then reading The Choice will fit the bill.

This is only part of a whole book. Wish I had known that beforehand ~~ I would have bought the whole book instead. Other than that, it is an interesting read, even tho it is SHORT!!

Not much thought went into writing this short story. After reading this, and the other short works pertaining to The Return, I chose not to read the book itself.

These short stories are amazing! If The Returned is as good as The First, The Sparrow & The Choice, I will be recommending it for a long time.
