  • Sophia Triad
    Wulfgar Hahn and Lily "You make me want to be better than I am. So I was trying to be a better man.""I didn't fall in love with a better man," she whispered. "I fell in love with you." Loosely connected to the main Elder Series, this little gem is worth-reading. The hesitant, almost forbidden love story between the Chosen priestess who needs to protect her small town located far far away at the Other Lands (Ys) and a warrior who seeks revenge f...

    *** Previously read as part of Amid the Winter SnowI very much enjoy the Elder Race series and this novella was no exception. Lily can see things and she’s been having dreams about two men battling. Now that Wulf has arrived on her doorstep she must choose sides. One will lead to happiness, while the other will lead to despair. Wolf is a bad and good man wrapped up in one. He’s formidable and honorable too. Lily is the Chosen and leader of he...

    3 1/2 Stars!I was lost for a little bit. I couldn't figure out where these characters fit in with the main Elder Races series. I never did figure that out; conclusion... It's a standalone novella. 😜 "He had already recognized he wanted her, but that was the moment Wulf fell in love. Because he might take her, and she might give in to him, but he knew he would never succeed in conquering her." ~Wulf“I didn’t fall in love with a better man,...

    4 Other World Stars!! As always, Thea Harrison weaves a fabulous other world story with an enduring couple, some action and an enjoyable story line. Even if you haven’t read the Elder Races series, which I highly recommend “The Chosen” can definitely be read as a stand-alone.* Narrated by the talented Sophie Eastlake who, as always did a fantastic job.

    Rating: 2 1/2 starsDarn.I wanted to like this extended long story more. As a huge Dragos and Pia fan, as a major lover of all-things-written by Thea Harrison, I needed to like the The Chosen more. Except something indefinable was missing.Wulf and Lily were amazing, cute and sizzled with each scene. The world-building was grand, except I got lost on the tour somewhere with the introduction to the world Ys. I felt as if I stumbled into the next do...

    "5- The Best of all Dances Stars!"Loved Lily and Wulf's characters, chemistry and story.Their "dance" was a wonderful read, and an excellent addition to the Elder Races World.

    I loved Wulf and Lily. They complemented each other perfectly, and gave exactly what the other needed. 4.5 stars
  • Danielle Gypsy Soul
    I'm a big fan of The Elder Races books but I think this can be read as a stand alone without much difficulty. Wulf was a wonderful character that I fell for and I loved that Lily brought out a softer side to him. Lily was strong but not necessarily in the traditional warrior way and she fit perfectly with Wulf. There was just enough action, humor and romance to make this a fantastic story. My only complaint is that I was hooked on these character...
  • Marta Cox
    I first came across this story in the anthology Amid The Winter Snow.It's a story that connects to the Elder Races books but has a much stronger type of fantasy vibe. A woman protected by a Goddess has prophetic dreams concerning two very different men and knows that the time is coming when she will make a crucial decision but which choice should she make ? It's particularly difficult when one of those men brings his troops to her door but Lily i...
  • Stephanie
    I really loved this fantasy romance novella, which perfectly mingled the fun of medieval-style romance with the joy of watching a smart, magical and wonderfully competent heroine grow into her own political power. The setting - a medieval-type society in one of the Other lands connected to contemporary Earth - felt genuinely unique, rich, and well-thought-through, a lovely link into Harrison's Elder Races series that also felt fresh and new. (And...
  • Sunny
    ARC ReviewTHE CHOSEN is a shot of Elder Races-world goodness. How Thea Harrison manages to create such a vivid world in a short story is beyond me. The CHOSEN is clever, gut-clenching, and entirely too romantic. I really enjoyed the struggle Lily goes through as the Chosen for her kingdom. The mantle of leadership can be heavy at times, but the way Wulf shows up for her is just right. I really hope Ms. Harrison choses to continue this story as th...
  • Jo (Mixed Book Bag)
    A nice story that has some ties to the Elder Races series but sits a long way outside. The characters are new and a different world is built. I liked both Wolf and Lily. They were complex characters who carried the plot and kept things interesting. There were some fun scenes between the two as rock met hard place. A story that adds to the series for fans but can stand alone as an introduction for new readers.

    This review was originally posted on Books of My Heart3.5 heartsI received this book for free from Author in exchange for an honest review. This does not affect my opinion of the book or the content of my review. This novella was part of  Amid the Winter Snow  which I reviewed earlier this year. I loved it so much!  Today The Chosen releases as a separate novella outside of the anthology.  I have read almost everything by Thea Harrison. She...

    I originally read this novella as part of the anthology that came out last Christmas. The stories are now available separately which The Chosen was included in that collection. This is part of the joint review that I did with E at The Book Pushers. The Chosen by Thea Harrison has a slightly different feel to the previous Elder Races books as its primarily set in the parallel fantasy worlds and is based in the kingdoms of the Y’s. Lily is a prie...

  • Mari (Smut Duchess)
    This was Thea Harrison's offering in the anthology . It's loosely tied to the Elder Races in that the story takes place in an other land and the Winter Solstice Masque of the gods is approaching. I liked the characters and the plot. The dialog was witty. No tstl characters here. Lily and Wulf's romance was very sweet. I wish it had been longer. 4.0 - 4.5 ***
  • Amyiw
    It was an interesting story with the two kingdoms battling and finding out which one, for certain, was the aggressor. Who was controlling the weather and causing these problems? But... the two characters only had sparks in her dreams, there just wasn't much chemistry. If the story was more interesting or seemed to have a point, more explanation of the Chosen and what it means, maybe but we are left with only partially understanding the conflict. ...
  • Kelly
    I'm a HUGE Elder Races fan, so it should come as no surprise that I absolutely ADORED Lily and Wulf's story. Lily was just so sweet and mindful that every choice she makes will have an impact on her people. And Wulf...Wulf is everything I love about Elder Races heroes. He's crafty and forceful, but he sees that too heavy a hand will send Lily running. So he takes his time with her and it was FANTASTIC. I guess you could say Lily's sweetness broug...
  • Dragana
    I was reluctant about reading this story. I even contemplated skipping it. It's not a secret that I read Elder races series just because of Dragos & Pia. So why would I read this story about new characters set into some new world?In the end, my OCD got the better of me. The falling in love part happened too quickly. Especially since they are not Wyr so it can't be explained with mating. But I loved the world and I hope we will se more of it...
  • MountainKat
    When I started listening to this, I realized how much I missed this world! I loved the narration, Sophie Eastlake is fabulous, and was immediately involved with the characters. This area in the world was unfamiliar, but I hope we get to see more. And then even more!
    Thea Harrison's "The chosen" was a good and super fast reading."The Chosen" la storia di Thea Harrison mi é piaciuta parecchio.
  • Paraphrodite
    3 stars.This story occurred in the Otherlands and involved people that haven't been introduced before. Unfortunately, that meant I wasn't very invested in what happened to them.
  • Sheila Melo
    THE CHOSEN by Thea Harrison: Lily has had visions where she has to choose between a wolf and a tiger. The man who she falls in love with has the possibility of saving her realm or destroying it. When a warrior comes to town, Lily has to decide which man he is.This novella takes place in Harrison's Elder Races universe although in a place apart from the characters and places in the novels. I very much enjoyed this story although the outcome seemed...
  • C.J.
    I’m a huge fan of the Elder races series so this story was a huge hit for me. It had a slightly different feel to it from the other stories in this series but it was refreshing and altogether, a brilliant story. The romance was lovely and there was plenty of action and emotion to keep the story moving forward. I hope there is more to come.
  • Magda
    My only qualm is that it's not really connected to the Elder Races series. I would read a standalone book or series about these characters, I enjoyed them BUT I don't know why it was looped in with Elder Races.
  • Speed
    THE CHOSEN!!!! As I stated I am a huge and avid fan of all things that have to do with Thea Harrison and the Elder Races series and this one is no different. In this story we have Lily and Wulf!!!! This story is set in another world where there is an abbey of Priestesses and Lily is The Chosen. Wulf is set upon gaining the Chosen One's help and at first it seems that he is not aware that Lily is indeed the Chosen One but we later find out that he...

    The story begins at an abbey that is under siege (and I use that term loosely) by Wulfgar, the Wolf of Braugne. If you're familiar with the Elder Race novels (you don't have to be to completely enjoy this read) then you know about the Other lands that run parallel to present day Earth. There are doorways in different parts of the world that open up to a different dimension where Others live. In these lands sorcery is king and the setting is somew...
