The Chase is over. The world is freed. But the Law remains.
In the aftermath of the Chase, the world is divided. Struggling to maintain its chokehold on the population, the World Coalition broadcasts its persecution of the Liberated, those who celebrate life free from the Law-including Sheila Kemp, who is suffering the unbearable cost of telling the truth.
Forced from the safety of their hideout, Willis and Perryn embark on a mission to discover a new set of friends in a rebel group known as the Underground. With the help of an informant known only as the Watcher, the two join a daring rescue in the heart of the capital of the Western Alliance-one that reveals the truly sinister intentions of the Chairman.
The mission takes a turn when the group is forced to make an impossible choice with consequences that could prove invaluable or catastrophic. The fate of the Underground and the hope of the Liberated might hinge on their discovery-one that might not only threaten the world but also unravel the confidence in each other they’ve forged since the Chase.
Book 2 of The Chase Runner series.
Willis, Perryn, and Sheila wanted to believe The Chase has been run and The Law is now over. But that is not reality. The Choice, book 2 in Bradley Caffee’s The Chase Runner series, builds on The Chase’s victory. Now the Liberated and Underground are working together, encouraging the world to fight the Coalition. Willis and Perryn struggle to find their place in this new era. Can they stay secluded? Should they seek revenge against The Coalition? And what is the difference between living under The Law and living under grace when you have free will? Caffee’s tight prose makes The Choice a quick Empire Strikes Back–style dystopian sequel that is difficult to resist.
