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.
