He sheds new light on my mom, on my grandfather Sicheii, and on how I started down this path. He spins a tale about love, a recent murder, and mysterious strangers who come to town looking for a medicine man, my grandfather.
My father reveals his own shadowy past in the story, too, but I’m not worried about who he used to be. I care only about who he is now, and who I am, and the foe I face.
He made a choice back then, and it led to all of this.
Now I give him a second chance—an opportunity to make things right.

Second Chances – A “Chosen” Short Story by Jeff Altabef and Erynn Altabef is a teen/young adult mystery, thriller, and fantasy, with a supernatural bite thrown in to grab my attention completely. I am certainly no longer a young adult but I was glued to this story. It took me on a wild but short ride of action, mystery, and supernatural thrills with enough twists and turns of a full novel.
Tribal folk lore, mystery, suspense. Great reading for teens and adults alike.
It was so well written and there was such an intriguing mystery to Juliet’s circumstances that I immediately downloaded Wind Catcher, the first book in the series from where the characters in this short story appear. Proved to be a wise decision as Wind Catcher was also a brilliant read.
