Description

In this short story by Jason Mott, author of The Returned, one determined couple seeks to reunite a young girl with the father who thought he had lost her forever.…

When Heather and Matt Campbell find 10-year-old Tatiana Rusesa on the side of the highway, she is thousands of miles away from her village in Sierra Leone. She hasn't seen her family in almost two decades, not since she and her mother were killed by rebel soldiers. Now Tatiana has inexplicably returned, a lost orphan with no place to call home.

As the world dives deeper into uncertainty and chaos, Heather is determined to save Tatiana and help her find her way back to her family. But how much is she willing to lose to protect a girl she doesn't even know?

Learn how the mysterious reappearances begin in The First, and don't miss Jason Mott's unforgettable debut novel, The Returned, from Harlequin MIRA, a moving tale of a family navigating this unusual new reality and given a second chance at life.

Touching prequel that will leave you wondering...

STORY- The Sparrow is the second of three prequels to Mott's book "The Returned." People all over the world are returning from the dead -- yes, returning, seemingly normal and unharmed, not zombies. This is the touching story of a young girl who returns. It's very short and enjoyable. The only problem is that it's a prequel, so if you want to find out where these people are coming from and why, you gotta buy the book. Nevertheless, it was free and I enjoyed the 40 minutes I spent listening to it.

NARRATOR - Good job, nothing special.

OVERALL - I think it's worth the time and the free download whether you plan to buy "The Returned" or not.

more requested more received

This was a great follow up to the introduction to the series (The Returned). This was a demonstration on what was happening around the world from different standpoints. I found it intriguing the differences in the reactions to the returned.

Matt was an ASS with all capital letter all day long. He had not feeling, no thought to the child but only to himself. I could feel that through every word.

interesting

this is the second prequel I've read from this series so far both prequels has made me curious about the full story. We keep getting snippets of different people that have returned from death, but of course you're missing most of the story. the author has done a great job getting you interested in the story while keeping the rest a mystery.

So so prequil to The Returned

Maybe worth the couple of bucks it cost, this 40 minute prequel is fairly blah. I purchased all 3 prequels after I'd heard the story and frankly, it is a waste of money by them. Listen to them first if you plan on listening to The Returned.

Cold and eerie.

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.

Good, but too early to tell

This is another prequel to The Returned. My review is similar to "The First" but this story goes a little deeper. It explores the different reactions that people would have in this type of phenomenon. Still too early to fairly evaluate the book (The Returned.)

Best of the Three

Again another love! This one has more of a heart pulling feel to it than the first one. I think having it centered around a child does that to you.
