Contains two companion stories to the Darkest Powers trilogyBelonging the novella set after The Reckoning Der. Ces in the stories I m going with Facing Facts as 35 and belonging as 36Facing Facts 35 Very short but I loved seeing Chloe going toe to toe against her fears I also have to admit that I adore Derek and Chloe together She s come a long way from the girl who stammered and cowered in his

Ek's werewolf family comes to claim him Narrated by DerekFacing Facts short story set after The Reckoning Tor. And Simon s emotions about this revealed secret It was nice to read another story from Chloe s POV but from al the bonus stories I have to say I liked this one the leastBelonging is a funny story about Derek s wolf family trying to kidnap him I liked this story because it was written in Derek s POV He loves Chloe just so much and it s really cool to experience their love from his perspective It s also interesting to meet other werewolves D
