This was the perfect addition to the series. It is a quick read, and I love Siobhan's writing!!

The True calling Short Story Collection is a fun collection of 4 short stories set in the true calling world. The first two stories were really short, a bit too short for my taste, but they do shed some extra light on two small, but important parts of the series. The last two stories were my favorite. They are almost over the top happy, but it's just so nice to see some happiness after all these characters have been through and the last short sto

Torn Apart

I’ve missed Cal Remus. His love for Ariana Skyee throughout the entire series was one of my favorite parts of the entire True Calling trilogy. The time between True Calling and Beyond Reach, where Ariana doesn’t know what happened to Cal, was accounted for in this short story through his eyes. If you’ve read the entire trilogy, you know how everyth

This book reminded me how much I loved and enjoyed the True Calling series. Here are the links to my reviews of the True Calling series- True Calling (book 1), Beyond Reach (book 2), Light of a Thousand Stars (book 2.5), Destiny Rising (book 3).

I am such a HUGE fan of authors doing books like this! I love to read a series and be sitting in that series hangover state and get the satisfaction of the extension of the series by little stories like these, especially contained within a collection so you can read them all at once. I'm also a big fan of getting parts of the story retold from another character's point of view. We get both in this collection from Ms. Davis and I couldn't be happier.

In Torn Apart, we get to see Cal's POV of what

The True Calling Short Story Collection is the perfect way to spend an afternoon or morning. It’s a quick read and reminded me of the characters that hold a special place in my heart. Siobhan’s writing is wonderful as always, and the characters are complex and realistic. If you haven’t read anything by her yet, I suggest downloading something immediately.

Read the entire review of the collection!

I finished the final book in the True Calling series today, but I just wasn't ready to let these characters go. I love the short stories the author writes for her series. They go behind the scenes as well as show events that happened before or after the books. I'm definitely looking forward to Duncan and Lily's stories that will be released later, and I'm sure some of the characters I love will make appearances there as well.

***I voluntarily reviewed a complimentary copy of this book.***

I had already read the True Calling series and most of the short stories, but when the short story collection came out, I felt compelled to re-read them. Again, I loved them! I had wanted to refresh my memory with the details of the series in order to get the most out of the short stories & I'm really glad I did.... So many events from the series are explained & given closure in the short stories; it was a great way for Ms Davis to not only conclude the series, but also set the stage for ...more

***Note: It is best if you've read The True Calling Series before, because it contains major spoilers***

I never knew how much I was missing this excelent young adult sci-fi series, until this very moment. And it looks like Mrs. Davis still has some wonderful ideas towards continuing the series at hand. I can only congratulate her for everything she's doing because she does a badass

I received a free copy of this book from the author in exchange for my honest review. This has not influenced my opinion nor have I been compensated in any way. These short story's give you a glimpse into the lives of the characters in the future and how they have changed, I love how ariana and cal as well as zane and Mel have made a lovely life for themselves. The short story's seem to be the perfect way to end things as well as start of a new series about lily. I'm a little saddend by the way ...more

A nice collection of short stories (or expanded chapters) for the True Calling series. I especially liked the last one, Under the Mistletoe. It makes me really eager for Lily's story, which Siobhan will be telling in a spin off series. The first book will come out in 2017- I don't want to wait!

This is a definite must if you are a fan of the True Calling series, but I would definitely recommend reading it after you've finished the series.
This short story collection is filled with perfect stories. The cover seemed cool and the fonts and colors made it stand out.
Each of the short stories has been very detailed and addicting to read. I loved being able to read about each character and what happened through their eyes.
This is a definite read and I highly recommend that you read this trilogy and other works by Siobhan Davis as it is a compelling and page turning series that will keep you on the edge.

Since I am unable to find a separate link for Torn Apart I will put it here, my reviews of the other short stories are in their respective links.
All I have to say is I could feel the heart ache coming from Cal and was rooting hard for him to get back together with Ariana. Since I already read the entire series this made so much more sense knowing what happened

You get a different perspective and insight into situations that you didnt expect. The series is wonderful and this was a surprising treat! Siobhan is a master at story telling that grips you. If you like romance, sci-fi, and mystery add this to you list today!

I really loved this collection. I definitely recommend reading this along with the series! I will go ahead and place separate reviews for each story.

I really loved this short stories series. I loved seeing Ari, Cal, and the rest of the True Calling crew.

Things I have got to say are much more happier in the book (duh). It was nice getting to understand more about Ari’s mom, Zane’s future, and Ari’s and Cal’s married life. My favorite scene out of the entire short story collection is the Christmas scene and wedding. Man, it was so adorable.

I received a free copy of "Torn Apart" and "Ending and Beginnings" from the author. Both of which I read after True Calling.

Torn Apart - narrated by Cal Remus, this story explains what happens to Cal at the end of True Calling.
This short story was good in we got find out what sort of happened with Cal. We are also hinted that there is something Cal regrets to have done, which is why he wasn't trustworthy in some people's eyes in True Calling.

Endings and Beginnings - narrated by Anneka Skyee.

I love this short story collection! I loved the True Calling series, so I was ecstatic that there were short story addition to the series! These short stories are a must read for anyone who liked the series. There are definitely spoilers to the series in these short stories, so be sure to read the main books of the series first. The following will have spoilers for the series, so you have been warned!

Torn Apart:
This short story is told from Cal's POV and it took place in the last chapter of True Calling.

Cal is separated from Ari as she is earth-bound and we can see how determined Cal is as he decided to do everything he can in his power to find his way back to Ari.

Endings and Beginnings:
This short story was set before True Calling, when Ari's mom Anneka was engaged to Nate (Cal's dad).

Woah! I hear you say...

I was nice to read the miscellaneous short stories (Torn Apart, Endings and Beginnings) in a single collection. That being said, I'm not certain I would actually call any of the short stories, short stories; rather, extended chapters. I'm glad that Zane finally moved on in "Perfect Moment". I'm sure that Cal and Mel will always be suspicious of Zane's feelings to Ari but you could feel his happiness in "Under the Mistletoe".

Lily and Deacon are rather sad. Deacon's parentage clearly bothers him

Very short - not worth buying

Although i loved the true calling series this short story collection is ridiculously short and kinda pointless!! Its really not worth spending money on and isnt even available on kindle unlimited like the rest of the series. You are not missing out on anything by slipping this book.
