4 out of 5 (very good)
This novella gives you an introduction to Jessie and Ty and Jessie's premonition that shows her the Great Fire of Chicago and how it affects their lives. It is very well written and certainly describes in detail the fire and the effect. Thoroughly enjoyed this book and am looking forward to the rest of the Druid series.
