This is a short story of the beginning of Gwen Frost. I loved this book cause it gave a better insight on Gwen and her gift. The reader meets Gwen as we first see her powers come into play. I really adored that the setting is in the past so the reader for the first first time gets to see Gwen's mom.I feel the story gives a great back round history to Gwen and her life. I loved that while it was filled with he discovery of her power, it also foreshadowed the dark future that Gwen will be facing.If you have not picked up this series you should. This is a great short story that sets the tone for a great series that I know everyone will enjoy!
