Genre: New Adult Paranormal

Maggie and Caleb are married, leaders of their people, parents to their children, and happier than they ever dreamed, even with the visions they saw of it to prove it so. The council is still rebelling against Maggie’s changes, but this time it’s different. It’s almost as if something…or someone is behind them, pulling the strings and making decisions for them.
And Maggie is having strange visions that only she can see, leaving Caleb helpless to help her. But when her visions start to warn her that their daughter, Ava, will one day be in danger, they’ll do anything it takes to find out what’s going on and how to stop it, even paying a visit to a previous Visionary.
Maggie and Caleb must find out who or what is behind it all and stop them before Maggie is one vision too late.
As a huge fan of the Significance series, I was thrilled that Shelly Crane was writing this novella, and then would be writing another book about Maggie and Caleb's daughter. In Consequence, we get to see Caleb and Maggie several years down the road from where Independence left off. Maggie is still the Visionary and Caleb is still the Champion. And little Ava and Rodney, their children, are by their side. But here, we get to see Maggie in her element, and get an idea of how things have continued with the Virtuoso since those early days when Caleb and Maggie were first together, as well as how they will handle a new and unexpected vision.
Though this novella is a quick read, it still manages to give us just the right amount of suspense for what is going on in the Virtuoso community, sweetness when it comes to Caleb and Maggie and their kids, family with some quality glimpses of other characters we love (especially Gran, Kyle, and Lynne), and the continuing romance between Caleb and Maggie, their love constant and abounding. I loved getting wrapped up into this world again, if only for the brevity of these pages. But we also get a glimpse of things to come with Undeniably Chosen, the next book, and some background to the story, that wasn't part of the previously released first two chapters (which are also at the end of this novella). To say I'm excited about Undeniably Chosen would be an major understatement.
If you are a fan of this series, want to read more about Caleb and Maggie, and want to get more insight into the background of what is going on with the Virtuoso community before Undeniably Chosen, then I would recommend this novella to you. I fell in love with Maggie and Caleb all over again.
