Elemental (Elemental, #0.5) - Brigid Kemmerer 3.5

A nice little intro/backstory to Michael Merrick. Elemental is a prequel to Storm, which I actually read before reading this one. I enjoyed getting this glimpst of this younger Michael. It was sad to see him feeling alone and overwhelmed and I found myself rooting for this friendship between him and Emily...and then I remembered what comes after.
