I’m glad I signed up for this tour because I loved the story of Colby and Theo and the idea of traveling in a blink of an eye. It’s a lovely story. I’ve included information about the book after the jump. There’s also a giveaway at the end of this post.
I have not read a paranormal book in a long time and it’s refreshing to be sucked into a fictional world like this one, ESPECIALLY since it’s a clean book. It doesn’t have sex in the story.
Lightning Kissed has a “Jumper” feel to it. Lucents can travel to any place as long as they have an exact idea where to go. Like in the movie, pictures help visualize where they will end up. Wouldn’t it be cool to have a power like that? You can go anywhere you want without having to take a plane or wait hours to get there. I for one would enjoy seeing and spending time in a different place every day. It’s like the ultimate backpacker/traveler’s dream!
The Lucent gene is passed on to the female offspring only. In very rare occasions, a male offspring will inherit the gene. Theo did. I guess this is where things get complicated? There are all these rules, as always, but our heroine does not respond well to authority. I bet you already have an idea where this is going. In a way, Colby does not exactly know what to do with Theo and his new found gifts.
The story was written well. It’s written in alternating views of Colby and Theo. It is imaginative and entertaining. Even though it ended the way it did, it gives my imagination more room for speculations about what’s going to happen next. I would recommend this because it’s an enjoyable read with lovable characters.
About the Author
Lila Felix is full of antics and stories. She refused to go to Kindergarten after the teacher made her take a nap on the first day of school. She staged her first protest in middle school. She almost flunked out of her first semester at Pepperdine University because she was enthralled with their library and frequently was locked in. Now her husband and three children have to put up with her rebel nature in Louisiana where her days are filled with cypress trees, crawfish, and of course her books and writing. She writes about the ordinary people who fall extraordinarily in wild, true love.

Great review, Nickle! This sounds like a fun read and unique, too. I also love dual POV – I find I really get to know the characters through different perspectives. Glad you liked it! 🙂
thanks Giselle ^_^
