About the Book

Colby Evans can leap from one country to the next in a heartbeat. She can see every sunset in every time zone in the same day. She can travel across the world in a flash. She defies gravity and physics with every breath she takes. She’s tested her abilities and found them limitless.
She is the lightning. She is Lucent. And nothing can stop her.
Except him.
Theodore Ramsey isn’t supposed to be able to flash like Colby. The power of travel is passed on from mother to daughter in their people. Except once in every hundred generations.
Theo is the one.
He can flash like Colby. And it makes him a target to their enemies and to himself. His abilities change everything he knows about life and throws his future into an uncertain tangent. In fact, the only thing certain in his life is the love he feels for Colby.
Their love defies time and space and has been the only constant thing in their lives since childhood. But even their infallible love will be stretched to its limits.
She will risk her life to protect him. But he will risk everything to protect them all.

There is not a lot of violence throughout the story but there is talk of the governing system capturing and testing (Torturing) the Lucents (and removing their powers).

Romance/Sensuality
3
There is a fair amount of romance between the teenagers. Lots of quite intense kissing, sometimes with some over the clothes groping but it never goes further than that. The teenagers do share a bed and there is reference to this having happened several times in the past but only for sleeping.
Drugs/Alcohol/Smoking
1
Mention of drug muling as an occupation and referrals to emails asking for 'confidential' transports which usually meant drugs or worse. Mention of Beer as an advert on an umbrella.

 

All supernatural types in the book:

Lucents (They have various gifts including the ability to travel like teleporting) Some are more powerful than others – and some can travel through time.)

Eidolon (a vary rare form of Lucent)

About the Author
Lila Felix

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.
