Review: The Lightning Luminary by RS McCoy

Welcome to my stop on the blog tour for the release of The Lightning Luminary by R S McCoy. Below you will find the synopsis and all the details about this book along with my review. I received an ARC of the book in exchange for my honest review.

The Lightning Luminary
R.S. McCoy
Genre: Paranormal Romance/Urban Fantasy
Release date: April 26th 2016

Summary from Goodreads: 

 Talia Stanley may look like the typical wealthy New Yorker, but she's hidden her secrets for more than a thousand years. One of the last surviving members of an ancient race called Luminaries, Talia has suppressed her ability to control lightning in exchange for safety. 

And for generations it worked. Talia's hermit lifestyle protected her from strong Luminaries that want her power. All that changed the day Mason Rathbone walked into her life.

A good-looking artist, Mason is just the guy to get Talia out of her penthouse apartment and show her what it means to live again. But just as she starts to get comfortable, Talia gets sucked right back into her vicious past.

A new paranormal romance novel by RS McCoy, author of the Sparks Saga.

 This was a beautiful story interwoven with Greek mythology. There is so much going on in the book that it needs to be devoured slowly to take everything in. The story starts off by introducing the main character Talia. However, it quickly introduces you to a slew of other characters that can be difficult to keep track of. We don't see Talia again until nearly a quarter of the way into the book. That worried me some. However, each time we were taken back to a character, we were given just enough of a clue to remind us who this character was. Soon I was able to remember who everyone was. But I'm still full of questions about relationships, history of the characters, and much more. The book ends without a full resolution. However, you can see where the next story will go. This is the only reason I'll forgive the author for the cliffhanger. 

If you like mythology, I definitely recommend this book! I may have to reread it and take some notes before tackling book 2.
