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.
In this novel, luminaries are humans with supernatural abilities and extremely long life spans. Talia is a luminary in hiding from her husband, a man whose power and invulnerability has turned him into a tyrant. While hiding, she meets and falls in love with a mere mortal, Mason. Eventually her past catches up to her and she and Mason must face it together.
I really liked the idea of ancient super humans living among us and most of them hiding from an evil one who cannot be killed. It had a great romance too and I immediately found both Talia and Mason to be very likeable.
Many of the secondary characters were a bit underdeveloped and thus I didn’t care much about them or their fate. However, there were five characters that were very well developed and really drove the story forward.
It had a very good page-turner quality for me and I finished it within a few days of starting it. I’m really looking forward to the next book.
