ABOUT THE BOOK
After she found her real father, life for Selah should have felt settled. But the horrors have just begun. In her broken world of toxic earth and tribal clashes, Selah must battle the forces of nature alongside those in the Mountain who are calling for her blood. Haunted by the pain of mounting losses, she forges on, seeking her lost family and uncovering new mysteries. But the ultimate betrayal of her own body may soon make her quest impossible as it becomes apparent that what has made her new could also drive her to a life of madness.
Selah Rishon found her father and believed she could live a happy normal life once more, but all is not what it seems. Her father, Glade has a few secrets he’s been hiding and now wishes to involve the ever so handsome Bodhi. The only problem is Glade despises Bodhi, and Bodhi has begun to loose his powers, do to the fact he begun Selah’s transition.
With Selah trying desperately to find her mom and younger brother, she finds herself with the question of what to do. Her dear friend and her brother plan to travel to the Mountain to unveil whats going on. They wish for her to go along, but what would Bodhi and Glade have to say. But then again they had just left for the Mountain themselves earlier that morning.
Soon both Selah and Bodhi along with friends, find danger in the craziest of ways. With some much going on around them, how will they ever save the people Selah holds most dear? And will it cost them everything even Selah’s life?
Lightening is book two in the Stone Braide Chronicles. This book was an amazing sequel to Thunder (book one). I have to say this series is one of my favorites. I love the action and adventure. This book shows what it truly means to have girl power. And boy do I have to say Selah sure has it. I want to see what happens, next cause I don’t know about you but I want to see what happens to Selah and Bodhi.
**Disclosure** This book was sent to me free of charge for my honest review from CFBA.
