Delaney Hagen’s power to control lightning is unique, even among witches. That uniqueness has caused her to run and hide from her kind - and the other supernatural beings in the world. Finally, after years of running, she feels safe enough to settle down. But her life’s calm is completely destroyed when her best friend is murdered.
Delaney teams up with the mysterious and sexy Reid Jamison to figure out just what is going down in her world. Delaney will have to make a choice between her life and love. Will she be the product of a prophecy or will her fate be changed?
Reid Jamison knew this case wouldn’t be easy. But, with the money the Coven was throwing at him, how could he say no? When he met Delaney Hagen, his whole world began to unravel. Faced with a prophecy, murders, love and betrayal, will Reid be able to hang on to this new world? Or will it slip away?
Today is a very special day. it’s release day for Emily Cyr (pronounced “seer”). Her book, “The Lightning Prophecy” is her first novel, but definitely not her last. I believe Emily is an author with staying power. Her characters are solid, her ideas are fresh, and her writing itself is fun to read. I’ve spoken to Emily recently and she told me a little bit about what we have to look forward to from her, and let me just say that I can’t wait! Emily Cyr is definitely an author to keep an eye on!
And by the way, The Lightning Prophecy is on sale for only 99¢, but this price won’t last long, so get it while you can!

You take a chance when you read a first book by a new author. It could be amazing, so bad you want to claw your eyes out, or somewhere in between. Lucky for me, The Lightning Prophecy was awesome.
For a first book, The Lightning Prophecy is very well written, the editor/proofreader has done a great job of catching any typo’s or general mistakes. I enjoyed the overall tone and lightness of the story. When I say lightness, I am referring to the character’s personalities. There are pretty bad things that happen throughout the book, but I don’t feel like The Lightning Prophecy could be mistaken for a dark fantasy. Someone is killing witches and when someone close to Delaney is found murdered she takes it upon herself to try to solve the mystery herself. The Coven has hired a werewolf named Reid to find the killer, but what is being left out of the story he is being told?
Emily Cyr has created a group of characters that are easy to relate to, have interesting personalities, and unique abilities. Each character is nicely developed and the reader is given enough of the character history to develop an interest in who they are, but not so much it doesn’t leave anything for us to learn in the future.
Personally, I loved this author’s writing style. Her characters tend to talk to themselves to a degree, but I think their internal dialog is important to the development of the story and showing us who they really are.
Delaney is freaking HILARIOUS. Her sense of humor is far too much like mine, so I can definitely relate to that part of her personality. She’s sarcastic and just plain wrong. Just like me! Reid’s sense of humor fits right in. I think that must be why they get along so well. I think the ability to laugh is important for any relationship. There are other characters in this book, but the one other that I feel I MUST mention is Troy. Talk about a Queen! He’s hilarious and very comfortable in his femininity. He cracks me up.
The Lightning Prophecy has a good amount of sexual tension, and the sexy scenes are really steamy. Emily Cyr’s first sex scene was great, I can only imagine how amazing they will be in the future!
I recommend this book to pretty much anyone who likes books about witches with a little bit of mystery thrown in to keep you on your toes! This a great book and I absolutely can’t wait to see how this author continues to grow as her writes more and more books!
