***Trigger Warning***
There are some things in this book that may prove to be a trigger for some readers (themes include abuse and loss). Remember, this is a story about change and growth. One cannot grow stronger without tribulations.

When Delaney Hagen died, she really thought she would stay dead. Her whole reality was shattered when she learned of a prophecy that foretold not only of her death, but that she, a lightning Witch, would rise as a werewolf. She is being held against her will by Mitch, the werewolf who killed her. He is hell bent on using her in every way. She must get away from him and rescue the love of her life, Reid. But, with every passing moment she is slowly breaking.

Reid Jamison saw the woman he loved die and there was nothing he could do to stop it. Now, he’s sitting in a prison owned by Mitch, the monster who killed her. Reid must find a way not only to get out, but to save Delaney. He has little time to get to her.

Both Delaney and Reid must get to one another before it’s too late. Not only are they facing the challenges of Mitch, but there is a new pressing threat from the Coven of Witches. Will everything come together in time or will it fall apart?

The Lightning Legacy picks up right after The Lightning Prophecy. This book is seriously emotional. The highs are super high, and the lows are so freaking low. But good god are they good. Sometimes I can’t decide if this author loves her characters or absolutely hates them!


As we saw in The Lightning Prophecy, the characters here have a sense of humor that help them seem like real people instead of just one dimensional characters. They are multifaceted and unique in their own special ways (especially Troy).


There is plenty of action and excitement in The Lightning Legacy. Delaney is one hell of a fighter, that’s for sure! The excitement rarely stops and I would probably drop dead of exhaustion if I were in Delaney’s shoes!


The ideas of where the witches and werewolves come from originally is explained in a way that is easy to understand and plausible within the world of make believe and is expanded upon further in this book. And the ending, omg the ending made me crazy! I’m dying to find out what happens next!


Be warned though, this book is NOT for the faint of heart. There are serious triggers in this book that may not be appropriate for sensitive readers. The traumatic experiences are not gone into detail, but enough details are given to let the reader know something bad has happened and there is quite a bit of violence.


I really loved this book from start to finish. I am eager to read more about these characters and find out what happens with/to Delaney and her group in the next book, and I can’t wait to see what else Troy gets himself into!
