I received this book for free from YA Bound Book Tours in exchange for an honest review. This does not affect my opinion of the book or the content of my review.


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.

Talia Stanley is living an anonymous life in New York city. She is in hiding from her very dangerous past. There are others like her that are looking for her and she does not want to be found. She lives a life of isolation until she helps save Mason Rathbone. He brings her out of hiding which in turn opens her up to being found by other of hher race called Luminarys.  Can Talia save Mason from perilous danger that her race brings to others?

In ” an Oyster Shell – A provocative paranormal romance that is well worth the read.

The Pearls – The premise of this book was really exciting. An ancient race with special gifts like being able to create lightning. I like how this author used mythology to be a point of reference for this race. It was just a fun idea that was well executed.

There were multiple POV’s. I was a little nervous at first because it made the story feel disjointed. As you kept reading, the multiple POV’s started to make sense and became very necessary to tell the whole story.

The characters were well developed. Every character including the supporting characters had something to offer to the storyline. I really enjoyed the variety of characters.

The setting was enjoyable. I always enjoy a story set in New York, but it was also set in an ancient Island somewhere near Greece I believe… No matter where the characters were the setting was well described.

The Sand – Though it worked in the end, the multiple POV’s were confusing at first.
