excellent supernatural world did good research on the ancient Roman customs as well as how people lived during those times and gave complexity and depth to her characters both the main protagonists and the supporting castWhat didn t work for me so well was that Evy s motives weren t clear and that for some time it seemed as if she was agreeing to the alteration because of her attraction to Constantine instead of being convinced of the righteousness of her mission I appreciated her initial unwillingness to forgo her own ideals and morals but as the character grew the motivation for that

For Evy Rivera thunderstorms have always caused her physical pain but she's never known why When a record setting storm arrives on the same night her father finds ancient ancestral documents Evy is set aglow with mysterious tiny lightnings she can command Even worse she alerts some people in the universe who've been looking for her family for a very long time Thrown back into ancient Spain and tasked with killing a Spanish legend she must train alongside Constantine a sexy yet obstinate Roman warrior He teaches her how to wield her lightning as a wea Given that the central concept of time travel is so popular I had high expectations about Jen Greyson s The Lightning Rider which were not completely met While most time travel books television shows and movies come down on the idea that altering time is bad this book seems to be about altering time for the betterment of man and in some instances is kickass but in others less soThe basic story is that Evy Rivera is a member of a family who historically have been able to travel in time However the ability has been lost for a generation Evy and her father Victor stumble on family artifacts which they accidentally use to trigger their ability to time travelTheir activities lead to a visit from Ilif Rotiart a mysterious person of wealth who claims that he has been guiding the Rivera men as time travelers for hundreds of years Ilif claims that while he and others can travel only the Rivera men can use their abilities to alter time Ilif claims that he helps the Rivera men alter time Ilif claims the alterations always are designed to help the future and save people While he is willing to teach Victor to travel he is unwilling to teach Evy and is disrespectful to Evy as wellDiscontent to sit at home and not use her power Evy travels to 127 BC Spain where she meets Penya who also claims the ability to time travel Penya warns her of Ilif s motivations and gifts Evy with a prophetic scroll about the powers of a female rider Evy also meets Gaius Titus Pomponius Constantine a Roman soldier who leads men and controls a fleetUltimately Evy will return to Spain Its only been a few hours for Evy in our time but 5 years has gone by in Spain There she will meet up with Constantine and Penya again It seems that Penya believes it is important for Evy to help Constantine kill Viriato Penya claims his death will help Spain Although Evy has super like powers Constantine is not amazed which is oddThe remainder of the book is about how Evy learns to use her power her relationship with Penya and Constantine the plan to kill Viriato and aid Constantine her growing distrust of Ilif and his motivations On the plus side Evy Rivera is a good character who must learn to control her lightning and deal with and live in 132 BC Spain In addition Evy s relationship with Constantine his sister and Penya is definitely a hightlight of the bookOn the other hand the first third of the novel is disjointed It is never clear how Victor is traveling to the past or even if he has the same abilities of his daughter While Ilif is distrustful we only get vague allusions to his motivations Also Penya enlists Evy in a plot to kill Viriato but Evy takes little time in the present to find out why its important or who Constantine is Finally I just did not like the odd touches to the story like Evy wearing a thong to ancient Spain It just was too much Monica Lewinsky like for me or that no one in Evy s family even notices changes to Victor s appearance another odd situationThis is a good debut The time travel aspects are cool and the novel really picks up in last two thirds Evy s time in ancient Spain and with Constantine is well worth reading Hopefully the next book will be on the same par for the whole book rather than just the last two thirds

Nya Sepadas claims she's Evy's rightful trainer and she has the prophecy to prove it Penya doesn't share Ilif's misogynistic attitude but she does have her own agendaand her own secrets Evy must sort through the lies and find the truth behind her family's time traveling past before the wrong history obliterates the future She’s spent her whole life fighting for her place Now as the first female lightning rider she'll dedicate her existence to fighting to save the world But will Evy learn to manage her lightning and find the truth before it's too la Such a boring book that could have been so much better The plot was pretty good a time traveler that uses the lightenig and whose power was family inherited but the explanations were so long and every time different that in the end the story was very poor and endet so fast that I was really disappointed Maybe the second book in this serie would be better because I appreciate Eve and CostantineUn libro veramente noioso che sarebbe potuto essere veramente migliore La trama non era male una viaggiatrice nel tempo che utilizza i fulmini e il cui potere si tramanda nella famiglia ma le spiegazioni erano cos lunghe ed ogni volta diverse che alla fine la storia era poca cosa e finisce talmente in fretta che sono rimasta basita Magari il secondo libro sar migliore perch mi piacevano Eva e CostantineTHANKS TO NETGALLEY AND THE WRITER S COFEE SHOP PUBLISHING HOUSE FOR THE PREVIEW
