When Lightning Strikes is the second book in the Credence Curse Saga, a series of adventure-packed shifter romance tales. If you like dark magic, powerful women, steamy love scenes, heart-pounding romance, and piles of sexy shifter secrets, then you'll love the latest romp from author Sedona Venez.

First of all, I read the first book of the Credence Curse series’ age ago.  So, I don’t really remember what happened in the first book, but the main storyline does continue from book one.  It would be best to read the first book before reading When Lightning Strikes.

Lighting is half-witch, half-fae with the power of empathy, because of her power she has trouble keeping close relationships with people.  When she was younger, her power actually gotten her in serious trouble.  Not only that being a Credence, she is also cursed.  Thus, she has no plan to establish an intimate relationship with another man.

So the story continues with the missing client’s list, a dead reporter, a dead employee, and dead clients on the rise.  Something is not quite right here, which is an underestimate.  While trying to find the person responsible for stealing the client’s list, someone is out there killing the Others and stealing their organs.  Meanwhile, Ryker is trying to find the people responsible for the murdering, before the peace treaty becomes too late to save.

->in this book we learn the truth behind the Credence curse, and the identity of Lighting’s father.  Yeah, he is still alive.

Reading about Lighting and Ryker can be frustrated sometimes, I have to be honest, I did have a hard time to connect with L&R.  Ryker tend to run hot and cold, at the beginning he flirt and clearly express his attraction for Lighting, but the next thing you know he is acting all cold and distant for no good reasons at all.  At the same time Ryker gets all possessive when his packmates show interest in Lighting.  While Lighting is moody throughout the book, she is also quite arrogant and to be blunt she can be
bitchy sometimes.

Although L&R’s chemistry are out of control, but if you want to read about the sexy time, you will have to wait till the very end of the book.

->we learn the truth about Credence curse, what Lighting’s power really means (just briefly ), and the Shadow’s intend for to use Lighting to control the Others (also briefly).

->anyone else think is weird that Lighting’s cousin’s name is Reason??
->I want to learn more about Ryker’s power and such!
