Lord of Lightning by Suzanne Forster
My rating: 3 of 5 stars
Book Blurb -
When a mysterious stranger arrives in Shady Trees, things go quickly awry: clocks stop, small children insist they’ve spotted UFOs, and the prim and proper schoolteacher begins indulging in abduction fantasies
One night in quiet, bucolic Shady Trees, two children witness a startling occurrence: A giant silver figure engulfed in green light emerges from the darkness before them, picks up a dead bird, and brings it back to life. The next day at school, Miss Lise Anderson hears her students buzzing about the sighting and dismisses it as a childish rumor. Then she encounters handsome geologist, Stephen Gage. Unable to ignore the electricity coursing between them, the buttoned-up Lise seeks out the stranger.
When two precious artifacts go missing from the town museum, locals accuse Gage. Lise emerges as his only advocate. Is her attraction to him clouding her judgment? After Gage arrives at her home unexpectedly during a storm, and takes her against her will to the hills, she realizes she’s begun a risky erotic game with a man as dangerous as he is desirable.
This ebook features an illustrated biography of Suzanne Forster including rare photos from the author’s personal collection.
Cover & Title - 3 out of 5
Favorite Line - "Well, if he decides to take another shot at impregnating this earth woman," Lise said sardonically, "I hope he doesn't know me out first."
Favorite Character - Lise
I must admit throughout almost the entire book i was intrigued but at the same time befuddled. Even though i have just finished the book i am still unsure of what i have just read. I have been left with many questions & few answers. I actually found the story quite gripping, maybe it was the constant feeling of disarray? I do not know what hooked me on the story but something did. It was a very strange book but i liked it.
I theme songed this book, Live - Lightning Crashes.. its fitting :)
