Description

Mia Price is a lightning addict. She's survived countless strikes, but her craving to connect to the energy in storms endangers her life and the lives of those around her. Los Angeles, where lightning rarely strikes, is one of the few places Mia feels safe from her addiction. But when an earthquake devastates the city, her haven is transformed into a minefield of chaos and danger. The beaches become massive tent cities. Downtown is a crumbling wasteland, where a traveling party moves to a different empty building each night, the revelers drawn to the destruction by a force they cannot deny. Two warring cults rise to power, and both see Mia as the key to their opposing doomsday prophecies. They believe she has a connection to the freak electrical storm that caused the quake, and to the far more devastating storm that is yet to come. Mia wants to trust the enigmatic and alluring Jeremy when he promises to protect her, but she fears he isn't who he claims to be. In the end, the passion and power that brought them together could be their downfall. When the final disaster strikes, Mia must risk unleashing the full horror of her strength to save the people she loves, or lose everything.show more

Review quote

"This book certainly had me intrigued with its unique plot about lightning and its quasi-post apocalyptic setting... 'Struck' was a fascinating, action-packed read... [Mia was] certainly a strong, decisive character and it was easy to relate to her. The actual storyline was really refreshing and was not in the least bit predictable. I was dying to know more about the lightning and the odd powers Mia had yet to unleash... a promising start to a refreshing post-apocalyptic series." -- Farhana Chowdhury BookChowDownshow more
