Clean Teen Publishing is proud to present Lightning Sealed, the second installment of Lila Felix's The Lucent Series.

"No matter what his words conveyed, Theo would leave me soon. It was just a matter of time."
The Fray is calling Theo. Every day, the voices get louder. Every minute, he gets pulled closer. Every second, their love is tested. Their life is a constant question of who they can trust and who they can't.
Sanctum, Theo's brother and enemy, stalks them like a predator, waiting for his chance to pounce.
Theo will leave Colby soon to do what he, as the Eidolon, was born to do. He can't deny the yearning in his heart to go, but he can't find it in his heart to leave.
Colby will be left with a decision. She can wither like the mates of Eidolon before her or she can go after the Synod, the women who murdered her grandmother, while Theo is gone.
With Theo missing and Colby desperate, Sanctum is only too eager to fill in…

Interview With Lila:

Q: What inspired your Lucent series?

A cliché as it sounds, I had a dream about Colby. She was flashing between countries, telling me each time where she was going and chastising me that I couldn’t teleport like she could.

Q: When did you first realize you wanted to be a writer?

I realized I wanted to be a writer when there was a story in my heart that demanded to be told.

Q: How long does it usually take you to write a book?

Usually, I can complete a bare bones manuscript in six to eight weeks. It is raw and in desperate need of edits and beta readers, but the first draft is done.

Q: Do you have an interesting writing quirk? 

I don’t know if it is a quirk, but lately, I have to listen to non-music sounds when I’m writing. Listening to music while I’m writing doesn’t work for me anymore. I have to listen to rain or thunderstorms—not whales—whale sounds make me cry. No, seriously, they do. But in order to get into the mood to write, I have to listen to music. I’m kind of weird, now that I write it all out.

Q: What are your current projects?

Right now, I’m working on the third of the Lucent series. I’m also working on Hip Whip (Love and Skate #7) and a stand-alone called Meet Me Halfway.

Q: What authors have inspired you?

I’m inspired by Neil Gaiman, Connor Franta, Rebecca Ethington and Anne Eliot.

Q: Do you have any tips for aspiring writers?

Write, write, and write some more. Read, read, and then write some more. It is as simple and excruciating as that.

Q: Do you have anything you'd like to say to your fans?

I’m so grateful to my fans and anyone who takes a chance on reading my books. I would be nowhere without my readers and am eternally thankful.


Ari concurred. “It was strange, wasn’t it?”
Finally, my best friend joined the party.
“But that’s not why you called me here. You called me to see if I’ve been keeping company with someone who died over half a hundred years ago. Sorry, no corpses in my closet. Unless he’s a zombie. Double-eeew.”
I could play the ditsy blonde ‘til the cows came home.
“Did you see that episode of The Walking Dead where just the torso of that woman was crawling around? I almost threw up.”
Ari talking about The Walking Dead making her throw up was the closest thing to the truth this room had ever seen. She did throw up during every episode—but still was a loyal watcher.
“Dang it, Colby. You know what we are talking about! We mean Torrent.”
I loved driving people so mad that they gave up their own secret information.
“Torrent? Theo’s brother? He’s been gone since we were kids. You found him?”
I was aggravating myself at that point.
“Colby, I warn you. Any more of this mindless chatter and we will retaliate.”
“How? My mother is gone and you’ve already taken care of my grandmother. And Ari—I don’t even really like her.”
The anger could be seen gurgling in Regina’s eyes. It made the crap bubble brown where the white used to be.
“Has he traveled to the fray yet? Has he worried you with how long he was gone? Did you think you may have lost him forever? Did you think for once that his mission is more important than your love?”
“Wait!” Ari stood and I could see the wheels turning in her head. Every once in a while she got her act together.
“What?” I stood with her, thinking it was just another cooky distraction.
“The mate of the Eidolon falls under the jurisdiction of the Eidolon only. She doesn’t have to answer any of
your questions.”

My face flushed. She just let the bird out of the cage.

Lightning Kissed (The Lucent Series Book 1)

Colby Evans can leap from one country to the next in a heartbeat. She can see every sunset in every time zone in the same day. She can travel across the world in a flash. She defies gravity and physics with every breath she takes. She's tested her abilities and found them limitless.

She is the lightning. She is Lucent. And nothing can stop her.

Except him.

Theodore Ramsey isn't supposed to be able to flash like Colby. The power of travel is passed on from mother to daughter in their people. Except once in every hundred generations.

Theo is the one.

He can flash like Colby. And it makes him a target to their enemies and to himself. His abilities change everything he knows about life and throws his future into an uncertain tangent. In fact, the only thing certain in his life is the love he feels for Colby.

Their love defies time and space and has been the only constant thing in their lives since childhood. But even their infallible love will be stretched to its limits.

She will risk her life to protect him. But he will risk everything to protect them all.

About the Author

Lila Felix is full of antics and stories. She refused to go to Kindergarten after the teacher made her take a nap on the first day of school. She staged her first protest in middle school. She almost flunked out of her first semester at Pepperdine University because she was enthralled with their library and frequently was locked in. Now her husband and three children have to put up with her rebel nature in  Louisiana where her days are filled with cypress trees, crawfish, and of course her books and writing. She writes about the ordinary people who fall extraordinarily in wild, true love.
