Supernatural Smack Down: Jennifer Greyson’s Evy Rivera


Evy Rivera

Name: Evy Rivera

Book Series: Lightning Rider Alterations

Job: Custom Bike Builder/ Lightning Rider (time traveller for the uninitiated)

Height: 5′ 2″

Weight: None of your damn business

Hair Color: Dark Brown

Eye Color: Brown

From (Location): Salt Lake City, Utah

Significant Other: I guess Constantine, but he’s 2000 years in my past

Signature Move: Toss-up between launching lightning balls at my enemy or swinging lightning whips. Depends on my mood.

Kill Highlights: I can place myself in any moment in time, including an enemies bed while they sleep. Then I’m gone. Just like a whisper.

Enemies: Anyone with a past. Lately Ilif Rotiart, the guy posing as my mentor

Favorite Pastime: Used to be building bikes, now it’s hanging out in ancient Spain throwing lightning around

Other Facts: I come from a long line of time travelers, so altering history is in my genes. Not a chance I’m going to lose this Smackdown.


Hey, so I’m Evy Rivera. Most everyone around town knows me as the custom bike builder–well, they used to anyway, before all this lightning and time traveling got in the way of building rides. That’s why I entered this smackdown–it’s tough to find a place to throw lightning around in present day. I’ve recently been spending time in ancient Spain, and those warriors don’t care what my weapon is, as long as I bring one. Figured these other chicks in the smackdown probably feel the same.

But they probably also think they have a chance of winning. I’ve got news for them . . . no one beats a time traveller. No one. See, not only do I have these badass lightning whips I can control, but I can also pop into the match anywhere I need for the win. Last week I killed one of Spain’s most notorious legends. Slit his throat with a knife of lightning. Arced right into his tent while he was sleeping. Not a single one of his guards the wiser. So if these chicks think I won’t do whatever it takes to win, well, they don’t know me very well.

The Roman warrior who trained me taught me to leave it all on the field.

I’m one hell of a student.



About Jennifer:

From the moment she decided on a degree in Equestrian Studies, Jen Greyson’s life has been one unscripted adventure after another. Leaving the cowboy state of Wyoming to train show horses in France, Switzerland, and Germany, she’s lived life without much of a plan, but always a book in her suitcase. Now a wife and mom to two young boys, she relies on her adventurous, passionate characters to be the risk- takers.

Jen also writes university courses and corporate training material when she’s not enjoying the wilds of the west via wakeboard or snowmobile. Her new adult fantasy, Lightning Rider, is available everywhere on May 31.

About this Book:

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 weapon, through more errors than trials. With a relationship as explosive as their late-night training sessions, Evy and Constantine battle their push-pull relationship while trying to ignore the two-thousand-year difference in their birthdates.

Ilif Rotiart, her quasi-mentor, is appalled at Evy’s skill. He would prefer to train her father and keep Evy on the sidelines—where women belong. Evy has a feeling Ilif is keeping something from them, but she must play nice until she uncovers the truth. And if he’s lying, it will be the worst day of his four-hundred-year life.

Penya 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 agenda…and 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 late?

    I find this series really fascinating. This is why I am glad I stumbled upon blogs a few years ago. Without them, I would never find these amazing new authors.

    The concept behind this story is quite fresh and original. From what little I’ve read, Lightning Rider looks to be one helluva ride!
