This review is entirely spoiler free, even if you haven't read book one, Storm.
I can't even begin to fathom how awesome Spark was! The dreaded 'Sophomore Slump' passed right over Brigid Kemmerer's head, because Spark was absolutely stunning!
What I love so much about this series is that we get to see inside a different person's head in each book, and the POVs in this book were incredible - even better than Storm, dare I say! Gabriel (our lead character) was awesome. He has his personal demons and things that haunt him, but to see him overcome everything for a girl he's falling head over heels for, Layne... well, it was just brilliant. And Layne was excellent too! I loved her even more than I did Becca in Storm, just because she's totally not what you find every day in YA, and I adore that!
I thought Storm was good... Spark blew it out of the water! Or should I say extinguished it, since we're talking about fire in this book? These brothers who can control the elements are epic - each book takes a different focus on an element, and Spark takes a new direction with this series. I was on the edge of my seat and biting at my nails for the majority of the book - Kemmerer definitely isn't afraid to take risks and throw danger at our protagonist. Just another reason why this series is excellent!
Everything about Spark is great. The romance, the character development, the epic climatic, there is seriously not a single flaw with this book. If you're looking for some new and original supernatural goodness in your life, you're missing out if you haven't started this series!
Overall, Spark is a thrilling and climatic sequel, soaring with love and bursting with action. I never wanted these flames to be extinguished!
