Full disclosure, I was provided an advance copy of this book by the author as part of his “A-Team” in exchange for an honest review.
Race Against Time
For those of you, like myself, who ended Hidden Spark about as cliff-hung as can be, “Dead Spark” jumps right back into the action and leaves no room to relax. With the zombie virus coursing through them both and still being relentlessly pursued by the Wyrmlings, Spark and Dancer must seek out the assistance of a person who may or may not be willing to oblige. Can this mysterious woman with a dark secret be the key to Spark’s salvation; or will the revelation of her mysterious origins be his ultimate undoing?
This book was wild! From the beginning to the end there was no amount of action, fighting, badass motorcycles and even comedy. But it’s not all fun and games as our favorite enforcer is soon to find out. Even with the help of his friends and family, he finds this to be probably one of the toughest things he’s had to endure for many years.
I literally blazed through Dead Spark in a about a day and in retrospect, I am left with a nagging feeling that Spark may not fully recover from this latest adventure. If you thought Spark was damaged after his trip to Tokyo, you are in for a shock with this one. Certain demons from his past were brought to light that will most likely have an influence on his world view going forward. And I’m not sure that’s going to be such a good thing. I just hope that we’re not left in the dark for too long before book 8. Still, this series continues to be a personal favorite of mine. I’ll be sad to see it end, but nothing can continue forever; not even immortal Hidden smartly dressed Dark Magic Enforcers.
