Sparks Book Title – Sparks
Author – RS McCoy
Publisher – RS McCoy
ISBN/ASIN - 1495970353
Genre –Fantasy


Myxini School for Children specializes in training young men and women who have powerful Sparks. Strikers are taught to manipulate fire. Trackers learn to find animals in the most formidable terrains. Handlers are instructed in communication with large predators. But forty years have passed since the last time they had a Reader – a student with the ability to read minds.
When Lark Davies enrolls at Myxini, he knows there aren’t many like him, but he doesn’t realize just how rare his abilities really are. He thinks nothing of being asked to keep his Spark a secret; after all, he can barely control it. Thoughts and emotions flood unbidden into his mind until he can scarcely walk or hold a conversation. But just when he needs it most, his ability fails him.
Lark meets Khea, a small frightened girl who mysteriously incites his protective nature. He has no explanation for the curious strength of their relationship, and it doesn’t help that she is one of the few people in the world whose thoughts can’t be read. As he struggles to get to the root of their unique bond, Lark begins to unravel more power than even his mentor expected, but in the process makes himself a target to political leaders eager to take control.

Review Divider

This book started out a little slow, but it was interesting nonetheless. A boy named Lark is sold by his father for money so he can buy the cure for his dying wife. Lark is not an ordinary boy, he can read minds and finds out that he's going to a better place, a school to learn to control his "spark" and his mother won't die. So Lark unselfishly makes the decision to go. Along the way, he meets up with new friends, a sometimes-sadistic mentor, and the love of his life. This book is filled with love, betrayal, action, and so much more. I loved this book, some parts I was completely heartbroken by (so be forewarned). I definitely recommend this book to anyone!
