Book Description

Copywriter by day, nerd by night, Hailey Holloway is living the post college dream. Her life may not be flashy and exciting but it’s enough for her. After a late night at work, Hailey stumbles upon two dragons brawling in the middle of Philadelphia. In an act of kindness and lapse of sanity, she comforts the dragon who was left behind to die. In doing so she inadvertently invited the soul of Dacea into herself for safe keeping. Hailey just wants to live her life as simply and quietly as possible but with the voice of a disembodied dragon in her head, she has little hope of achieving her goal.

Dacea will do anything to be free of Hailey, a human who is moments from checking herself into a psychiatric ward. He is grateful to be alive, but at what cost to his sanity? The dragon world is in upheaval. Green is at war with Red, and he is of no use to anyone while stuck with Hailey.

The solution to their problem is not without its risks. But just how far will Hailey go to be free of the dragon?

5.0 out of 5 stars I couldn't put it down. April 24, 2014
Format:Kindle Edition
I stayed up till three a.m. just unable to stop in the middle. Then when I woke up I just had to keep going. I had tot know what happened. I don't regret it at all. A wonderfully original story, with an ending that tore me up a bit. This is a great read. The characters were engaging and made me really want to know more about each one of them. I found myself tearing up a bit when the walls came down for Hailey, and I was super glad to watch her growth throughout the book. I'm now off to stalk K.C. for the next one ;) lol jk!

4.0 out of 5 stars A for Effort! April 15, 2014
By Wendy M

Poor Hailey Holloway is trying to convince herself she isn't crazy...and the decidedly male voice in her head isn't helping!

I enjoyed this debut novel from new author K.C. Stewart. Hailey finds her courage through out this book, and it is good to see. References to LOTR, everyone's favorite Time Lord, and even the Magic School Bus make this a fun, adventurous read. The ending doesn't leaving you hanging (thankfully), but still leaves you wondering what happens next, because, HELLO, still a bad guy running around!

Per the author, this book is currently in re-edits, so my initial issue with the editing is already being fixed. With that being said, I definitely would suggest this book. It is a good afternoon by the fire, or even day at the beach, type of read. I would recommend waiting until the edits are complete, though, so you can fully enjoy the story. I'm looking forward to the next installment!

5.0 out of 5 stars great start for a dragon series! October 5, 2014
Format:Kindle Edition
I never know what I’m going to get when I pick up a new book by an author I haven’t read. Well this one sealed the deal, I’m a fan!!! A big one :) This is the first book of the series, and holy HAWT fire breathing dragons, I’m all in! I am quite impressed with this book and it’s plot and great characters. And let me say outright, just jump into book two asap, because you’ll love book one so much!

Hailey is a normal everyday girl. She has a normal job, some really crappy parents, and funny best friend and co-worker. And then she sees a man being attacked in the park. And BOOM, in her trying to help, she has somehow locked a dragon dude’s soul into hers. Well, now she’s stuck with him talking in her mind, and trying to find a way to get him out. She cracked me up. She would fight with him, in her head, then forget and talk out loud. It was definitely a crazy ride. And then, she has to keep a watch because the dragon who did this to him still wants to kill him, even if it means killing her. Yeah, there’s a lot of crazy happening all at once. Her only flaw, she really needs to learn to stand up for herself, which she eventually does, but confrontation shouldn’t be so hard.

Now Dak, aka Dacea, he’s the former king of the red dragons, which is significant. He’s got crazy friends that you’ll meet, like Darby, the witch. And the Lia the muse pops up. Yeah, it’s awesome. But at first, he’s a little condescending. He doesn’t understand the modern world, he’s quite old. And in the process, he changes Hailey, and she changes him. Plus, Dak has to realize that he isn’t the only one he has to worry about now, he’s stuck in Hailey, so she’s just as important, if not more so, than himself and boy did he get a couple of crash courses with some whip lash!

Spark, (The Hailey Holloway Series), K C Stewart
Review from jeannie zelos book reviews
I enjoyed this novel but it was far lighter in content and plot than I’d expected – my mistake I’m sure of course. I’d read the sample of the second book which sounds great fun, and requested this one without checking. As always though I’m sure book two will read better as I know what’s gone before. Anyway Dacea the red dragon is stuck – inside Hailey, and the search is on to restore him. Silas the green dragon is behind many dragon murders recently and Dacea as dragon royalty is in his sights. Hailey was simply in the wrong place at the wrong time – or maybe as she saved Dacea’s life – the right place. I love the quirky conversations the duo have, bickering and sharing jokes. What I had a problem with was the hot – cold, should they – shouldn’t they reactions they both had over the Mate aspect. I liked Darcy and Lia, two worthy and useful sidekicks.
I had a problem with some issues, such as the dragon mates dying together, when one dies so does the other...then how come are Lia and Darcy still alive after their dragons deaths. I’d guessed that was because they were Witch and Muse, so escape the death bonds...but then later when talking about Silas’ background and how his sister was killed within hours of her birth as she wasn’t a dragon we learn that females are never dragons – so who does die..maybe just human mates? ( and I felt for Silas in a way, how much of that harsh upbringing made him the sadistic, jealous, murdering person he became? He seems to have begun as a normal child.) I didn’t really understand what happened in the Dacea and Darcy’s husband issue ( forgot his name..Lex? ) There seems to have been a time when Dacea was in him, much as he is in Hailey, but then was separate again?

Hailey Holloway stumbles upon two dragons one night. Before she realizes it she invited the soul of one into her. That soul was a red dragon named Dacea. She wakes up the next morning realizing that she can hear the dragon’s voice inside of her head. She believes herself to be crazy because of the voice.
Once I picked up the book I had a hard time putting it down. The characters and the supernatural world that was created was fantastic and put together very well. The plot was well decided and well followed throughout the story. The author helps you to picture everything as you read the book. As you go into the book you learn more of the supernatural world. It helps you to learn the history and about each individual dragon by the colors that a dragon has. It helps you to understand the characters and book as you continue to read it. I absolutely loved all the characters and enjoyed how the characters developed with the story.
One part that I really enjoyed was the banters between Hailey and Dacea. They made it pretty funny throughout the story. It helped you to experience the feelings they were going through. This book also had a lot of action in it.
I enjoyed the outcome of the story. It also leaves you wanting more of these characters. I look forward to the next book coming out to see what happens with them. If you like supernatural romance then you should really check this book out.
