I received a complimentary copy of Spark from Love to Read Love To Write Publishing, but the opinions stated are all my own.
Brenna is your average 21st Century teen–her favorite shoes are Chucks, she’s always on the search for waffles, and she tosses around adolescent-attitude like it’s confetti–until she’s drawn into a hidden world she never knew existed! Once in Linneah, we are introduced to a cast of characters that will keep you on your toes! From faithful griffins to questionable royal figures, Brenna must learn to navigate a new culture and find her purpose in this unfamiliar alternity. Baldwin (the hottie!) is always a source of attraction (and tension) and she can’t decide if his presence on the quest for the Veil hinders or helps. Hackman’s twists and turns within the story–and a villain with a secret you won’t see coming!–will keep you glued to the book. And wait until you meet Anna! She’s sure to become a favorite character for all!
Hackman is particularly gifted with setting and description. I found myself wanting to go back and re-read passages just to allow the scenery to really sink in. This made it easy to get lost in the world of Linneah and truly become a part of the alternity right along with Brenna! The comic relief that comes with the crash of her two realities is in perfect balance with the action and adventure she faces while on her seemingly impossible quest to save Linneah.
The parallels between the Christian faith and that of Elyon in Linneah shine through and are a basic reminder of the important things in our own relationship with God–we are each unique and have a part to play in our world; and no matter what bad decisions we make, God is always forgiving and longs to be united with us as His children. Strong attributes such as forgiveness and grace are evident throughout.
Spark is Book One in The Firebrand Chronicles and is a clean, YA fantasy. This novel would make a great addition for any Christian library to go alongside classics like “The Hobbit” and “The Chronicles of Narnia.”
The Christian themes in the story are pretty straightforward without being preachy. Brenna faces choices surrounding a prophecy which seems to indicate that she’ll play a major role in the land of Linneah, a role she is more than a little hesitant to accept. As she struggles with how to embrace her destiny, she finds great allies and keeps readers entertained with her spunky observations and longing for ordinary breakfast food. I enjoyed Spark and found it to be a pretty quick read.
Note: I received a free copy of this book in exchange for my honest review.
