Spark by K.C. Stewart

Note to self: when you see a dragon run the other way.

Watching two dragons brawl it out in the middle of Philly wasn't something Hailey Holloway had thought she'd see when she woke up that morning. It was the day that she replayed in her head over and over, the day that landed her in the mess she was in now. Because on that day, Hailey had unintentionally invited the soul of one of those dragons into her own for safe keeping. But this was his eviction notice. She wanted him out of her head. Now.

Dacea was supposed to be dead but being best friends with a witch had its advantages. Now he just had to find a way out of this human. As leader of the red dragon sept, Dacea didn't have time to babysit a woman who thought she was going insane. His enemies would eventually catch on and find out he wasn't six feet under. They were going to have to work together to get out of this, but he'd have to convince her he was real first.

You know that anticipation of a new book, new author, new series? Am I going to like it, am I going to be sad, mad, angry or just not care? Spark, the first of the Hailey Holloway Series had me from page one, not carefully landing into the story, but plunged ungracefully and loving every page of funny, snarky attitude as we are invited into the truly overcrowded mind of Hailey Holloway, who already mentally talks to herself! Two men with unusual eyes, wait, two dragons, wait, two men again, no one dragon and one man, battling it out, one human young woman already having a weird day, getting caught up in the madness and figuring it’s just the way her life rolls? Even when one of the dragon/men lies battered and dying, she is trying to give him comfort, all thoughts of her own safety forgotten, or at least put aside, and then, it happens, as he lay dying, his soul or essence seeps into Hailey’s body and she is now sharing her mind with another; and the sparks begin to fly! Are you ready for attitude, snark, snarls and a woman with her own bite, a heart of gold and a talent for being in the wrong place at the right time? Meet Hailey and Dak, who, stuck in one body, take to battling with words, volleying back and forth like a ping pong ball inside Hailey’s head. Meanwhile, another dragon who was out to kill Dak is on the hunt for Hailey, but why? Just to get to Dak? Is there a two for one special on death in Hailey’s new world? What is the age old war between Silas and Dak about? How is Hailey now so important to each of them? Sound a little crazy? Sound like a lot of fun? Sound a little hot? Where there are dragons, there is smoke and fire. Where there is Hailey, there is humor, tension and too many questions to answer! One thing for sure, if you ever need a crazy-good read, light on seriousness, heavy on great dialogue and fascinating action, not to mention the twists, oh my, the twists…you may need a little Dramamine just to follow Hailey’s antics! Thank you K.C. Stewart for your fresh and fun look at paranormal romance as it whips by at breakneck speed! This author can write, set the stage, the mood and leave me begging for an encore or two! Yep, this is truly a gem, all bright and shiny!

I received a copy of this book in exchange for an honest review. “Spark” was a good book.  It was well-written and easy-to-read.  The author does a great job of building the world of the paranormal.  We had dragons, witches, muses, and even bigfoot is real in this world.  I liked the encyclopedia of paranormal creatures that Hailey read to learn more about this new world.  I liked Hailey.  She made me chuckle throughout the book.  I loved the one-sided conversations she had with Dacea.  I hated Hailey’s family.  I also hated the way Hailey let everyone treat her like crap.  I did feel that she needed to stand up for herself more and that she did grow as a person with Dak in her mind.  I hated that she believed her parents at the end and doubted her own memories. Dacea, Dak, made my heart hurt.  I didn’t like the way he instantly rejected Hailey.  She’s his mate, he’s supposed to love her and want her with him always.  I understood his reluctance to take a mate because of his past, but it still made me want to cry.  I did find it gratifying that he didn’t like it when Hailey shut him out and started calling him Dacea rather than the nickname she gave him, Dak.  I really liked that part. Lia, the muse, and Darby, the witch, had me laughing out loud.  They added a great element of humor to “Spark”.  They kept the tone of the book lighthearted. Overall, this was a good book and I’d like to see where the author takes this series. 4-Bombs Reviewed by Tracy

~DAZED & CONFUSED~ Spark is nothing like the title for the only thing I would do is if I physically had a copy, I would burn it. This could be a good story if I didn't run into so many road blocks that had me move away from what I just read. I felt the story was rushed and had to go back to see how one part related to another. While I can look pass the grammar, lots of them, the story did not pull me in and I only felt emotions for the book at the end. Hailey had a lot of funny and sassy comebacks. But I had a hard time figuring out if she was a teenager or an adult. The hottie Drak was a nottie and Silas was the only really likable character out of the book. I hope this being the first book will not reflect on the rest of the series to come. I liked the idea of the story, but this one just felt like it was rushed. I wish K. C. Stewart luck with her other books for the good writer I know her to be.

I'm a huge fan of fantasy books however usually not ones that take place in the present because they are never done right in my opinion. From the get go I was drawn in and could not stop reading. Every page turn was a squeak of anticipation and I was getting just as frustrated as some of the characters, even more so at times! I adore dragons and did not know a thing about the book until I started to read it, which I've never done before. So I'm very very happy to have read this book and will be reading it over and over again ^^

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? Confusing and maybe I just missed how it was explained. Then there’s the missing person/arrest issue. That wouldn’t happen in UK and I’m sure there’s nowhere where it would happen...but if you can accept story aberrations, sort of writers artistic licence such as these you’ll find this a fun read. Most of the time Dak was just in Hailey's head – or swapping bodies with her briefly – so there wasn’t the conventional opportunity for a romance to develop, and I missed that. Never the less I’m looking forward to book two, seeing how they react as two separate people, and what the ex will get up to! She sounds like one I love, a real Harpy – in more ways that one! Stars: three. A fun read but confusing at times, and I think book two will be a better read. ARC supplied by Book Enthusiast Promotions and publisher

Wow!!! I know that sounds cliché, but WOW!!! This is the first book in the Hailey Holloway series. I can not wait for the next one. This book made me laugh out loud and ugly face cry. Only great authors can tap into those emotions and make you feel what the character is feeling. You, Ms. Stewart, have done that for me. This book has got everything from the unlikely heroine to the wickedly evil villain. I found a lot of myself in Hailey. She was a very relatable character. She's that girl that doesn't really fit in and keeps her emotions locked inside while people tend to steam roll over her. She grows immensely as a person. I enjoyed seeing the change from a repressed wall flower to brave heroine. Let us not forget that sexy dragon that's trapped inside her head. I know. Sounds crazy, right? You'll find out how he got there, and what it's going to take to remover him from her head and return him to the normal King of the Red Dragons. I also enjoyed seeing the change in Dacea, or 'Dak,' as Hailey calls him. Even though Hailey is fated to be his Mate, he thinks he needs to separate from her and get as far away as possible, as fast as he can. It's the only way to keep her safe and to guard his shattered heart from losing someone he might care for. How's that working for you, Dak? I must mention Darby, the witch, and Lia, goddess and muse. They are the two other lovely ladies that are accomplices in trying and take down the wicked Silas. He would be the nasty Green Dragon, set out to take control of all four Sects of dragons and keep all of Dacea dead, not just his body. I know it all sounds bonkers, but this is one crazy train you will want to hop on and and buckle yourself in for the ride. I was up all night reading this until my eyelids would not stay open any longer. Set aside a good chunk of time when you pick up this book, as you will not want to put this down.

Dragons, witches, muses...it's a fantasy lovers fantasy. Hailey Holloway and new author K.C. Stewart are on their way to keeping us wondering what comes next in this mysterious and often dark world of imagination. Or is it real?

Having never read an urban fantasy book before I can say I'm hooked!  It was a great balance of reality and  fantasy.  Can that person you just walked passed be something else underneath? hmmmmm makes one think!  K.C. Stewart has a great gift and I'm glad she is sharing it with everyone else?  Waiting rather impatiently for the next book!

 This story is amazing. I love dragons of any kind and I love 'magical' books. The characters in this story have great chemistry and connectivity that you feel like you know them persinonally. I believe that the story it well written and I would change very little. I am waiting patiently (ok not really) for the next book to see what happens.

Spark is a fast paced book that changes my view of dragons-- in a fantastic way!  K.C. has a gift for writing! I did not want to put this book down when life's realities such as sleep and going to work interrupted my reading of this book. I can not wait to read the next book in the series!
