“Everyone in the world has a Spark, a light inside that guides them, keeps them alive.”
Starting school is supposed to be a fun and exciting time for any new student. But for Lark, a skilled archer and fledgling mind-reader, it’s a creative form of torture. Locked in rooms and hallways with both friends and enemies, bombarded by the thoughts and feelings of his peers, Lark is a prisoner.
On a quest to master his Spark, Lark’s mentor–his one ally–is anything but helpful. What Lark fails to realize is the value of his rare ability, and just how far some are willing to go to have control of him.

This is a brilliant epic fantasy that grabs you from the start and refuses to let go throughout. It is an emotionally packed story that will keep you turning the pages, long after you should have put it down and gone to bed! The main characters of Lark, Khea and Micha are all fantastic and I loved all three of them for their varying abilities and differing personalities. I wasn't too sure about Avis to begin with, but before long, I was loving every scene he was in. As this book takes place over a number of years, you get to see each character's growth, trials, and tribulations as they grow. Brilliantly written, smoothly paced and with intense and vivid scenes, this is classic Fantasy brought to life. Highly recommended. *ps - I must add that there are some scenes that may just bring a tear to your eyes! Tissue warning, just in case!!* I received this book from the author in return for a fair and honest review. Merissa Archaeolibrarian - I Dig Good Books!
Overall Rating: 4 Rockin’ Stars RS McCoy’s book, Sparks, is an amazing novel about fantasy, love and loyalty. The story takes place in a fictitious world. A world where some of the people have sparks; a magical light inside them that guides the person to read minds, bend the elements, or talk to animals. Lark Davies from Lagadon, is a Reader. He contains the spark of sensing thoughts by being able to read thoughts. He is sent to the Myxini School for Children at fourteen summers. There he begins to develop his spark. In his journey to the school and during his training his thoughts are never far from the beautiful little girl that traveled with him, Khea, only twelve summers herself. However, as they both grow at the school, he finds himself unable to stop thinking of her, wanting to be with her, and needing to protect her. Khea Fisher is an enigma in the spark world. To Lark, she is one of only a few that he cannot read. From the first time she meets Lark, he has tried to protect her. She wants nothing more than to be with Lark, in any way she can. However, needing to grow up herself, time passes at the school while she matures as well as her spark. The author’s development of the characters is incredibly crafted and well-shaped. The story captured me and I was intrigued by the details that were maintained throughout the story. The magical fantasy of Madurai and its surrounding lands is mythical. I found myself drawn into the beautiful world. This is a great young adult book that will keep you absorbed till the end. Way to “spark” my interest RS McCoy!
