This book might have worked if it was not part of a series.

This book is told mostly from a new character, Ali. She is from the Dark Lands. My sister tells me Logan comes back later in the story (I quit at about half way).

At times this book felt like a different world than the one we have come to know in the previous Swipe books. And mostly just hearing from Ali really hurt the story. If we had heard from other people it might have been okay. Maybe there would be more plot, or more reason for th

Caution: spoilers

This is the fourth book in the swipe series and it is really good. In this book is a story of a young girl in the future and she has a special talent. Technology from the preunity days (current day for us) will magically turn on when she most needs it in times of danger. She is enthralled but a little nervous about how this happens, until one day after escaping some dome agents she is found in a ditch by a nice man. She is taken to his house and given plenty of food and clean cl

It's been nearly a week since I finished the book, so bear with me if this is a bit shorter than what you are accustomed to.
Spark is definitely a worthwhile read, especially for those who have read the rest of the Swipe series. For those who have not read the rest of the series, you could probably read Spark without having read the previous three books.
Spark was captivating with an intriguing premise to the story. Ali is a lovable character, especially how she speaks to herself.

Spark is a unique dystopian action/thriller, loosely based on the book of Revelation from the Bible. The novel is not overtly religious and some may wonder whether it is a Christian novel or not as there is little talk about God in it and unless you are familiar with the end times story from the book of Revelation, you may not recognize the parallel.

Spark is the fourth book in a planned six book series. I would recommend starting at the beginning of the series in order to fully understand the t

This is a dystopian series. I have only read Spark. Ali is a 9 year old girl who is part of a child begging group that is forced to beg and get a quota each week. Ali is usually short, but the our kids help her. When the house is raided, Ali escapes. She finds out that robots like her. She is captured and tortured, but escapes. She is found by Nick who is wealthy and offers her safely, but what are his motives? Ali is very special because she can control electricity and computers. This book seem ...more

I received this novel from NetGalley.

This fourth installment of the "Swipe" series, takes a little longer to really bloom into the fantastic novel that it is, really taking off around the 90 page mark. And although that seems like a long time in a short novel, that back-story does become important later on, making it a deeper story in the end.

Again, Angler has created a fantastic novel, continuing on the fight of the Dust, even incorporating the original characters into Ali's world. The fact tha

Good, but not as good as the other three. Maybe I just missed the main characters from those.

My sister and I have been reading Evan's swipe series for a few months now, and let me say, never once have I been disappointed. His talent far surpasses that of any I've seen in any author I've come across so far.
He creates beautiful, inspiring characters thrown into a captivating plot that we simply could not stop reading about.

AAAAHHH! This book is crazy!! I was totally surprised in the end. Evan Angler always finds a way to build layers and layers of secrets until you don't have any idea what will happen next, or who to trust. I love how all the stories are connected in the end! Now to wait for the next book...
Lisa
I couldn't really stand this book it didn't have much to do with the rest of the series so I gave up reading it.
Tabatha
I really liked the first few books in the series. I just couldn't get into this last novel.

Evan lives without the Mark, evading DOME and writing in the shadows of Beacon.

Swipe is his first book. But if anyone asks, you know nothing about it, and you didn't hear anything from him. Don't make eye contact if you see him. Don't call his name out loud. He's in enough trouble already.

And so are you , if you've read his book.
