A solid, entertaining read! I enjoyed the dual MCs and dimensions. There are hints of Avatar here, along with themes of growing in strength and the power of choice. I thought the twists were good and showed how well the author had a handle on her various characters' motivations.

I enjoyed Sparks Fly, though I don’t think this was necessarily designed for this male geek in his mid-forties! As such, I found myself less interested in the will-they-won’t-they relationship angles, and more fascinated by the dimensional world building, and the concept of a ‘savior’ trained from birth to tackle the forces of evil. Some of those latter elements were not developed as much as I would have liked, but I still appreciated this professionally written debut novel from Kadian Thomas.

The experience of reading the book is comparable to watching your most coveted show on Hulu or Netflix and desperately waiting to see what's going to happen next.

With a healthy mix of creativity, suspense, character development, and plot structure, Sparks Fly deli

"I love the idea of alternating between the two girls and seeing both of their struggles to end up on the side of the portal they were meant to be. Later on, we are given a third perspective, which in some books would be confusing, but here, I believe it works well." -C.A. King
