Dystopian is my favorite genre, and Evelyn Puerto didn't let me down with her new book, Flight of The Spark. YA isn't my favorite trait from the dystopian family, but Puerto's book is suitable for all audiences.

The author mixes medieval fantasy vibes with YA dystopian features as she tells the story of young Iskra. Iskra starts as an obedient fifteen-year-old who flies under the radar. Soon, she uncovers prophecies and dark leads that crack the facade of the rulers. What are the real motives of

I found it a very captivating story. Minor Spoilers ahead.

Around the second chapter, it takes off immediately. There were a few quirks to get used to at the beginning like dialogue and description in the same paragraph, but the story was good enough that they are easily glossed over. They only really appeared for maybe the first few chapters.

The diction was superb and varied. The characters were interesting. Personally, I wish I could pronounce more of the risker names. Xico, I had the most

Dystopian YA fiction often has something to say about our current society or mankind in general, and this book did a great job of illustrating several different evils. The leaders in this dystopia rule by keeping the populace ignorant and afraid, and it was easy to believe that that could happen, even to this extreme. The common villagers' infighting and betrayals are a product of this. The abuse is as well. Through young Iskra's eyes, we see what it would be like to be brainwashed into

Most fantasy takes a few chapters for me to settle into as I get used to the world the author creates and work to pronounce the names of the characters (perhaps the one thing I’d change about the genre). This book starts with Iskra, the main character, traveling from her little village of Gishin to Shinroo with friend and the traders. Because the author took the time to introduce the world in a way I could process as I read, the story of this 15-year-old traveling a dangerous path wasn’t hard to ...more

“Taking a risk stretches you, so you can find out what you can do, instead of being sure you cannot.” (Location 2602).

Iskra has lived in her small town her entire life. She is safe. She follows the rules. But she longs to visit the next town over and when her mother allows it, she giddily accompanies her friend on the trip. The road between towns is dangerous, full of Riskers and other barbarians. Iskra wasn’t worried before stepping outside the town’s gate, but with only the protection of the

Let me tell you what I liked: There are bandits, war boars, and raiders; bowstrings, battle axes and throat slittings; wagons, swords, healing amulets and caravans. And there’s a prophecy! Wow! See what I mean? And then there are beautiful words and excitement in every page. I could NOT put it down. Fantasy. YA. This will make a great gift, to give or to receive ** this holiday season. I recommend it highly. Selma Writes. ...more

I loved this book! It started out a little slow, but by the third chapter I couldn't put it down. The characters were likable and I found it easy to immerse myself in their world.
This book has everything you could want in a book. Likable characters, great descriptions, with a little romance and magic sprinkled in.
I can't wait to read the next book!!
