The girl's English accent was flat, exhausted. Like she didn’t expect anyone to care about what she was saying; like she wasn’t sure why she was bothering at all. But then, she was British – and, apparently, Northern. And something terrible was happening in the North, and if she was thinking nobody had come to their rescue so far, she was right.

It’s 2034 and the United Kin

A real accomplishment. Stellar story, with incredibly portrayed characters that I couldn’t help but fall in love with. Highly impressed by the portrayal of mental illness and the themes present in Sparks, and I’m so glad to see queer protagonists being unapologetic and kick-ass heroes. Loved it.

Epically Awesome!!!

With the North and South now divided in the UK life has never been more different. Following on from Blackout, we join the characters again in the next leg of their epic adventure for freedom and justice. When they are picked up by The Agency, their talents are put to good use and they promise to help them fight against The Board, but The Agency soon shows itself to not be all it seems and so the fight against the The Board takes an unexpected turn.

EPIC! EPIC! EPIC! I adore t

This book was everything I hoped for - and even more.

The tension builds, the Board become an even bigger (and more personal) threat, there's yet more dangerous, life-threatening tension, and I LOVE the new characters introduced. My favourite thing is the honesty of these books, how everything feels raw and real - the love, the trauma, the heartache, and the anxiety of the characters. It's the perfect balance of heartwarming, sweet, and emotional enough to make me bawl for the characters. And the

there’s so much darkness in this one but it works so well; and almost all of it is perfectly counterbalanced by lighter moments - whether it’s a moment of humour or a soft glance between the characters! (and you all know how much i love a balanced book!!) it’s also hella queer & the entire story is driven by a chaotic group of wonderful little weirdos. dystopian style fiction isn’t normally my go-to genre but i have to admit that this one (and Blackout - the first in the series) really did keep ...more

Kit Mallory has a way of exploring the dark and finding the light; and a knack for characters with depth and attitude.

I loved BLACKOUT and I love SPARKS. To get to spend more time with the characters and find out what they do next (no spoilers!), was a real treat. I felt like I was with them on their mission to make the world a better place.

The most gripping dystopian fiction books are the kind that portray a world where you think ‘yikes, I could imagine this happening’ - and this is one of th

I was dying to discover what happens next to this crack team of rebellious misfits as soon as I read the final lines of the original Blackout, and I was not disappointed. Sparks had everything I wanted - butts were kicked, safes were cracked and girls kissed girls. All against a smart backdrop of a dystopian UK and an evil dictatorship that must be overthrown.

Excellent read, and a compelling end to the Blackout story. I wish books like this had existed when I was a teen. 10/10.

In the second book in this series, Angel was one of those with something to lose, and it felt like she was reigning herself in the whole time - and even though it was harshly done, Angel had to work through her PTSD to be able to function a little bit better, instead of closing herself off the whole time. I didn't quite know what to make of Julia Hann - there were times when she could come across as underhandedly manipulative; but she also seemed to be fighting for the greater good and was on th ...more
