Book Review #176 - Spark (Sky Chasers #2) by Amy Kathleen Ryan

Spark (Sky Chasers, #2)

Waverly and Kieran are finally reunited on the Empyrean. Kieran has led the boys safely up to this point, and now that the girls are back, their mission seems slightly less impossible: to chase down the New Horizon, and save their parents from the enemy ship. But nothing is truly as it seems…Kieran’s leadership methods have raised Seth’s hackles— and Waverly’s suspicions. Is this really her fiancĂ©? The handsome, loving boy she was torn from just a short time before? More and more, she finds her thoughts aligned with Seth’s. But if Seth is Kieran’s Enemy No. 1, what does that make her?


In one night, a strange explosion rocks the Empyrean—shooting them off course and delaying their pursuit of the New Horizon—and Seth is mysteriously released from the brig. Seth is the most obvious suspect for the explosion, and Waverly the most obvious suspect for releasing him. As the tension reaches a boiling point, will Seth be able to find the true culprit before Kieran locks them both away—or worse? Will Waverly follow her heart, even if it puts lives at risk? With the balance of power precarious and the clock ticking, every decision counts… every step brings them closer to a new beginning, or a sudden end...
My Rating: 5/5
I would like to thank Pan Macmillan Australia for sending me a copy for review.
I read this book straight after reading Glow, which was good because it picked up right from where Glow left off and so I was invested in the book instantly.
What really showed the quality of the writing was how quickly a good character can suddenly turn bad and vise versa. Seth was a character that I despised in Glow, yet the further into Spark I got the more I liked him.
With Keiran and Waverly breaking up and hence hating each other, it would be easy to take a side, but the way in which the book is written, whenever you are reading Waverly's point of view you dislike Keiran and whenever you are reading Keiran's point of view, you dislike Waverley.
This book has a much more darker theme than Glow, which makes it much more intriguing and adds further depth.
The cliff hanger at the end was worse than the one at the end of Glow, and so I cannot wait for the third book.
