Spark by Brigid Kemmerer Audio Review

three-half-stars

Gabriel has always had his brothers to rely on, especially his twin, Nick. But when an arsonist starts wreaking havoc on their town, all the signs point to Gabriel . . . except he's not doing it.

And no one seems to believe him. No one but a shy sophomore named Layne, a brainiac who dresses in turtlenecks and jeans . . . and keeps him totally off balance. Layne understands family problems, and she understands secrets. She has a few of her own.

Gabriel can't let her guess about his brothers, his abilities, and the danger that's right at his heels. But there are some risks he can't help taking.

I am going to make this review a bit of a mini one because I really just want to get to the main points that I loved about this one. Spark was another great addition in this great audio book series and I swear each one gets better and better and I can’t wait for the next ones to come out. I am really glad that I never got around to the series before because the narration grabs you on these and leaves you wanting more. The things I loved about this book were plentiful:

  • This book is all about us getting to meet Gabriel and we learn he is a fire elemental. I mean what can be hotter than a hot guy that can control fire. That alone had me from the beginning.
  • We get to learn even more about the Merrick boys and why everyone should love them. They are such a tight knit family that really looks out for their own.
  • The narrator brought every character to life and I felt like they were all different people with different voices. She made them so human and more than just characters in a book.
  • The slow build of a friendship and maybe more that started with Layne and Gabriel was off the charts. I loved seeing the way Gabriel treated her and how especially her brother. I really spoke to the type of person he was.
  • This one also had plenty of action and there is even a little mystery thrown in that I have to say I didn’t see who was behind it all coming.

Overall this was a great audio and I was so glad I had the next one to jump right into because right now I can’t get enough of the Merrick boys. They really do hook you and make you not want to leave them alone. Stay tuned for my review for the next one in the series.
