REVIEW:
4 stars

Kyle Prue's Sparks was an intriguing and captivating story that hooks you right from the beginning. The idea of the story, alone, hooked me. The story, the characters, and the detail were all fantastic. The characters were all very well-developed, they had flaws and they were realistic.

It was interesting how the Emperor made his decisions in isolating each of the families. By doing this, Prue made the story seem more believable in some of the aspects regarding the families isolation.

Overall, I would highly recommend this book to any YA fantasy lovers out there, becuase it is was a fantastic fantasy and it was a pretty decently quick read.

Summary:

To survive incredible odds, one teen may have to trust both his former enemies and his fire-forged destiny…

Neil Vapros is one of the last free warriors of the great city of Altryon. He and his brother’s only chance of staying alive involves trusting an uneasy alliance with their former enemies. But in the world beyond his city’s walls, Neil’s life is much more dangerous than he ever imagined possible…

The Emperor has hired a ruthless madman and a vicious pack of assassins to hunt down the last supernatural survivors. As the allies attempt to hide from their enemies, the leader of a rebellion singles out Neil as the answer to a prophecy. Neil isn’t sure he believes he’s been “chosen,” but he knows one thing for sure: their only chance for survival lies in sticking together. While treachery and pain wait around every corner, Neil and his allies may win the day, but victory without casualties could prove impossible…

The Flames is the second book in the award-winning Epic Feud trilogy of young adult fantasy novels. If you like rich fantasy settings, imaginative supernatural abilities, and tough-as-nails characters, then you’ll love Kyle Prue’s electrifying adventure.

This continuation from the first book was just as amazing and fascinating as the first book, and like the first, it was a pretty quick read. You get to see Neil as he continues to grow as a character through this story.

I thought the prophecy was a nice addition to the story, and I liked meeting the new characters of the rebels. This plot of the this book was well thoughout, and enjoyable. I was impressed with how this book didn't see to be less exciting than the first book (as many sequels do), and how I wanted to jump into this book as much as the first.

All in all, I would highly recommend this series to any YA lovers out there who enjoy fantasy worlds. This was an enjoyable story that was quickly read.
