WHAT PEOPLE HAVE TO SAY
"Wonderful story really draws you in and leaves you wishing it would never end! Great characters and something adults can enjoy and feel good about giving to their kids. I love it and can't wait for the next book!"
"The story oscillates between madcap action and gentle repose with the grace of a Southern summer breeze, carrying readers along on a fully relatable tale of intrigue and untested bravery."
-Andrew Trauger author of The Dagonslayers Saga
"The Spark was commended to me by my sister. She knows how much I like Tolkein’s works, as well as those of C.S. Lewis and I was not disappointed.
The book is well crafted, with an unexpected depth and nothing which forces the imagination. I am looking forward to the next book in the series."
"Jess develops each character until you wish you could meet them in person. The conflicts and resolutions have Christian theological undertones per Tolkien or Lewis. Great adventure that leaves me excited for Book Two!"
