Book Review: Sparks

                          Today's review is on Sparks by Laura Bickle

Sparks is the second book in Bickle's Anya Kalinczk series, and in my opinion lacked the sparks of a sequel.

It's been a few months since the death of her lover Drake, and Ayna is trying to go on with her life. One morning, she is woken up with a call from her Boss. There has been a fire in the home of a hoarder.

What seems to be an act of spontaneous combustion, sends Ayna on an adventure to stop Hope Solomon, a con artist posing as a Spiritual Adviser from Miracles for the Masses, from capturing and collecting spirits. With the help of "Death"; in the form of Charon, she travels into hell to stop her.

While working the case, she is confronted with the closed-mindedness of the others in DAGR regarding ghosts. She knows that they have feelings just as live people, whereas the others feel that once a person is dead they have now rights, or they are all evil.

Babies are born, loved ones die, and ghosts find happiness in the Afterlife.

Though Sparks had a decent story line, Anya's inability to stand up for herself and her beliefs was just to disappointing. For example, she questions Brian's moral's, but still stays with him in the end. Where's the drama?

Sparks is an alright book, but nothing special. I'm not sure if I would be interested in reading the next in this series, unless the characters change drastically.

3 of 5 stars
