This is Gabriel's story in the series, the brother whose element is fire. As you'd expect, Gabriel is the bad boy, the tempestuous one who fits his element. Layne, a brainy girl in one of his classes, isn't afraid to call him out and calm him down.
The story is fine; people in town suspect Gabriel when a rash of arson fires hit. Gabriel and his brothers try to solve the mystery as well as Layne. It was probably a little too YA for me, but it's a quick read. ( )

My Thoughts:Fair warning, if you haven't read Storm, you are going to want to stop right now. There will be spoilers for that book. It's kind of impossible to review a sequel without giving away what happened in the prior book.

In this installment, we get to see a lot more of Gabriel. He seems to be dealing with a lot of guilt over what happened to his brothers and his inability to have done more to prevent things or to help them more.

At first, I had a little trouble with the fact that we were reading from a different point of view in this book, and this seems to be something more and more common in YA series' lately. I am not sure if it is something that I like or not, but I digress. And then, of course, the point of view shifts around a little in this book.

We meet a lot of characters that you learn to love, and a lot more characters that you learn to hate. What's more, we learn a bit more about the characters we already knew and gain a bit of a different perspective about them. My eyes really opened on quite a few of the characters in this installment. Of one thing I am absolutely certain, however. Taylor and her cronies need to die a slow and painful death. And Ryan Stacey is the devil incarnate.

I think the biggest shock for me though was the revelation about who was really behind the fires. I totally didn't see that coming but in hindsight, part of me thinks I should have.

The relationship that develops between Gabriel and his love interest took me by surprise, to be sure. I was glad to see it though because it showed a side of him that I didn't think could exist after how his character was playing out in the beginning. Really, the same with Michael. Who would have thought Michael could have a soft side?

Then of course there is the developing friendship between Gabriel and Hunter. After everything that happened in Storm with Hunter, I never would have thought any of them would have trusted him.

All in all, I think Spark was an even bigger roller coaster ride than Storm and I was once again left with more questions than answers. I am sitting here ready to devour more of this series and I get the feeling I will be left with a sense of loss when I get to the end. If you haven't read these yet, you really should!

BOY HOWDY DO I LOVE THE FAMILY DYNAMICS IN THIS SERIES.

also I LOHOHOHOHOVE GABRIEL he is my fave so this book will probably remain my fave.

There are definitely problematic bits though so be careful about body image and slut-shaming, everyone. Give it the side-eye. ( )
