Author: Rachael Craw

Series: Spark (Book 2) (see book 1 review here)

Rating: 5 billion stars

Genre: Sci-fi Contemporary

Synopsis: It’s hard to remember hating anything as much as I hate Affinity; a bone-deep loathing for the faceless unknown and the concrete walls of my own DNA.

Evie is a Shield: designed to kill in order to protect, and the Affinity Project have finally come for her. But Evie isn’t ready for the sinister organisation to take control of her life, her body, her mind. She isn’t ready to follow their rules about who may live and who must die – not when it condemns the innocent. She has one option: risk losing everything and everyone – including Jamie – and run.

How I got this book: Sent from publisher (because they are THE ACTUAL BEST!!!)

Release Date: September 1, 2015

The Short Version:



This is also a spoiler free review.

The Long Version:


So, first Evie was all


And then I was all


Then Rachael Craw was all


And then I was all


And then stuff kept happening like and I was all




And by the end I was all

Stray was a fantastic sequel. It was everything Spark was, and more. Evie and Kitty were as fantastic as ever, Jamie was wonderful, AND we got a look at the inner workings of Affinity.

Basically, this book was just perfect.

In Conclusion:

If you haven’t started reading this series yet then YOU SERIOUSLY NEED TO GET ON THAT. These books are actually amazing and are nowhere NEAR as popular as they need to be.
