MY 2015 READING CHALLENGE- A BOOK SET IN THE FUTURE
Nearly a century ago the world was decimated by a magical war. In their defeat, elves were captured by humans, cut off from their magic, and broken down into lifeless, drone-like slaves.
Avery is different. Somehow, her magic has always simmered beneath the surface. Never completely broken, she must pretend in order to survive. When Zander, her master’s nephew, brings her magic out in full force, she finds out what it’s like to truly be alive.
Ripped from Zander’s side and sent to The Farm, Avery doesn’t know if she’ll be able to hide her light and make it out alive. But there, she’ll meet someone who knows her true purpose.
The war isn’t over, and if Avery can survive, she could be the one to set her people free. All it takes is a little hope and a Spark of Light.

The Spark of Light by Elizabeth Tuttle was my first ever book with elves, unless Santa was present with them.
This book grabbed me in the first couple of paragraphs, and I normally don't read the genre. This is saying a lot for me, I normally don't read any fantasy or paranormal, EVER! With this reading challenge, I'm hoping to broaden my reading horizon. Spark of Light did just that for me.
Tuttle gave this book suspense and a sexy vibe, that kept me turning pages. I found myself almost forgetting I was reading fantasy. It seemed so much like new adult / romantic suspense at times, I got lost in this wonderful tale Avery. Avery Knew she was different but she couldn't figure out why. She is an elf with magic but she really didn't understand her true powers. She has a will not to be broken by the guards and masters. She manages to hold on and not be completely broken, when her master's nephew comes to live with them, he brings her magic to the surface. She can no longer pretend and everyone sees.
The characters in this book intrigued me, I devoured them. Tuttle has such great character development and her storyline was superb, I felt like I was right there in the story with Avery and Zander (master's nephew) spying on their forbidden romance. Catching their stolen moments together.
I really enjoyed this book and maybe just maybe, I might have to start giving the Fantasy genre a try. Trust me, don't ever say that you WILL NOT read a certain genre because a really good author like Tuttle will come along and prove you wrong.
Spark of Light by Elizabeth Tuttle receives 4 stars
