Myxini School for Children specializes in training young men and women who have powerful Sparks. Strikers are taught to manipulate fire. Trackers learn to find animals in the most formidable terrains. Handlers are instructed in communication with large predators. But forty years have passed since the last time they had a Reader – a student with the ability to read minds.
RS McCoy didn’t ever plan on being a writer. With a career teaching high school science, writing is the last thing she expected. But life never goes the way you think it will. While battling cancer, she picked up her laptop and let the words flow out. One year later, her first published fantasy novel will be released on Amazon soon and her second novel is in the works. She is a wife, mother of one with another on the way, a scientist, baker, gardener, and life-long science fiction and fantasy addict.
This book started out a little slow, but it was interesting nonetheless. A boy named Lark is sold by his father for money so he can buy the cure for his dying wife. Lark is not an ordinary boy, he can read minds and finds out that he's going to a better place, a school to learn to control his "spark" and his mother won't die. So Lark unselfishly makes the decision to go. Along the way, he meets up with new friends, a sometimes-sadistic mentor, and the love of his life. This book is filled with love, betrayal, action, and so much more. I loved this book, some parts I was completely heartbroken by (so be forewarned). I definitely recommend this book to anyone!
