The Vanishing Spark of Dusk by Sara Baysinger Review

Rating – ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️

Release date – 8th January 2018

I absolutely adored this book. I’m not usually a fan of alien books; I don’t actually think I’ve ever read an alien book that I really loved, so I had pretty low expectations for this when I went into it.

Lark is a native of Earth; she, along with her fellow humans, live in fear of being enslaved by the Tavdorians. And when Lark stands up for a pair of runaway slaves, her own people betray her to the enemy, sentencing her to a life of slavery on a planet that’s far away from home.

I loved Lark. I don’t think she’s going to be for everyone; she’s quiet and scared, and spends a lot of her time being saved from a sympathetic Tavdorian, Kalen, who is also the son of a slave trader. And she also sucks at subterfuge and sneaking around. Like, is Lark creeping about in an office somewhere? Yeah, give it a few minutes, she’s about to get busted.

But despite all this, I felt very close to Lark. I loved seeing her grow in confidence and find her voice.

And the romance?

I swooned, I’m not gonna lie.

Do you ever meet a character and just sort of know?

You know you’ve got another book boyfriend. You know you’re in trouble. That was me with Kalen.

I loved him with Lark. I loved the growth of their relationship.

I just loved this book

The ending is incredibly heartwarming, and while it’s a very satisfying ending, I also feel like there could be a second book, which I would definitely pick up.
