Comments The Vanishing Spark of Dusk

  • Carrie

    The Vanishing Spark of Dusk by Sara Baysinger is a young adult science fiction fantasy romance read. And before I even begin to share my thoughts on this book I’d like to say that while this one looks to be a standalone novel I’d highly encourage the author to continue with this world and characters she created and turn this one into a series. This for me was one of those books that had a perfectly acceptable ending but I so did not want it to end, I wanted the story to go on and could see s [...]

    ***2.5/5 Stars***The beginning of The Vanishing Spark of Dust was magnificent. It contained a heroine who I knew would come out of her shell, an alien who was forbidden but oh so addicting and a world that was beyond fascinating yet terrifying at the same time. I was completely glued to the pages and thought that I had found my next favorite book. But at 10% into the book, everything changed for me. There were two triggers that adversely affected me.And they made me take a huge step back emotion [...]

    Full Review on my blog!*a copy was provided by NetGalley*Wow! I came expecting one thing and got another! The plot in The Vanishing Spark is full of action and romance. There's so much at play here - rebel groups, evil men, space journeys, and a divided family. I couldn't flip the pages fast enough! I just wanted to know everything! The romance was steamy. Lark and Kalen had such a great dynamic - I loved how they constantly would push at each other's buttons. Plus their ending was sooooo frea [...]

    I received an ARC of this book from the author in exchange for an honest review.This is the fourth book I've received for review from Sara and let me tell you, it's always a pleasure to pick up her work! The Vanishing Spark of Dusk did a 180 from her other series, a dystopian, and dove into hard core Sci-Fi. The main character, Lark, is a human stolen from Earth by a race of aliens who have systematically enslaved humanity. Lark's home in what was Indiana is one of the last known strongholds of [...]

  • Kate (beautifulbookland)

    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 [...]

    Checkout more of my reviews on my blog! omgbooksandmorebooksFirstly, this book is a standalone. And after reading, you will want more. I do hope the author writes more books for this series. I love anything sci-fi and I adored this book. The ending is sweet and heart warming. Lark and Kalen is such a great dynamic. I will miss these two. There were many things I loved about this book, the characters, Lark's character growth, the world building, the conflicts, and more. Though it is a bit slow in [...]

    I've read a lot of books published by EntangledTeen over the course of 2017. Some I liked. Some I loved. As it turns out, however, I saved the greatest for last - The Vanishing Spark of Dusk by Sara Baysinger. Honestly, I think this may just be EntangledTeen's best book yet. I'll be honest here: it took me a while to warm up to Lark. In the beginning she's timid and spineless. She refuses to speak up for herself, and, instead, she consistently mulls over her failings, wishing she could be brave [...]


  • Laura A. Grace

    4.5 starsOh, this book! I came expecting one thing and got quite another! Some of it might have left me slightly uncomfortable (Lark has quite the potty mouth), but others were just overwhelming in how beautiful they were.So many different topics were hit in this story that are so relevant to the issue of race, gender, and self-sacrifice. Lark and Kalen's story was one of the most powerful things that hit home. Though some parts were quite steamy, their relationship is simply beautiful. I won't [...]

    Such a beautiful book! Soo happy I got to read this! It was so perfect and the ending was adorable!


  • Stephanie Ward

    I wasn't sure what to expect when I read the description for this book. I like science fiction, but I don't normally read many alien-related novels - so I have to admit I was a bit apprehensive and on the fence to begin with. Gladly, I was quickly and easily sucked into Lark's world and ended up really liking the book. There were a couple aspects that I didn't really care for much - the majority of the story line was about slavery, inequality, social injustice, freeing slaves, escaping, etc. I k [...]


  • Laurie Lucking

    I don't read a lot of science fiction, but I really enjoyed this book! The author's prose incorporated so much beauty and emotion, and I found the world-building really intriguing. Lark was generally a likable character, though she seemed contradictory at times and her relatively easy life as a slave removed some of the tension from her situation. Kalen was a fascinating love interest - it took me quite a while to warm up to him, but eventually he won me over :) Their relationship was too heavy [...]


  • Andréa

    I had a lot of expectations starting this book. In many ways it delivered but in some it didn't. The plot was well thought but a bit predictable sometimes. The writing was really good and kept me interested until the end. I had to know what would happen to Lark, Kalen and their friends. I enjoyed the slow building of the relationship between Lark and Kalen even if the attraction was here from their first encounter. Lark was strong and smart. She never gave up hope of finding her freedom. I liked [...]

    I absolutely loved this! It was so much more than I'd expected. I mean, from the looks of it I thought it would be a romance with the flowery prose (come on, don't you get the same feel from the title?) but it turned out to be more than that. The Vanishing Spark Of Dusk is the perfect mixture of science fiction, aliens without humanity, some with humanity, strong humans with empathy, and a well-developed romance. The story revolves around Lark, a native on Earth, who hasn't been captured by the [...]

    celebrityreaders/2018/01/0I received a free copy through NetGalley in exchange for an honest and unbiased review/opinion.4 stars — Wow. Again, why don’t I read more science fiction?? I would have missed out on this gem if I wasn’t determined to stretch myself this year!OK, before I get going on my review, I just wanted to note that I would call this book mature YA rather than just normal YA. While I have no problems with all sorts of content, I do notice that people get up in arms about th [...]

    **3.5 Stars**Review featured on smadasbooksmack/Lark is one of the last free humans left on earth, living in a small community that has not been touched by the alien slave traders. Her life seems simple but she is content with her duty and madly in love. When runaway slaves from the nearby alien plantation seek safety with her people, it causes a divide between those who want to help and those who want to turn them in to protect themselves. But little does Lark know, she is now a bargaining chip [...]


  • Olivia Farr

    "The Vanishing Spark of Dusk" is a fantastic sci-fi/fantasy/romance that is suitable for older teens in the YA category or NA readers (due to content, in my opinion). We follow Lark, who is a "native" human- one of the few humans left free on Earth. Most humans have been enslaved by the Tavdorians, either to work on plantations on Earth or as slaves on the other planets they have conquered and enslaved. Although native slaves are worth twice as much as other slaves, Lark's community has a deal w [...]

    Thank you to Entangled Publishing for allowing me to read an advanced copy of this book. I voluntarily read and reviewed this book. All thoughts and opinions are my own.I feel like I will be one of the only people who did not enjoy this book. Sadly I did not finish it. I wanted to love it, I really did. It sounded exactly like the kind of book I (and many others) would appreciate, with hints of rebellion, a forbidden romance and space travel. I thought that despite the strong beginning to the bo [...]

  • T. Rosado

    4.5 Stars!To me, this story was more NA than YA. Although age wasn't mentioned, there was some mature content and the main characters appeared to be living and making life choices of someone in their 20's. Granted this is sci-fi and maybe the ages of the characters were meant to be irrelevant. Even so, as an adult reader, I enjoyed this book tremendously and wouldn’t hesitate to read more like it.The Vanishing Spark of Dusk was intense, romantic, gut-wrenching, and eerily reminiscent of a not- [...]

    *I received an ARC of this book courtesy of the publisher and netgalley and I read and review it freely with my own thoughts and opinions of my own*I’m starting my netgalley year with a genre I like sci-fi YA, so I was almost sure to enjoy it. When I started the book I wasn’t sure. Slavery is not a subject to tackle easily, it can go wrong very fast, and it doesn’t matter when it happens in a world with aliens. As we live as human readers, sure we won’t get abducted by Tavdorians but sla [...]

    Actual rating: 3.5 starsMany thanks to netgalley for the arc in exchange for an honest review.Overall this was an interesting story about a romance between a human slave and Tavdorian slavetrader (who isn't much of a slavetrader). The world building is fantastic. I do love that a lot of thought was put into the cultures of Tavdorians, Onmarians and whatnot. It really came to life. This was perhaps one of my favourite aspects of this arc. A well built world provides a very strong platform for the [...]


  • Holly

    I was really excited to hear about this book when Entangled Teen began teasing it as a forthcoming release, because I just love science fiction. SFF has been one of my top two favorite genres (the other being historical fiction) for as long as I can remember. Throw in aliens and new planets to discover, and I’m there! So I jumped at the chance to read this one.I will say there are things I did like and things I didn’t like, but the good definitely outweighs the bad on balance, hence the 4-st [...]

    Read it on my blog: wordpress/post/vicsense.w Summary After an alien invasion made by a civilization known as the Tavdorians, Earth has become a breeding ground for slave plantations and resourcing. Lark is one of the few last natives of Earth who lives freely on a small plot of land with a handful of other natives. That is, until she is captured by slave traders and sent to work on their home planet. Refusing to bow down and become a slave for her whole life, Lark soon finds herself accepting a [...]

    ~I was provided this book in exchange for an honest review from Netgalley and Entangled: Teen Publishing.~My Synopsis:In a world where being human is terrifying and aliens haunt their nightmares, Lark tries to keep her head down in a safe area and etch out a meager life. That is until her world is turned upside down and she finds herself a slave on the home planet of the aliens that haunt her every waking moment- perhaps her sleeping ones too. Kalen is the son of a notorious slave trader and is [...]
