Don’t Fight the Spark

by Kasia Bacon  – Michael Fox (Narrator) 

✨✨✨

The Blurb: As the Light Festival draws near, the Něssyrians craft paper lanterns, awaiting the most important holiday of the year.

The Lyliňg Fighting House, too, prepares for celebration—by laying fresh sand onto the arena and setting up a match against their top pit fighter, the unrivalled Yüuzuki Ōren.

His last match. One he can’t win.

With the odds more than stacked against him, the gorgeous Barbarian is as good as dead. Unless his lover, healer Ĥaiatto Ẽkana, proves himself every bit as determined as he is clever and finds a way to protect the man he’d stop at nothing to save

(Soldiers and Mercenaries #1)

MMy Thoughts and Review:

✨✨✨

I honestly struggled with this one and I can’t give a good reason as to why. The Story itself was unique and original filled with magic, vampires, politics, social classes, and warriors who fight in matches reminiscent of Rome’s gladiators, only they have no weapons. They fight MMA style, or at least they are supposed to. The arena champ is brought to the healer, a spark (I’ll explain later), who also happens to be the fighter’s lover. Upon close examination the healer sees the fighter has been stabbed.

Using what little magic he has, he heals him best he can with time doing the rest. The healer is then told his lover will be fighting on the night of lights, well or not, which happens to be in three days. Because the healer is only a spark, he must use spells and magic purchased from mages, so his magic isn’t as powerful as it would be if he were a full mage. With his hands tied and knowing if his lover fights in three days he will die, he seeks help from a very unlikely source.

As I stated in the beginning, I struggled with this one and have no idea why. It holds all the elements I love in a story, the characters were multi-faceted, the MCs were a very “opposites attract” pair that had awesome chemistry. The writing had an almost lyrical quality to it, and the inner monologue of the healer while rueful and even self deprecating at times endeared the reader to him.

The Narration was crisp, and Michael Fox’s soft spoken British tongue leant an added air of romanticism to the story.

Even with everything I liked, something was missing. I do hope there will be more to this series, until then I plan to keep listening to this until I figure out what the “something” is that isn’t there, or until my brain is fully satisfied. Perhaps it’s like reading an Austin, in that you have to read it a handful of times before fully embracing all that it has to offer. **sigh… The struggle is real, people!

On a totally unrelated note: I need to become a vampire…no migraines!!!😂 With as many as I get, perhaps I’m a Spark!💕 Stranger things have happened ya know!

I received a complimentary copy of this book in exchange for an honest review.⛄
