      A friend of mine recommended Spark by Anthea Sharp and I'm so glad I listened to her. Imagine my gamer heart's surprise at the originality of the plot and the main characters. Sharp's gift for keeping me on my toes as I read made for a fun read! I didn't know what was going to happen next. A little confusing at times but eventually I caught up. lol! Highly recommend!My Rating: 4 stars

      (I read this book as part of the Nine By Nightset, which I got on NetGalley in exchange for an honest review. Since I'm not going to read all nine books in one go, I'm posting short reviews separately.)A light and enjoyable read, but one that felt a little confusing at times, in the beginning: I hadn't realised it followed a previous trilogy. However, it made me feel like reading said trilogy (perhaps I'm even more interested in it than in the second one, actually). I have a soft spot for storie [...]

      Back in October, I reviewed Anthea Sharp’s Feyland trilogy on my blog. I’d gotten the first two Feyland books as part of Story Bundle’s young adult bundle, and enjoyed them so much that I got the third one from . This month, Ms. Sharp offered to send me an advance review copy of Spark, the first book in her new spin-off series, Feyguard. I tore through it in three days, loved it, and now as per my word, I am reviewing it.The elements I loved from the Feyland trilogy continue in Feyguard. E [...]

      [Full disclosure: I requested and received a free ebook from Anthea Sharp in exchange for an honest review.]In Feyland: The Twilight Kingdom one of my favourite characters was the teenage gaming superstar Spark Jaxley. She was sassy, tough and a talented gamer and I wanted to learn more about her. Imagine my surprise and happiness when I learned that the first book in the spin-off series would actually feature Spark as a main character.I was far from disappointed, believe me. Spark sure is a sas [...]

      With the way to the Dark Court of the Fey locked away in a video game, this made the story line a very interesting blend of fantasy and science fiction. I don't think I've ever read anything else like this. However, I think it's a little misleading that no where in the description does it mention this is a spin-off series from Sharp's Feyland Trilogy. I had to read through other reviews to find that out, because from the beginning you know something has happened to the group of friends saying go [...]

    7. Kathy Burford

      Superstar gamer Spark Jaxley is a good choice for the protagonist of the first story of the Feyguard series: in the earlier Feyland books she was appealing and honorable, but we knew less about her than about some of the other main characters. The gamers are now playing their new role, thwarting the attempts of the Dark Queen and her followers to penetrate the boundary between Faerie and the everyday world. The use of folklore elements and evocation of the Dark Realm are very successful, creatin [...]

      I had read FEYLAND-THE DARK REALM and loved it so I read this one too.Aran Cole was a fascinating character. He’s extremely poor and one of the best hackers out there when it comes to finding game cheats. He certainly has the motivation to improve his station in life and he’s not afraid to manipulate people to get what he wants. Aran’s not your typical cold-hearted criminal, though. So basically you have two awesome characters. How was the world-building? As with the original Feyland trilo [...]

    9. Jonel Boyko

      I was so glad to re-join Sharp in Feyland for more adventures. The Feyguard series picks up right where the Feyland trilogy leaves off but takes you so much further into this remarkable world. She takes off with this tale using the same well written and approachable style that we’ve come to know and love. Her descriptions are extremely vivid, allowing you and inviting you into her fabulous world. As a reader you are completely immersed in the world of gaming (I’m not a gamer at all, and I co [...]

      I received an ebook copy of Spark from the author in exchange for my honest review. I had downloaded Book 1 of the Feyland series a few days prior to receiving Spark, but hadn't had a chance to begin reading it yet - and it is the next book I am going to read! Reading the Feyland series before reading Spark was not necessary, though it did make me want to read all of them by the time I was 1/3 of the way through! I enjoyed reading about the tech without it coming off as if it were "dumbed-down" [...]

      I loved this book so much. It was nice following another character from the Feyland trilogy and Spark is such a down to Earth kind of girl. It has everything a book needs. Romance (just a dab), excitement, mystery, and action. When given the chance I will probably read this book again. I may even buy a paperback copy just to sit it on my shelf.

    13. Francesca

      I got this as part of a book bundle, Nine By Night. I bought this from , and was thrilled that this was part of the collection. I had read the prequel and somehow forgot to read the three books in the first series that led to the Feyguard series. That thought aside, I loved this book. Spark Jaxley was fantastic. I could go on, but I'm sleepy.

    14. Thyme Wisper

      Addictive seriesI don't even play video games. But after reading Feyland Trilogy and now the first of the Feyguard series, I have a hint of why people do play. It's exciting and intense. But doubt real life video games would be as good as these books describe. So I will just eagerly get ready to read the next book in the series.

    15. April W

      Great read! Full of adventure and a bit of budding romance. Aran is a great addition to the cast of characters we know and love from the Feyland series. This is a start to the Feyguard series which is a continuation of the Feyland series. I look forward to Feyguard book 2 coming out.

    16. Meg Cowley

      I loved this book and could not put it down!I really enjoyed how fresh and real the characters and settings were and the storyline as a whole was gripping. I really liked the twists and turns added in to make things unpredictable!

    17. M.L. Guida

      Definitely hooked on this series. Sharp does a great job weaving this story around the others and brings back the characters. The pace picks up toward the end of the book.

    18. Emmyjo

      Wow, I wanted to read something different than what I normally read. And I love this book. I love how the characters all had a story. And most of all Spark and Aran are my fave. I want more of them.

    19. Keshia Preston

      I was hooked on this book from start to finish, I love how adding the gaming element gave a new twist on faerie lore. I can't wait to read the second book! X

      I DNF'd this as part of the Nine By Night Urban Fantasy Collection.Welcome to the Feyland MMORPG, now being tested with the latest virtual reality technology that makes you feel things. This MMORPG is inexplicably connected to the Fairyland, which was sealed off by the Elder Fey thousands of years ago. An evil fairy, the Dark Queen, executes a plan to free herself: she captures an unwitting hacker boy named Aran and forces him to hack his way out. Meanwhile, our main heroine Spark did a bunch of [...]

    21. Linda Rout

      If you like fey fairy fantasy stories then this is a series for you!!!!! Takes place in the future with lots of future Technology but pulls in the world of the fey Very interesting and enjoyable read.

    22. Terisa

      Spark Jaxley is a 17 year old gamer that works for a company that is releasing a new game called Feyland but that’s not her only job even though it is the only one that pays. Her other job is to guard the realm of the Fairies because they do exist and they aren’t nice little Fairies like Tinker Bell. No, they are evil and are ruled by the Dark Queen and she wants to take over and control of the mortal world. It’s up to Spark and six others to keep the world safe. Only one problem, the game [...]

    23. Rebecca

      This is the first book by Anthea Sharp I have read and it was provided to me as a reader review. First off, I'll begin by saying that I love her take on the fae world. It's completely different from anything I have read or seen before and I love that! The futuristic time frame and the ability to interact between worlds with technology is a really good change from the norm. The storyline was good, interesting. I wouldn't say it's necessarily a page-turner, but I was definitely not going to leave [...]

      Sissy says--I don’t like gaming, I don’t like futuristic settings, and I don’t like weird made-up names, but I liked this book. And here's what I liked about it: Spark, the character, is an awesome girl! She is slightly tomboyish but can rock the spandex when needed. She is true to herself and is real. I liked the new character Aran, and how he struggles to do the right thing and go for the girl. I liked how much I hated the bad guys (evil twin gamers Roc and Cora Terabin). My favorite, th [...]

    25. Bobbi

      This puts a really awesome twist on Fey folk and adding gaming with it was very interesting. Spark, a super star sim gamer and a Feyguard, only wants to keep everyone safe while playing her games and most of the time just wants to have a normal life. Aron, a code hacker and gamer, just wants to have it all and be recognized. When a new game demo comes to his town he thinks he will have it made but things take a turn and he feels he is doing the right thing but then disturbing facts come to life [...]

    26. Bekah Martin

      Solid addition to the Feyland-verse and good start to stage 2: the Feyguard. I thoroughly enjoyed spunky, magenta-haired Spark Jaxley. Lovely supporting characters, too: Niteesh is just too precious and impish! And we get a glimmer of Bard Thomas's life at the Dark Court, which is beautifully bittersweet. But at any rate, the male lead is dubiously delightful, of course. Dear Aran has his stupid moments, but he also gets the opportunity to redeem himself (in a way similar to Edmund Pevensie).

    27. Drew Doll

      I thoroughly enjoyed this book. In fact, I liked it enough to read the rest of the series and put the prior series in my TBR stream.Fast-paced plot, quick read. Not a lot of character development and a standard redemption story, but enjoyable for an afternoon's entertainment. As simple as the story was, Ms. Sharp was able to do what only successful authors do: she made me want to knowwhat happens next. I'm sold on the series and Ms. Sharp.

    28. Heather

      I was sucked in right from the beginning. I love everything about this book, the plot, they fey, the feyguard.Vivid and very well written. My only complaint is around the 78% Mark, a previous section of the book had been placed right in the middle of the climax and it confused me for a moment.In all, this is a fantastic read for youth and adults alike, I don't recall any adult nature or language.

    29. Lynn

      Well-paced plot with no confusing twists or holes, well-rounded characters with good development, and sufficient exposition that I didn't feel completely lost for not having read the Feyland trilogy. Definitely not my favorite book, but one I'm very comfortable recommending, and one that, at times, I could hardly put down.

    30. Kathryn E Manson

      A great seriesI read the first book of Feyland (the free one) and I was hooked. The trilogy was fantastic and left me wanting more of Feyland. Spark (the Feyguard) did not disappoint! I can't wait to read the rest of the series. Ms. Sharp is a wonderful writer and I will read everything else that she writes.
