Stand up.

When Lark is stolen from Earth to be a slave on the planet Tavdora, she’s determined to find her way back home to her family, no matter the cost. Placed in the household of a notorious slave trader, Lark quickly learns her best assets are her eyes and ears. And if she’s brave enough, her voice.

Be heard.

Kalen is the Tavdorian son of a slave trader and in line to inherit his father’s business. But his growing feelings for Lark, the new house slave who dares to speak of freedom, compel him to reveal his new plan for the slave ships returning to Earth—escape. Together, they just might spark a change that flares across the universe.

Fight back.

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 charact... ...more

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 enou... ...more

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... ...more

By Kate (beautifulbookland) December 31, 2017

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... ...more

Firstly, 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.... ...more

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:... ...more

By Kirsty (Amethyst Bookwyrm) April 30, 2018

Thanks to Netgalley and Entangled Publishing for giving me this book to review.

The Vanishing Spark of Dusk is an enjoyable sci-fi story with some dystopian elements as well as romance and rebellion. However, it is predictable and slow to start but it does really pick up at about a third of the wa... ...more

Oh, 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... ...more

By Stephanie January 16, 2018

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... ...more

By Laurie January 08, 2018

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 s... ...more

By Fanna January 09, 2018

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...

By Olivia December 23, 2017

"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 Tavdorian... ...more

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. Ev... ...more

By Holly January 17, 2018

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 di... ...more
