Spark: Book One of the Firebrand Chronicles
Brenna James wants three things for her sixteenth birthday: to find her history notes before the test, to have her mother return from her business trip, and to stop creating fires with her bare hands. Yeah, that’s so not happening.
When Brenna learns her mother is missing in an alternate reality called Linneah, she travels through a portal to find her. But Brenna’s arrival in Linneah begins the fulfillment of an ancient prophecy, including a royal murder and the theft of Linneah’s most powerful relic: The Sacred Veil.
Brenna and her new friend Baldwin pursue the thief into the dangerous woods of Silvastamen and beyond. When they spy an army marching toward Linneah, Brenna is horrified. Can she find the veil, save her mother, and warn Linneah in time?
Full of vivid images, non-stop action, and the sweetest of romances, Spark will leave you on the edge of your seat and will keep you riveted until the tale is finished. Even then, this story will linger for you to savor.
