BLOG TOUR AND REVIEW: Sparked by Sheena Snow


YA Light Sci-Fi
Date Published: December 16, 2016

They weren’t supposed to have feelings.

Metal will Clash

In a not-too-distance future, robots composed of metal for bones, electric cords for veins, and synthetics for skin are now available. For purchase. Eighteen-year-old Vienna Avery’s home is going to change forever, now that her mom purchased an Italian Chef Robot to cook and reside in their house.

Secrets will Unfold

The government claimed robots were indifferent, unthinking pieces of metal and elastic—assistance for the help of humans. Vienna never believed much of what the government said. The pieces didn’t always fit. And now Vienna knows why, because she’s uncovered the government’s secret: that robots have emotions, sucking Vienna into the underground world of feeling, thinking, and sovereign robots.

Sparks will Fly

Alec Cypher is everything a robot is not supposed to be: deep, dark, and dangerously human. And for some reason, he wants to save Vienna from the government’s prying, vindictive eyes. Going forward, Vienna will have to learn to trust robots and battle the growing feelings she never thought possible . . . feelings for the green-eyed, soul-searching robot named Alec.

REVIEW BY: Arianna, age 13 years, 1 month

MAY CONTAIN SPOILER:

This book was intense and had me interested at the opening line! 

My favorite character is Bonnie because she is so happy and optimistic, even after she lost those that she loved. 

My favorite part is when Bonnie shares what happened to her because Vienna and her share a warm/heartfelt sisterly moment. 

I recommend this book to anyone who likes reading about government takeovers, romance and family. 

I give this book 5 out of 5 stars and recommend it for ages 13 and up. 

ABOUT THE AUTHOR:

Sheena Snow, contrary to her name, lives in South Florida and has only seen snow once. But she would love for it to land on her eyelashes and sparkle in her hair. She loves painting, candle making, orchid shows, tattoo conventions, hockey games and library book sales! After college she landed a full time job but kept serving pizza on the weekends and writing stories about characters she wished really existed, characters who never gave up no matter the obstacles life threw at them. At the age of twenty-six, she sold her first book and bought her very first puppy, a wonderful Yorkie named Aladdin.
