Title: SPARKS AND SHADOW (Rising Elements Book 1) Author: Ceara Nobles Publisher: Riverside Press Genre: YA Fantasy
Seattle is full of monsters, and I’m the only one who can see them.
I’ve spent the last 17 years (AKA my whole life) pretending I can’t see the monsters who disguise themselves as humans. I may not have a place to live and my best friend may be moments away from getting in too deep with the city’s most dangerous drug lord, but I’m rolling with the status quo.
That is, until I save my arch enemy’s stupid life and find myself in a warehouse full of monsters. Next thing I know, I’m in Monster Land (AKA not Seattle) and up to my ears in monsters, magic, and inevitable mayhem. If I want to get home, I have to join a band of revolutionaries and stay alive long enough to get back through the portal before war breaks out.
This’ll be a cinch.
Sparks and Shadow is a modern, action-packed YA portal fantasy featuring Fae mythology, magic, and slow-burn romance. This is the first book in the Rising Elements series. Book Information

SPARKS AND SHADOW (Rising Elements Book 1) was a great young adult fantasy book that I found to be an enjoyable read. I really liked the whole mosnters disguised as humans idea and the plot quickly pulled me. The author did a great job with describing Seattle and really brought the city to life for me.
