An outlawed myth. A forbidden love, that could be deadly. A young girl, who never suspected that those who promised safety were her deadliest enemies.

Iskra is committed to following the rules—the rules that keep everyone safe. But when a savage outlaw rescues her from a gang of vicious bandits, she discovers that most of what she believes is a lie.

As her feelings for the outlaw turn from fear to love, Iskra begins to take risks she’d never imagined. Then those who had promised her safety became her deadliest enemies, determined to separate her from her forbidden love—or destroy her in the process.

Flight of the Spark is a Romeo and Juliet retelling set in an epic fantasy world. If you like dystopian worlds, tenacious heroines, and compelling characters, you’ll love this gripping first novel in the award-winning Outlawed Myth series.

From Midwest Review of Books:

An impressively original, deftly crafted and inherently entertaining read from cover to cover, Flight of the Spark is an unreservedly recommended addition to school and community library YA Fiction collections.

From Readers’ Favorite:

Flight of the Spark is a story that drew me in. Puerto was able to put me in the mind of all the main characters; I could feel their fear, anger, hope and happiness as it happened. The ending was not what I thought it would be and I’m glad this is a series because it hints at more. This is a 5-star book that recommend to anyone who likes an adventurous story of discovery mixed with love, rebellion, and suspense all rolled into one.

From Long and Short Reviews:

Devastatingly beautiful from start to finish, Flight of the Spark left me completely enthralled and praying to the sky-god that my predictions for the sequel would come true!…
Though Flight of the Spark was written for a teen audience, it brought with it so many important lessons that especially in today’s world would be so immeasurably important for audiences of all ages. It took me away to a different world, but saddled itself up parallel to the one we live in now, helping me find perspective in these unsure times.
Don’t pass up the opportunity to enter the world that Evelyn Puerto has so passionately created for us. Flight of the Spark will fill you with a magic you may have thought disappeared a long time ago. I can’t wait for the sequel.

From Indies Today:

Evelyn Puerto has laid the groundwork for a fantastic fantasy in this first in the Outlawed Myth series…Flight of the Spark is a wickedly entertaining story for anybody who has ever wanted to break free.
