REVIEW. SPARK RISING by Kate Corcino
REVIEW SPARK RISING An empowered, independent, talented female and a sexy, intelligent double agent make sparks fly--of all kinds. Two centuries into the future, far from the fossil fuel cataclysm that destroyed electricity and nearly mankind, only highly-trained males with native talent, can manipulate "the Dust" (origin and composition unknown) to make electronic devices perform. Only males possess the innate talent, according to the governing Council of Nine. But renegade "deserter" Lena, whose home in the desert is an abandoned gas station, can Spark anything electrical; and now that the whim for rebellion is strengthening, she and double agent Alex may just light that powder keg too.
