A Spark Unseen by Sharon Cameron
To read my review of the first book in this series, click here: The Dark Unwinding.
Title: A Spark Unseen ( The Dark Unwinding #2)
Author: Sharon Cameron
Genre: YA Historical Mystery/Suspense/Steampunk
Premise: "When Katharine Tulman foils an attempt to kidnap her Uncle Tully, she finds herself caught up in international intrigue. Aware that there are people who want to turn her uncle's mechanical fish into an explosive device, and unsure of who to trust, she decides to fake her uncle's death and flee to Paris in search of Lane Moreau, her uncle's assistant" (King County Library System).
Opinions: This was an intriguing follow-up to The Dark Unwinding. I love to see the courage and tenacity that Katharine displays. I love the faith that she has in someone everyone else has given up for dead. I admire her for being willing to do whatever it took to get the job done, in spite of social conventions of the time. The story was an interesting twist on espionage, historical propriety, with a touch of steampunk thrown in. I can't give too much away because I don't want to spoil the story. So you'll just have to read it.
