When Lark is stolen from Earth to be a slave on the planet Tavdora, she’s determined to find her way back home to her family, no matter the cost. Placed in the household of a notorious slave trader, Lark quickly learns her best assets are her eyes and ears. And if she’s brave enough, her voice.

Be heard. 

 Kalen is the Tavdorian son of a slave trader and in line to inherit his father’s business. But his growing feelings for Lark, the new house slave who dares to speak of freedom, compel him to reveal his new plan for the slave ships returning to Earth—escape. Together, they just might spark a change that flares across the universe.

Fight back.

I have a soft spot for space books, they are ones I always enjoy. The Vanishing Spark of Dusk by Sara Baysinger is a space star-cross lovers, smashed with adventure. Lark is a strong head character, she cares this story well. Kalen, the main male lead, was a joy to read because he wears his heart on his sleeves. I enjoyed the push and pull this story gave. The book opens with a pow, the slows down then slowly picks back up. It starts with a betrayed, space travel to a new plant, new love, reblues, family, and more. For me, there was only one major twist I didn't see coming. The book does cover the heavy topic of slavery, and I feel that Sara does a good job of talk about this topic without leaving this story, and facing the problem of it. Her style is one of my favorite things about this book, I just really enjoy her style. Overall, it was a good space read, that surprised me with some funny scenes, and lots of adventure.

I received a NetGalley ARC of this book in exchange for an honest review. This doesn't in any way influence my opinion on it. So, this is a 100% honest review by me.
