The second book in an exciting new YA/crossover series about genetically engineered individuals with superhuman abilities.

It's hard to remember hating anything as much as I hate Affinity; a bone-deep loathing for the faceless unknown and the concrete walls of my own DNA. Evie is a Shield: designed to kill in order to protect, and the Affinity Project have finally come for her. But Evie isn't ready for the sinister organisation to take control of her life, her body, her mind. She isn't ready to follow their rules about who may live and who must die - not when it condemns the innocent. She has one option: risk losing everything and everyone - including Jamie - and run.

  • Spark (Book 1) was published in 2014 and Shield (Book 3) will be in 2016.
  • Rachael Craw has written an absolutely nail-biting, action-packed sequel to Spark. And she doesn't skimp on the heartache!
  • Praise for Spark from Books+Publishing: "Spark is perfect for 14-year-olds who liked Scott Westerfeld's Uglies series and Suzanne Collins' The Hunger Games. trilogy. 5/5 stars."
