About this ebook

A new dystopian dark romance! When Mercy refuses to serve the men of Ember Glen as they purge beneath the full moon, Arlo forces her to find absolution through three brutal trials. Yet their chemistry is undeniable, and it sparks a forbidden romance that might just destroy their world.


★★★★★ "A morally pitch black love interest…" -Amanda J, Goodreads Review-



Neglecting my duty to serve is a sin, and during the last full moon, I became a sinner.


He saw me run from my duty, chased me, and caught me.

He promised me that I would be punished.


But I never could have imagined the hellish fate that would be chosen for me. More than that, I never could have imagined the maddening lust that would spark between me and the man who caught me.


This passion is forbidden…and it might set us on fire.




It's my role to catch the sinners, and Mercy sinned gravely.


I saw her and I chased her, drawn to her inexplicably.

She sparked something within me, but she had to be brought to judgment.


Her punishment is coming in the form of an archaic ritual we're bringing back to make an example of her. I'll be her warden, her keeper, the man to ensure she stays alive between her tortuous trials.


Something within her brings out the worst of me…and the worst of me wants to ruin her.

Spark of Madness by Brynn Ford is not for the faint hearted. This is a dystopian dark romance that doesn't stop at any limit. Raw. Depraved. Sometimes disturbing. I am confused about how I feel about this book. I am oddly intrigued with this unique story. I know every step ahead is painful and heartbreaking but I just cannot stop putting one foot in front of another. I reviewed an early copy voluntarily
