    To me, this story was more NA than YA. Although age wasn't mentioned, there was some mature content and the main characters appeared to be living and making life choices of someone in their 20's. Granted this is sci-fi and maybe the ages of the characters were meant to be irrelevant. Even so, as an adult reader, I enjoyed this book tremendously and wouldn’t hesitate to read more like it. The Vanishing Spark of Dusk was intense, romantic, gut-wrenching, and eerily reminiscent of a not-so-long-ago past. I enjoy sci-fi/alien/romance stories and this one was all that and so much more. It was somewhat of an allegorical re-telling of America’s own history with slavery. The effect on me was visceral as I read about the subordinate and inhumane treatment of alien slaves. Much like how I have felt when reading or watching movies about American slavery or Native American displacement. That along with the suspense of attempted escapes, threat of capture, or impending punishments; I often felt on edge and had to put the book down for moments of respite. To be fair, it never stopped me from picking it back up and continuing on and my imagination and fears were always much worse than what actually occurred. As for the romance, I was hooked. With so many obstacles in the way of Lark and Kalen’s forbidden romance, it was thrilling to watch them dance around their attraction and tentatively throw caution aside. Overall, this was a wonderful story that ends with a satisfying conclusion, but with definite hints of a continuing series. If so, I’m on board for reading more of this world. (This is my voluntary and unbiased review of an advanced copy of The Vanishing Spark of Dusk via Entangled Teen and Netgalley)
