I received Zeus' Spark in return for an honest review. 

Beth has only been at Halfling Academy for a short period of time when classmates start going missing. She's only just learned about being the daughter of Zeus, and his demigod heir at the moment. It's up to Beth and her bestie Raven to figure out what's happening to the Academy before it's to late. They are sent on a quest with Raven's boyfriend Greyson a wolf shifter and the one boy that Beth was hoping to avoid Jayden. Together to set out to save their missing classmates but along the way they learn that this is only the beginning. 

I really liked Beth she's perfect as our heroine she's not perfect but I think that's what makers her so charming. Next is Raven the daughter of Ares which makes an excellent fighter and supportive best friend. The guys are Greyson who is a werewolf shifter his mate is Raven which is a unique pair. Last but not least is Jayden he broke Beth's heart and ever since has been trying to win her back. The more time they spend together the harder it is for her to stay mad at him. 

I love the demigod concept as I'm a little obsessed with mythology fiction novels. I only had one complaint I wanted to read Beth's story before she arrived at the academy I felt I missed out on some key information. Plus I would have enjoyed Beth and Jaydens love story from the beginning. However, the story is peppered with little teasers of what happened in the past which I liked. The story was fast paced, action packed and steamy all my favorite things. I had a hard time putting it down because I wanted to know what they would encounter next. The author has done a beautiful job creating a captivating story that captures the heart as well as the imagination and I can't wait for the next one. Perfect for fans of mythology.
