Book Spotlight: The Vanishing Spark of Dusk by Sara Baysinger

We're excited to be part of the blog tour for The Vanishing Spark of Dusk by Sara Baysinger! Sara has visited Lands Uncharted a few times in the past for an interview and to share her Top 3 Favorite Dystopian Novels.

Today we're celebrating Sara's latest novel, The Vanishing Spark of Dusk, which just released on January 8th! Here's the back cover blurb:

Stand up.

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.

You can purchase The Vanishing Spark of Dusk here. I had the opportunity to read an ARC of this book, and it was a powerful, beautifully written story! But I should note that it has some language and sensuality that makes it more mature than our usually PG-13 or below standards. To find out more, check out the full blog tour schedule here.

And here's a little about the author:

My name is Sara Baysinger and I write books. I was born in the heart of the Andes Mountains in Ecuador where I spent my early life exploring uncharted lands on horseback and raising chickens. I now make my home among the endless cornfields of Indiana with my husband and two children…and I still raise chickens. My dystopian novel Black Tiger was self-published in 2016, with books 2 & 3 published in 2017. When not getting lost in a book, I can be found gardening, devouring chocolate, and running off the sugar-high from said chocolate.

I’m currently working on an upcoming science fiction romance novel that will release with Entangled Teen, an imprint of Entangled Publishing.

You can connect with Sara on her website or Twitter.

Sara has a giveaway going as part of her blog tour! Enter below for a chance to win a signed copy of the book, $25 Amazon gift card, and a handmade adjustable ring that says "Be heard."

Congratulations on your new release, Sara, and thanks for letting us celebrate with you!

  1. Sounds like a great book, Sara! I have a book idea that involves slave traders (though the setting is totally different), which makes it doubly interesting--pleasure read and research. ;)
