    Something you should know about me - I absolutely love and adore the Mahabharata since childhood. I've read so many versions of the epic by different authors in multiple languages and I keep continuing to do so even now. So, when I got to know about this book, I knew I was going to rea...

    I?ve been kind of all over the place with my reading lately, and not a lot has been sticking, but when I read the summary for A Spark of White Fire I downloaded it immediately. I love Sci-Fi and I had some high expectations for this and it didn?t let me down. Admittedly this...

    Look, I wanted to love this book more than anything else. I think this was one of my most anticipated ARCs. There were a lot of disparate elements in this book: gods, sentient spaceships, hidden princesses, secret twins, being trained secretly...all in less than the first 20% of th...

    So grateful I got to read an early copy! This is a super addictive, captivating read. I love the way Sangu blends fantastical elements with sci-fi and the Indian mythology inspiration is rich and unique. A heroine you?ll root for from from page 1 and a fast-paced plot with so many tw...

    Years ago, I read Sangu Mandanna?s debut novel. While I wasn?t exactly blown away, I thought it?d be worth returning to her work later on in her career. So when I heard about her second book, A Spark of White Fire, a young adult sci-fi novel inspired by the Mahabharata, I decided...

    ?Watch as one act leads to another after that. Watch the trees pass white flames on. Watch the forest burn.? A Spark of White Fire reminds me of bacon with ice cream. A mixture of two incredible things that are shockingly even more pleasing when mixed together! I?ve never be...

    A Spark of White Fire was a bit of a surprise to me. I've been in such a reading rut, such that I reread books constantly and when I do read something new, I'm not entirely in love with it. However, this book escaped that luckily! You won't be able to put A Spark of White Fire down. ...

    This is an #OwnVoices review. This was one of my highly anticipated reads because a sci-fi spin on a beloved and revered classic of Indian mythology really intrigued me. As the source material is vast in its scope, I was wondering how a trilogy was going to pay homage to that. It tu...

    4.5 stars. A Spark of White Fire is an example of political intrigue done right in YA, and one of the best YA books set in space I've ever read. I don't know if it's right to call A Spark of White Fire "science fiction". This Mahabharata retelling is a genre-bending gem - which i...

    4 stars Mandanna really does not beat around the bush, and I really appreciate that. Right from the start you're thrust into the action and stakes, and although it was a little surprising and took a chapter or two to understand and get used to, it was so worth it and far better t...

    A Spark of White Fire is, in the literal sense, a story of cosmic scope and mythic proportions. It was a seamless melding of fantasy and science fiction (my go-to genres!), spun from the rich fabric of Indian mythology and folklore. And yes, I was utterly captivated, swept up in this...
