The Spark Form Chronicles duology reaches its exciting conclusion!

As day two of the tournament begins, the top four competitors are readying themselves for the battles that lay ahead. But will their toughest battles take place in the arena, or will they be forced to focus on goals other than the championship?

With Carnival’s existence hanging in the balance, how hard each player is willing to fight has never been more important …

Carnival by Matt Doyle 
(The Spark Form Chronicles, #2)

CARNIVAL (The Spark Form Chronicles, #2)Who is Carnival? What is Carnival? Is this her time to win the Spark Form fight, again? Has she found humanity in the maze of 1s and 0s of computer coding? Step back into Matt Doyle’s world of Artificial Intelligence, holograms and the lust for blood from the masses who find death, contrived or real, entertainment in an increasingly restless dystopia world. Prepare for what could be the final round of the final battle for Carnival and John Forester as John weakens while Carnival must decide between continued existence or “death” only to be re-born a more powerful being or a spare part vessel.

Everyone has an agenda, a bone to pick, an axe to grind, a legend to take down and there will be times when you wonder who is the human and who is the creation of the mega-intelligent. Get ready for a cast of personalities that come to life under the skill of Matt Doyle’s pen. Combining card games with battle strategies and personal quests, the deadly games are played, rather like watching the Gladiators of ancient times, proving that no mater how advanced the world becomes, how distorted life is, there is always a feral animal within humanity that seeks the brutality of battle without getting ones hand dirty. And that is entertainment at any price, with little thought to the lives involved.

Matt Doyle’s tale might seem to be gaming in prose, but I do NOT believe Carnival belongs in a niche type genre. Good writing that is filled with tension and continual action and interaction deserves to be read, enjoyed, thought about and shared. Take a walk into a fresh read and discover another talented author.

I received this copy from the author, Matt Doyle in exchange for my honest review.
