Battlemage Jex Xander has a mouth that gets him into trouble; while in contrast, Enari Namelum speaks not at all. Amidst the mounting chaos, passion and romance should be the last thing on their minds, but life and the Goddess seem to have other ideas.
They say to keep your friends close and your enemies closer, but at court you can’t tell one from the other…and they change at the flip of a coin.

If you are a fan of Game of Thrones, you are sure to love Errant Spark by Ronelle Antionette. At the heart of the story there are several ruling families and each seems to have his or her own agenda at play. Like GOT there is a power struggle going on with loads of conniving people each making a play for power in some way. You cannot trust anyone because as the story progresses you discover that everyone has secrets. EVERYONE.
On the down side this story started off very slow. Considering all the ground work that the author had to establish it makes sense. Trust me. You need to stick with it. Once it takes off the pages simply fly by. The characters are complex and well defined. While there are several intricate stories intertwining, Jex and Enari's story steals the show. Despite Enari's non verbalization, her emotions speak volumes. With all the backstabbing and closed door scheming, her relationship with Jex is quite refreshing. Add it that the amazing narration and it simply comes to life.
Ginny Ross did a fantastic job narrating Ronelle Antionette's Errant Spark. Since the story centers around several different affluent families from different countries there are multiple dialects for Ginny to use. She did a brilliant job of differencing between the dialects. I would think one the hardest characters to portray would be Enari since her words are inside her head and not really vocalized but Ginny really connected me to this character.
I am looking forward to continuing the series and really hope to explore other selections by both the author and narrator.
