Today I want to talk about Sparky, the familiar from Anya in Embers by Laura Bickle.
I LOVE sparky! He's so cool and fun. Let me show you by some snippets from Embers:
"A fire spirit, a salamander, was unleashed from the necklace. He shimmered with semitransparent light, large as a Rottweiler. Sparky took the shape of the massive speckled salamanders found in mountain streams, the monsters that folks called hellbenders."
"He padded across the floor to a large flannel dog bed placed against the wall. Resting in the bed was his favorite toy: a Gloworm.
Sparky placed his foot on the Gloworm. It lit up. He removed his paw, and the light winked out. He cocked his head, watching it, then patted it again."
"Sparky padded across the room, tail switching. He could smell the testosterone in the air, and wasn't about to let *** get away with hitting on his charge. He stomped up to *** and savagely bit him in the knee."
(name blanked out to avoid being too spoilery)
Well, if that doesn't make you curious to learn more about this really cool familiar I don't know what will, except that I can tell you that there will be even more of Sparky and other fire salamanders in the next book: Sparks.
