Sweet Spark: Logan Ramsay feels like the perfect human, but not just because of his upgrade.

Wow! Just finished this one, and headed straight to write the review - not a usual occurrence. But how to describe what I loved without spoiling it?

Logan Ramsay's mother was the most brilliant mind of her generation. But her misstep cost Logan his freedom for a few years, and cost a lot of the world's population their lives. Logan begins working at the GPA (Gene Protection Agency) to atone for his perceived sins against humanity.

I don't think there are many authors who could break down genetic modification as clearly as this author did. I felt science-y and smart just reading it, while knowing this is a subject wayyyy over my head. But Logan would make some gene observation, and I'd be like, "Of COURSE!" Definitely one of the best sci-fi books I've ever read, which leads to my 5 out of 5 star rating.

I could barely put this book down, and even the ending was satisfying. With that said, I hope to get back to his previous works at some point and see if I love them as much as I loved Upgrade.

Thank you to the publisher and Netgalley for my electronic copy of this book. Receiving the book for free did not influence my review.
