SparkedSparked (Metal Bones #1)
by Sheena Snow
Genre: Science Fiction
Age category: Young Adult
Release Date: 16 December, 2015

They weren’t supposed to have feelings.

Metal will Clash
In a not-too-distance future, robots composed of metal for bones, electric cords for veins, and synthetics for skin are now available. For purchase. Eighteen-year-old Vienna Avery’s home is going to change forever, now that her mom purchased an Italian Chef Robot to cook and reside in their house.

Secrets will Unfold
The government claimed robots were indifferent, unthinking pieces of metal and elastic—assistance for the help of humans. Vienna never believed much of what the government said. The pieces didn’t always fit. And now Vienna knows why, because she’s uncovered the government’s secret: that robots have emotions, sucking Vienna into the underground world of feeling, thinking, and sovereign robots.

Sparks will Fly
Alec Cypher is everything a robot is not supposed to be: deep, dark, and dangerously human. And for some reason, he wants to save Vienna from the government’s prying, vindictive eyes. Going forward, Vienna will have to learn to trust robots and battle the growing feelings she never thought possible . . . feelings for the green-eyed, soul-searching robot named Alec.

My Review


Loved it.

Fast paced.Action packed. Mostly Unpredictable.Secrets.Betrayal

The book is well written and the characters are well defined. We have a very determined, charismatic and full of attitude protagonist, that will do anything to keep everyone out of harms way. And a robot squad that will play with your mind all the way through the entire story.

Okay. I am still a bit – okay, a bit more – shocked by how it all ended.
First off we have Vienna – a teenage girl who’s against the use of robots -, her family and a world full of robots. A world which will be ruled by them…or not. We shall see about that. When she comes home from school and finds a robot in her kitchen she’s even more contented to search deeper and deeper to find out what government’s plans are. Besides the fact that he’s a complete gorgeous and master chef, he’s also put there to protect her and her family from an unknown danger. That’s how she meets Green Eyes one day – the commander of Robotatuille’s squad – standing in his car , observing everything she did.

Sparks were bound to come out at some point, and no, not love sparks. As more and more robots are coming after her, it becomes harder for Green Eyes and his squad to go unnoticed. Green Eyes feels it’s time to warn Vienna about the danger she is in, but she doesn’t understand and I don’t blame her, since he doesn’t give her the vital information as to why she is in danger.

Once she’s exposed – because not every time does a robot come into your room using the window – starts fighting him back, but with her little resources and power it seem a futile attempt to discard of her attacker. That’s when Robotatuille comes in and fights him, and for the first time ever since he’s been in her house, he speaks. Finally. Sparks flight in her room and everything looks like after a tornado. Broken doors, shattered glass all around and a dead robot on her carpet.

From there everything starts changing for her and her family, as she has to leave them behind and go with Green Eyes. In some sort of attempt of hiding and keeping her safe somewhere in the mountains. That’s where she meets the rest of the gang : Bonnie,Bear,Kyle and Peach. The last of them not liking her in the least. With each passing day there, she falls more and more for Green Eyes – which she named Alec. But can robots be able to love ? Are they capable of feelings ? That’s something she’ll learn in the time spent there. All the while, she keeps arguing with the voice in her head that keeps telling her that they are not to be trust. That they are nothing more than a pile of metal and wires.But she doesn’t seem to care.

Things tend to get “messy” once she finds out that there’s more to it than Alec lead her to believe, so she decides to take off running through the snow. Ultimately she gets caught by the so called enemies.

If you want to know if she escapes them and if she forgives everyone in her life for all the wrongs they did, than you MUS READ THIS BOOK.

About Cristina

I started this blog for quite a few reasons: 1. To share my opinions about books I read. (I'm open to recommendations) 2. To express myself in the only way that I love,which is of course writing 3. To connect with people with whom I may share the same interests I read and write because it offers me an escape door from the world we live in. A door which allows me to be whomever I want to be, live wherever in this big world,set off on adventures and most of all because it brings my imagination back to life from its very very long sleep. And of course...Because I love to !! Here are some basic things about your host and writer.. My name is Cristina and I come from Bucharest ( also known as The Little Paris ) were I was born, raised and am currently - still - living. I’ve finished my studies a few years ago and got my bachelor degree at Dimitrie Cantemir University, in my hometown; in Economics. I have to admit that this specialty wasn't my first choice. I have been weighing my choices – as in, to what they can provide me in future – both while I was still in high school and after. Initially I wanted to go to Foreign Languages, but I had a big fall the moment I saw that it wasn't acredited – huge disappointment washed over me. I am still a bit disappointed about that to be honest. I have a huge passion for writing ever since I was little, and even if I had times when I didn't (or couldn't) write anything, now I am right back on track. My dad is the only one who knows how much passion I put into what I write and doesn't giggle or grin when I bring it up. I love having someone’s support no matter how little it is,it still means so much to me. Love, Cris ♥ Hope that those who will follow me like what I post around here and - why not - maybe give some ideas about new topics. :) If anyone wants to add something on the blog please contact me at
