Sparks: Welcome to the Madhouse by Dan Cummings (Book Review #55)


Welcome to the Madhouse because it truly is one! This is a story written about a hidden madhouse underneath the hospital grounds named after the regional headquarters of the Frontline Unified Battalion of Arcane Resistance (FUBAR). Dave, a simple janitor, discovers this place by accident alongside the fact that he possesses some gifts of his own.

An accident turns Dave into this psycho. He creates a gang called the Whiskey Team and starts a war with the Alliance of Nyx, which intent to conquer the world. Dave’s team consisted of, special unit force individuals, such as sparks, witches, a ghost and Rufus a 6, 3” werewolf. They even managed to add a cool Japanese ninja to their squad, just in case the team was not as miss-matched as it should be.

This book is a true Marvel like story with a mixture of X-Men warriors. It is written with such high-quality literature standard. The expressions and scenic telling are precisely enough for the correct envisioning of the thriller story. The Author, Dan Cummings is an excellent action and adventure story writer. It is very clear that he has spent a sincere amount of time thinking about the plot and summary. The individual characters were very intriguing. Each of them had special personalities and enough backstory to keep you in the loop. They were all introduced to the reader individually, and it gave enough time to feel a bond with them before moving on to the next. I particularly liked the relationship between Dave and Rufus. They had numerous amounts of time where they would give each other meaningful looks, which I found funny.

The whacky turned Dave kept reminding me of the Joker from Batman. The reminiscing of knowledge towards the fact that you knew what he was doing is wrong, but still you could not stop liking him, was delightful. The all-inclusive profanity alert is apparent in the content, as any madhouse would require some of that sort to keep its reputation.

There are many funny one-liners and back-forth comments that will make you chuckle as you read along. I found the book to have a nice combination of action, thriller, war scenes, and friendship.

I recommend this book for anyone that likes action and adventure stories.
