As the Light Festival draws near, the Něssyrians craft paper lanterns, awaiting the most important holiday of the year. 
The Lyliňg Fighting House, too, prepares for celebration—by laying fresh sand onto the arena and setting up a match against their top pit fighter, the unrivalled Yüuzuki Ōren.
His last match. One he can’t win.
With the odds more than stacked against him, the gorgeous Barbarian is as good as dead. Unless his lover, healer Ĥaiatto Ẽkana, proves himself every bit as determined as he is clever and finds a way to protect the man he’d stop at nothing to save.

“Don’t you see? It’s magic every time you touch me.”

I get quite giddy when I see Kasia Bacon has written another story in her truly engaging Order Universe. She’s fast becoming my favorite Author in the fantasy genre. She has created some amazing couples who I absolutely always fall in love with…From the beautiful scene settings, the addictive plots, the loveable characters, these short stories never fail to deliver.

Barbarian fighter Yuuzuki is resigned to his fate-he has one final match which he knows will only end one way. Time and circumstances are against him. His one wish is the safety of his lover, healer Haiatto.

“You’re everything I could’ve dreamed of. Everything I’ve ever needed. Perfect. You’re perfect. I want you to remember this. I just wish so damn much that I could love you for a little bit longer.”

Together for years, their love for each other might not have been vocalized yet but they both know it exists and Haiatto is determined to do whatever he can to save his lover-but what will the price be?

”Tell me, would you follow me if I found a way out?” His answer came in a heartbeat. “I would,” he said. “Anywhere.”

Prepare to be transported into the mystical, fascinating world Kasia Bacon has created once more in Don’t Fight the Spark-you’ll fall in love all over again…

I adored this story, I loved these two men but damn, I wanted more!



“Are you wishing on a star, Yüu?” I perched on his chair and moved in to extract the empty crystal from his grasp. I replaced it with my fingers, lacing them around his.  

His gaze found mine, piercing me with an intent stare as if trying to solve a puzzle. He acted collected, as always, but his golden eyes gleamed with something foreign: resignation and sorrow. “If I could offer a lantern for a blessing bestowed upon me this past year, it would be lit for you,” he said. “I’m thankful for every moment you’ve spent with me. For your every kiss. Every smile you’ve given me.”

The teasing grin died on my lips. I knew what Yüu was doing: exactly what Rhēn had suggested I did. Saying goodbye. Preparing me. Letting go. Giving up on us.

Without realising it, I clutched his hand as if it were a lifeline slipping away from me in deep water.


~About the Author~

A linguist and an avid reader with a particular fondness for fantasy and paranormal genres, KASIA BACON lives in London with her husband. When not tearing her hair out over a translating project, she writes stories about the shenanigans of emotionally constipated assassins and sexy Elves. Otherwise, she can be found shaking her loins at a Zumba class, binging on anime or admiring throwing knives on Pinterest. She has a mild coffee and lemon tart (gluten free) addiction. A lover of MMA and Muay Thai, she also enjoys nature and the great outdoors. She dreams of becoming independently wealthy, leaving the city and moving into her wooden mini-manor—located in the heart of stunning forests resembling those of the Elven Country depicted in her tales.
