review taken from One Book At A Time

Opal has some multiple personality disorder or something in this one. While not a bad thing, it was kind of odd. But, I guess it might be understanding considering what she goes through in this book.

Opal has some multiple personality disorder or something in this one. While not a bad thing, it was kind of odd. But, I guess it might be understanding considering what she goes through in this book.

At the beginning she's the character we've seen all along. She's a bit of a pushover, but you can tell she fighting it quite a bit. Instead of going straight to the keep when demanded of her, she still searches for Ulrick. I was disappointed how quick she gave up though. I also greatly disliked how the First Magician's and the council treated her. But, I was expecting it (they did the same thing to Yelena in The Study series). But, I was surprised at how nobody believed her. It's no wonder she switched and became a little bit sarcastic and hardened. She was learning that she couldn't trust anyone but herself.

I liked Devlin a lot during this book. It's refreshing to have a truly reformed bad guy. Although, I was just like Opal and wasn't sure if he was feeding her full of lies. Ulrick, I would have gladly punched him in the face for Opal. Overall, I was happy to see that the truth comes out and Opal learns that she truly has people who love and care about her. And her magical abilities are astounding. I don't think we've learned the true scope of what she can do. I'm looking forward to reading Spy Glass!

    second book in glass series

    i loved this series almost as much as much as the study series. I will continue to read Maria V Snyder books until there are no more. An excellent story weaver. I never guessed what was around the next corner.

    Love this author

    I love these books. There is all the action and excitement, but, I have a problem with Opal.
    ***Spoiler Alert!!!***

    She has no confidence in her own abilities and allows everyone to walk all over her. But, when she decides to gain control and take over her life the fireworks start. I love Opal with a backbone, you go girl!! Now lets discuss Opal's other little problem. Who is it that Opal really wants? Does Opal want to be involved with Kade the safe secure choice or Devlin, a man she has good reason to hate. But as we all know there is this thin line between love and hate. And Kade as sweet and dependable he is there is something I do not lie or trust about him. Odd for me, I normally root for the nice guy, there is something there I just don't know what it is.

    *Spoiler over*

    All in all I enjoyed it and the only regret I have is that it will be 2011 before the next book comes out and my questions and thoughts get addressed.

    Another good book from Maria V. Snyder

    This book is the continuing story about Opal which started in the Magic Study series and "Storm Glass". It is interesting and a good plot. It is lacking somewhat in depth and descriptiveness. But a good story. These should be read in sequence.
