But destiny has other plans when the tall, handsome, and unusual Rafael Channing moves into the neighborhood. Athletic and with killer looks, he wears black eyeliner like a magician and speaks like a hero from a seventeenth-century novel.
What starts out as a light-hearted investigation with her gadget-happy foster father takes a serious turn when she discovers that Rafael isn't human. Add Jareth, the country's latest rock sensation, into the mix and Sydney is swept into a mysterious world of Tulpas, the Fae, and the Brotherhood of the Snake.
Sydney doesn't know she's a Blue Thread of Fate. She doesn't know the fate of humanity depends on her choice of whom to trust-Jareth or Rafael. And she certainly doesn't know that she's taken the first step on the unexpected path of love.
This version also includes the short story "Behind the Mirror": Rafael is a Fate Tracker, protecting his world and Earth from disaster, only what should he do when disaster appears in the form of love?
Serious, yet with more than a dash of humor and romance, the Glass Wall is the first book in a new urban fantasy series "The Return of the Ancients" with the remaining books to follow: "The Brotherhood of the Snake", "The Inner Circle", and "The Egg".

I liked this book quite a bit. The characters are loveable, the romance is clean, the writing well done and the conversations between characters are not stilted as they are in some books. I find Ebooks are especially difficult sometimes and this was not one of those. The series is YA and is appropriate for the genre. This book and series is worth the read. You will want to read the second one!
I've read a number of Carmen Caine's historical romances and I have to say she does just as good a job writing young adult paranormal fantasy. This is one of those books that will pull you in and allow you to escape reality for a while. It's not loaded down with those “OMG, I'm a teenager with SOOOO many problems” moments, which is a blessing. It's really a great story and an excellent beginning to the series.
