Book Review ~ Glimmerglass
Author: Jenna Black
Cover: 4, The cover of glimmerglass is alone very pretty (minus the sparkles) but when put with a collection of books it clashes.
Dana Hathaway doesn't know it yet, but she's in big trouble. When her alcoholic mom shows up at her voice recital drunk, again, Dana decides she’s had enough and runs away to find her mysterious father in Avalon: the only place on Earth where the regular, everyday world and the captivating, magical world of Faerie intersect. But from the moment Dana sets foot in Avalon, everything goes wrong, for it turns out she isn't just an ordinary teenage girl—she's a Faeriewalker, a rare individual who can travel between both worlds, and the only person who can bring magic into the human world and technology into Faerie.
Soon, Dana finds herself tangled up in a cutthroat game of Fae politics. Someone's trying to kill her, and everyone seems to want something from her, from her newfound friends and family to Ethan, the hot Fae guy Dana figures she’ll never have a chance with… until she does. Caught between two worlds, Dana isn’t sure where she’ll ever fit in and who can be trusted, not to mention if her world will ever be normal again…
Glimmerglass is the first in the Faeriewalker series. I found the writing to be really engaging and made me want mor and more and more (so much i finished it in a few hours.) The events in the book mean the characters are always on their toes and it’s very go, go, go. This book is full of twists mainly with whom exactly Dana can trust and whose side should she be on. No character in this story was hard to picture each had a definite personality and it made for great reading, (although i don't know who may favourite is... Maybe Finn?) By the end you still don’t know who you can trust and can’t trust which gives a great lead (as well as other unanswered questions) for the next book.
Great start to a new series! I can't wait for the next book and this series is a definite must read. LOVED IT.
