Winter Glass picks up where its predecessor Spindle Fire left off. So, if you have not read Spindle fire, I recommend you read that one first and then pick up this book. I will also say that I enjoyed this book more than I did spindle fire!
The Author is also a poet and it is evident as the writing in both Spindle Fire and Winter Glass is often poetic and lyrical which really help transport the reader in into this fairy tale/fantasy land of sisters Aurora and Isabelle. Princess Aurora has awakened and plots to kill the faerie queen Malfleur. Her sister Isabelle, unites her heart and kingdom with Prince William (YES!!) to wage war against Malfleur.
Both sisters have their own story-lines going with interesting characters such a Wren, who can hear Aurora when others cannot. Both sisters grow even more in this book and become stronger on their own and both learn about themselves and what they are capable of. One of the things I liked about Spindle Fire was the bond these sisters have and even though most of the time they are apart in this book, they still have a bond.
This book has a little bit of everything: romance, true love, evil characters, hope, strength, good vs. evil, magic, a glass (which isn’t glass) slipper, and of course beautiful writing. We also get to see the good, the bad and the ugly in some of the characters.
Again, I thought Winter Glass was even better than Spindle Fire! Keep in mind that these two books are a fairy tale re-telling and they do not disappoint. I read most of this book in one day as I could not put it down. I just had to know how this series was going to end and how the Author was going to get us there! Winter Glass is captivating and sucked me in instantly and I had to keep turning the pages to see how it would end. The story-line is riveting and engaging. The pacing of this book is fantastic. Nothing felt drawn out and I never wanted to rush the story along.
I received a copy of this book in exchange for an honest review.
