An undercover mission leads to danger, adventure and an impossible choice. After siphoning her own blood magic in the showdown at Hubal, Opal Cowan has lost her powers. She can no longer create glass magic. More, she's immune to the effects of magic. Opal is now an outsider looking in, spying through the glass on those with the powers she once had, powers that make a difference in the world. Until spying through the glass becomes her new power. Suddenly, the beautiful pieces she makes flash in the presence of magic. And then she discovers that someone has stolen some of her blood - and that finding it might let her regain her powers. Or know it could be they are lost forever.
Opal is mopey. She has lost her powers and now feels like an outsider in the world that she has come to love. Her love life is in shambles. Kade is distant… and her relationship with a certain reformed "friend" is not a simple as it may seem. On top of everything, Opal discovers that her blood maybe still be out there somewhere… just waiting on her to find. But finding it may come at a high cost. Will she become addicted to the blood magic like so many before her have? Or will her new found immunity cause issues she never dreamed of? Only time will tell in this gripping finish.
Quite honestly, Spy Glass surprised me. Opal is finally back to being a character I am both familiar and comfortable with. Her spark is back in ways that I really was not expecting. I found myself enthralled with Spy Glass' whole cast of characters, and on the edge of my seat to discover how everything would play out. This novel is quite possibly the best in the trilogy. The characters are fun again. Their adventures were exciting. And I just loved trying to guess how Opal's love triangle would play out.
Spy Glass is a thrilling and exciting conclusion to the Glass trilogy. Synder shines in highlighting Opal's adventures both physically and romantically. This novel will have you reading late into the night, dying to know how everything will conclude.
