Short & Sweet: Any and all doubts I ever had about this series flew right out the window with Fire Study. Snyder is back in her element bringing readers a fast paced action novel that kicks butt. Yelena and her friends are tested to the limits in the last installment. And what an ending it was. I was completely blown away. Final Verdict: Fire Study easily reminded me why Snyder is such a talented writer. I devoured this novel in hours… not wanting to put this novel down for anything. It was a completely satisfying read that left me in awe.

She may not believe in the mythical way to save them, but she becomes involved because of curiosity and because her only real friend Inside is willing to risk it all to find a way out.

Opal is back in action again in Sea Glass. Like the previous novel, Opal is an engaging and fun character to follow. Her adventures are plenty as she seems to leap from one troublesome adventure to another. From the previous novel, Storm Glass, Opal has done what seems like a complete 180 in regards to her personality. Gone is the optimistic Opal who believes in the good of everyone. In her place is an Opal who as been burned one too many times. An Opal who seems jaded beyond belief. As reader, I enjoyed seeing another side of her […]
Since being captivated a few months ago by Snyder's dystopian novel, Inside Out, I decided that it might be time to give her fantasy novel, Storm Glass, a chance. And I have to say that I was very pleasantly surprised. Readers of Tamora Pierce will quickly discover that they have found a kindred soul in Snyder. Her words flow effortlessly from the page creating a breath-taking world that readers will never want to leave. It is a world that is easy to bask in. The details are full bodied and utterly enchanting. This can also be said of the characters. Opal, Kade, and […]
I absolutely love Maria V. Snyder's books and I bugged Emily to borrow her copy of Spy Glass from BEA. Thanks Emily! In Spy Glass, Opal sets out on another adventure involving danger, intrigue, and, as always, romance. I don't want to reveal too much for those that haven't read the rest of the series, so I will leave it at that. I definitely love how action-filled the Glass series continues to be and look forward to any related series that Maria writes next. Opal has changed again and she has to deal with more issues externally and internally to […]
