Glassmaker and apprentice magician Opal Cowan possesses a rare talent for channeling magic into glass, although the magicians of the Stormdancer clan (including the attractive, brooding Kade) tend to think of her as a one-trick pony. However, when someone sabotages the Stormdancers' glass orbs that control the weather, it's up to Opal to use her unique magic to help them. If you enjoy this blend of magic, mystery, and romance, you'll be glad to know that Opal's adventures continue in Sea Glass and Spy Glass. All three novels are a spin-off of Maria V. Snyder's Study trilogy, which starts with Poison Study.
I enjoyed Yelena so I tried this. Opal is.. truly a doormat and a victim personified. For most of the book she is being attacked, tortured, duped or somehow victimised. And she usually feels guilty about it. Very odd. She also seems sexually/romantically very confused.
One of my favourite series! Growing from a previous series, but still standing on it's own, Storm Glass delves into a fantastical world where glass can quite literally hold power, but only a select few can wield it, and even fewer can get it there. Dangerous, epic and beautifully original, you'll fall in love with the characters. If you've ever watched a glass blower in wonder and awe, you'll find Storm Glass an experience to remember.
An interesting extension to the world we were introduced to in the poison series. This time its the sister of Tula, Opal, who is the main character.
Opal is an extremely naive and inexpereinced girl, the character is well expressed in this regard.
Good continuation of the "Study" series, and well developed. There's lots of angst in this one, and some we've all experienced: belonging, self-actualization, overcoming hurt, etc. Mind you, reason for it, too!
Quite an original book and an interesting idea. I really had a fun time reading this book. I was not, however, aware that the Study series preceded the Glass series, so I was a bit confused in some places. It was an entertaining summer read, though!
A very original and magical book. The principal character is easy to relate to and the story line is quite interresting. There could have been more romance and action but it's a nice light read.
I enjoyed it but I wouldn't continue with the sequel.
