WARNING Some minor spoilers but not enough to cloud it I thinkI think I would have enjoyed this book if I'd read it at a different timeFact is I'm getting a bit fed up with the new 'teen urban fantasy' genre and how formulaic it can be I swallowed it for a while but now I'm starting to gag when I come across 'My life sucks here I go to a new place; Oh I'm special; look at these attractive men around me however shall I choose OHNOEZ catastrophe Save me attractive man I lurve you'Would I have been happier with this if I'd read it later when it wasn't directly following The Splendor Falls Yeah probably But the two are so incredibly similar that I started getting annoyed at both Not to say that I didn't enjoy them both in the end but after reading it I got the feeling that TSF was this book crossed with Beautiful Creatures; and as it was published before either of them that feeling really bugs meBreakdown Liked Avalon First of all because I simply love to say that name So pretty Nice way to combine fae and humans and it seemed to work into the normal world fairly well The mention of an 'I heart symbol Avalon' shirt was particularly amusing in a small wayDana's mom Cathy Her drunkenness was interesting to me and while I can't say whether it was accurate or not it made her an interesting characterAunt Grace So she's not exactly one of the 'good guys'; so what She and Lachlan intrigued me than other central charactersKimber Who Dana really really really needs to listen to Girl's smart and if she's got a chip on her shoulder when it comes to her brother it's justifiableFinn Mostly for 'stabbed shot etcetera etcetera' comments Has a kind of dry stoic humor that made him undeniably coolDidn't like ETHAN For me he was one of those characters I'd cheerfully push off a cliff Maybe it's because I read a review of Hush Hush that mentioned the 'romantic lead' and his near rapist tendencies but I saw a lot of that in Ethan He seems like Black is trying to make him an unwilling tool in his father's plots but really he seems pretty complicit to me And can you say Stu Magically powerful beyond hot from a wealthy family and saves heroine multiple times My favorite Ethan moment When Dana dumped coffee on himDana's instant attraction to anything male fae and not her father GOOD GRIEF girl are they exuding pheromones or something Okay so this is entirely possible But Ethan Finn and Keane is a bit muchThe ending's little 'zOMG DANA IS SPESHUL SNOWFLAEK' thingamabob If this 'twist' turns out to be typical in later books I will be placated We don't know that much about Faeriewalkers at this point so it's possible that it'll be negated But if she has to be special let's not make her beyond special okayLet's see of Alistair His physical description the one time he showed up was interesting and we didn't meet too many Unseelie; if he's prominent in the seuels that I assume are in the works I'll be happierFaerie Dana needs to visit it Fer seriousBottom lineI would read at least one seuelI would reccomend this to genre fans onlyI'd probably not re read this one anytime soon

GlimmerglassIt's all she's ever wanted to be but it couldn't be further from her graspDana 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 magi. Well I couldn’t put off the inevitable any longer and had to finish this book But don’t get me wrong it was not like I had to force myself to continue reading because it was so bad No it was very much the opposite I enjoyed this book so much that I actually tried to read slowly than usual because I didn’t want the story to end I tried to only read 5 pages a day like a certain heroine in one of the books I’m currently reading does but I just couldn’t pull it off I am an addict after allI know there are a lot of people who might object but for me this book had it all A gripping plot cute romance and lots of endearing charactersOk I admit that the idea of Avalon being on top of a mountain in the middle of Great Britain is a tad bit ridiculous but apart from that I really liked the world Black created in her novel As for the characters they were just great I liked the heroine Dana instantly and could easily relate to her Kimber and Finn were fun and grew on me almost immediatelyDespite some initial imagination issues thanks to some discussions with my goodreads friends I was imagining Ethan to look like this and Keane to look like this I found the guys in this book exactly to my taste A cocky player and an arrogant bad boy who both might not be so bad after all I am aware that the fact that both guys are basically jerks might reflect badly on my partner choice in general but that’s beside the point And for the record I’m on team Keane the eye candy with the bad attitude ; I am not a master of verbalizations so I will conclude by saying that Glimmerglass was a very enjoyable read wrapped up nicely and leaves me looking forward to its seuel Definitely a promising new series
