The World between Mortals and Fae

My headache has been building up for days, I think its because of my late night rendezvous with books. You would think that would stop me from reading but nope.

So yesterday I got around to reading Jenna Black’s Glimmerglass (No clue? Read the insert from Goodreads below).

The story takes place in a world where the existence of Fae and magic has already been established. There aren’t a lot of characters to muddle up the plot.

While I was reading, I thought, Dana Hathaway has a good head on her shoulders. A responsible adult in a teenage body. She could have been more angrier at a few instances but that could have been me. My actions are mostly based on my emotions rather than logical thinking (no matter how much I would like to think otherwise).

I can’t decide whether I like her father, Seamus, or not as of yet. I distrusted him when he first appeared but he does give off a bit of a father feeling. I am going to hold off judgement on him.

Possible love interests are two: Ethan (the playboy) and Keane (the bad boy). I lean more towards Keane, not because of the bad boy allure. I find it easier to trust a person who is openly hostile than a person who is overly friendly right off the first meeting (maybe I really do have trust issues).

Maybe because I read two of Jenna Black’s books at close proximity, I realized something. Nikki Glass from Dark Descendant and Dana Hathaway from this book, have bleeding hearts. They seem worried and remorseful about hurting someone. I mean if I were in their shoes, I would have hurt the opponent and not think twice about it (not that Pixies hurt people, we don’t, I’m just saying).

I definitely enjoyed Glimmerglass more than Dark Descendants. I think I’ll rate this book three point five stars out of five and go on to read the next one. I am intrigued as to what happened to Dana.


Goodreads Insert:
It’s all she’s ever wanted to be, but it couldn’t be further from her grasp…

Dana 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, magical world of Faerie intersect. But from the moment Dana sets foot in Avalon, everything goes wrong, for it turns out she isn’t just an ordinary teenage girl, she’s a Faeriewalker, a rare individual who can travel between both worlds, and the only person who can bring magic into the human world and technology into Faerie.

Dana finds herself tangled up in a cutthroat game of Fae politics. Someone’s trying to kill her, and everyone seems to want something from her, from her new-found friends and family to Ethan, the hot Fae guy Dana figures she’ll never have a chance with… until she does. Caught between two worlds, Dana isn’t sure where she’ll ever fit in and who can be trusted, not to mention if her world will ever be normal again.
