Glass Book 1

Storm Glass by Maria V Snyder 

Seeing The Light!

Opal has a skill with glass, it is a unique magical ability that only she possesses, unfortunately it also happens to be the only magical ability she possesses. The past four years at the Magician's Keep have not been easy for Opal, with little other skill and no friends it has been a hard and lonely time.

Now in her fifth year, Opal has been asked to undertake a mission for the Master Magicians, a mission only she can fulfill as it relates to glass, her magical speciality. But one seemingly straightforward mission soon turns into so much more as events begin to unfold and deceptions are played out. Opal is in more danger then she realises, but with so much going on can she discover the truth in time to save herself and those she loves?

Storm Glass is not your typical magical girl story, there is a realness to this story that is immediately evident through the history and culture of the land as well as the personal back-stories of the characters. This is not a simple story of one quest leading to a simple outcome, but will instead set of a chain reaction of events so complex and strategic that it will leave you hooked, wondering to the very end. A brilliant new series that is every bit as complex as it is engaging.
