Plot: 3/5
It’s a Maria V. Snyder book, so it’s got, like, one point straight off the bat. And there was a plot here. It was a’ight. Nowhere near as good or eye-catchy as Poison Study, if you ask me, but it was a good book and I enjoyed it. It just wasn’t extremely exciting.

Characters: 5/5
We saw and interacted with Lief, Yelena and Janco! Ari and Valek were mentioned several times. Thus, I am a happy fangirl.
Also, Opal Cowan: I’m really liking her as an MC. Except for her somewhat unfortunate romance choices.
Pazia: I really sort of hope that she and Opal become good friends, not sure if it’ll happen, but I like their dynamic.
Kade: OMG. So attractive.
Ulrich: WHAT does she see in this guy? Like, seriously, what? He’s boring, unattractive, predictable, and likely to become a villain So, I ask you, why?
Devlen: Heh, heh, heh. Wow, Opal. What happened here him being your first time, though you didn’t know it at the time must suck so bad. And if there is Not some kind of trauma involved there, well, I don’t where you can get trauma.

Ze Romance: 5/5
Three romantic interests. Two of them are good. One of them is my favorite. If you an guess which one is my favorite, than you must know me pretty well. Or maybe you just guessed. Either way, I love him. He’s my fave.

Not as good as Poison Study, but still quite enjoyable.

I got interrupted a lot while I was reading this, so I didn't really get into it. OK but not really engaging enough for me. The fantasy world was very creative but I had problems with her rather clunky dialogue. ( )

A word of advice: "don't start reading storm glass in the afternoon, or you won't sleep until you finish it." ( )

This is a spin-off from Snyder's Study series. Opal is a glass magician in her final year of training and her unique skills are needed to save the magicians of the Stormdancer clan. Besides being a high-spirited adventure and mystery, it's also a coming-of-age story, as Opal needs to find self-belief and accept and embrace her talents and as well as her limitations. ( )

This is is the first book in the Glass trilogy and is a really enjoyable read - interesting plot and characters, magic, intrigue and lots of action. Synder has created a rich, colourful and believable world and her descriptions of glass blowing are fascinating.

Opal is an intriguing character who lacks confidence in her own abilities. The reader watches her evolve throughout the book as she gradually overcomes her vulnerability to reach her full potential through perseverance and determination. She is supported by a number of interesting characters including Kade, Ulrich, Zitora and Devlen. This should be a popular series for a variety of readers. ( )

Book description
As a glassmaker and a magician-in-training, Opal Cowen understands trial by fire. Now it’s time to test her mettle. Someone has sabotaged the Stormdancer clan’s glass orbs, killing their most powerful magicians. The Stormdancers—particularly the mysterious and mercurial Kade—require Opal’s unique talents to prevent it happening again. But when the mission goes awry, Opal must tap into a new kind of magic as stunningly potent as it is frightening. And the further she delves into the intrigue behind the glass and magic, the more distorted things appear. With lives hanging in the balance—including her own—Opal must control powers she never knew she possessed...powers that might lead to disaster beyond anything she’s ever known.
