Will Vale prevail?
The Bride of Glass is a mixture of humor, romance, violence, darkness, and hope.
I am going to be up front that I went into this biased. I had read her first one in the series, Quinsey Wolfe’s Glass Vault, which I completely loved so I started this already with warm fuzzy feelings and believing it was going to be a good book. You DEFINITLEY need to read the first before jumping into this or things won’t make sense.
The Bride of Glass is her follow up so we can learn what has happened to Perrie and crew. For a refresher – Perrie’s BFF Maisie stumbled upon a museum in need of staff. When she disappeared after starting her new employment Perrie and another friend August took it upon themselves to find out why.
Our girl Perrie has been effectively put under mind control and ‘married’ off to the Big Bad of this dark fantasy; now the tables have turned and this time Maisie needs to rescue Perrie.
I’ve read a few of Robinson’s works by now and she likes to push the boundaries of what she can do between more lighthearted fare and the darker element that leaves you checking door and window locks. She seems to have a decent grasp of how to create various stories in these genres without resorting to mindless clichés. Particularly in this series she really taps into that Horror element and makes good use of it as your skin will crawl and heart skip beats as you dig into the book.
One of the things I really liked in this sequel is you get more of Maisie who is this adorable character that is just fun to read about.
If I have to register any complaints it’s at the shortness of the story. I love her writing style, her ability to create complex characters and story lines that burrow into your imagination. I was really getting into this and didn’t want to leave especially as her twists had me questioning everything I thought I knew from the first book and made me examine some of the characters differently.
Her style in this one shows she is growing into her talent as a Horror genre author as the edginess and darkness have been amped up but in a good way through some excellent character development. You are treated to an exploration of what it means to be human while examining love, sacrifice and the bounds of friendship.
If you like to test the edge of darkness, then Robinson will surely make your list of Horror authors to watch.
