All Just Glass

All Just GlassAll Just Glass by Amelia Atwater-Rhodes

My rating: 4 of 5 stars

ALL JUST GLASS was a sequel long overdue.

I've been waiting and waiting to see what happened next after Sarah was turned into a vampire in SHATTERED MIRROR. There were too many loose ends that Miss Amelia didn't tie up. Now, I am satisfied. This is an ending. I was very happy with the emotional play that was presented from several view points. My favorite was in Adia's. It was nice to see how the older sister was dealing with this taboo of the greatest kind in her kin. The action was non-stop and very rewarding. I was transported back to my sophomore year when I first read this book. It was pure nostalgia for me. I missed the Den of Shadows and it's characters. Why Amelia hadn't continued on was beyond me. Though I have to say HAWKSONG is my favorite out of all of her books.

The only thing that didn't suit well with me was the romance portion. It was hard to glean any sort of feelings other than confusion from Sarah. I feel like she wants to be with Nikolas more than Kristopher, but she doesn't want to hurt his feelings. I don't think she realizes this herself though. It was also refreshing however, to not have the romantic relationship in the story predominant over the rest of the plot. It was there, right under the surface. But I felt that a little more clarity would have been better. Some things other than the romance portion were left unended though. Which fit in a way. This is only 24 hours. But I would have liked to see a nice, tidy conclusion. Unless she plans on doing more of course. But for now, I am sated. ALL JUST GLASS is good enough and that's all I can ask for.
