Glass Faerie by Rachel Morgan

Thrown into a world of magic she knows nothing about, seventeen-year-old Emerson must figure out how to control the deadly power she is suddenly in possession of—before someone else controls it for her.

**I received an ARC of this book in exchange for an honest review.**

We didn’t get much from the blurb, but Glass Faerie is out tomorrow!!! Go Emerson!

Edit – post release synopsis:

Emerson Clarke: Sarcastic. Independent. Possibly losing her mind.

Because that’s the only explanation for why she occasionally sees things that aren’t there, right? But one night, an impossible power erupts from her, and Em realizes the truth is crazier than she ever thought: she isn’t losing her mind; she’s magical. 

Thrown into an entirely new world of faeries, enchantments—and the annoying guy from down the road who, it turns out, isn’t human either—Em barely has time to learn even the most basic of magic before another startling truth reveals itself: she has a Griffin Ability. A special kind of magic feared by most fae. Now she’s at the top of everyone’s most-wanted list—including the mysterious glass faerie carrying out random attacks on fae.

In this magical and terrifying world that she’s entirely unprepared for, Em must try to figure out who she really is, whom to trust, and how to stay alive long enough to get back to her normal life.

As always, there’s something captivating about Rachel’s books. Whether or not there’s even a plot, you just get sucked into the story and characters… It’s pretty amazing.

Emerson is kinda like Nate – super powerful with no idea who she is. And her Griffin Ability? Wow. Just wow. That girl is a force of nature. I really enjoy how all of the main characters in this series are emotionally closed off and dont trust easily, because of their bad experiences in the past. They’re different from many other heroines and I find them more relatable.

That ending… Guys, be warned. Cliffy alert! I dont know if I can wait long enough for the next book. Seriously, Rachel? How could you do this to me?

One problem I had with this is that it was waaay too short. I don’t just mean that time flies when you’re reading it. Glass Faerie is a little bit shorter than the other books, and let’s be honest – we all want more.

Also, there’s the fact that compared to the other books in the series, there was barely any plot. Most of the book went by in dialogue. That’s nice, but I really wish we got to see some more of Emerson’s monologue so we could get to know her a bit better as a character.

Actually, Glass Faerie is not my favorite book of the series (A Faerie’s Secret is still my fave), but it was still a good reads for us fans.
