Product Description

Storm Glass Untrained. Untested. Unleashed.

With her unique magical abilities, Opal has always felt unsure of her place at Sitia’s magic academy. But when the Stormdancer clan needs help, Opal’s knowledge makes her the perfect choice – until the mission goes awry. Pulling her powers in unfamiliar directions, Opal finds herself tapping into a new kind of magic as stunningly potent as it is frightening.

Now Opal must deal with plotters out to destroy the Stormdancer clan, as well as a traitor in their midst. With danger and deception rising around her, will Opal’s untested abilities destroy her – or save them all? Sea Glass Her power remained hidden – until challenged by enemy forces. Student glass magician Opal Cowan’s newfound ability to steal a magician’s powers makes her too powerful.

Ordered to house arrest, Opal dares defy her imprisonment, searching for Ulrick, the man she thinks she loves. Thinks because she is sure another man—now her prisoner—has switched souls with Ulrick. In hostile territory, without proof or allies, Opal isn’t sure whom to trust. And now everyone is after Opal’s special powers for their own deadly gain… Spy Glass An undercover mission leads to danger, adventure and an impossible choice…

After siphoning her own blood magic, Opal Cowan has lost her powers and is now immune to the effects of magic. Now an outsider looking in, Opal spies through the glass on those with the powers she once had. Until spying through the glass becomes her new power.

Suddenly, the beautiful pieces she makes flash in the presence of magic. And then she discovers that some of her blood has been stolen – and that finding it may help her regain her powers for good…

5.0 out of 5 stars Another brilliant yarn 29 Nov 2013
By Kysumu
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
Loved the previous series and had no hesitation buying this one. Using Opal as the central character was an interesting evolution form having Yelena as the heroine. Although the storyline was gripping and kept me wanting to read the next chapter and the next chapter....there was a bit of a theme evolving which which got a bit repetirious at times. Opal falls for a guy, guy abuses her, Opal vows never to do it again, Opal falls for another guy, guy abuses her....... Still a great read though and I'd still recommend it.

In the last few years many fantasy authors have used the genre to bring up modern issues in a neutral and flexible context. Snyder drinks in this tradition, it talks about sibling rivalry, parental preferences, bullying and soulmate seeking. Things many of us could identify with, but hey this is fantasy so a a lot of other cool things happen, like magic fights, stormchasing, spying and even glass making (magic glass of course).
Very fast paced ( maybe too fast paced at times), the author has knitted a new fantasy world and has made an effort to weave it tightly with the previous Study trilogy. The Glass collection may appeal to a slightly younger public, and is less bold in violence than its predecessor. No point on buying the books separatedly, the collection reads far better as a continuous series of chapters than as three separate books. Recomended!
