Reviews for Glass Heart
Charming, Whimsical and Dark
When I finished Cold Kiss, and wiped all my tears away, I imagined that Wren and Gabriel had a sweet "happily ever after". But considering that Wren is a witch with unharnessed powers and Gabriel is psychic, I suppose I should have known better. Wren is happy with Gabriel, slowly and surely falling in love with the boy who supported her when she needed to save herself. But the pull of her magic is strong. Wren has the ability that few witches her age have experienced. Wren's power worries Gabriel. That and his hesitation to reveal pieces of his past has Wren frustrated and more than happy to find friends who share her power. But magic demands a price, and Gabe may be the one to pay up.
Amy Garvey has the most masterful way with words. Her words flow in such a lyrical, striking, poetic manner that they feel like a punch in the soul. I believe that she could make even the most mundane of stories sound whimsical and gripping. I'm just simply in awe of her style.
Cold Kiss is one of my favorite books. So I should say that I had (maybe unreasonably) high expectations for Glass Heart. I did enjoy the story. It was very nicely written, but there just wasn't a hook that I felt pulled me inside the story. The bulk of Glass Heart is the forging of a solid, enduring relationship for Wren and Gabriel, which gives natural drama, but it wasn't all that exciting. There was a lot of back and forth between the two, fighting and making up. I enjoyed it, because I love the writing and I love the characters, but I could see how other readers might feel a bit frustrated.
Glass Heart is by turns charming and whimsical, yet dark and twisty. And though it doesn't share the same desperate intensity, it's a book Cold Kiss fans will enjoy. by Andrea Thompson
