Description

Fans of Beautiful Creatures will fall head over heels for Glass Heart by Amy Garvey, with its blend of breathless suspense, passionate romance, and magic. In Cold Kiss, Wren Darby learned she had powers strong enough to bring her dead boyfriend back to life. She thought she had to keep these powers a secret from everyone, until she met Gabriel, a mind reader who instantly learned her deepest secret. In the sequel, Glass Heart, Wren is torn between her love for Gabriel and the rush of exploring her powers. When Gabriel warns Wren that her powers are getting out of control, Wren begins spending more time with Bay and Fiona, whose magic is wild, exhilarating--and dangerous. And by the time Wren realizes Gabriel was right, she may already have lost him.show more

Back cover copy

Wren can do things that other people can only dream of. Make it snow on a clear, crisp day. Fly through an abandoned tunnel. Bring a paper bird to life. Wren knows her abilities are tinged with danger--knows how easy it is to lose control--but she can't resist the intoxicating rush. And now that she has Gabriel by her side, someone who knows what she can do--what she has done--she finally feels free to be herself. But as Wren explores the possibilities of her simmering powers, Gabriel starts pushing her away. Telling her to be careful. Telling her to stop. The more he cautions her, the more determined Wren becomes to prove that she can handle things on her own. And by the time she realizes that Gabriel may be right, it could be too late to bring him back to her side.show more

Our customer reviews

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.show more
