As an author and screenwriter, she uses her career as an excuse to read too many books and watch too many movies.Find out more at www.victoriaaveyard.com or follow her on Twitter @VictoriaAveyardshow more

Review quote

There are plenty of twists and turns to keep you on your toes. And a lot more action and re-action. There are shocks and reveals and one massive ending. I mean how can we end where we did? Hopefully we will get the answers soon. But I promise that this is one book you will not want to miss. * Escapes of a Bookworm * 'Glass Sword' is what every sequel should aspire to be. A deeper understanding of a fascinating world, fleshed out characters and an explosive plot * Accio Reviews * Glass Sword ended on such a high note. I think Victoria Aveyard is becoming the queen of plot twists! The set up for the next book looks ridiculously exciting. * Dana and The Books * Grittier than 'Red Queen', but with the same disorientating twists that made the first book such a hit, 'Glass Sword' does not disappoint...Biggest problem? The last page. In dire need of book 3. * Maximum Pop * All the characters are great, and the relationships that Victoria Aveyard builds and breaks between them will have you feeling all the emotions, there is a great mix of action and contemplation that works so terrifically well. * Liz Loves Books * It's high adrenaline stuff...the double-crossing and duplicity is the real loop-the-loop, awesome roller-coaster star attraction. * Sci-Fi Now * 'Fans of Red Queen will not be disappointed. Victoria's writing is fluid, fast and fierce, and the action, suspense and crackling adrenaline woven into the pages of its predecessor aims, pulls the trigger, and hits home in Glass Sword' * GUARDIAN *show more
