88) Spy Glass by Maria V. Snyder

The Blurb -

An undercover mission leads to danger, adventure and an impossible choice. After siphoning her own blood magic in the showdown at Hubal, Opal Cowan has lost her powers. She can no longer create glass magic. More, she's immune to the effects of magic.

Opal is now an outsider looking in, spying through the glass on those with the powers she once had, powers that make a difference in the world. 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 someone has stolen some of her blood - and that finding it might let her regain her powers. Or know it could be they are lost forever.

My Review -

The third and, as far I know, last book in the Glass trilogy is a spectacular read. I have come to expect nothing less from this amazing author who has, over the last couple of years, entertained me with her wonderful books. First I followed Yelena and now I have finished my journey with Opal. What comes next is a surprise but I know it will be good.

I don't want to give too much away because this is a book I know a lot of people have been waiting for. What I will tell you is that all the characters we have come to know and love are all seem to play a part, large or small, in Spy Glass. Readers will be rewarded yet again with a tale full of excitement and mystery. Things are never what they seem in Snyder's land filled with magic but some of the twists in this story are ones you won't see coming.

If you have enjoyed Maria's other books then you can't miss this new installment. I hope that there will be more stories about this wonderful fantasy land because I fear I will miss it. A must read and a series I have been lending and buying for friends and family at all opportunities. I am hooked, they are hooked and I guarantee you will be hooked too.
