NYIA our TEEN BOOK REVIEWER is a guest book reviewer today!

Glimmerglass (Faeriewalker, Book 1)by Jenna Black review by NYIA

Book Synopsis:Dana Hathaway doesn’t know it yet, but she’s in big trouble. When her alcoholic mom shows up at her voice recital drunk, again, Dana decides she’s had enough and runs away to find her mysterious father in Avalon: the only place on Earth where the regular, everyday world and the captivating, magical world of Faerie intersect. But from the moment Dana sets foot in Avalon, everything goes wrong, for it turns out she isn't just an ordinary teenage girl—she's a Faeriewalker, a rare individual who can travel between both worlds, and the only person who can bring magic into the human world and technology into Faerie.

Soon, Dana finds herself tangled up in a cutthroat game of Fae politics. Someone's trying to kill her, and everyone seems to want something from her, from her newfound friends and family to Ethan, the hot Fae guy Dana figures she’ll never have a chance with… until she does. Caught between two worlds, Dana isn’t sure where she’ll ever fit in and who can be trusted, not to mention if her world will ever be normal again…


I liked this book by Jenna Black, because it was different. It was about politics and stuff, which you don’t see a lot of books being able to make that interesting. The main character Dana was so cool. Even though she was kidnapped, she was still cool and collected. She wasn’t whiny. I also liked her brother and sister they were Fae, and she could connect with them. It was about Dana being the daughter of a powerful sorcerer and everyone wanted a piece of her. Only thing I didn’t like, was the ending. My only frustration was that the character was kinda stupid in some situations. I give it 4 out of 5.

Oh, NYIA, I hate stupid characters too! Especially when they're girls, that just makes me mad.

I've noticed there's a lot of faery books in YA, but I've been looking for MG faery books and haven't found much. Do you know of any?

Thanks for the review! I'm going to put it on my TBR list!

Thanks for the review. I have cover lust over Glimmerglass, so it's on my TBR pile for that reason alone. Glad to hear it's a good story though too. Have you read the Melissa Marr books (Wicked Lovely, etc.?) I loved those and was wondering how these compare.
