Someone or some ones are sabotaging the Stormdancer clan. Their glass orbs are the clan's most powerful weapon against the storms energy. The Stormdancers use the orbs to contain the storm's energy. The problem is that the orbs keep breaking. This is a very bad thing, because for every orb that breaks a Stormdancer dies. The magicians have called a meeting with Opal. They tell Opal that they want her and second magician Zitora Cowan to travel to the Stormdancer clan and help figure out what is causing the orbs to break. It won't be easy as someone is after Opal. Opal will have to dig in deep within herself for the magic that she possess.
When I first heard that Mrs. Snyder was coming out with a new series, I was beyond myself excited. I loved her previous series with Yelena and was sorry when it ended. Maria V. Snyder is the first and only author who has ever truly turned me on to these types of books that incorporated fantasy and magic. I can still remember when I first read Poison Study. I finished the book in a matter of hours. I can also remember experiencing the tragedy when the release date for the next book kept changing. What I really loooooove about Mrs. Snyder's new Glass series is that it features Opal, a minor character from the prior books and allows her to become the main character, so that readers and fans can root for a new heroine. I am sitting on the edge of my seat for the next book..Sea Glass. I agree with Maria and the fact that I too also want to be a Stormdancer. I have one last comment and that is run to your local bookstore and treat yourself to a top rate author and her books!
