MY REVIEW, 5 stars:
Let me just start by saying that this book has my favorite ending of any book in this genre that I’ve read. You always expect the heroics, the twisty and compelling yet conquering satisfaction. This ending was more fitting for the entire storyline than the expected could ever be. It just fit, and it’s powerful and shocking and leaves you with this particular taste of ‘oh my Gawwwwd’ in your mouth.
Seriously, I have quite the list of reviews that I’m absolutely behind on, and I’m totally going to bump them all out (even more lol) so that I can read book 2 of the Glass Vault duology – like right freaking now. THAT is how good the ending was!
Now, lets get to the actual review: Perrie Madiline is a high school girl with a boyfriend who recently betrayed her and broke her heart into a thousand pieces. She has the coolest cousin/bestie ever. I absolutely love Maisie, she’s fun and quirky and unique and by far my favorite character in the entire book. Especially when she’s sucked into the altered, twisted and dark realm of Snow White. She’s phenomenal. Perrie also has a runner up best friend, August. He’s there for her when she needs it most, always staying by her side, protecting her, and pulling at her heart strings. To the point where her emotions are getting a bit on the confusing side and she isn’t sure if she should still be feeling the emotional confusion for her ex – or if she should follow this pull toward August.
There have been several disappearances in the area, so when an ancient looking building appears out of no where, it’s even more hair raising than it normally would have been.
Perrie and her two closest comraderies are clearly curious. One thing leads to another and they all find themselves sucked into the dark underworld that is everything Quincey and his Glass Vault. Perrie and August willingly enter the building as their looking for their lost friends. There are lots of halls and no exits. They come upon glass displays that are twisted renditions of famous tellings like Sleepy Hollow, Jack the Ripper, Trolls on the bridge and even some princess fairy tells gone horribly wrong. The displays are very detailed and disturbing, and little do they know they’re about to be sucked right into the realms of these tellings. Kind of like satins little playground for bouncing to individualized worst nightmares. If Elm Street would have been on the docket I may have never recovered.
Perrie and August find ways through the barriers in these horrible places as they search for their missing friends, and while trying her best to stay alive her feelings for him increase. From cover to cover it’s the perfect blend of creepy, shock, romance and memorable twists. 5 stars and I can’t wait to report on book 2!!
