Magic Under Glass had some interesting characters. I didn’t know what to expect reading this book but I found myself thoroughly entertained with the originality of Magic Under Glass. Dolamore had no problems grasping my attention - Doomed love always seems to pull at my heart strings. Nimira is looked down upon in Lorinar with her dark skin and occupation as a trouser girl, but back in her country she would have been viewed with high esteem for her singing and dancing. So, her disadvantage in succeeding in Lorinar and breaking Erris, the fairy prince’s curse only made this novel more compelling with all the odds seemingly stacked up against her.
I was quite surprised with the unexpected ending of Magic Under Glass and I’m assuming it was left open for a sequel. I would love to see what adventures Nimira will have to in the light of everything they’ve been through.
Magic Under Glass is exquisitely written with a great mix of magic, romance, and suspense that is sure to appeal to readers of any age.
