Book Review: Quinsey Wolfe’s Glass Vault by Candace Robinson

Posted on

After reading/reviewing a book co-written by Candace Robinson earlier this year, I immediately added another of her independently written books, Quinsey Wolfe’s Glass Vault, to my summer reading queue. Mid-way through the book, I learned it’s a series and book two will be coming out in about a week (8/17/18). One thing’s for sure… Robinson is fantastic at writing YA/NA characters and story lines that appeal to a wide variety of reader types. I’m not normally a fantasy reader, but this is a prime example of why I could love the genre. From wicked twists on fairy tales to utterly shocking characters, I’m all in for the series!

The debut in this series starts off rather quiet. A few people are missing, but no one’s super worried. Best friends Maisie and Perrie are in their own world about to graduate from high school. Perrie’s angry with her former boyfriend for doing something and she’s now making googly eyes at a new boy named August. Suddenly, people they know begin to disappear, including some from their own small group. At the same time, a mysterious museum pops up, but it’s made of stone and couldn’t just appear out of no where, could it? When Perrie finally gets into the building, everything changes. Imagine large snow globe-like glass objects with cute little scenes… imagine being inside them and meeting people you thought were only fictional characters! So… that’s all I will say as even that might be considered a bit of a spoiler, but in my opinion, that’s the exact reason why someone will pick up the book.

Effortless reading. It’s not quite a suspenseful thriller as much as it is an immersive must-read to understand what’s happening type of book. The rules aren’t clear yet, but we know from the prologue, there’s evil lurking somewhere inside someone — we just don’t know who it is. You’ll be drawn in from the beginning. You’ll care more about the story and the plot than the characters, as to me, this is all about how’s it gonna turn out? A fairy tale ending or complete and crazy destruction? Robinson’s writing style is strong and I wholeheartedly recommend diving into this book. I’ve already secured a copy of the second book and I will be reading it next month. Care to join?

    I need to read the first one before getting the second. Based on your review, I think I will really enjoy this one. I like easy reads that flow and are enjoyable over a period of time.
