LoveReading View on Sea Glass

Beautiful, sweeping fantasy, the second book in the second series to feature Opal Cowan whose magic allows her to create glass that can carry thoughts, trap storms, even steal another’s powers.  Following ‘Storm Glass’ Opal’s journey of learning continues as she must prevent her enemies gaining control of her powers and choose between the two men, so different in their ways, whom she could love.  Exciting and compelling, I can’t wait for the third.

Sea Glass Synopsis

New York Times bestselling author Maria V. Snyder brings readers into a world of molten magic, excitement and adventure. Student glass magician Opal Cowan's newfound ability to steal a magician's powers makes her too powerful. Ordered to house arrest, Opal dares defy her imprisonment, travelling to the Moon Clan's lands in search of Ulrick, the man she thinks she loves. Thinks because she is sure another man - now her prisoner - has switched souls with Ulrick. In hostile territory, without proof or allies, Opal isn't sure whom to trust. She can't forget Kade, the handsome Stormdancer who doesn't want to let her get close. And now everyone is after Opal's special powers for their own deadly gain.
