The Glass Spare by Lauren DeStefano


Book Summary:

A banished princess.
A deadly curse.
A kingdom at war.

Wil Heidle, the only daughter of the king of the world’s wealthiest nation, has grown up in the shadows. Kept hidden from the world in order to serve as a spy for her father–whose obsession with building his empire is causing a war–Wil wants nothing more than to explore the world beyond her kingdom, if only her father would give her the chance.

Until one night Wil is attacked, and she discovers a dangerous secret. Her touch turns people into gemstone. At first Wil is horrified–but as she tests its limits, she’s drawn more and more to the strange and volatile ability. When it leads to tragedy, Wil is forced to face the destructive power within her and finally leave her home to seek the truth and a cure.

But finding the key to her redemption puts her in the path of a cursed prince who has his own ideas for what to do with her power.

With a world on the brink of war and a power of ultimate destruction, can Wil find a way to help the kingdom that’s turned its back on her, or will she betray her past and her family forever?

My Review:

This book was an good start to an new fantasy fun. Some parts may be slow at times but it’s still world building. So looking forward to reading the second book and know how this story would end for our hero. Like the idea of princess that can turn anything into glass, her family all accept her but her father. As she grows throughout the book can to mange to save her kingdom and rekindle with her family? The ending leaves you with tons more questions, hope book two we have some answers. The cover of  the book what draws me in an kingdom almost turn to glass. Wonder how powerful our main princess will get later down the road. This book just recent release. So you into some fantasy with little romance then you might enjoy this read. Happy Reading!
