On My Wish List (12)

On My Wishlist is hosted weekly by Book Chick City. Bloggers spotlight books we have on our wishlists. Books we really want to read but haven't had the chance to purchase yet. Old books, new books, un-released books, so long as we plan to buy them. A Mr. Linky is provided so we can keep up with each others selections each week.

I generally choose three books a week, sometimes related or in a series, common themes, etc. and sometimes not. This week: another series! The Glass series by Maria V. Snyder.

Storm Glass (Glass series - Book 1) by Maria V. Snyder

A glassmaker and a magician-in-training, Opal Cowen understands trial by fire. Now it's time to test her mettle. Someone has sabotaged the Stormdancer's clan's glass orbs, killing their most powerful magician's. The Stormdancers - particularly the mysterious and mercurial Kade - require Opal's unique talents to prevent it happening again. But when the mission goes awry, Opal must tap into a new kind of magic as stunningly potent as it is frightening. And the further she delves into the intrigue behind the glass and magic, the more distorted things appear. With lives hanging in the balance - including her own - Opal must control powers she hadn't known she possessed... powers that might lead to disaster beyond anything she's ever known.

Sea Glass (Glass series - Book 2) by Maria V. Snyder

Student glass magician Opal Cowen's newfound ability to steal a magician's powers makes her to powerful. Ordered to house arrest by the council, Opal dares to defy them, traveling 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 of 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...

Spy Glass (Glass series - Book 3) by Maria V. Snyder

After siphoning her own blood magic in the showdown at Hubal, Opal Cowen has lost her powers. She can no longer create glass magic. More, she's immune to the effects of magic. Opal is now an outsider looking in, spying through the glass on those with the powers she once had, powers that make a difference in the world.

Until spying through the glass becomes her new power. Suddenly, the beautiful pieces she makes flash in the presence of magic. And then she discovers that someone has stolen some of her blood - and that finding it might let her regain her powers. Or learn if they're lost forever...
