My Feelings:

It’s all she’s ever wanted to be, but it couldn’t be further from her grasp…
Dana Hathaway doesn’t know it yet, but she’s in big trouble. When her alcoholic mom shows up at her voice recital drunk, again, Dana decides she’s had enough and runs away to find her mysterious father in Avalon: the only place on Earth where the regular, everyday world and the captivating, magical world of Faerie intersect. But from the moment Dana sets foot in Avalon, everything goes wrong, for it turns out she isn't just an ordinary teenage girl—she's a Faeriewalker, a rare individual who can travel between both worlds, and the only person who can bring magic into the human world and technology into Faerie.
Soon, Dana finds herself tangled up in a cutthroat game of Fae politics. Someone's trying to kill her, and everyone seems to want something from her, from her newfound friends and family to Ethan, the hot Fae guy Dana figures she’ll never have a chance with… until she does. Caught between two worlds, Dana isn’t sure where she’ll ever fit in and who can be trusted, not to mention if her world will ever be normal again…

My Review:
I absolutely loved Glimmerglass and therefore I say it loud and clear if the second book in the Faeriewalker is as good as the first one, it will become my absolute favourite series EVER.

I liked Dana’s character. She is independent, fierce and at times very na├»ve. Her decisions where not always thought trough, but that made her a realistic character and one I can relate too. I liked the other characters too, but as Dana I had a hard time figuring them out and if they truly where good or not.
Aunt Grace reminded me of Nicole Kidman in The Golden Compass, I thought all the characters including Dana where just misjudging here. But then her real personality came out and I was shocked to know the truth.

The plot, what can I say about the plot other than it’s totally addictive. Once you step on the ride, you don’t want to get off. There’s a bit of romance there, and it looks like that in the next book there will be a love triangle. At this moment I probably go for the bad boy Keane. Sorry Ethan, but some of you actions where a bit off.

Glimmerglass is a book you should get. With it I found a new favourite series and new favourite author. I definitely recommend you all to read it.

So glad to hear that you enjoyed this one! I've had a copy sitting on my shelf for awhile, but I haven't gotten around to reading it yet. The cover is gorgeous too!

I definitely have to go find this book! Quite regret that I didn't grab it the time I saw it couple of months back though =( Seriously hope that this is the book that will make me fall in love with faeries!

Sounds good! I would love to be swept away by a faerie book, because it has not happened so far but there is a time for everything

Wow, this sounds great! Kind of reminds me of Wicked Lovely by Melissa Marr, have you read that?
