Book Review: Magic Under Glass by: Jaclyn Dolamore

Summary: Nimira is a music-hall performer forced to dance for pennies to an audience of leering drunks. When wealthy sorcerer Hollin Parry hires her to do a special act - singing accompaniment to an exquisite piano-playing automaton, Nimira believes it is the start of a new life. In Parry's world, however, buried secrets stir. Unsettling below-stairs rumours abound about ghosts, a mad woman roaming the halls, and of Parry's involvement in a gang of ruthless sorcerers who torture fairies for sport. When Nimira discovers the spirit of a dashing young fairy gentleman is trapped inside the automaton's stiff limbs, waiting for someone to break the curse and set him free, the two fall in love. But it is a love set against a dreadful race against time to save the entire fairy realm, which is in mortal peril.

'Magic Under Glass' is a pretty good book. There is a sensuality to the writing that lures you in and keeps you addicted after each page. The author chooses her words carefully and precisely in order to create a world that you can almost reach out and touch. The characters are awesome and the plot is strong and flowed great. There is a tad bit of "Fallen" syndrome in this book, hence the four stars, but that is the only thing that wasn't great.

  1. This sounds interesting. I think I also like the book cover you have in the post better than the amazon link.
