The Faceless seek the power found within shadowglass, and Tea is determined to reach it first. But shadowglass is a double-edged sword. While it will grant power, it will also cause corruption and demand sacrifice. Tea’s power will begin to eat away at her sanity and her life. But to Tea, her life is just one more thing to give up in her quest to save those she loves. When she begins to unravel the long told lies of the Asha, she will do everything in her power to bring them to their knees. The world is about to change, but is it for better or for worse?
The magic system in this trilogy is brilliant. While it plays on elemental magic, it takes it to a whole new level. The use of heartsglass and special runic magic puts a creative twist on a favorite. Even after the reader thinks they know everything there is to the magic system, Rin Chupeco throws another twist. The same can be said for the world building, as the history readers have come to know is torn apart and rebuilt.
The Shadow Glass is a dark and thrilling conclusion to a phenomenal series. Rin Chupeco pulls you into the complex relationships they have built with all the characters, tugging on the reader’s heartstrings every chance she can. I could not stop listening to this book. The depth of emotion the narrators Emily Woo and Will Damron added to the characters enhanced the experience. You felt everything Tea experienced and rode the wave of emotions each step of the way. I can’t wait to read more of Rin Chupeco’s books.
