I am on a roll with catching up on my reading stack. It seems every time I get to take a book off the stack, I add three more! But here we are…and boy did I LOVE this one. So go order it – right now (you can order it here!)
People in the town of Deer Park, Texas are vanishing. There is a strange museum, known as Quinsey Wolfe’s Glass Vault, that appears overnight. Perrie Madeline’s best friend and ex-boyfriend are among the missing. Perrie and her friend August go on a pursuit for them in the mysterious museum. Could the elusive Quinsey Wolfe’s Glass Vault have anything to do with the disappearances?
Quinsey Wolfe’s Glass Vault is the start of a thrilling duology full of magic, danger, and romance.
Let me just start off saying this gets five BIG stars. I finished this in less than 24 hours – and I haven’t done that in a while. This book really surprised me – I am going to be honest. I don’t read a lot of horror (recently started reading more during the past 1-2 years). It was definitely dark (which I love), but the thriller part was spectacularly done and I didn’t even mind the gore (it wasn’t over the top/unbelievable).
First person narrative and tense used were unique, but you fall right into the story with realistic characters and banter/dialogue that feels young and fresh. Also, I desperately want to start wearing eye patches just to wear them (and paint/create colorful designs on them). Maisie was a fantastic character – and I think I need her in my life. I can be a bit harsh on reading/reviewing fairytale retellings – but this one had a lot of unique ones not the typical ones – and some bad ass descriptions/suspense that just had me on the edge of my seat (well – couch, where I practically sat for most of the day reading this with my cat Vincent lol). I seriously cannot wait for book 2. I had an suspicion that someone was bad about ¾ of the way through, but didn’t want that person to be, but they were – oh my! THAT ENDING *insert shock face*. I don’t think I can recommend this book enough. Also, it’s set in Texas (yeah, Texas!), so that made this Texas girl happy!
