Book Review: The Glass Man by Jocelyn Adams

Published April 12, 2012 by LS Murphy

Synopsis: Lila Gray is just a human—at least that’s her mantra when she accidentally topples a building or bends a paranoid local’s gun into modern art. That she can sense and control the minds around her doesn’t prove anything, either. Unwilling to put others at risk, she hides in the wilderness from the beautiful creature who hunts her, one who sees her as his ultimate prize.

Alone, the egocentric Glass Man can kill with a thought. Mated with Lila, he’s a supernatural weapon prepared to annihilate the humans he loathes.

Caught in the Glass Man’s latest scheme, Lila is plunged into a hidden fae realm, faced with a secret birthright and a forbidden romance.

With the Glass Man threatening everyone she loves, can Lila accept who she is in time to end his bloody reign? Or will she succumb to his dark power and become the vehicle of destruction for the human race?

The Cover: There is something cold about this image with all the blues and it suits the title well. Glass is usually cold to the touch. I really like it.

The First Line: “I plunged my knife into a log and pried against the bark, hoping for a squirming morsel to quiet my rumbling stomach.” If you want to write a novel, this is how you start one off. Instantly I know that the MC is a survivor and that she’s not afraid to do whatever it takes.

The Good: Lila Gray is a well-rounded character who isn’t going to take much crap from anyone. I loved her instantly. As her journey unfolds, she never loses who she is even as she’s discovering more about her family. Lila’s strengths really drive this book.

The Glass Man is creeptastic. I love a great villain and he qualifies as one of the better ones I’ve read lately. There is no doubt that this man is pure evil. It’s refreshing.

The Bad: I only had one problem with this book and it’s at the end. Soooooo I’ll keep that to myself. Don’t want to spoil it for anyone. 🙂

Recommendation: If you like paranormal romance with a lot of heat, then give The Glass Man a go.
