When Dana's mom shows up at her recital drunk, she knows that her life is over as she knows it. She is done with taking care of her mom and moving around. She decides that it is time to find her father that lives in Avalon. Avalon is the only place on Earth, where Faeries and the human world collide. Dana is not a normal girl, she is a Faeriewalker, a rare person that can travel in both realms and can bring magic to the human world and technology into Faerie. This causes her to be thrown in the cutthroat game of Fae politics. Also, someone wants her dead, while others want to use her power. Her mom doesn't sound so horrible now and she would do anything to get home. Both her friends and enemies want her to stay. There is also Ethan, who she is not sure if he even really notices her.
Dana is a very strong character. I liked how she was so determined to find the best for her. She also was very mature. Ethan was very sweet and kind. I liked how he was protective of both Dana and his sister Kimber. I really loved Kimber's attitude and how she was so ruthless. The plot was very fast and entertaining. I really liked how the world was built around Avalon and how important it was. Also, that everyone knew about Avalon and faeries. What it lacked in originality, it made up for in gorgeous writing and strong characters. Black made sure that Dana had a powerful voice. Glimmerglass reminded me a lot of Need by Carrie Jones, which I loved. I am really excited to see how this series will go and I think that it is a great addition to Urban Fantasy. Seriously, I would check out this book soon.
