THE GLASS QUEEN is the second installment in Gena Showalter’s The Forest of Good and Evil. If you don’t know already, this entire series is based on fairy tales, so I was quite interested to see how this new book would pan out.
As you can expect with this title, it’s all about Cinderella. I feel like this fairy tale is quite popular amongst Young Adult Fantasy readers, so it’s no surprise to see Showalter putting her own twist on things. I enjoyed this book more than the first in the series. It reminded me a lot of Marissa Meyer’s Lunar Chronicles series, which is one of my all-time favorite YA series. So if you enjoyed that series, I have no doubt that you’ll enjoy this one too.
Although this is a YA book, I enjoyed the fact that Showalter doesn’t change her writing style very much. It’s eloquent and quite complex, which actually makes me really happy. Sometimes, I find that her writing can be a little choppy, but this one worked for me. I didn’t love all points of this plot, however. But of course, you can’t love everything. All in all, I think it was something fun and different. I’m looking forward to the next book in the series.
