You know, I more or less forgave this series for its opening two books wherein the main character Rani was a little too passive for my taste as far as her ability to move the narrative by acting instead of being acted upon. In the third book, she picks up some agency and actually tries to take action on her (somewhat tiresome) fixation on restoring her guild.

But all that good will was completely destroyed by the author's inexplicable decision to involve BOTH of her main characters in relationshi

I don't think this book was a strong as the others in the series. The last book switched between points of view, but it felt clumsy this time rather than purposeful. The storyline wrapped up too neatly for my liking -- it was just too coincidental that Hal will be able to get everything he needs and not have any real consequences of his actions. I also seriously hope that Crestman is not a slave for the remainder of this series because he has sacrificed too much to be reduced to that. Honestly, ...more

I finished Glasswrights' Journeyman, the third book in Mindy L. Klasky's Glasswrights series about a week ago, but then got sidetracked by a convention before I had a chance to sit down and write up my review. The good news is that the book is still firmly in memory, which is a sign of how good this book is. I though the first book in this series was good. The second one suffered from the fabled "second book syndrome" in my opinion, dropping down a notch, but this third book not only recovers fr ...more

After a fire decimates the capitol city, Rani and Hal travel to a foreign nation to look for the money to rebuild. They also hope to find a way to free the enslaved members of the Little Army. Hal courts a foreign princess, determined to do what it takes to help his people. But it seems as if he may have reason to regret trusting a member of the spider guild, even considering how the book turns out.

This is the first novel in the series where it really feels like Rani's desire to rebuild her guil

The Glasswrights' Journeyman is the third book in Mindy L. Klasky's Glasswrights' Guild series, featuring smart and resourceful heroine Rani Trader.

It's been three years since glasswright apprentice Rani Trader saved hundreds of children from the evil Sin Hazar in The Glasswrights' Progress. Now at the age of 18, Rani is more than ready to rebuild her beloved guild from the ground up, especially considering her guild was destroyed and disbanded years ago after King Hal's brother was assassinated

ook #3 in the Glasswright series. In Glasswrights' Progress I felt that we see how caught up in the tide Rani's life can be. She is human and prone to mistakes. In the Glasswrights' Journeyman I felt that now Hal and his doubts about himself and his choices as king are brought to light. But both of them have the interests of Morenia at heart, and have to make sacrifices for the greater good. Both now have a huge influence on the future of their country. A fire has decimated much of the city of M ...more

this series is harmlessly boring on a good page, painful to read on a bad, but upstart spider queen mareka octolaris is a fave

It gets worse and worse. In this part, Rani and the young king of Morenia both find a new love interest, although I'm confident that they will love each other in the final book. Let's see if I'm right... . However, there are still aspects and twists in this book I find intriguing and I want to read the other two novels as well to finish the whole series!

oooo .... spiders .... ick.

And yet, reading this series is compulsive! Sacrifice is a recurring theme (no, not human sacrifice to the spiders -- yuk!) -- but personal sacrifices on Hal and Rani's parts. How much personal sacrifice is "enough" (it's a good question, but it isn't answered here)?

Oops - finished this and forgot to update. Liked this one more than the last but the characters are still rather clueless at times and things that seem like they should be obvious just aren't. But it's still something I'd recommend. :)

I was so disappointed by Hal's behavior. I thought he was really smart and thought things through but this book he was hasty and really didn't know what to do.

I honestly wanted to MURDER the main character by then end of this book. Love the overall story. But she is such a bitch.
