I was hoping the series would end on a high note, but this book didn't really work for me. A new, unlikeable character got a lot of attention at the expense of ongoing storylines. Once again, the whole glasswright thing was mostly shoved into the background.

And about the series as a whole, I kept finding it really hard to connect with Rani. She made a lot of harsh decisions, and then she'd sit around feeling guilty while others dealt with the actual repercussions. Her unwillingness to really com

The Glasswrights' Master is the final book in the Glasswrights series by Mindy L. Klasky. I've read the four previous books and enjoyed them on various levels. Some were better than others, of course. My favorite in the series is probably the third book, with its unique land and culture and the solidity of its plot. All five book deal with the story of Ranita Glasswright, with her starting as an apprentice in the guild before it is destroyed. Rani attempts to continue her studies throughout the ...more

Decent ending to a very lacking series. The whole Royal Pilgrim storyline did not end the way I expected and I thought the conclusion of that plot line was mediocre at best. I'm really disappointed with the way Mair's character arc concluded. I think that she could have still been grieving and angry and killed Crestman without her going insane and hurting herself in the process. I feel like we missed out on too much of Crestman's life to understand why he was so hell bent on actually following a ...more

I kept reading this series because I was looking at it as a whole - expecting the end of the series to have pay off that made the I-really-want-to-slap-her'ness of books 2-4 worth it.

Well, it didn't. Actually, it made it worse. Talk about horrilbe life and second fiddle and being "loved" because you are the go-to-fix-it girl for a weak king.

I'd had so much hope for these series during book one - the worldbuilding was interesting and I really had thought we were going to take a fantasy walk down

I was disappointed in this series. I thought it worth a try since I liked a different series the author wrote (well...sort of liked). And I'm a sucker for all things fantasy. I literally felt (Ha! Literally!) like I was trudging through the story, wishing it would end soon. The 5th book was the best, but I don't think it was worth reading 4 books to get to it. There are MUCH better fantasy series out there. I'd skip this one and go straight to them.

Fine ending to the series. The first one was by far the best. And to be honest, I wish Rani would have gotten over Hal and continued doing her own thing...but true love perseveres, I suppose. So yay, happy ending.
