Glass Coffin

★★★★½ (This is a review of the audiobook.) I just loved this one and Gabra Zackman, a narrator I’ve never heard before, did a wonderful job. Kerrick, the hero, in this book is grumpy – and boy does she make him sound that way! LOL! Though, why Quain, part of the entourage, has a Scottish accent in a post-apocalyptic/dystopian/fantasy book, I’m not sure. **shrugs** Still, Ms. Zackman convinced me she was the heroine, Avry, as she narrated from a first person POV.

This is the first in MVS’s Healers series and I can’t wait for the rest. I thought she was going to go the way of her Study series, but… no, she maintained originality in her plotline.

I haven’t read a lot from the Young Adult genre -- nor Fantasy for that matter -- but this one was wonderful. This is a fast read; the pacing is smooth and tight with enough twists to keep it entertaining all the way through. I did it as a “buddy read” and I wasn’t the only one surprised. Nevertheless, I guessed a few things correctly, so I didn’t feel like a total nitwit. If you haven’t read many YA either, this might be the one with which to start your reading adventure.
