An exciting, satisfying conclusion to the Glass Vault duology. The story remains face-paced and action-packed, the characters’ interactions are as fun as in the previous book (especially Perrie and Maisie,) and the dark creatures from twisted fairy-tales create a memorable, creepy atmosphere:
Flapping toward us is a light gray body with cracks covering its skin, as if it were made of stone. Paper thin wings with veins so dark they look black beat rapidly against the wind. The creature’s f
Earlier this year, I read and adored Candace Robinson's first book in the Glass Vault series. When the author's second book, The Bride of Glass, was published this summer, I had to jump on it. What imagination and creativity lurks in her mind!

Combining fantasies and fairy tales, this series expands upon everything we thought we knew about the stories of yesteryear and injects them with a twisty punch. Perrie is stuck in Quinsey Wolfe's crazy glass vault, but she's no longer Perrie. He's transfor

[December 2017, 3rd edit] I'm way behind with my reviews, and trying my best to get back on track.

The Bride of Glass is a good to conclusion to Perrie's story. And what I most love about Candance Robinson (as I said before) is that she goes beyond simple YA, and has a better understanding of teenagers nowadays. Maybe all authors have a good understanding of teenagers, but most play it safe, without sexual content and/or too much violence. Candance doesn't do that, and it fits her story perfectly
Perrie has become THE BRIDE OF GLASS and Candace Robinson takes us on a slightly different journey into the world of battle of dark versus light both within her characters and all around them. As Perrie begins as Vale’s puppet for his evil soul and as souls are taken, lost to the depths of dark fairytale scenes, we are thrust headlong into a tumultuous beginning that threatens to force us to re-think the characters we met in book one. Is all as it seems or will there be hope for Perrie and even ...more

The Bride of Glass is the second book in the Glass Vault series by Candace Robinson. In the first book, Quinsey Wolfe's Glass Vault, we met Perrie Madeline and her best friend and cousin, Maisie, who had discovered a new museum that seemed to have come out of nowhere. When Maisie spotted a now hiring sign she was determined to get a job at the oddball establishment thinking it would be the perfect place to work for someone with a quirky personality such as herself.

In THE BRIDE OF GLASS, author Candace Robinson continues the wild ride she began in QUINSEY WOLFE'S GLASS VAULT and sends the reader on an emotional rollercoaster through mature themes of what it means to be human and to love and to sacrifice for those in your life that mean the world to you. A page turner till the very end, BRIDE OF GLASS employs multiple narratives and viewpoints and skips timelines to fully craft a story of tremendous heartbreak, anguish, and redemption. Definitely an author ...more

This is the second instalment in the Glass Vault series and was every bit as thrilling as the first!

Perrie Madeline is officially stuck in Wonderland. About to become the bride to Frankenstein's monster and condemning souls to hell for fun, she has lost all touch with the person she was before this horrifying and twisted adventure commenced. Lucky for her, her tenuous link to reality is about to be reinstated when rescue comes in the unlikely partnership of best friend and ex-boyfriend! Together

True Rating 4.5 stars! I adored this story. Adored it!!

The Bride of Glass is the second book in the Glass Vault series and picks up directly after the conclusion of the first book in this series, Quinsey Wolfe’s Glass Vault. If you are interested in reading the first book in this series, I want you to know that the review on this book containers no spoilers for this The Bride of Glass BUT it would be mega-spoilers if you plan to read the first book. Be warned.

"through all the darkness that hibernates in all of us, the light can always subdue it" - The Bride of Glass by Candace Robinson

The Bride of Glass is different than Quinsey Wolfe in a way. But it's being different is a good thing. Sometimes a second book can almost become a little repetitive of the first one, which can cause the story to become a little stale. The Bride of Glass is fresh and new. It almost took me back at first. It starts out very dark and somewhat violent, and the reader feels

I received an ARC ebook in exchange for an honest review.

4.5 out of 5 stars.

THE BRIDE OF GLASS--the second one in the GLASS VAULT duology--is a different kind of novel compared to the first book. In this one, we get to know some characters through their own POV, which is cool. This story is as--or more--crazy than the first one.

Urban Fantasy and horror and something else makes this story compelling and great. Kuddos to Candace Robinson for her wild imagination and for creating an out-of-this-wor

After the terrific end of the first book, Quinsey Wolfe’s Glass Vault, I was eager to read this book and wanted to see what is going to be in this one what will happen to Perrie. I must admit author gave lot of surprises in this book.

The book is about fighting a demon, good against bad, friendship, and love with the city of glass

The Bride has joined Quinsey Vale. Together, and with the rest of the creatures in the glass vault, they set out on a rampage, demolishing everything in their path so that Vale can become powerful enough to use his powers outside of the vault. But Perrie is slowly regaining her memories of the time before, and her friends

I really loved this continuation of the Glass Vault series. I enjoyed experiencing every evil and atrocious act of Vale’s. He is my favorite kind of villain; the kind that cause me to question my own thoughts since I tend to root them on throughout the story. What is it about these despicable characters that I love so much? I have no idea, but this book has three deliciously heinous villains, and I beg Candace to please make another book that takes place in the Underworld. It would be so good! : ...more

Many thanks to the author for offering me an ARC in return for an honest review.

I really enjoyed the dark fantastical delight that was Quinsey Wolfe's Glass Vault and was very keen to read the sequel. Robinson has surpassed herself with this one. The wtiting is clearer and the narrative contains sharper themes.

After falling into Wonderland in book one, Perrie has almost lost all sense of the person she used to be, becoming cold and uncaring as the bride. The reappearance of an old friend jolts

First, thank you Candace for sending me an ARC of Bride of Glass! This in no way affected my review, and all thoughts are my own :)
Bride of Glass picks up right where Quinsey Wolfe's Glass Vault left off, the reader being plunged back into Candace's darkly rich world, where each twist and turn will have you sitting at the edge of your seat! Candace spins a deliciously vivid stage where each character's decision is not an easy one, nor a straightforward one, and I loved this. Life isn't always e

I voluntarily read and reviewed an ARC of this book provided by the author. Thank you for the reviewing opportunity!

An anticipated sequel to the thrilling Quinsey Wolfe's Glass Vault that ended with a nerve-wracking cliffhanger, the story picks up from when Perrie became the Bride and trapped in the clutches of Vale, the evil mastermind while Maisie, Perrie's missing cousin sets out to rescue her.

Fast paced and hauntingly good, Candace's writing has a way of capturing you and leave you craving

What a stupendous end to Perrie and Maisie's story! This 2nd book in the series delivered and outpaced the first, and by far exceeded my expectations. I was left with an emotion I can't really describe...Almost like sadness that the story was done, but elation at how well it *was* done.

I like the villain. I don't mean like... I mean "like like". It's a problem -_- But Vale is so well-written and just so evil, you can't help it! I loved everything from the various points of view, to the Maisie's

I am going to be up front that I went into this biased. I had read her first one in the series, Quinsey Wolfe's Glass Vault, which I completely loved so I started this already with warm fuzzy feelings and believing it was going to be a good book. You DEFINITELY need to read the first before jumping into this or things won’t make sense.

After reading Quinsey Wolfe's Glass Vault i wasn't sure it could be topped. But this sequel (book 2) was certainly more, it went beyond my expectations and further. I loved that we got to see some characters develop further as we get to know more about them.

The Bride of Glass is the second book in the Glass Vault duology, and it is a wonderful conclusion to the series. If you read the first book, you certainly need to read this one to see how everything comes together. I assure you, it will not disappoint.

Quinsey Wolfe's Glass Vault ended with a bang. It left me instantly wanting to pick up the next book – and such is exactly what happened. As soon as I finished Quinsey Wolfe's Glass Vault, I dived into The Bride of Glass. I wanted to know what hap

The sequel to Quincey Wolfe's Vault of Glass is a satisfying cpntinuation to what happens to the characters we came to love in the first book. It is a story that reminds us that in every being, there is both light and dark, and love could give us the courage to live through horrible circumstances and make them right. It is a fun read that I highly recommend to people who enjoy YA books. ...more

I was so eager to read this book to find out what happened next for Perrie and her friends as things were looking pretty grim at the end of the first book. I had so many conflicting feelings over some of these characters. I started to understand and even like some I thought I could only despise. And pairings I had shipped no longer seemed right. I totally thought the ending of this book would go one way--which would have been good--but I loved the direction it took instead. I could not put this ...more

Totally loved this! I love the whole feel of this series! It's macabre and dark, but also hopeful and fun, and I enjoy the uniqueness of the story and the characters. This book felt a bit more adult than the first book due to some intimate scenes, and as with the first book, there are some disturbing visuals presented. I really enjoy Candace Robinson's characters, they all are rather quirky; some darkly quirky, which creates some interesting reading. You should read the first book before this on ...more

Loved this second book in the series! Like I mention in the first books review this is something that was different for me to read and took me a hot minute to get caught up on this change of pace. I ended up liking it a lot! Change doesn't always have to be bad.
