I CAN'T WAIT FOR THIS BOOK! I need to know what happens to everyone.
In retrospect, it was probably a bad idea to read this book so soon...

This is the sequel to the amazing debut Ink, Iron, and Glass. This series reminds me a lot of the Map Makers series. I find the concept of being able to create worlds out of words is an amazing concept with so much potential. This series does not let you down with its excitement, danger, and plot twists. I love Elsa and what she stands for in using and preserving her gift to create worlds.

The ending of the first book was so heart wrenching I just had to get my hands on the second book. What we t

**This review WILL contain spoilers for the first book Ink, Iron and Glass. Please read at your own risk!**

Quick Summary:
- Loved the unique concept of scribing worlds and all the pazzerellone inventions!
- Took a lot longer for me to become engaged in this book and I felt like the plot was a bit all over the place
- I really hope there is a third book because this book created more unanswered questions!

My Review:

Thank you so much to Imprint for providing me with a review copy of this book via Ne

Attention, si vous n’avez pas lu le premier tome vous risquez d’être spoilé.

Il est rare que je dise ça mais j’espère qu’il va y avoir un tome trois, tout simplement parce que je sors de ce récit avec encore plus de questions .

Mais remettons un peu en premier lieu le contexte de cette histoire.

C’est un univers unique, je n’ai jamais rien vu ailleurs et ça permet des milliers de possibilité, l’imagination n’a plus aucune limite. A la fin

We were anxiously waiting this installment because this series totally reminded us of the inkheart series plus after reading the latest installment of the invisible library series, we had a lot of useful information to inspire this review. First off, we absolutely love Elsa and what she stands for in using and preserving her gift. She is basically in our humble opinion one of the most extravagant female heroine that possesses a power of writing. Our patrons also love the name Elsa (from Disney F ...more

It is the nineteenth century in Italy and Elsa can create new worlds using script that is written in books. That is a powerful gift and someone has stolen the most powerful of these books – this book can rewrite the Earth. Can Elsa trust someone who betrayed her in order to find the book? What will she discover along the way?

Mist, Metal, and Ash is the second book in the Ink, Iron, and Glass series. This alternate history book is full of adventure and a variety of characters. Clare has taken the

Dammit, sucked in again!!! Alternate world/fantasy authors love the sequel. YA authors love the trilogy with some novellas tucked in between. So a YA alternate world/fantasy author? I should know better, but this is really my personal genre of choice, so no, I am just left at the "Edgemist."

This is an action packed, stay up late book. There is always something around the corner and the end words are a great example in craft. No complaints. Th

Ce second et dernier opus est une vraie réussite : une aventure haletante, un voyage à cent à l'heure où on a du mal à cerner les bons des méchants parfois. Elsa nous entraîne dans son histoire avec panache à la pointe de son crayon...L'auteure parvient à nous faire rêver dans un récit original et riche sans que jamais on en devine là où elle nous emmène .

What an incredible second novel! No filler book here. Mist, Metal, and Ash is excellent sequel. I feel like this book is better than the first one. The characters are more polished and the story line develops at a steady pace to keep the reader hooked. I recommend this book without any doubts.

*It’s more like 3 1/2* I finished this ebook ARC today. I feel like I am just as middle ground on this one as I was with Ink, Iron and Glass. The characters were great and the pace was good. Some plot points were easy to see coming, and some were convenient but overall the story was interesting enough that I wanted to finish to see what happend.

This world is one of my favorites.- I love the idea of books being actual, physical worlds . This book (and the first) are action packed and include a fast-paced plot, and interesting characters. I liked Elsa's character in the first novel but she becomes even more polished and developed in the second novel. A great sequel, with many twists and turns-- did not disappoint. Great read.
