Sarah Vida has given up everything for love. From a legendary family of vampire-hunting witches, Sarah was raised to never trust a vampire, to never let her guard down, and to avoid all tricky attachments of the heart. But now Sarah IS a vampire—changed by the boy she thought she loved. Her family has forsaken her, and Sarah herself is disgusted by her appetite for blood. ...more

Read the full review @ Frazzled Book Nommer.

I didn’t like this book. Plain and simple. I normally enjoyed Amelia’s previous works, but this novel was a huge step down to other books she’s written.

First off, she assaulted us with tons of names that a new reader isn’t likely to remember. It’s been a while since I’ve read her Den of Shadows series; I’m not likely to remember five different families and the sub-divisions of those families. She also threw terms at us that a new reader might not have
All Just Glass is basically a sequel to Shattered Mirror which made me super happy. So it is about Adianna (aka Adia) and how she takes an oath to kill her younger sister Sarah, who has recently become vampire. Now this book was so good, like amazing. I really like seeing characters from the earlier books being introduced again in my life. It makes my heart pitter patter and I probably had a creepy smile on my face the entire time I was reading it.

Before I start, I'd like to talk about the cover. What. The. Hell. Happened. The old covers for Den of Shadows were excellent: they were mysterious, entrancing, and they really attracted me to read the book. This... doesn't. It's such a stereotypical YA vampire novel cover that it's disgusting.

But anyway, I'm reviewing a book, not criticizing artwork that I know nothing about.

For the most part, I loved it. It really had two stories; one of Adia, Dominique, Michael, Zachary, and Jay hunting Sarah

I've loved Amelia Atwater-Rhodes' writing since I was eleven years old. I spent the better part of my teenage years on an Amelia Atwater-Rhodes message board, learning about and immersing myself in the world she'd created. Thus, her books are kinda a huge nostalgia bomb for me, and I might get a little more satisfaction out of them books than your average Jane off the street.

Now that being said, I wasn't wild about Persistence of Memory, and to be totally honest, Shattered Mirror was my second-l

All Just Glass is definitely my favorite, so far, from the newer books in Amelia Atwater-Rhodes's Den of Shadows series. Perhaps, because it involves all the characters from Shattered Mirror, which was my second fave of Amelia's books right after Demon in My View!

Surprisingly, the book picks up shortly after the events of Shattered Mirror, but you don't really have to have read that one to enjoy or understand this one! It's had to be at least 10 years or more since I've read it! The other intere

I don't know why but I went into this not having particularly high expectations for it and it managed to surprise me by being a quite enjoyable read. Though I was a little bit lost in the beginning since this is a continuation of the third book in the series that I've read a while ago and I've managed to forget almost everything about it. So in the beginning of the book I was constantly trying to figure out if some of the characters are new to the series or if I've just managed to forge

I loved Amelia Atwater-Rhodes' books as a teen, so nostalgia is what drew me to pick this book up. It's unfortunate that her writing style just seems to have stayed entirely stagnant with little improvement from 10 years ago. I had fun revisiting the world and characters (all of whom are beautiful, dark, and brooding, of course), but the way this was written just felt sloppy with strange jumps in continuity. I don't understand why this was written over a 24 hour time period and I didn't even rea ...more

I have not read the Den of shadows series since I was 12 but I remember Shattered Mirror was one of my favorites in the series. I loved the characters and complexity. So when I saw that there was a sequel to that story I was super excited to jump back into Sarah's story and the Vida witches. Atwater-Rhodes created a world I loved so much. While I know I am much older now, I just could not connect the characters in Shattered Mirror with who they were in All Just Glass. It felt way too rushed and ...more

This was a much better story than the previous one. This is more of a sequel to Shattered Mirror. It follow the now Vampire Sarah and her Witch sister. Now on opposite sides they follow a few days after the tragic accident with Sarah on how the two can coop in a world with one another, set as enemies. I enjoyed shattered mirror and this was no different. My lack of one star was only because I wish for more of a story on Sarah and her adjustment to living forever, along with her relationship with ...more
3 1/2 Stars

All Just Glass is the seventh book in The Den of Shadows series by Amelia Atwater-Rhodes.
This is a great YA, paranormal fantasy series with vampires, witches, shapeshifters, supernatural elements, hunters, mystery, suspense, danger, action, drama, and a little angst.
Sarah Vida gave everything up for love- literally. She's forever changed by her experience- and it's made things quite difficult. You see she's now a vampire, and that's quite a big complication considering she's a witch

I really enjoyed this! However, some of the filler parts were slow and not very needed.
This is a sequel (almost directly) to Shattered Mirror and it's been a long time (*coughcough* years) since I read that one.

I did basically DEVOUR the first four books in the Den of Shadows back in the day though:
#1 In the Forests of the Night
#2 Demon in My View
#3 Shattered Mirror
#4 Midnight Predator

I really, really wanted more in that world, but that was when she started on a whole different run of books and I wasn't as interested in them -- though, I did buy/read them at the times they wer
Small Review
This is the sequel to Shattered Mirror and book 7 in the Den of Shadows series, but DON’T STOP READING YET! I promise this review doesn’t have any spoilers for the previous books.

But let me just gush about Shattered Mirror for a minute

Shattered Mirror was published in 2001 when Amelia was a teenager, but you’d never guess her age based on her book. I devoured Shattered Mirror and have been singing its praises for years. Two hot vampire brothers—one good, one seductively bad—and the girl in the m
My Review:
Some years ago, I read the first two books that Amelia Atwater-Rhodes wrote in her DEN OF SHADOWS series. I enjoyed them immensely. She knows how to weave words and create worlds that seem as if, like Narnia, they can be discovered around the corner, or down a dark alley, or indeed, in the back of a wardrobe. ALL JUST GLASS seemed as if it was sure to be a good addition to the previous work that I had read from Atwater-Rhodes.

I'm sure that I have mentioned this before in my reviews, bu

Sarah Vida has done the unthinkable. She has become a vampire, one of the creatures she once hunted. Now her family has called upon fellow witches to help them kill Sarah, putting Adia Vida in charge of the hunt. Sarah remains in a state of confusion over her new state as a vampire, as Adia struggles with the task of killing her younger sister.

Before I begin this review, I want to make things clear. I was never a huge fan of Shattered Mirror, the prequel to All Just Glass. When I heard that All

"Make no deals, barter no honor."


Again, I feel like I was dumped full speed into the middle of traffic. We start so far into a plotline I was on the Internet for like an hour trying to figure out what the hell I missed. We jump right in and it's the most confusing thing I've read in a long time.

There's a lot of potential here for a really awesome universe of stories, but these books could be twice as long without dragging. There's so much information that the reader is EXPECTED to know, but it j

All Just Glass

One thing I can always count on with Amelia Atwater Rhodes’ stories is the poem in the beginning of the book. I don’t know what it is that makes me love that one little detail so much, but it does. All Just Glass is a sequel of sorts to Shattered Mirror. When we last left Sarah Vida, witch and vampire hunter, she had just been turned by Nikolas and Kristopher and if you know anything about the Den of Shadows universe you know a Vida becoming a vampire is huge.

So before I really spill my thoughts on this book, I think it's important to note that this book has a theme, and that is: having balance is better than attempting to achieve absolute perfection. Okay, there I said it. This book is going to really beat that message into you.

So, I read this book because I read Shattered Mirror (the prequel) back when I was a kid. I really loved that book, along with Midnight Predator and Demon in my View. This book however (written 10 years after "Shattered Mirro
I read In the Forests of the Night and Demon in My View a few years ago, and then read All Just Glass today. The author has definitely improved--good thing since her first book was impressive for a 13-year-old but not so impressive compared to YA in general. This one was published nearly a decade after the last book in the series, which I didn't read, nor the one before that. All right. That's fine.

This thing still read like the season finale of the third season of a TV show without even a 30-se

I’ve been struggling to articulate what exactly it was about this book that I didn’t like. I know what it is that I do like about it. I like the world that Amelia Atwater-Rhodes constructed so carefully with these characters prior to “All Just Glass.” I like that this book takes place within 24 hours. And I’ve been a fan of her previous themes about family, the struggle to achieve perfection and control and love.

“All Just Glass” begins immediately after the events of “Shattered Mirror.” Aida is

I think this book might have been better if it had not been years since I read Shattered Mirror. I have forgotten so many details that make my reaction this book a "uh? What?" Amy spends little to no time introducing her characters, as she obviously is sure that her readers still remember Nikolas, Kristopher, Sarah, etc. I did but...the action details from SM are a different story...

Amy often referred to the fight that caused Sarah's turning, but if you forgot SM, you spend half the book going

I know that a lot of people have said that this one was confusing but I’m my opinion it was okay in wasn’t what I expected it to be. I wanted more action and it just wasn’t that actiony. However something that i really enjoyed was the ending. I loved that twist that the author put in. I also loved the observations that Sarah made about Kristopher and Nikolas. But my favorite character had to be Kendra, even though she was only in a couple of scenes in the book it just worked and she was just som ...more
