DarkGlass Mountain - bk. 1

An excellent read, the chapters are short and captivate the readers attention.
Sara's characters are interesting and some twists are delightful in the anticipation.
Although, some twists are predictable, there are some that are not anticipated.
Romance and darkness intertwine to sweep the reader away into the characters world. I was spellbound and absorbed.
It is a simple read with intricate plots. The author slips into and out of the lives and doings of the characters and then combines their histories to come to a conclusive ending, leaves you wanting more!

"The deity was bronze, it was not capable of moving, but nonetheless StarDrifter thought he felt--or intuited--it snuggling against his body, almost as a small child would."

"A strange, but not unpleasing, warm sensation passed through Isbel's fingers and suddenly all the friendliness in Garth's eyes vanished."
