Summary: Opal, one of the characters who helped Yelena in the previous trilogy, is trying to learn what her powers are and how to use them when the orbs Storm Dancers use start breaking, killing them. Mostly because she works with glass, Opal is called on to help figure out the problem before other Storm Dancers die.
Likes: I didn’t love the love triangle, but it isn’t the worst version I’ve read. Lief’s sass is also particularly funny in this book. In previous volumes it wasn’t on display. There’s also expansion on the world building with the storm dancing and glass making.
Dislikes: Different variables but this book has a similar ending to the previous three. I also went back and forth on Opal. I understand, because she’s been through a lot, but sometimes she was hard to read about because she’s indecisive and afraid.
Overall even though I wasn’t as into this one it wasn’t a horrible experience so I’ll continue to read this trilogy so I can get to the other books with Yelena and Valek as main characters again.
