The first in a new fantasy duology, The Glass Spare is a gorgeously told tale of love, loss, and deadly power from Lauren DeStefano, the bestselling author of the Chemical Garden series. Perfect for fans of Shannon Hale and Renee Ahdieh. Wilhelmina Heidle, the fourth child and only daughter of the king of the world's wealthiest nation, has grown up in the shadows. Kept hidden from the world in order to serve as a spy for her father--whose obsession with building his empire is causing a war--Wil wants nothing more than to explore the world beyond her kingdom, if only her father would give her the chance. Until one night Wil is attacked, and she discovers a dangerous secret. Her touch turns people into gemstone. At first Wil is horrified--but as she tests its limits, she's drawn more and more to the strange and volatile ability. When it leads to tragedy, though, Wil is forced to face the destructive power within her and finally leave her home to seek the truth and a cure. But finding the key to her redemption puts her in the path of a cursed prince who has his own ideas for what to do with Wil's power. With a world on the brink of war and a power of ultimate destruction, can Wil find a way to help the kingdom that's turned its back on her, or will she betray her past and her family forever?… (mere)

Review in my Merry Bookmas Week 3 Vlog

I was given an ARC by the publisher in exchange for an honest review

"I wasn’t quite sure where this book was going to go and was pleasantly surprised. The world-building is an interesting mix of industrial-revolution, mythology, alchemy, and “marvelers” aka magicians. The main character, Wilhelmina or “Wil” for short is everything I want in an MC; she’s feisty, strong, smart, and very skilled. Is she magically all of these things? No. She’s had years of training being the 4th in line to the throne (or the spare child). As Wil had trained to by the King’s spy her whole life, these skills come to great use on her journey..."

Wil, the youngest child of the king, and only princess, is banished after her gift/curse kills someone close to her. She then journeys to find a marveler who can undo her curse. She is captured and drawn into a plot to overthrow another country's king. It makes for uncomfortable issues when she is drawn to her captor. Part one of a duology, which is nice--it won't drag on forever.

This is an okay fantasy starter. Wil, a princess, has agency even though she is a spare heir. A couple of the side characters have OCD, so that is interesting. I was irritated that there are four siblings and they split to three against one. None of the three tried to ever initiate any overtures to the one. so when he is cruel--no wonder. I have some issues with the "romance" also. Loom is married, and Stockholm syndrome much? This would be fine for upper middle grade--no sex, but some violence. ( )

I LOVED this book - I honestly don't know why, I actually thought it would be different than what it was though I didn't read much about it other than getting it in my owlcrate and reading it this month I knew it had something to do with gems of some kind, well, thats the thing I got from the tattoos that came with the book anyway - so I was pleasantly surprised at how the book drew out - and I cannot wait for book 2.

This is one book where I don't find the side character to be more of a focus than the main for me - I loved the MC so much - I felt so drawn to her and her plight and felt for her situation.

I feel like perhaps the inevitable romance could have been left out - perhaps just make them buddies - I mean, it's not like it was bad to read but it was just .. in there - though perhaps the next book will go somewhere surprising - I literally can't wait to pick it up! Great job owlcrate, after last month you've redeemed yourself! ( )

This was interesting, then not so much, then the action began and everyone wanted a piece of our heroine. I was just about to stop and the twist at the end kept me there. Kinda glad I did, this was a great story and I cannot wait for part two to emerge from the deals of the sea!! ( )
