Description: Sasha Alexander has a powerful ability.

Either that, or she’s dangerously mad. She isn’t always sure which.

Her father shrouds her in isolation, convinced he’s protecting her from the same madness that took her mother. But the seven impossible guardians that only she can see insist she’s gifted. Her companions since her mother’s suicide a decade ago, they protect her from hurt, pain and fear.

They also keep her from feeling love.

Sasha doesn’t know how to react when Noah explodes through her defenses. This strange young man with the scarred hands suddenly makes her feel again. And she wants more. More of Noah, of his wakening touch. But the guardians don’t want to lose their decade-long hold, while her father despises Noah on sight.

Sasha risks exposing Noah to a world that would cheerfully see him dead.

But unless she can learn to control her own emotions, the biggest danger to them all may be Sasha herself.


 Vicki Keire grew up in a 19th Century haunted house in the Deep South full of books, abandoned coal chutes, and plenty of places to get into trouble with her siblings. She spent the last decade teaching writing and literature at a large, football-obsessed university while slipping paranormal fiction in between the pages of her textbooks.

Published works include the bestselling Angel’s Edge series, which includes Gifts of the Blood, Darkness in the Blood, and Blood Redemption, The Chronicles of Nowhere series, and the stand-alone novel Daughter of Glass. She is included in the Dark Tomorrows anthology with J.L. Bryan and Amanda Hocking, and the Primetime anthology with J.R. Rain and Anita Exley.

When not reading and writing about all things paranormal, she enjoys other people’s cooking and keeps vampire hours. She’d rather burn the laundry than fold it, and believes that when an author wins the Newberry, he or she gets a secret lifetime pass to Neverland. She is fond of lost causes and loud music. She currently resides in Central Florida on a lake-front farm full of many furry friends. She loves hearing from readers and can be reached on most social media sites or through her blog (link: http://www.vickikeire.blogspot.com/), of which she is awfully fond.

So, emotions personified? I mean- HOW COOL IS THAT?!

To be quite honest, while the synopsis intrigued me like CRAZY, and I was super excited for the book. I also had this nagging feeling that I might not get what I was expecting. Which kind of put a damper on things. And I went into the book feeling a bit wary and skeptical.

But, regardless of my doubts, Vicki Keire has this UNCANNY ability to transport you into a story- especially one with paranormal elements- where she makes you feel like you're in a completely normal world, with perfectly relate-able characters and then BOOM. You're filled with emotions, and rooting for the characters, and feeling scared for them and getting pissed off along with them and it's like she drew you into the story. Literally made you feel every emotion that our Protagonist was missing out on!

I can't really explain it- but I loved, loved, LOVED the book- it was simply out of this world. That detached feeling that Sasha has learned to live with, and her Guardians, each emoting their emotion so BLOODY well, and those pictures- WOAH! Okay, I'm gushing.

Honestly, I was going to give this book a five star review anyway, but then I reached that ending. And it wanted me to make me give it like a 5.5 on 5 or something. I didn't know what to expect- because in many paranormal books that I've read, they make that ending SO unrealistic that you just go - WHAAT just happened?! But Daughter of Glass wasn't like that AT ALL.

It was so realistic and believable and cute and heartwarming and so so BRILLIANT- just like the rest of the book:)

My Verdict:

Please please please tell me that there's a part two!
