Among the mitigating factors why this book became a favorite of mine is that I am a medievalist; I love a good mystery; I spent a year, which included a summer, wandering the countryside of Germany before my senior year, visiting abbeys, cathedrals and castle ruins.

This story made me feel like I was back there doing it all over again. But more than anything, this book was so incredibly written--from characters, to plot, to descriptions, to making me feel like I was there right along with Lin and her family each step of the way--these alone were enough for me to place it into the pile of personal favorites and best books of Helen Grant weaves a tale of mystery and suspense involving not only the stained glass surrounding the legend of the The Glass Demon, Bonschariant, but the mystery of Lin's family itself. Each chapter unveils a bit of the secret of both.

Each step and discovery Lin makes, whether it be about her family, the village, the glass, her emotional status, her father One glimpse of the Gothic title stamped on the spine in gold had convinced me that trying to read even a single page in that typeface would be like picking your way through a thicket of thornbushes. Even if you got to the other side, you would wish you hadn't tried it.

There is not one word that can describe everyone's specific obsession. Tuesday is obsessed with not being old and labeled a mother. Poly is obsessed with not being fat. Lin's father is obsessed with finding the glass so much he doesn't have time for anything or anyone else. The laicized priest is seemingly obsessed with convincing everyone the glass does not exist anymore, but And Lin? Lin is obsessed with a plethora of things, and she can be; she is the protagonist!

The story is narrated by Lin, and though first-person point of view is one of the hardest POVs to write in, Ms. Grant pulls it off without a hitch.

There were no problems at all. Not once did the tone drop out of Lin's voice. In the dark, or in sunlight, or in humor, Lin's snarky teenage voice shines through. Helen writes with a great use of similes, as shown above in the example. This is still in Lin's voice, due to her being a very smart teenager.

We still see the typical weakness in her actions and choices, same as most teens have. To name a few, her unsure and awkward tendencies when faced with love or lust or the crush of a boy, and being the new kid in school. I could not put this book down once I opened it up. With the pattern of murders splintering the countryside, leaving a trail of broken glass and feeding the paranoia of the legends and tales of The Glass Demon, it is no wonder this book had me trapped and unable to sleep till I was finished.

The Glass Demon Book Trailer

This is a book I would recommend as a family read, and definitely fits into the Young Adult genre; however I highly recommend this to anyone looking for a smart, well-written literary suspense. Wow what a book!

It's the modern Mopar wheelstander we so desperately want to be real.

Fast-paced narrative with a character I liked. Helen Grant writes with a style I enjoy reading. Her sense of humour shines through, with the main character, Lin, snarky and with little patience for stupidity and rude people. The characterization rang true for me--a teen who is not afraid to stand up for what she thinks is right, but second-guesses herself at times.

The main story was mystery and a touch horror combined, underscored with the secondary plot of Lin's sister, Polly, having anorexia, and Lin's fear for her.

This adds tension to the main narrative. It was all woven together smoothly.

Her similes were deftly drawn, one of my favourites being, "Reality seems to be unraveling as though it were a piece of knitting and someone had taken the end of the wool and pulled until the stiches slipped, one after another, dissolution running back and forth across the work, faster and faster The journey Lin undertakes reveals her strengths, while it exposes the weaknesses of those around her, including her father and mother.

While I was not scared while reading this book, I did fear for the characters, although assumed Lin would come out of it alive since she was narrating it. If you want a book that is within the thriller genre but has a literary slant, you should try this book.

I couldn't put it down. I'm off to find Helen Grant's other books now. One person found this helpful.
