Synopsis: Some see it…Some don’t…
People in the town of Deer Park, Texas are vanishing. There is a strange museum, known as Quinsey Wolfe’s Glass Vault, that appears overnight. Perrie Madeline’s best friend and ex-boyfriend are among the missing. Perrie, along with her friend August go on a pursuit to search for them in the mysterious museum. Could the elusive Quinsey Wolfe’s Glass Vault have anything to do with their disappearances?
And another fellow blogger makes her mark! If you haven’t checked out Candace’s blog at https://literarydust.wordpress.com please do. You won’t be disappointed! As for Quinsey Wolfe’s Glass Vault it’s a quite a promising debut. The plot is very imaginative and unique. It begins in an ordinary enough way with Perrie dealing with family and romance issues and worrying about college. She’s someone readers can instantly relate to. She can be unforgiving and obstinate, but overall she’s a compassionate and caring person, even when it comes to Neven, her ex-boyfriend who she believes cheated on her. One of my favorite parts of the book is the relationship between Perrie and her quirky cousin Maisie. The girls are inseparable, so when both Maisie and Neven go missing, naturally Perrie is not going to sit back without jumping into the investigation herself. On her dangerous journey she brings her new love interest August. Once they set foot in the sinister museum of the mysterious Quinsey Wolfe, things get crazy very quickly. While the glass exhibits are beautiful, there’s also something deeply disturbing about them, which unfortunately Perrie and August soon discover. I’m not going to go into further details because you really need to read this for yourself. My only two complaints are that I thought some of the scenes were a little too rushed, which I think is the result of the book being too short, and there were some instances where there was more telling rather than showing. Otherwise, I thought this was an absolutely brilliant debut that’s unlike any other YA horror/fantasy that I’ve read. I highly, HIGHLY recommend this for older teens and adults who enjoy this genre and are looking for something different. Seriously guys. You need to read this! It. Is. That. Good! And look at the pretty cover. Doesn’t it just call out to you? The ending is a humdinger of a cliffhanger, so I can’t wait for the second book in this duology which I’m hoping will be a little longer!
