I finished reading Glass Heart (Cold Kiss #2) by Amy Garvey early this morning for an Around the World ARC Tour.
Wren can do things that other people can only dream of. Make it snow on a clear, crisp day. Fly through an abandoned tunnel. Bring a paper bird to life.
Wren knows her abilities are tinged with danger—knows how easy it is to lose control—but she can't resist the intoxicating rush. And now that she has Gabriel by her side, someone who knows what she can do—what she has done—she finally feels free to be herself.
But as Wren explores the possibilities of her simmering powers, Gabriel starts pushing her away. Telling her to be careful. Telling her to stop. The more he cautions her, the more determined Wren becomes to prove that she can handle things on her own. And by the time she realizes that Gabriel may be right, it could be too late to bring him back to her side.
I enjoyed reading the first book in the series, Cold Kiss, last year so I was excited to read this next book. And I was right to be excited.
Once again, I loved Wren. She had a sarcastic streak that I loved and I liked her relationship with Gabriel. It was fighting and making up, which teenagers do all the time. I also enjoyed Wren's relationships with Jess and Darcia...they seemed like a great and true trio of friends (although I could do without the smoking references). And I liked reading a little more about Wren's magic. (Can I have just a little magic, pleeease?)
This book answered some of the questions I had from the last book: We find out what happened to Wrens dad, and find out some more about her families powers.
I don't know if there is a third book coming, but if so, I will be picking it up!
I gave this book a rating of 3.5/5.
