Yes! I can finally finish the Glass series! I’ve had these books on my shelves literally for years, and I kinda wish I hadn’t put them off! Opal went through a massive change in personality in the previous book so it was interesting to see where she was going to end up. I think I enjoyed this book the most out of the series, surprisingly, because it had everything I needed! In my previous review I made comments about needing Valek, Pazia and more on the Bloodrose clan, and Maria certainly delivered!

I’d missed Valek so much it was lovely to see him again, and we got Ari back too! Sidenote: Janco can seriously disguise himself as anything and Opal wouldn’t know. But the main thing to focus on was OMG Opal has no magic and what the heck is going to happen to her?! Despite this she is still strong, and although she mopes a little bit she’s dedicated to finding her blood. Opal has the opportunity to live a cushy life with all her diamonds, but that was never going to happen was it? She needs to be with the glass!

Spy Glass had so much danger and intrigue. I really loved Opal as the spy character! It worked so well with all of the contacts she’d collected in Fulgor. She ends up in a pretty similar position to Yelena pre-Poison Study with some creepy dudes wanting to use her for her power. This book was probably the most action packed, because there were more conspiracies and hidden secrets that had me on the edge of my seat. This book was packed full of big reveals that really drove the plot forward.

I mentioned in my previous review how much I disliked Devlen, but what do ya’ know? I’ve had to change my mind. I realise now that he’s perfect for Opal, besides there was a lot of ‘we can’t be together’ foreshadowing between Kade and Opal in the previous book, so I guess I saw it coming. He really changed in a good way and it was a plausible change too, thank goodness. It was really sweet how he was willing to do anything to help Opal, and I’m glad they ended up together, and I don’t think I would’ve had it any other way.

The Reema and Teegan subplot was probably my favourite and the ending was SO CUTE. Goodness, it was adorable. So lovely to see everyone happy! I think it was a really nice ending to the series. It left just enough mystery for any later series in the world, and it’s obvious that these characters went through some serious development! Overall, I think I give this series 3 stars because although I really enjoyed it, the stories are slow building and it takes some getting into.
