Glass Girl Dorothy A. Winsor

Description

When her mother is murdered, sixteen-year-old Emlin throws herself into saving the struggling glassworks, the only place she's ever called home. Glassmaking is a sacred art on Kural Island, and like her mother, Emlin is an artist, gifted by the Dragon god.

While she struggles to save her home, the ruler of a neighboring island schemes to claim the throne of Kural. As war looms, Emlin becomes entangled with a charismatic scholar, Addy, who has a suspiciously strong interest in getting into Kural's palace. Meanwhile the ruling family demands she make a fake Dragonblade to protect them from the invader. In exchange, they will save the glassworks. Emlin is desperate, but conflicted on committing such heresy in the sacred art of glassmaking. What's more, her mother's killer is still out there. Will Emlin be next?

It's intriguing and well written. I'm not sure how the glass making and dragons fit in yet but I'm sure that will become apparent as I read on. My only small suggestion so far is that you introduce quite a few characters early on and I haven't really got a mental physical image of many of them yet. It's an interesting set up with a world full of new rules and secrets I'd bet. ;) x

First on this site. I have a YA fantasy with a very small press and an MG fantasy that used to be with a small press that closed its doors and is now self published. I love writing but publishing is a tough business.

I'd read it again and again! Strong heroine, loveable potential love interest, a plot and storyline that's not tied up in romance, but enhanced by it. Amazing world, I could get lost in it all the time.

Thank you! It's very nerve wracking to post a story, and your kind words make me feel better.

I'm hooked! The first chapter was stunning: gave us tidbits about the world in a very concise, well-paced way. I aspire to write a chapter so beautiful. Can't wait to find out more.
