Glimmer of Steel
K. E. Blaski, author

Children/Young Adult; Sci-Fi/Fantasy/Horror; (Market)

Damen has a plan to save the life of his childhood friend before she's forced to marry the evil Noble Tortare: switch her soul with some other girl and let the other girl die in her place. Only he didn't count on the other girl's determination to live, he certainly didn't count on her soul coming from a different planet--Earth, and falling in love? No, he never planned on that. Told from alternating viewpoints: Damen, a truthsayer from Astrune, and Jennica, the soul snatched from Earth. Like Scheherazade from 1001 Nights, Jennica, the bride with the Earth girl soul, tells tantalizing stories about her planet so her beastly husband will keep her around past the wedding night. But Noble Tortare is no Arabian prince. He's a monster from the tip of his metal tail to his penchant for sucking the souls from his wives. Damen must be present while Jennica speaks to Noble, to verify she isn't lying. As Noble's faithful servant, he does what Noble asks. Only he didn't plan to spend so much time with Jennica, and he certainly didn't plan to care about her so deeply he can think of no one else. Now Damen needs a new plan: free Jennica from Noble's clutches, free himself from a life of guilt for stealing Jennica's soul, and free his heart to love--all without telling even the tiniest of lies on a world where deception is like oxygen. If only that Earth girl wouldn't have so many plans of her own: like keeping Noble Tortare's soul trapped on Astrune, because after listening to her stories, Noble craves something more than Jennica's soul--Noble wants to go to Earth.

Glimmer of Steel is one of the best stories I've read in a long time. I really enjoyed the fresh take on the fantasy genre (which is my favorite). The characters are diverse and engaging, the world is unique and detailed, and the story kept me guessing until the very end. I can't wait for the next book!

Glimmer of Steel is a great read with a strong female lead, who has a soft side too. This is a sit-on-the-edge-of-your-seat kind of book which will keep readers engrossed to the very end. After Jennica is ripped from Earth and transported to Astrune, she finds a way to not only survive in her new world but to thrive and make her new world a better place. Buckle in and enjoy the ride!

I really enjoyed the world Blaski sets up. The fact an Earth soul is seeing it for the first time is a nice twist, and it's fun all the differences and nuances Blaski creates. From purple skin that creates lust in others, to silver armor scales, and magic fueled by a mineral called Urion, the new world Jennica has landed in is fun to disappear into. I looked forward to reading this every night, and was sad when I was done. I'm already ready for more. I hope Blaski can write fast. I recommend this for people that want to try out a new fantasy author and dive into a world for awhile.
