Ink, Iron, and Glass Reviews

  • Lisa

    ETA: So glad I picked this up. The action picked up immediately, and I saw new depth with the characters. Plus, wow, some surprises that I'm still reeling from!

  • Lydia

    NO NO NO, HOLY MOTHER OF PLOT TWISTS.

    MY POOR HEART.

    I'm writing this review STRAIGHT AWAY after completing 'Ink, Iron and Glass' by Gwendolyn Clare, and I'm in complete utter agony.

    This book was gripping, delicious and delightfully entertaining - it pulled me in from the very first page and demanded that I rarely put it down (oops, sorry University work - you'll have to wait!). It was engaging in a way that most of the books I've read recently haven't been in a long time, and I can feel myself br

    NO NO NO, HOLY MOTHER OF PLOT TWISTS.

    MY POOR HEART.

    I'm writing this review STRAIGHT AWAY after completing 'Ink, Iron and Glass' by Gwendolyn Clare, and I'm in complete utter agony.

    This book was gripping, delicious and delightfully entertaining - it pulled me in from the very first page and demanded that I rarely put it down (oops, sorry University work - you'll have to wait!). It was engaging in a way that most of the books I've read recently haven't been in a long time, and I can feel myself breaking out of an almost self-indulged reading slump.

    This book follows Elsa, a person who was written into the world by what can best be described as "magical ink" as she gets ripped away from her home and the life she knew after her mother gets kidnapped.

    Drama ensues. Elsa develops a crush (BUT THIS IS IN NO WAY AT ALL A MAIN FEATURE OF THE BOOK. IT'S MORE LIKE A CONVENIENT FEATURE THAT ALLOWS CLARE TO RIP. YOUR. HEART. OUT), and she has to develop her knowledge and battle a series of difficult trials in order to get her mum back.

    This book was kick-ass from cover to finish, and it's writing style was very much luck that of Cassandra Clare's. The world involves some sort of steam-punky elements (or that's the vibe I got from it), and there's plenty of mysterious 'types of humans', much like in our beloved Mortal Instruments books.

    Sadly, though, Ink and Iron Glass just wasn't quite hooking enough to make it a five star read. The plot felt slow at points, and some parts of the book felt like I was reading someone's attempt of trying to increase their word count in a particularly creative English essay. Meaning, some scenes were just not needed.

    Elsa herself was definitely redeemed near the end, but, admittedly, she was arrogant, haughty and a little bit up-her-own-ass. Whilst annoying for the reader, her characterisation was perfect for the picture Gwendolyn Clare was trying to paint - a teenage girl who wasn't used to having friends and wasn't used to compromising, making her selfish and unbearable at times. All the characters were believably written, and Leo (my baby *-*) deserves a special shout out for being a new book crush.

    If only I was in a world where I could write HIM into existence.

    Overall, I loved jumping (quite literally) into the world of Ink, Iron & Glass and would definitely recommend it as a must-buy for fans of our Queen Cassandra Clare, and of course any fantasy lovers who wish they could write a fictional world into existence.

    (WHO WOULDN'T WANT DREAMY BOOK CRUSHES TO BECOME REAL PEOPLE??)

    That is my honest opinion, so I'm signing out.
