Review: The Glass God by Kate Griffin
Like her previous novels Griffin is able to inject a good degree of humour without detracting from the overall serious tone of the novel. My favourite aspect of the first book in the series, and what set it apart from the Matthew Swift books, was the degree to which the support characters were developed. Griffin does the same again here but extends it to the antagonists, which really makes for some interesting 'grey' characters.
Pacing is again fast and well controlled with short sharp chapters.
Overall Griffin does an excellent job of building on the good work she did in her first Magicals Anonymous book. 8.75/10.
