While working together to figure out what the vision means, Zellie discovers that Benjamin is a worthy friend and mentor. If only he could keep his hands off of her - if only she wanted him to...

3.0 out of 5 stars Glimmer reviewed by The Book Vixen January 22, 2011
Format:Kindle Edition
3 and 1/2 stars

Why I Read this Book: I read Glimpse, the first book in this series, and I really enjoyed the story. This series carries a very unique paranormal story that just grabs you. I definitely wanted to read more about Zellie and the complications that surround her. If you've read Glimpse, you'll definitely want to read Glimmer.

What I Liked: In Glimpse, we didn't really get to know Benjamin, we just got to meet him. He was a very intriguing character and in Glimmer, he's one of the characters that takes center stage. I like Benjamin; he's cocky, funny and smart. I like that he makes Avery feel uncomfortable and keeps him on his toes.

There is a character in this book that at first seems like a new addition to the group. However, that is not the case. This character was in Glimpse a little bit, even had a few lines of dialogue. I just didn't know that he was going to have a bigger role in Glimmer. This move was very well played by the author. There were also some interesting twists and turns to the storyline that I didn't see coming. Just like with Glimpse, there's no cliffhanger ending but there are some loose ends that need attention. Glimmer ends well considering there is another book in this series; you know there's more to come, the door is not closed yet.

What I Didn't Like: There were a couple of moments in this book that I feel could use a bit of clarity. One thing in particular that I needed clarity on involves the circumstances surrounding Rachel. If you would like to know specifics, click on the SPOILER button below. But be warned, it could be considered a SPOILER, which is why I wanted to hide it away. You have been warned.

I'm also a bit confused about the "loophole".

5.0 out of 5 stars "Glimmer" is an Enchanting Sequel November 9, 2010
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
When I saw that "Glimmer" had been released, I rushed to download it on my Kindle. I have been eagerly awaiting this sequel, and I was excited that I might be one of the first to read and review it. I rushed through the reading part- just like its title, "Glimmer" shines with wit, the return of beloved characters, unexpected twists, humor, romance, imagination, and that aching mixture of sexual attraction and innocent love most of us only experience around the magical age of sixteen or so. But then, when I got to the actual reviewing part, I stalled out a little, because I realized I had something worth thinking about on my hands. Something new, I think. Not just a good story, but an emerging talent in a vibrant new genre. Let me come back to this point. First, the book:

Did I mention humor? Stacey Benefiel outdoes herself here. I laughed out loud more times than I can count. I recounted parts of the book for friends, who laughed along with me. Just a taste: Zellie, wondering just what the heck you do with your dream boy once you have him panting in your arms, thinks: "I guess if you make a guy talk like Yoda, you're not completely messing up." I almost choked to death when I read that, I laughed so hard. Since then it's kind of gotten stuck in my head: "Mmm. Kiss you I will. Love you, I do." Really disturbing, I know, and it's all your fault, Stacey Wallace Benefiel!

Many of the things left hanging in "Glimpse" get addressed here: we discover a lot more about the mysterious Benjamin; about the Society of Retroacts and their Lookouts; Zellie and Avery's impending little brother; and how family ties, so badly shaken in "Glimpse," wind up merely stirred but settled in "Glimmer." I loved reading about the Pacific Northwest.

5.0 out of 5 stars A Great Sequel to Glimpse! November 16, 2010
Format:Kindle Edition
Stacey has kept me entertained once again. I'm really picky about YA books, so I don't read too many of them. But I love this series, and I'll keep reading the books. There was a little more sexual content than I've seen in other young adult books I've read, but the fact is that this is what really goes on with teenagers, and the author really does a good job in portraying the thoughts and feelings of young people in this age group. Another winner!

5.0 out of 5 stars Such Rich and Wonderful Characters! August 8, 2013
Format:Kindle Edition
This book might be my favorite of the series. I know that I'm only two books in, but the characters are just so absolutely great. I'm not saying that they aren't flawed and whatnot, it's just that I've fallen in love with each and every one of them. The author's writing style is also one of my favorites. I love the language and the "realness" of the characters. Yes, they're young. I don't care if they are drinking and having sex. It's like I'm getting the best of both worlds - a YA book with adult themes and plotlines. I love it.

Maybe I'm a sucker for an ensemble cast, but this group of characters really had me furiously flipping pages to get more! Ben, Christopher, Zellie, and Avery (and Mel) are so fabulous together that I wish this weren't just a trilogy. The dialogue is fast paced and matches the action jam packed into this book. For me, the pacing was perfect. I don't like a drawn out final battle and this book wrapped things up nicely for me. No cliffhangers (really... kind of... sort of) and we see the character developing and growing with each chapter. Give me a hundred of these books and I still would want more. I'm addicted to this author now!
