Once again, Dolamore's book got off to a slightly slow start. The reason for this was the introduction of a new character, Ifra, whom I did not yet care about. I wanted desperately to hear more about Erris and Nim, and it was disappointing. Well, thankfully, just like in book one, the story soon took off, bringing me along for a magical ride in its firm grasp.

There are a slew of new folks in this installment, most importantly Ifra and Violet, a spoiled young girl and relative of Erris. Violet could actually inherit if Erris does not survive. At first, I was not wild about these decisions. By the end, I was totally sold. Of course, Violet is mostly annoying, but, one thing I love about Dolamore's writing, is how everything is shades of grey. The characters are all so real, because there are things that annoy me even about my favorites, and sparks of good in the bad guys.

Speaking of things that annoy me, much as I love Erris, which I really do, he was driving me crazy! Nim too. He was all mopey and just wanted to be alone all the time. Come on, man. I know your situation sucks, but it's gotten better, so why are you grumpier than when you couldn't move. Sigh. I mean, I get it, but it was painful going through that with the characters. Even the pain is better than if he was constantly perfect, but I just want him to be happy!

There was definitely none of the "we're in love so it's us against the world with our perfect relationship" thing that often drives me crazy with YA romances. Despite their feelings for one another, Nim and Erris clearly are having some difficulties. Considering the fact that they had only known one another for a brief period of time and under very extraordinary circumstances it's no wonder that some peace brought complications.

4.5 /5 stars.

Now that she's helped Erris gain a kind of half-freedom from his life of mechanical imprisonment, Nimira begins to wonder if she's done the right thing. Still partially made of clockwork, Erris's soul remains trapped in his metal body. Erris begins to grow distant, mourning the life that was stolen from him and the people he's lost. On the recommendation of their benefactor, Nimira and Erris set out to find the sorcerer Valdana who may have the answers they're looking for to finally free Erris. But as they search for Valdana, they discover that there are those who also search for Erris - people who are intent on making sure that the lost Tanharrow prince does not reclaim his throne. When Nimira and Erris's search dead-ends and it becomes clear that Erris's time is running short, Nimira decides to school herself in the art of sorcery, hoping that her fledgling skills will help her protect Erris in the struggle that is to come.

The relationship tension that Dolamore develops between Erris and Nimira is believable and heartbreaking. It doesn't feel unnecessary or over-dramatized, instead there are very real and valid concerns that frustrate both of them. They become distanced and awkward as Erris copes and grieves for all that he has lost as well as for the future that awaits him as half a man. Nimira feels guilt over possibly making his situation worse. She fears losing him and fears what will happen to both of them if they fail. They are in constant close proximity as they search for Valdana, but emotionally Erris and Nimira are worlds apart from one another. During this time, Hollin makes a reappearance in Nimira's life.

This sequel to Magic Under Glass has Erris and Nimira traveling north to visit the sorcerer Ordorio Valdana who may have some insight in how to restore Erris to life. Tensions are high between Nimira and Erris because Erris is grieving his old life and is frightened about his future. He is pulling away from Nimira which just makes her feel more alone and unsettled too.

When they arrive at Valdana's house he is away but they discover that he has a half-fairy daughter who is Erris' niece. They also discover that he is not a popular man in the neighborhood because of his actions during the fairy human war. They end up spending some considerable time waiting for Ordorio to come home. Erris uses the time to try to recover some of his fairy magic and to teach his niece about her heritage. Nimira uses her time to learn magic.

Meanwhile, back in the fairy lands, the ruling family is having trouble with a dissatisfied populace and internal rivalries. When the youngest son brings his father a jinn, he wins the contest to be the next heir. However, he doesn't feel that he will be a good king and he is constantly being undermined by his brothers who feel they are more worthy of the throne.

The king binds the jinn to him and sets him off to look for Erris because he is the true heir to the throne. Ifra is the jinn and we get to know quite a bit about him and about the jinn as he searches for Erris. He finds the household and Ordorio's daughter Violet tries to convince Ifra to take her to fairy lands. She is a very sheltered, spoiled and naive young girl but she treats Ifra like a human. Ifra has to follow the king's commands but he has some room to disobey if he is creative. He returns to fairy land without either Erris or Violet.
