While trying to teach her adopted daughter, Reema, how to work with molten glass, Opal receives a letter from Master Magician Zitora Cowan requesting Opal's immediate help. Zitora resigned from the Sitian Council over two years ago to search for her lost sister, and no one has heard from her since. The letter is probably a trick, but Opal refuses to pass up the opportunity to help her mentor, who may be in genuine trouble. Good thing Opal isn't that easy to fool. With her two soldier friends Nic and Eve providing backup, the three travel to a small town in the Jewelrose Clan. But can they rescue the Master Magician without being caught in the same trap?
Excellent short story.
Another addition to the 'Study' universe. This is a great short story with magic, intrigue and drama as well as a touch of humour. One problem - the cliffhanger ending!
Shattered Glass follows on from the glass series where Opal receives a letter from the retired second magician Zitora Cowen. In the letter, Zitora explains that she has found her sister but that she is sick and needs Opals help. Opal questions the authenticity of the letter but decides to pursue it. This book details Opals journey and is a great book about the sacrifices we make for the people we love and the interesting dynamic between love and fear. It is a good read provided you have read both the poison study series and glass series.
