Review for updated, Shiny Gem version!

Quinsey Wolfe's Glass Vault (Glass Vault, #1)Do you ever re-read a book? I do. This time out, Candace Robinson’s QUINSEY WOLFE’S GLASS VAULT has had a makeover, and it shines like a diamond! There is still something dark going on in Perrie’s town and it can be downright terrifying, especially knowing that not everyone can see the new establishment in town.

Written for a young adult audience, this new, shiny gem screams READ ME, no matter how old you are! A fabulous dark mystery, true evil and Perrie, filled with her own brand of attitude and snark, is determined to discover what is going on and is just the girl to put a stop to it!

Candace Robinson listened to what people said, she went back to the drawing board and she has created a reading masterpiece of entertainment to get lost in, reality left far behind…Yes, this gem now has “meat” enough to sink your reader’s teeth in!

Old Review:

There is something strange going on in Deer Park and it all started with the unusual museum that seems to disappear at the most inconvenient times. Author Candace Robinson has conjured up a tale of magic, mystery and horror that even blends fact and fairy tale! QUINSEY WOLFE’S GLASS VAULT will peck at your imagination and challenge you to keep up as Perrie and August enter the museum to find their missing friends, only to discover there is more to each horrific display than meets the eye, as well as more to the mysterious owner than Perrie could ever imagine.

Looking for a very dark, very busy read with more twists than a Twizzler? Candace Robinson has it right here. The concept is fabulous, dark and at times truly evil. There will be moments of sadness and moments of relief as Perrie goes in search of her best friend only to find that sometimes, one can never escape their fate.

This definitely felt like a young adult read, sometimes I thought that it would be perfect for middlegrade/younger YA readers, except for the liberal use of profanity. Perrie came across as a one tough cookie on a mission, although she also felt very young to me. I could see this tale being expanded into more than one book and I wanted more meat, but for a younger reader, it was great, again without the profanity. (And I am not a prude, I can *#@ with the best of 'em)

I applaud Candace Robinson’s talent to take on more than one genre, to give me the creeps and to make me recognize the scenes she has created or re-created. It just didn’t feel like an upper YA read to me and I think there is a huge younger audience out there that would fall all over this one!

I received this copy from Candace Robinson in exchange for my honest and voluntary review!
