#Book 2 in the Glassblower Series
I was a little disappointed with this second book in the series. It felt like the author had drifted along with no real purpose, or indeed, determination with the development of the characters.
It was humdrum, just telling, not showing, ordinary lives that had nothing remarkable in them. Whereas the plot did have things going on, and would have lent itself to the coming together of the two. There were also a strand from the first book (the wholesaler), which could have been expanded upon and brought a lot to the party.
The Good ... the Bad ... and the Ugly
The 'Bad' element, as always was "gotten" rearing its ugly and useless head.
As far as 'Ugly' goes, there simply isn't enough of that in the text as a whole, it needs menace and suspense.
