From a legendary family of vampire-hunting witches, Sarah was raised to never trust a vampire, to never let her guard down, and to avoid all tricky attachments of the heart.
But now Amdlia IS a vampire—changed by the boy she thought she loved. Her family has forsaken her, and Sarah herself is disgusted by her appetite for blood. Aida Vida is Sarah’s older sister, the good, reliable sibling who always does her family proud. But when Aida’s mother insists that Sarah be found and killed, Aida is given the one assignment that she may not be able to carry out. And at its center is the story of two sisters who must choose between love and duty.

Nowhere on the book is it mentioned that this is a sort of There are a lot of terms and ideas that are just implied and not explicitly stated. I have no idea why the content in the book was compiled into only 24 hours. If it glsss originally meant that way, then there were a lot of inconsistencies. The 24 hour time limit was just so not believable. Some of the events in the book could have easily lasted days, like battle recovery. And lastly, the pacing seemed way too slow for a twenty four hour novel.
When I think 24 hours, I think fast paced. The pacing felt like it was covering weeks and not one day. And I never knew there ateater-rhodes such a thing as too many plot bu until Must read this book.
The alternating POVs made no sense to me. But characters we rarely see? Honestly, was that necessary? There were way too many characters to get connected or see how one grows. But the way it was executed was distasteful. To be honest, I slogged through this book. I had to force myself to finish for the tour. Nov 05, Alaina rated it really liked it Shelves: All Just Glass is basically a sequel to Shattered Mirror which made me super happy.
So it is about Adianna aka Adia and how she takes an oath to kill her younger sister Sarah, who has recently become vampire. Now this book was so good, like amazing. I really like seeing characters from the earlier books being introduced again in my life. It makes my heart pitter patter and I probably had a creepy smile on my face the entire time I was reading it.

Now I’m not going to spoil anything about how this story unfolds or the journey it takes you on. You’ll just have to read it for yourselves.
I love this series. Aug 26, Mike rated it it was amazing Shelves: Before I start, I’d like to talk about the cover.
The old covers for Den of Shadows were excellent: It’s such a stereotypical YA vampire novel cover that it’s disgusting. But anyway, I’m reviewing a book, not criticizing artwork that I know nothing about. For the most part, I loved it. The stronger story is definitely Sarah’s; this is the first time we’ve really seen what it’s like to be a new fledgling, and why people have to kill. It also had quite a bit of tension that Adia’s story lacked.
Adia’s story wasn’t bad, but like I said, there was significantly less tension, and it wasn’t as well written. My main problem with her story was that I couldn’t quite understand the plot twists when they were first revealed; it took me a while to piece together both what Dominique revealed in the first chapter that she narrated, and why everyone was shocked at the picture of Zachary.
I eventually figured it out, but it was very, very distracting. In spite of these problems, almost everything else works well. The prose is excellent; sharp, crisp, and stylistically appropriate, it doesn’t distract from the story or characters at all, and you’re never aware that someone is writing it, despite it being written in third-person. And speaking of the characters, they work just as well here.
Michael and Zachary were a bit underdeveloped in the beginning, but by the end, I got a good sense of who they were. I also liked the development of Kaleo and Nikolas. It all worked very well. Overall, if you liked Shattered Mirrorthis won’t disappoint. If you haven’t read Shattered Mirror at all, however, read that first it’s actually better than this one. May 07, Cyna rated it liked it. I’ve loved Amelia Atwater-Rhodes’ writing since I was eleven years old.
I spent the better part of my teenage years on an Amelia Atwater-Rhodes message board, learning about and immersing myself in the world she’d created. Thus, her books are kinda a huge nostalgia bomb for me, and I might get a little more satisfaction out of them books than your average Jane off the street.
Now that being said, I wasn’t wild about Persistence of Memory, and to be totally honest, Shattered Mirror was my second-l I’ve loved Amelia Atwater-Rhodes’ writing since I was eleven years old. Now that being said, I wasn’t wild about Persistence of Memory, and to be totally honest, Shattered Mirror was my second-least favorite of the DoS series.
So I don’t think bias totally clouds my judgement on the subject. With all that in mind, I kind of loved this book. While I hadn’t exactly been pining for a follow-up to Sarah’s tale, I do like what Atwater-Rhodes did with it.
Shattered Mirror ended with Sarah, a teenaged witch and vampire hunter, being turned into a vampire herself by twin brothers that she’d both been hunting and befriending. Being the daughter of a woman who is essentially queen of the witches – witch, in Amy’s world, being near synonymous with “vampire hunter” – this created a lot complications, not only for Sarah, but for her family as well.
And as All Just Glass shows us, what creates complications for the Vida family creates complications for the rest of witch society.
The great part of All Just Glass is that we get to see all of these complications, and the way that they unravel the lives of many of the characters involved. AJG isn’t just about Sarah as she comes to terms with her new life as a vampire. Instead, the narrative flips between Sarah’s new life and the lives of her friends and family as they deal with her “death”.
The driving force behind the plot is the glasss that Sarah’s mother, Dominique, calls for to exact revenge on Sarah’s “murderers” – as well as Sarah, herself.
The “Right of Kin” that she declares compels every last remaining witch atwater-fhodes assist in Dominque’s quest for vengeance, and has far-reaching consequences, both politically – for vampires and witches – and personally, for the five remaining hunters whose duty it is to find and kill someone that they used to know and love.
One of my very favorite aspects of Atwater-Rhodes’s writing has zmelia been this really in-depth, complex, world that ameliz created. Every supernatural race, every family line, every organization, every individual character, has volumes of history behind them that color their present-day relationships, interactions, and decisions. This, in turn, affects the political workings and developments that we see in All Just Glass. It’s a really cool thing, atwater-rhodew you’re familiar with the world, to see characters that other books have mentioned in passing, out and about living their lives and affecting the lives of our current protagonists.
Better yet, AJG shows us not just more of, but a different side to some of the characters and organizations that we’ve previously read about. For example, we get a peek inside how the organization SingleEarth actually works, how it manages to function as a neutral zone in such a combative world.
– All Just Glass by Amelia Atwater-Rhodes – You’re
The primary focus is the day-to-day lives of the vampire-hunting witches, which I particularly enjoyed, since they’ve remained by and large the one-dimensional fanatical assholes of Amelia’s world. On the other hand, I can imagine that for someone who wasn’t familiar with the series, or even just not recently familiar with them, this could all seem very confusing.
Characters, names, lines, and political affiliations are thrown around, and though attempts are made to explain who they are and what everything means, AJG is still prone to moments of confusion. It could potentially overwhelm, and even turn off a reader new to the world. The other problem with this is, all of those necessary character explanations? Yeah, they can clutter the text something awful.
