Ink, Iron, and Glass is the first book in a new duology by the same name from debut novelist Gwendolyn Clare.

I really enjoyed the story. it was a concept I haven't read before. I can't wait for the next one!
This is such a great book with an interesting concept! Unfortunately, I just wasn't in the mood for it right now, but I wanted to read it before I returned it to the library. I'm interested in seeing where this series goes, and I'll probably be giving this a reread before the sequel comes out!
Wow! Yes! This is my kind of book! Intelligent, clever, creative, and action-packed story line; intriguing and diverse characters, who experience personal growth; interesting, clever, and at times witty dialogue; surprises and unexpected twists - everything I look for in a YA fantasy!
I received a copy of this book from Macmillan Children's Publishing Group via NetGalley in exchange for an honest review.

It wasn’t a horrible book , it just didn’t work for me because of its format and choice for a plot , I will still read its sequel to see whether th ...more
