Review - The Glass Man by: Jocelyn Adams


Lila Gray is just a human—at least that’s her mantra when she accidentally topples a building or bends a paranoid local's gun into modern art. That she can sense and control the minds around her doesn’t prove anything, either. Unwilling to put others at risk, she hides in the wilderness from the beautiful creature who hunts her, one who sees her as his ultimate prize.

Alone, the egocentric Glass Man can kill with a thought. Mated with Lila, he's a supernatural weapon prepared to annihilate the humans he loathes.

Caught in the Glass Man’s latest scheme, Lila is plunged into a hidden fae realm, faced with a secret birthright and a forbidden romance.

With the Glass Man threatening everyone she loves, can Lila accept who she is in time to end his bloody reign? Or will she succumb to his dark power and become the vehicle of destruction for the human race?

Intended audience: 18+, strong language, adult themes, some violence.

After reading Jocelyn Adams' Darkside Sun and hardcore loving it, I decided to scour her other books. When I saw she had fae under her belt I couldn't help but give it a try and let me tell you it didn't disappoint at all. I absolutely loved The Glass Man and once I hit a certain point could not put it down!

There are so many fellas in this book and I really loved so many of them. I'll start off with Garret, little Garret...I just adored every scene he was in. He's so frightened and yet brave and selfless I couldn't help but adore him! Along with selfless is Donovan, this dude is one awesome fae. Not only does he do everything in his power to help Lila but he's got some pretty cool powers. The other fella I will mention is Nix, I really like him. Although I say that, I'm a little wary thigh because Nix is the sweet, handsome, always there for you guy and well...I'm completely team Liam!

Liam Liam Liam! Oh man, I adore this guy. He is sexy and protective and has total love for Lila no matter what she throws his way which is a sign of such a great guy. Plus seeing his powers and the things he can do were just totally awesome as well. Of course with him, there's our main character, Lila. I liked sort-of growing with her. She was so lost and tough in the beginning, and although she's still a tough chick at the end she knows so much more about herself. Plus, I loved her attitude, there were so many times I laughed out loud at things she says.

One final boy I suppose I'll just mention a tiny bit is Parthalan. Man, is he bad...sexy bad but bad. Parthalan is the definition of power hungry, of using whatever and whoever he wants to get his way and I actually really liked him as a bad guy, as odd as that sounds...ha!

I'm not sure if she's considering this one adult or NA because our main character is 20 and there is some heavy language and sexual moments. That being said, I absolutely love this age range! No, it's not because I'm 24, but I have always preferred the older side of YA because nothing is really held back and that makes for a heck of an adventure.

Overall I absolutely adored this book. I love all things fae and in The Glass Man we get to see some really awesome sides to the seelie and unseelie. I'll admit that the beginning was a bit slow, I actually thought I read the wrong synopsis because it didn't seem like what I expecting, but once it started picking up...man did it pick up! Violence, sexy fellas, romance, heartbreak, awesome lore, and one kick-ass protagonist all contribute to this awesome story. Cannot wait to read the next one!
