Summary: Wren can do things that other people can only dream of. Make it snow on a clear, crisp day. Fly through an abandoned tunnel. Bring a paper bird to life.
Wren knows her abilities are tinged with danger—knows how easy it is to lose control—but she can't resist the intoxicating rush. And now that she has Gabriel by her side, someone who knows what she can do—what she has done—she finally feels free to be herself.

But as Wren explores the possibilities of her simmering powers, Gabriel starts pushing her away. Telling her to be careful. Telling her tostop. The more he cautions her, the more determined Wren becomes to prove that she can handle things on her own. And by the time she realizes that Gabriel may be right, it could be too late to bring him back to her side.

My Thoughts:  I liked Glass Heart but I didn’t quite love it as much as Cold Kiss. I’m not sure if it was my mood or I didn’t like the plot as much.

We are back with Wren and she is still dating Gabriel. A kid they know named Adam goes missing, and Wren feels like she needs to know more about it and why. She meets a few new friends including a guy named Bay and she thinks they might be behind it. They know more than they let on, and they want her to experience her magic with them. They can also do things as well.

Wren is also dealing with family dilemma. Her dad has been a topic of discussion a lot lately and  Wren isn’t sure how she feels about that.

Wren has started using her powers more and experimenting but Gabriel doesn’t want her too and this puts some strain on their relationship.

Bay causes a lot of havoc and puts a curse on Gabriel. Wren must figure out a way to stop Bay and break the curse on Gabriel.

Honestly, I think my biggest problem here is that I didn’t feel like Glass Heart had enough of a plot. I’m happy to be back with some of my favorite characters but I just didn’t love this one as much as I thought I would. I still think you should give this series a try though. I loved Cold Kiss!

Overall:  It was ok. Probably more like a 3.5 cupcake novel instead of just 3. I liked that we are back with all the characters, and we get to see what life is like for Wren after the whole Danny fiasco.

Cover: Like it! It’s just as pretty as the first cover!
