Before providing an individual review for each of the four books in this set, I want to express that I really enjoy author Megan O'Russell's writing style and voice; both of which make it extremely easy to immerse oneself into her stories, and fall in the love with the characters. Therefore, I do recommend everyone to look into Megan's books if they are looking for new YA series to read. This box set would be a perfect introduction to her work, as well as to the various worlds she has created. Ember and Stone (Ena of Ilbrea #1) Rating: 5 Stars I found out after finishing this book that there is a prequel to the series. While I do not feel that jumping into book one without reading the prequel hindered my understanding, I do think the prequel would have provided a lot of background information beneficial to the worldbuilding of this series. Therefore, I would say it is a personal choice on whether you want to read it or not as I enjoyed this story regardless. The progression of the story follows the main protagonist, Ena, on a journey from a village through mountains, forests and, lastly, back to guild-controlled areas. The first setting—the little village where Ena grew up as a child—created an atmosphere that reminded me slightly of The Hunger Games trilogy. As the setting changes, so do Ena—she develops into a much stronger, braver, independent woman than she already was; she did not want to always rely on having someone around to protect her, so she had someone teach her self-defense. Concerning the other characters, I found the dynamics to be interesting, relatable and life-like. I did find this plot to be straight-forward, without any twists or turns. That said, I really appreciated the simplicity of it and think it added a realistic vibe. Also, no spoilers, but I must mention that one of my favorite scenes in the book was Blood Valley! For the next book: I am looking forward to seeing what happens next not only in Ena’s adventure, but also the story of all the other characters. I am very curious about the Black Bloods and hope to learn more about them. Lastly, I anticipate seeing more development of the brewing rebellion against the guilds. Girl of Glass (Girl of Glass #1) Rating: 3.5 Stars This book was my first dive into another world created by author Megan O'Russell; the previous being the Ena of Ilbrea series. If it were not for a fairly recent decision to read indie authors, I would not have discovered any of Megan O'Russell's work, which would have been disheartening since I have come to love many of her characters and ideas. The premise of this book (and series) is rather good, albeit scary due to the realistic possibility of such a dystopia setting (dome societies) occurring given the current situation of our environment. The world of the Girl of Glass series is separated between those that live inside the domes and those that live outside them; the latter being addicted to drugs such as vamp (vampires) and lycan (werewolves) as a means to cope with the pollution. Of course, there are rising tensions—originating from misunderstandings and, I would say, lack of compassion to some extent—between these two groups that will likely result in a war at some point in the series. The weaving of a futuristic dystopia with paranormal/supernatural elements is intriguing to me, but I wanted a tad more. This book is a quick read, with a plot that is straightforward and fast-paced. In terms of character development, we do not see much in book one, especially in comparison to the amount of time spent on worldbuilding. Therefore, I hope to see more character development in the subsequent books. While I appreciate the pacing as there is never a dull moment once the ball gets rolling and it makes the book easier to imagine as if it were a film, I do wish Megan would have taken a bit more time (which means more content) to explore her creation. That said, I am interested in reading the rest of Nora's adventure. The Tethering (The Tethering #1) Rating: 3 Stars Despite the three-star rating, this book is still well-written and has a developed plot. Unfortunately, the story was not for me, at least not when compared to other works by Megan O'Russell. Now, this feeling could be due to a couple of reasons so let me explain: 1) This is one of the first works by the author (I believe). Considering writing is an ever-developing skill even for New York Times bestselling authors, it is to be expected that this book will perhaps not be on par with more recent works such as the Ena of Ilbrea series. I definitely still commend Megan for this book, and I have enjoyed as a reader seeing her writing journey. 2) The other reason, as other readers also mentioned, is that the book's plot felt like a mash-up of a couple of well-known series such as Harry Potter and The Mortal Instruments. I have only seen the TV show adaption of the former, but I grew up with HP and was definitely the target audience of Shadowhunters. While there is nothing wrong with taking inspiration from the world around us—as long as you make it original—the setting was not as unique to me, and the plot twists lacked surprise. Despite the above two points, I tried to approach this book objectively, and I do believe someone that is less familiar with YA clichés or someone younger (and presumably less familiar with J.K. Rowling, Cassandra Clare, etc.) would thoroughly enjoy this book. Just like Megan's other work, it has entertainment value. Since I have yet to read the sequel or the blurb for the rest of the series, it is possible that the story arc develops into something readers have not necessarily seen before. If I decide to continue the series, an additional hope is to see more character development as some of the characters felt 2D. The Girl Without Magic (The Chronicles of Maggie Trent #1) Currently reading! Review to come.

A forbidden practice in Ena’s world. Punishable by death. And yet, she practices it, learning from the village healer and ink maker. Ena, a girl with a broken family, a lying brother, and a village now gone. And with a newfound adventure beyond her wildest thoughts with a man born with stone magic in his veins, her world shifts beyond the tyranny of her land’s so-called “leaders”, and with every healing gift, comes the gift of death, one she can create with the right berries and the right help. Another great read by Megan O’Russell, Ember and Stone will captivate you and leave you wanting more. There is no hope of love for her, an uncommon find anymore, but it is well balanced by the amount of pluck and guts Ena has, making her the perfect role model. I was a little confused by the sudden mood change Ena went through near the end, as she went from good girl to flirting to get her way. Girl of Glass- Dystopian meets Twilight in Girl of Glass a story about life behind glass, a way of preserving life, or well, all the best aspects of it. Within the domes, only the best of bodies, minds, and personalities live in luxury and safety. Outside the domes, drugs that change you, change your body, your abilities, and all the failures that came with the drugs are barely surviving. For Nola, she has everything she could want as the daughter of a botanist. Until an offer comes across her path, the chance for more. All she has to do is leave the domes, and find Nightland, an underground group of Vampires. She is told that all they want is some medicine for their leader’s dying daughter. If she doesn’t, she will have the guilt of knowing that she could have saved a life. If she does, and she’s caught, she will be marked as a traitor to the domes. Naturally, she makes the most sensible choice: she steals the medicine. Now, she has been tossed into a world of betrayal and danger. Love is hiding behind the least expected places, and familiar faces aren’t as familiar as she thought. Girl of Glass is ensnaring and immersive and is a well written dystopian. Danger lurks in every corner, and it is very descriptive. If you enjoy dystopian novels and love triangles, I recommend this book, along with the entire series. There weren’t a lot of things that I found wrong with this story, and the entire series is pretty much one big book. A well-written series, indeed. The Tethering This may sound like a horror story, but honestly, it isn't. There are, however, massive Harry Potter and Beautiful Creatures vibes coming off of this book, and allow me to explain why. Jacob has lost his best friend(psst he totally doesn't like her romantically) years ago, and now his family. The initial shock causes him to lash out in a fit of magic, a gift he had no idea he even had. So, of course, his childhood crush and bestie returns for him, we have this whole moment of, “you're a wizard, Jacob.” To top it all off, he gets accused of a crime. But there are evil forces afoot(Duh)! Dark forces, that will stop at nothing to kill us muggles, er, humans, called the Dragons, want war with the humans and plan to kill all who defy them! Yeah, pretty common trope but it's well played out. Jeeze! Jacob just wants to learn magic, not accidentally get tethered to his crush who has an (ex) boyfriend during the start of the war! This book is well written, however, a few problems I have is the way it felt very off at times. For instance, he messes up with magic one time, and is instantly accused of a crime? I mean sure, he suspiciously bore witness to a Dragon attack, but come on! He didn’t even know he had powers! Yeah, probably not my favorite book, but a worthwhile read nonetheless. The Girl Without Magic I, honestly, have no idea if I've done this already. I might have, so sorry in advance if so. But, as part of the box set, I must review it, so here we go! Maggie Trent, a magic-user, has died in battle. Or has she? When she wakes up in paradise, nothing seems impossible. Why, with the right amount of magic, one could do anything. But magic is like money. It runs out in the Siren’s Realm, and the Siren demands payment. So long as you have magic, you are safe from her storms that cleanse all she no longer wants. Maggie learns this the hard way when in order to survive and not be swept and robbed, she needs to keep up the lie of having never possessed magic. A shame she couldn't keep that secure longer before Bertrand Wayland figured it out. With the mysterious man, comes the offer of replenished magic: slipping through the threads in the Siren’s Realm, and going on grand adventures. Never one to back down from a fight, she accepts. With her journey comes a new land, one of many attached to the Siren’s Realm. With the land comes love, danger, and new experiences. But can she defend a wandering group of magic teachers who have no intention of fighting? I remember this book. And it never ceases to amaze me with how well it was written. I think this was the first Megan O’Russell I read or at least one of the first, and it brings a wonderful sense of nostalgia back to me. Definitely worth the read, and really wanna read the other books in the series. The pacing sees me a little off at points, but that was the only true fault I had with it.

    Ember and Stone: I enjoyed this book, although several aspects of it felt very Hunger Game-ish. Ena lives in an impoverished town ruled over by the Guilds, who have stationed soldiers in each town to keep the peace. Ena likes to spend a lot of time in the woods outside of town. She has lived with the local ink maker (who also works illegally as a healer) since her parents died and her brother left town. When her town is burnt to the ground and its occupants killed, Ena finds out that her brother Ember and Stone: I enjoyed this book, although several aspects of it felt very Hunger Game-ish.

She has lived with the local ink maker (who also works illegally as a healer) since her parents died and her brother left town. When her town is burnt to the ground and its occupants killed, Ena finds out that her brother is part of a resistance and she joins their cause. The book is good; it has a few original points, but for the most part, it felt a lot like several other YA books I've read before. Girl of Glass: Several aspects of this book reminded me of DiSilverio's Incubation series. The story takes place in the future and the environment is extremely toxic. A large group built domes to protect humanity and they focus on "maintaining the human race". Not everyone was welcomed into the domes. People outside of the domes struggle to find food, are burned by the acid rain, and die from lung diseases. To counteract all of these difficulties, the people outside of the dome have developed drugs to make them stronger and help them survive. These drugs change them though. Some lose the ability to digest food and begin craving blood (Vamps). Some become aggressive and start hunting in packs (Weres) and others suffer brain damage (Zombies). Interesting concept, but I wasn't completely sucked in. However, I must give props to the proper response that the main character, Nola, gives when she realizes that the boy who was her best friend growing up, who was banished from the domes with his father, is now a Vamp. It reminded me so much of the scene in the forest in Twilight when Bella tells Edward that she knows he's a vampire. Nola reacts the proper way, not caring that Kieran only consumes animal blood, she reacts with terror and revulsion. Way to go! The Tethering: Jacob Evans doesn't have friends. His mother died when he was a toddler and his father takes jobs out of town, leaving Jacob alone for weeks on end with barely enough money for food. When a new girl, Emilia, comes to school, they quickly become friends. A few years later, she leaves with no explanation, promising to come back for him. Several more years pass. Jacob is 16 when he finds out that his father has died. Then there is an incident at his school and Emilia shows up again to bring him to the place where she has been all of this time. Emilia has magic and so does Jacob, but he couldn't be told the truth until he displayed his own magic abilities. What follows is a very rushed story of Jacob learning about magic and how to use it. There's also the age old battle between the wizards who think that they should no longer hide from humans, even if it means killing humans to get their own way, and the ones who think that it's wrong to kill any innocent, even if that means that they themselves must remain hidden. The story was ok. The Girl Without Magic: This book takes place in the same universe as The Tethering, but I liked it much more. Maggie is fighting in a battle (perhaps the same battle beginning at the end of The Tethering) when she dies. At least, she thought she died. She soon comes to see that she is not in fact dead, but that she has fallen into the Siren's Realm, a place of luxury and pleasure in which magic is the currency. Maggie meets a man names Bertrabd Wayland and learns that he has found a way to travel in and out of the Siren's Realm, having adventures, and refueling his magic on other worlds. I imagine the series takes on a Gulliver's Travels feel. I really enjoyed this book; it may have been the best in the collection.

I did like Megan's style of writing and without an exception, all stories had me hooked from the start. The first book was "Ember and Stone, Ena of Ilbrea". The story had me gripped from start to finish. I made the mistake to read a review of the last book in the series (with spoilers) and that is why I won't continue with this series, that is my own fault. The end is very unexpected, that is all I will say. The second book is "Girl of Glass". This was amazing. Set in a dystopian world, I liked this even better than the first book. The third book is "The Tethering". A good read but I found it lacking in originality. It reminded me of Harry Potter a lot and it had a character that was very similar to the Mord-Sith written by Terry Goodkind. Personally, I would not read the rest of the series. The last book is "Girl without Magic". This was my absolute favourite! There is action, suspense, battle, humor and a hint where Maggie comes from, read it carefully or otherwise you'll miss it. The pairing of Maggie, the teenage witch and the ancient wizard Bertrand is hilarious and I like to see what they get up to. I am not a fan of romance in fantasy, but that is my personal taste. It features in all Megan's books but I am prepared to put up with it in this case. In my opinion the books would be better without it because in each of the first 3 books the romance is set up as a love triangle. The romance is also very traditional: boy/girl and the boys are the protectors who will look after the girls. The girls are sassy enough but this kind of romance may feel really dated in a few years. I don't normally write reviews, but as it was a free download I felt obliged to leave a review. I gave it 5 stars as it would not be fair to give any less because of my personal dislike of romance. Overall a great read & a good introduction to Megan's work.

    A blend of the begining of multiple tales. A very fine adventure full of just enough glimpses of various characters, and their tales, to leave you wanting more. Well written characters, and various different settings, in which they're all forming a vivid description of their lives. It's almost like you're there, in person.

    I loved her writing style. My favorite books were Ember and stone, which pulls you in right from the start, and A girl without magic, although the story took a while to really kick in.

    Four different stories that abruptly end without any resolution, apparently to prompt you to purchase the next in each of the series. I wouldn't bother.

    I revived an advance copy in exchange for my honest review. I loved these books so much. From the first chapter of each one I was hooked. I can’t wait to read the next books. The author did a great job creating these worlds but at moments it was a little slow.
