    I don't think this book Is my cup of tea. I managed too get halfway through and then had to give up. It just didn't grab me, so that is why I have given it a two star review.

    Such a fantastic sequel! So many twists and turns, and the world gets bigger, things are explained, and I loved, as hard as it is to imagine, more then Dark Metropolis!

    This book isn't really my type.I wasn't really interested, it bored me. In my opinion i wouldn't read this again. There is a girl named Marlis horn. she felt like she was being trapped behind a bullet proof glass. the world fell apart.A really bright light swept by and blinded her. The only thing that felt safe was papa's arms.

    the ending was a bit meh - and kind of predictable - but i'm glad it was a happy ending at least - if the author had allowed the reader to get closer to Ingrid it would have made her death more impactful for the reader, instead of her being cast as the villain all the way throughAlso would have been nice to have marlis introduced in the first book so we could get more of a connection to heralso i don't think the whole "losing magic forever" was as big of a deal as it could/should have been - because we don't really get a connection to the magic, it's always seen as this burden to Freddy that not many other people have, and ultimately doesn't really affect them very muchalso, i'm not sure why the author chose some Norse mythological elements (the Norns/Yggdrisil) without tying Norse mythology into the series as a wholealso why so many german names? Maybe this was supposed to be a take on WWI (king otto=ottoman empire) or something? - It would have been nice to have a firmer understanding of what the author was intending with these choicesBut I still liked the series as a whole, and this book wasn't really -bad-, I was just a bit disappointed.

    I think that Dolamore may have been listening to Wagner as she wrote this story, as it has a lot of symbolism in common.The story picks up shortly after Freddie has "released" the workers.Dolamore adds what I believe to be a Socialist type revolt as the people behind the revolution are primarily workers.The other prevailing element, is the tragic cost of war. Dolamore poignantly describes how soldiers and Thea must adapt to their injuries and go on living.A well written story that is very haunting.

    -Actual Rating 1.5 Stars- This sequel had a lot of potential; however, the romance in it seemed forced and to me seemed like a big part of the story. Other than the romance, the action and battle scenes were not too bad, but it was quite anti-climatic. I found myself hoping and bracing for an epic battle between King Otto and the Revolutionaries, but.. alas....

    Glittering Shadows was a lot slower and more political than I had anticipated, though not at all in a bad way. Thought-provoking, expansive, and suspenseful at times. I definitely got the explanation for magic that I had wanted in Dark Metropolis as well as a scary new villain with it. All in all I enjoyed this and feel as though it was an appropriate and well done conclusion.

    I just flat out didn't like this one anywhere near as much as the first one. I spent most of the book (like...95%) disliking ALL of the characters. How much I enjoyed the first one is the only thing that kept this from being a DNF

    A decent conclusion to a two book series, though I do feel as though it would have worked better as a trilogy. There was a LOT of information stuffed into this book that I really wish we could have been given more time to explore.

    Because of my work on the Stonewall Book Award Committee, I cannot publicize my opinions regarding any book with LGBT themes. I may update these reviews after the announcement of the 2016 Stonewall Book Awards.
