When you first read the description of Glitter, you might think it’s just plain odd. Breaking Bad meets Marie Antoinette? A pretty young thing and a powerful drug in lip gloss?

But what you get is a wonderfully original read that’s edgy, fun, and has just enough history meets sf to keep you reading non-stop until you finish. Honestly, if I didn’t have to work, I would have binge read this entire thing in one sitting.

Now, keep in mind, it’s a cliffhanger. But, oh it’s a good one. If book two were available now, it would already be on my kindle and I’d be reading it instead of typing this review. It’s the kind of cliffhanger that makes you scream “NO!”, yet doesn’t anger you. You just really, really, really want to see what happens next.

The world building was stellar. As I read, the more logical part of my brain would come up with questions, but the author handled them beautifully, building a complete world that’s utterly different from anything you’ve read before.

And our characters? Complex. Danica is very like Marie Antoinette in which she’s well meaning, yet incredibly self-centered all at once. Yet, she’s still likable. But, oh, so many people get hurt in her quest for freedom. I hope the next installment is out because I am ready!

Years ago, I purchased this novella and Life After Theft as Nook Books and had completely forgotten them. I was searching my collection for the author's books when I came across them and discovered you can no longer find this on Amazon or the author's web page.
