“All That Glows” is the story of Emrys, a fiery red-headed girl who loved her simple life in the Highlands. She spent her days shuffling Kelpies into pastures. However she is summoned to London, where her magic is weak, to rejoin the Faery Guard.
When she arrives back in London, Emrys isn’t given any ordinary task. She is assigned to guard Britain’s notorious bad boy, Prince Richard. With the prince’s royal blood and careless actions, he is irresistible to the dark spirits, who feed on mortals. Emrys has no choice, but to go on an adventure filled quest through London’s magical underworld, facing many obstacles, to put her magic and heart to the test. Emrys needs to know if she has enough power to save Prince Richard. During all this chaos, Emrys discovers a force that is more powerful than magic: love.
“All That Glows” was easy to follow and had imagery that helped me picture what was happening, like I was seeing it through my own eyes; in fact, Ryan Graudin made me feel like I was in the story. I could picture Emrys searching through the magical under world and fighting the dark spirits. Within the first couple of pages I was hooked, there was no way you could have made me put the book down. Each page was filled with mystery and suspense that kept me on the edge of my seat. This story was unpredictable. It was hard for me to guess what was going to happen next.
I would recommend “All That Glows” to anyone 12 to 15, who likes adventure, mystery and a little bit of a love story.
