Synopsis - Divider

The Utdrendans have spoken, and everything has changed as a consequence. People Capering on Glass Bridges by Jessica Hernandez - Cover.jpgnormally avoid the fog surrounding the cursed Kingdom of Mar, but now they are asking sixteen-year-old Kaia Stone to venture into it. The Utdrendans implied that there is something special about Kaia. They claimed that she could help free the land; she need only carry out their instructions and deliver a message to the Marian king.

Mar, however, is a land in which dark secrets abound, and many will stop at nothing to ensure that it remains forever cursed. Determined to work against Kaia, unfriendly forces have already begun to gather.

Will Kaia choose to abandon the only life she’s ever known—perhaps indefinitely—in pursuit of the greater good…in pursuit of her purpose?

My Review - Divider

Capering on Glass Bridges is an adventure with unique and unexpected twist. The concept of the story is very well clear and every scene is not predictable like the other books. I also like how the author comes up with this kind of story.

The story tells us the adventure of Kaia and the other characters to the cursed Kingdom of Mar. They must deliver a message to the king of the kingdom of Mar on how the curse could be lifted. As their journey started, their group faced a lot of hindrances and they also discovered an unbelievable truth that lies behind the Kingdom of Mar. Kaia will also uncover some secrets from her past.

When I started reading this book, I’m so confused on the characters because many of them were introduced on the first chapter and I’m a little bit not sure if who is speaking. I need to read from the start again and list the characters so I can understand their relationship with each other. Thankfully, as I go further, I already can go with the flow of the story. The characters are very likable, but some of them are not fully developed yet. There are also times when I can’t connect with the characters.

I like Kaia Stone. She is tough and wise. She is willing to take risks if doing so will answer her questions.

Kaia’s sister, Elania, is my ideal sister. She supports her decision and she’s also willing to sacrifice her life just to help her sister. I’m just happy when she wasn’t killed by those arrows.

I also like the princes. Even if they have different mothers, you can feel their love for each other. I find them funny. My favorite part was when Warrin, one of the princes, won a game and he gave some of his winnings to his brothers. When one of them died and the other was turned, you can feel how sad they are to lose those two brothers.

Pelliab, the other person named by the Utdrendans, is very mysterious. He rarely talks with the team and if he does, he only speak a little.

What I just don’t like here is the way it was narrated on the first few chapters. The conversation between the characters does have the same voice which is kind of confusing. I can’t see how the characters feel while saying those words.

For the ending, it leaves me hanging. I am already liking the story and here I am again, with the third book I’ve read that the ending is incomplete. The good thing here is how this book ends, which will definitely make the reader wait and crave for the next book.

I have a lot to say about this book but all of it will only spoil you so I decided to not write about it. All I can say is that this book is very fun to read. You’ll enter a world where an unexpected twist and turns together with magical things happens. I am recommending this book to those who wanted to read some unique and intriguing scary world. If you plan to read this, tell me what you think of this story by sending me a flird!

About the Author - Divider

Hello, everyone! My name is Jessica. Pleasure to make your acquaintance. 🙂 Allow me to 14235885.jpgshare a bit about myself with you. I was born and raised in the beautifully sunny state of Florida. I attended the University of Miami, where I spent more time than I care to admit daydreaming of a faraway land called Acu. Upon graduating with a degree in English and Political Science in 2014, I put pen to paper and brought Acu to life—so was born “Capering on Glass Bridges.” Currently, I am working on a second novel.
