The Glass Casket is written as if taking a leisurely stroll through a dream. A vividly macabre fairytale that puts a very different spin on touches of Cinderella, Little Red Riding Hood, Snow White, and maybe even Hansel and Gretel. The conversations are personable and you get a feeling the village is so secluded from the rest of the world that they don’t see the changing times that are right in front of their faces. Readers are slowly drizzled with building suspense as death, mystery, and a beautiful stranger start unfolding the story that is deceptively hiding the true darkness within. Rowan was an amazing character; who is she? What is this bad feeling she keeps feeling? Who is Fiona, and what is the village covering up?

“What I saw up there, I don’t know how to explain it. It’s a bad place, everyone knows that, but if you could have seen that man… his eyes, his tongue – they were gone, torn from him.”
Author McCormick Templeton is a talented writer who doesn’t mind killing off important characters, tossing in the perfect scandal, and giving readers a bit of morbidity. Shrouded in non-stop suspense, you’ll also get your fill of original fantasy. If you like the original dark and twisted Grim Brothers fairy tales, then this book will easily become one of your favorites.
