After siphoning her own blood to defeat her enemy, Opal Cowan has lost her powers. More, she's immune to the effects of magic. Opal is now an outsider looking in, spying on those with the powers she once had, powers that make a difference in her world.  

Until spying through the glass becomes her new power. Suddenly the beautiful pieces she makes flash in the presence of magic. She also discovers that someone has stolen some of her blood--and that finding it might let her regain her powers. Or learn if they're lost forever...

I thought that Spy Glass was a good conclusion to the Glass series. There was a lot of action, and some new interesting characters.

What a disappointing series and protagonist, especially given the calibre of her first heroine (Yllena?). You get tired of the same old, same old theme - heroine gets captured and beaten up and betrayed, mostly because of her own stupidity.

I was kinda disappointed about this book the other two were done way better its almost like she was forced to write this one. there was alot of areas that were rushed and not explained well but overall it was ok.

This is easily the best of the trilogy, and thank goodness for that. By the time I got to Spy Glass, I just wanted to see the ending and expected to whip through it and take a sigh of relief. Well the relief came in when the story was a lot tighter than the others and in the maturation of the main character. I think that the author has a penchant for her main characters to end up with bad boys (reformed or otherwise) and it would have been more interesting to see her break this pattern and maybe even leave Opal with no boyfriend or husband. Still, it didn't ruin the story and it was a fun read.
