The Glass Swallow by Julia Golding Book Review

The Glass Swallow by Julia Golding.Book Review by Cindy Mai.Book Summary: Rain has a secret that threatens her whole world. Rain designs exquisite stained glass for the windows of her city. But the law is clear: it is forbidden for girls to be part of the glassmakers' guild. To keep her secret hidden, Rain leaves home and travels to a strange new country. Her trip becomes a nightmare when bandits attack and she is abandoned in a society on the edge of disaster. To survive, she must discover new strengths in herself and seek out the other people that this society has scorned, including a young falconer who is one of the "untouchables." The Glass Swallow is a companion book to Julia Golding's acclaimed novel Dragonfly.
Cindy's Summary: So, basically, Rain lives with her father who makes and designs glass windows and Rain does the same, but girls aren't allowed to do that. Then, the King and Queen of Holt......ahhh!!! It's Ramil and Taoshira from Dragonfly!!!! I love that book!!!!!......wanted an apprentice of Master Torrent, Rain's father to go to the palace and design some windows, but none of the apprentice wants to travel the long and dangerous journey to the city. So, it was decided that Rain travel with her cousin, Shadow with an ambassador, but everything goes wrong when bandits attacked the group and killed everyone including the ambassador and his wife and her cousin, Shadow. The bandits killed everyone, except Rain and took her to the leader of the bandits. Luckily, she was saved by a Magharnan scavenger, Peri Falconer, one of the untouchables. Peri leaves her with the city officials who told her to become a servant since it would be a very long time until she can go home. Unfortunately, Magharnan was like in ruins, especially when bandits attacked again, the Master of the city disappeared, leaving all citizens in desperate position with no food and shelter and with bandits roaming freely on the streets, all except the scavengers. The scavengers have food and shelter and everything they need. Peri Falconer, felt sorry for leaving Rain by herself, so he sets off to save her. So along with Rain came Mikel, an old, bondsman Rain came to know and a little boy who named himself Retsam, which was Master backwards, since he was really the Master until his advisors all left him alone. Peri's mother liked everyone Peri brought home, except for Rain, saying she was trouble. Rain, then decided to go the bandit leader, Krital to persuade him to help establish order again in Magharnan. Along the way, of course, Rain fell in love with Peri and such......yep. I shall end it like this.
Rate: (1-10): 9.9See, this book really isn't bad, since all Julia Golding books aren't bad. But I really think Dragonfly have more adventure. For some reason, Dragonfly is really like the book Fire by Kristen Cashore.... I spelled her name right this time. I really love Dragonfly. 
I"ll go to the quotes  now." 'Perhaps.' unable to resist, he dipped his head down and stole a ________."Guess what happened. it's quite romantic. .___.
"A tender feeling uncurled inside Rain when she realized what he had said."This wasn't a love at first sight thing, but they fell in love pretty fast. Still it was cute, though he sounded more like a teacher. LOL.
"If the Master wasn't careful, he was in danger of developing a serious crush on the little glassmaker."Oooo...Peri's actually describing himself. So he's jealous already......
"The fisherman looked at Peri's hand. To touch it would be breaking a thousand taboos."See, Peri is special, an untouchable by citizens. BTW, taboos are rules/laws.
"Rain did not pull away when he circled her loosely with his arms."They're so romantic already.
" 'Aw, yuck!'  " Ha! Caught!
"Peri's arrow hit Rain high on the shoulder."There was also an arrow in Dragonfly. It's best when the boy is worried that the girl is hurt.
" 'Yes.' "That yes basically means "I do." Get it?

It's a romantic book, but it doesn't beat Dragonfly. Dragonfly was more like hate at first sight. LOL.
