"There is a reason for everything. You might not be able to figure it out, and time might have made us all forget it, but the reason is there all the same."

"Life is like molten glass. It flows, it's flexible, it can be molded and shaped and...what do you say? Ah, yes. It holds vast potential. You have a number of uncertainties in your melt right now. But they will always be there in one form or another. Always. Unlike molten glass, life can't be fixed or frozen into a pretty vase and placed on a shelf to gather dust."

Something is wrong with the Stormdancers' glass orbs. Being the "glass Magician" Opal (from Fire Study) is called upon to see if she can determine the source of the problem. When a glass orb breaks the life of a Stormdancer is lost. The Stormdancers harvest the power of storms thereby weakening them so they will cause less damage. If the Stormdancers can't perform their tasks lives will be lost. As Opal and Zitora investigate the problem Opal's own life becomes endangered.

Romance, murder, mystery and a dose of humor are in this one. Read the Study series first so you know who everyone is and have a better understanding of the world Snyder has created. If you love the Study series this is a must read. Yelena makes a brief appearance as do Ari and Janco. I gave it 5 out of 5 stars.
