Poison Study Trailer

Hey! I just found this awesome trailer for Poison Study and decided to share it with you. Like I said in my review, if you haven't read this yet, you DEFINITELY should.

Here is also a video of Maria V. Snyder talking about the next series she's writing:

Here is the awesome cover of Storm Glass, which came out in April:

As a glassmaker and a magician-in-training, Opal Cowen understands trial by fire. Now it’s time to test her mettle. Someone has sabotaged the Stormdancer clan’s glass orbs, killing their most powerful magicians. The Stormdancers—particularly the mysterious and mercurial Kade—require Opal’s unique talents to prevent it happening again. But when the mission goes awry, Opal must tap into a new kind of magic as stunningly potent as it is frightening. And the further she delves into the intrigue behind the glass and magic, the more distorted things appear. With lives hanging in the balance—including her own—Opal must control powers she never knew she possessed...powers that might lead to disaster beyond anything she’s ever known.
I REALLY need to get my hands on this! Read an exerpt here.
And after STORM GLASS comes SEA GLASS.

Like the colorful pieces of sea glass washed up on shore, Opal has weathered rough waters and twisting currents. But instead of finding a tranquil eddy, Opal is caught in a riptide. Her unique glass messengers which allow instant communication over vast distances have become a vital part of Sitian society. Once used solely by the Councilors and magicians, other powerful factions are now vying for control. Control of the messengers equals control of Sitia. Unfortunately that also means control of Opal. If that isn’t enough of a problem, Opal’s determination to prove blood magic is still being used is met with strong resistance. The Council doubts her, her mentor doubts her, and even her family is concerned. When her world is turned upside down, she begins to doubt herself. In the end, Opal must decide who to believe, who to trust, and who has control—otherwise she will shatter into a million pieces and be swept out by the tide.
SEA GLASS comes out September 1st. I love the covers for both of these books. I can't wait to read them. And I still need to hunt down a copy of MAGIC STUDY. You can read an exerpt of SEA GLASS here.


  1. Love, love, love her books! :) I'm glad you're going to check out Storm Glass and I definitely can't wait Sea Glass.

  2. I had no idea an excerpt from Sea Glass was out, so thank you SO much for sharing! I can't wait until September for it to come out.


  3. Ooo! I'm currently reading Poison Study. I must finish it so I can then read Magic Study of course :)

    Oh oh, this is random (sorta) but the excerpt link you posted reminded me of this other book. You can read the first chapter here:

    That is, unless you've already read it ;)

  4. Oh, yes, I have already read the exerpt of The Dark Divine. It was so awesome! I can't wait to read the book!!!! :D
