The Glasswright book series by Mindy Klasky is a fantasy and young adult fiction series in which the author has written some truly exciting adventures. A lot of things happen in these 5 books in the series and you will meet some interesting and unique characters along the way.
The books are in the following order – The Glasswrights’ Apprentice, The Glasswrights’ Progress, The Glasswrights’ Journeyman, The Glasswrights’ Test, and The Glasswrights’ Master.
All of the books mainly follow one main character called Rani Trader and her quest regarding the new guild she is about to join. Some of the things that you will see in the series itself will be made clear in this Glasswright book series review.
The story starts off with the first book, The Glasswrights’ Apprentice where you get to meet the 13-year- old girl Rani Trader. She comes from a family that doesn’t have much but does anything they can to make sure their daughter can afford an apprenticeship in the most prestigious guild in the land, the Glasswright Guild.
Joining this guild will later bring respect and many riches if she succeeds but just as Rani is accepted, a terrible thing happens that collapses her entire life. She and the guild are blamed for killing the royal Prince which forces Rani to go on the run and try to clear her name. Much of the story that is about to follow in the other books unwinds here.
In the second book, The Glasswrights’ Progress, it has been two years after the incident in the first book and Rani is 15 and is now trying to recover from everything that has happened and rebuild her guild. She lives in the royal palace as she has proven to be a worthy warrior and a hero.
Her plans for rebuilding her guild are still put on hold as she gets kidnapped by the King’s own brother who takes Rani to a faraway land only to discover a horrible plot that is advancing against the king. She discovers an army of children that are being trained by the very evil man Sin-Hazar and Rani tries to save her kingdom by convincing the children to back away from the fight.
As we come to the middle of the series, the third book, The Glasswrights’ Journeyman, tells us about the events after Rani saves the entire kingdom of Morenia from the children army and she is now an 18- year-old girl. This is the story when the King and Rani travel to another land to seek help to rebuild the kingdom after a huge fire almost burns down everything to the ground.
The fourth book continues the story as Rani is back again in her guild and is now attempting to get a new title, a Glasswright Master. Many tests lie before her and you get to see if she succeeds in her final quest within the guild ranks.
The fifth book ends this amazing series as Rani finds out a terrible truth that might just destroy everything she cares about. Hopefully, you get the idea about the series from this Glasswright book series review.
