Ashes of Glass is a young adult novel that is romantically inclined. The focuses on Arella Marceau. She is the daughter of a wealthy merchant but situation changes and she finds herself working as a maid at a palace. The prince is charming and she falls for him creating this beautiful story of love, romance, survival, and power.
I fell in love with the story from the beginning and was just intensely connected with Arella. Her personality and character description was spot on. I found myself bonding with a perfectly drawn story and a lovely swaying flow of connectivity between something similar to pride and prejudice.
I particularly enjoyed the levels of integration between the classes. The story had a nice flow to it and I enjoyed the concept of the work. Prince Friederic was a charming character. He meets the young girl in a fairly surprising way and their relationship is not to be found out. He also possesses some secrets of his own which made the story quite intriguing.
The cover design is very appealing and the book is suitable for romance and young adult readers. I recommend it to this particular reader.
