Product Description

Review

"With a fantastically stylized narrative and a diverse cast of characters, Albertan Gail Sidonie Sobat brings her gorgeous Ingamald trilogy to a close. With Sobat’s style further developed in a new world, she addresses moral and ethical dilemmas not seen before in young adult literature." — Calgary Herald "It is very rare to see such beautiful and poetic prose in books for adolescents. Her choice of diction and use of accents adds a unique flavour to her novel, allowing the reader to truly feel as if they have been transported back to a distant world still filled with magic. . . " — Children's Book News

From the Back Cover

Wonders beckon beyond the glass device of the devious Morton Winter! But with such wonders comes great peril, as children disappear. Nevertheless, the intrepid witch Ingamald and the twelve—fingered girl Yda pass through to the other side, searching for the means to thaw their own frozen world, Hinterlnd.

By Tara Heart on Oct. 26 2006
Format: Paperback
A Glass Darkly is a stunning conclusion to Gail Sobat's trilogy. The book is imaginative and moving. Sobat spins this tale with such sensitivity and wit, you can't help but fall in love with the fictional world of Hinterlund and of course our quick witted heronie, Ingamald. The world beyond the magic mirror is filled with adventure, magic and more importantly heart. A definite must read.

Format: Paperback
The third in the series of the author's saga of brave womeyn challenging the authority of the evil patriarchal establishment. Yawn. Sobat tries to establish herself as a brave warrior who challenges our preconceptions of authority. This is a book of the future that could have been written in the 1960s. The war is over, Gail. You won. Time to move on.

Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
Gail Sidonie Sobat has written some amazing fantasy stories. This one is no exception. I highly recommend it on its own but especially in combination with her other works set in this world.
