The Glass Casket by McCormick Templeman
Death hasn't visited Rowan Rose since it took her mother when Rowan was only a little girl. But that changes one bleak morning, when five horses and their riders thunder into her village and through the forest, disappearing into the hills. Days later, the riders' bodies are found, and though no one can say for certain what happened in their final hours, their remains prove that whatever it was must have been brutal.
Rowan's village was once a tranquil place, but now things have changed. Something has followed the path those riders made and has come down from the hills, through the forest, and into the village. Beast or man, it has brought death to Rowan's door once again.
Only this time, its appetite is insatiable.
Time for Court!
The Story: The synopsis makes it sound a bit interesting but it's not something that really holds my attention. I think I'd like to see a little more into it before I make any judgement though. It sounds a bit vague even though it is a synopsis.
The Cover: Where do I start? While I like the concept, it seems a bit off. If I'm not mistaken those are fingers going into the girls mouth? That just seems a bit odd and weird. But it looks like they are someone else's fingers going into her mouth. I'm not exactly sure how I feel. I mean I don't have a problem with fingers in mouths on covers at all, it just seems oddly looking in this cover.
The Verdict: Not Guilty! I think I'll have to pass. Nothing of this book is exactly calling to me but that doesn't mean it won't be good. I just would rather see what other people thing before buying it.
What do you guys think? Leave your comments down below on whether you think it's Guilty or Not Guilty and we'll get to discussing!
