The Silver Glove Reviews
This story takes place fairly soon after the end of The Bronze King. Valentine has dropped her nickname of "Tina" because she feels it portrays her as a little girl and has picked up "Valli," which she feel is more mature. I notice that this also this also parallels the story, as the storytelling has matured somewhat and is more complex.Whereas the first story in the Sorcery Hall trilogy was pretty good, I found I liked this story much better. What I didn't see was any magic by Valentine. We learned that she has powers in The Bronze King and I was hoping to see more of them in this story. But that doesn't really happen. She does do a few magical things with the silver glove her grandmother sends her, but she really doesn't learn how to use her new powers. I would have liked to have seen this. The plot line in this story is enjoyable and easy to follow.The Silver Glove by Suzy McKee Charnas is an interesting tale of a teenage girl struggling with new powers while fighting to keep her family together. The story moves along at a good pace and gets quite exciting whenever the Claw is on the prowl.What I really want to know is when are we going to learn more about Sorcery Hall. What is the Hall? Do wizards go there to train? All we learn in this book is that it is under attack. Who is attacking it...and why? Will Valentine get to go there? I am hoping to find out the answers to all these questions in the final book of the Sorcery Hall trilogy, The Golden Thread.I rated this book a 7½ out of 10.
Valentine and her sorceress grandmother try to protect her mother from an evil wizard. Grades 4+
I wish I could remember this series better. I liked it, but no memory of it.
