The Glasswright’s Master
Mindy L. Klasky
Roc. June 2004, $6.99, 340 pp.
ISBN: 0451459822

The kingdom of Morenia ruled by King Hal is under siege by a fleet of Liantine ships blockading the harbor and a Briantan army surrounding the city. A battering ram is being used to open the gates to the city while the army of Morenia is getting ready to fight. Their efforts are doomed by traitors from within the castleso King Hal, his wife, Rani Trader and a few trusted allies flee through a secret passage shown to them by a Touched woman.

The Fellowship of Jair, a secret cabal of men and women located in every kingdom in the world engineered The King’s downfall because he chose to oppose them. The fugitives flee to Sarmonia where they hope to have the aid of the King and his army to win back Hal’s throne. The Fellowship gets words of the group’s whereabouts and make plans to kill them but Hal is a strong spokesman for his cause and Rani has powers that she doesn’t know about that could change the course of battle.

This is the fifth and last book of this well written and enthralling fantasy series and it is one of the most rewarding and poignant works in the collection. All the loose ends are tied up, the ending is everything the reader could hope for but there is also sadness in THE GLASSWRIGHTS’ MASTER as good people die because of the evil of a cabal of power hungry traitors. Mindy L. Klasky proves she’s a world class fantasist by her ability to make the audience believe in the existence of the world where Morenia is located.
