About the Book

Fans of Three Dark Crowns and Red Queen will devour book two in the #1 New York Times bestselling Burning Glass trilogy, about a teen empath and the secret dangers of her expanding power.

Sonya and Anton may have brought about a revolution, but can they protect their homeland—and their love—with so many forces threatening to tear them apart?

The empire has fallen, Valko faces trial, and Sonya is finally free from her fate as Sovereign Auraseer. But Sonya’s expanding abilities are just as unstable as the new government of Riaznin. Not only can she feel the emotions of others but, unlike most Auraseers, she’s learned to make others feel what she’s feeling as well. And with her relationship falling apart, Sonya isn’t immune to her power’s sinister temptations.

Now, as Sonya fights to contain her own darkness, she senses a new evil lurking in the shadows of the palace. Someone from Sonya’s past has returned seeking revenge—and she won’t be satisfied until Sonya has suffered for her mistakes.

Educator and Librarian Resources

Critical Praise

“Sonya’s first-person narration is filled with descriptions of the emotions of those around her. The effect can be disorienting, but perhaps that’s the point. With this second installment, the Broken Glass trilogy hits its stride.” —Kirkus Reviews

Praise for BURNING GLASS: “Dark, intricate and utterly immersive, Burning Glass will take you on a journey you’ll never forget. Heart-pounding action meets deadly intrigue and aching romance, drawing you deep inside a story full of complex questions.” —Amie Kaufman, New York Times bestselling co-author of the award-winning These Broken Stars, This Shattered World and Illuminae

“Filled with mystery and intrigue, betrayal and passion, Purdie’s political debut will sweep readers away to a world that is not that different from their own.” —School Library Journal

“Richly imagined, compelling, and darkly romantic, this book will leave you begging for more!” —Sara B. Larson, author of the Defy trilogy

“I feel like BURNING GLASS has catered to all of my YA book needs: Russian-flavored fantasy, a neat but not overly complicated magic system, a flawed but wonderful heroine, and the only kind of love triangle I can enjoy (one involving competing brothers!)” —Allison Senecal, Old Firehouse Books

“Purdie expertly weaves a complex storyline with well-developed characters in a vividly described world to entrance readers with her words.” —Desert News, Salt Lake City
