“Sisters of Glass,” by Naomi Cyprus, is a book about tawams. Tawams are twins. Nalah, one of the twins, lives in New Hadar and the other twin, Halan, lives in the Magi Kingdom. The way to get from one place to another is by saying a few words and writing symbols on a special mirror.

Nalah is a Fifth Clan Thauma, which means she can work with the four different materials Thaumas work with and change them into a different shape. She can melt things too. Halan is a princess, but she isn’t a Thauma.

King Tam goes to New Hadar because he wants Nalah to make him a mirror. He offers Nalah and her father a lot of money.

After Nalah makes the mirror King Tam takes Nalah’s father to the Magi Kingdom. Nalah goes to the Zachary Tam’s house and sees King Tam kill his tawam Zachary Tam.

Halan goes to town with Soren. He traps her because he is actually Ironside. Nalah gets to the Magi Kingdom and the Rebels, who Ironside leads, bring her to their hideout. Nalah pretends she is her tawam Halan after meeting her. Ironside makes Halan look like a peasant, so she goes to work at the castle and finds out that her Father, King Tam is not her father. Read the book to find out who really is her father.

  I like that this book is about two different worlds. To me, it makes the book better. I like that the princess is not the powerful one, but the “peasant” (I guess I would call her that) is powerful.  I recommend this book to people who like books with magic, but also books that are sad. I think that both boys and girls would like this story if they like sad, but also adventurous stories.

    This sounds like an outstanding story! The only thing is, I would probably get confused with all the grammar and words I do not know the meanings of.

    Would you like it if it had three worlds?

    Yes, I would like three worlds. Maybe even four worlds.

    Nice Review! I think it is very informative but you made it very, very, confusing with all those new vocabulary words.
