Title: Through Glass (Glass #1)
Rebecca Ethington
Tour Organizer: Rockstar Book Tours
Release Date: September 20, 2013

Everyone remembered the day the sky went black. The day the sun was wiped from the sky. They remember the wind as it brought in the darkness; the way the earth shook and everything changed.

Everyone remembered the screams as the darkness ate those who were out in the open, those who had surrounded themselves by light, and those who made noise.

Everyone remembered the voice from the sky and the way food disappeared.

At least, that’s what I hoped. I hoped that there was an ‘everyone’ that would remember because I am not sure how many are left, how many survived. Or if anyone did.

I hoped that I wasn’t alone.

I remembered that day.

I remembered because it was the day I became alone.

It was the day that everything was perfect until the monsters took it away. Then the house went silent and the birds stopped singing. It was the day when everyone disappeared, everyone except the boy, the only person I have seen in two years.

The boy I talk to through the glass.


If I focused hard enough I could almost feel the breeze against my skin as well as the warmth of the sun. I could maybe even hear the beautiful twitter of birds as they sang to the clouds. Clouds. I could almost remember the way they looked in the sky. I could get lost in the memories that filtered through some long forgotten piece of my mind. I could smell lilac in the air, I could feel grass on my fingertips.

But I couldn’t.

Not really.

It had been so long since I had seen those things that my memories were broken and exactly how sunlight felt had become a mystery.

Although I could remember the last day I saw them, the last day my window was open. The last day I wasn’t alone.

  1. It's very intriguing, I really want to know the background of the story, why the earth changed so much :D

  2. Great cover! I agree with Iriel that it sounds intriguing and makes me want to read more. :)

    1. Oops. I did not mean to press publish yet. What I find most intriguing is the idea to find yourself living in a nightmare without knowing if you and the guy you see through glass are all that's left.
