Praise
"Smart girls love scary stories, and Helen Grant gratifies that perverse taste with THE GLASS DEMON, a clever genre mash-up of bildungs­roman, horror tale, historical whodunit, buried-­treasure adventure and academic mystery."
"With its fascinating information on medieval folklore, unique setting, and increasingly claustrophobic sense of terror, this is an exhilarating page-turner that offers a cerebral blend of horror and mystery." (starred review)
From the Publisher
Annotation Receiving an unsolicited letter urging him on, medieval scholar Dr. Oliver Fox becomes convinced that he is destined to locate the long-lost stained glass windows from the Allergeiligen Abbey. So, Dr. Fox drags his seventeen-year-old daughter Lin along with him to Germany in search of this object. Shrouded in mystery and myth, many believe that these artifacts possess supernatural powers, and the locals in the small town stir Lin's imagination through fairy tale-like stories of evil spirits. Beyond the magical, it seems that there are other people in search of the windows who will go to great and violent lengths to possess the magical objects.
