Families can talk about power corrupting many in The Shadowglass. Who wants power for themselves? Who wants to make the world better? Where does Tea fall for most of the book? Why? The Shadow Glass speaks to a generation who hold a deep fondness for their childhood, who still long to believe in magic and adventure, but also to those who are proud to be different. Ultimately Winning writes a love letter to 80’s fantasy fans, fandoms, and those enamoured by nostalgia.
There’s so much to lub about this book. I lub the erplings. I lub kettu. I lub lubs. I even lub Kunin Yillda.
THE SHADOWGLASS | Kirkus Reviews
I feel like her quest is only strengthened by this book as she uncovers secrets that would change the face of the world. The very stories we grew up on. Even as she becomes a story herself. This book shows us many more sides of Tea, even while she success in hiding other parts of herself. I mean, Tea loves books and libraries, and I love Tea. So enough said, alright?

Eleanor Rose Hartley uniquely experienced those two worlds while never truly belonging to either. When Eleanor’s mother, a close personal maid to Mrs Pembroke, died, she became the ward of Mr and Mrs Pembroke of Granborough House. She lived an early life that promised so much potential and opportunity, an early life where she was treated as a daughter, a life where she bonded with Pembroke’s only son Charles, where she was taught to dance and behave with etiquette and most enduringly, read. When Mrs Pembroke died, the master had no intention of continuing with Eleanor’s privileges. She became a seventeen-year-old servant in the household under the command of the conniving head housekeeper. A Cinderella-type fall from grace, openly scorned and ill-treated by the master and the senior housemaids. Eleanor's only friends are other young female maids who also suffer at the hands of Mr Pembroke - with unwanted pregnancies and discharge without references, condemning them to extreme poverty and homelessness. I disliked the main character, a lot. I found nothing sympathetic at all despite what the author expressed to us. Her mother worked for a woman and she and the woman became friends. Our main character was born, and when she was young her mother died. Her mother's mistress raised her like a daughter, and then the she died. She was made into a servant in the house. She wants to live that life again. Mainly because her adoptive 'guardian' remarried? or was married? to a man who is disgusting and rapes his maids.
