Who Would You Pick-Glass Series by Maria V. Snyder

September 27th, 2010 by Debbie's World of Books

I wanted to have some fun awhile back so I started this little series of Who Would You Pick?  It’s been awhile since I posted the last showdown but I really wanted to get back into this because I love hearing everyone’s opinions.

Originally I started noticing that a lot of the books I was reading involved love triangles and quite a number of them aren’t clearly black or white on who the heroine should choose.    Both guys all have their good points and are not totally bad.  So how about a series of who would you pick if you had the two guys fighting over YOU and why?

The pick for today is Kade vs Devlin from the Glass series by Maria V. Snyder.  Note: I am referring to Devlin post losing his magic.

  • Both guys are so sweet especially when Devlin was trying to make amends to Opal
  • It might be hard to get past the fact that Devlin used to torture people even if he is a reformed man now
  • Kade is so tied to being a storm dancer that anyone who wants to be with him has to be willing to stay in his village
  • Devlin seems like he would be more of a free spirit

I know this might come as a surprise to a lot of readers of this series but I would have to choose Devlin.  Yes, it would be hard to get over the fact that he used to torture people but I guess it comes down to if you can forgive someone heinous actions if you believe they are truly a new person.  I think once he lost his magic and the craving that came with it he was an entirely different person.  He was so sweet in trying to make amends and woo Opal.  He also seems like he would be a fun guy to be with.  He would be up for any sort of adventure.

Kade is a great guy but a little too straight-laced for me.  Plus, he has is whole storm dancer commitments.  He would always be tied to his home and that would come first.  I just can’t picture him being as much fun as Devlin.

So that’s what I have to offer.  Who would be your pick and why?

    I love this idea. I’m not a big fan of love triangle myself. I like to know whose the one for the heroine and it really upsets me when I’m hoping its one person and ends up being the other. I haven’t read this series in awhile and I don’t think I read them all but I remember really liking Kane.

    Yeah, I always get my favorites and am disappointed if the heroine ends up with the other guy.

    I haven’t had a chance to read this one yet, I’ve only read the first in the study series and Inside/Out by this author. I like her writing though so I imagine I’ll get to them at some point.

    I plan on reading the Study series next since I heard it’s even better than the Glass series.
