This was an exciting, enjoyable read. The first in a planned new series, this book sets the stage well for more adventures in future installments. The main characters fit well together; each has certain insecurities, was easy for me to relate to, and also, had some unique strengths. For the most part, I really enjoyed their interactions together, but there were a few times that Marie’s insecurities and feelings of low self-esteem sort of got old and irritating. This became less of a problem for me in the second half of the book and I honestly feel that her character is growing and evolving as she begins to sort out some of her inner turmoil. With Henry, I occasionally had a problem with the way he tended to shut-down and close-off his feelings – seemingly treating Marie with cold indifference. It was a relief when later in the story most off these issues were satisfactorily resolved. Another favorite character I can not wait to find out more about in future adventures is the boss-man, Abram. In this book, he’s a wealthy, arrogant manipulator, often compared to a snake. He is fascinating and mysterious. I am looking forward to finding out more about him and learning if he truly is as powerful as he seems to think he is, or as slimy as Marie finds him. My dollar says we are just seeing the tip of his iceberg and that he is, indeed, a truly evil antagonist. It will be fun to find out more in future episodes, I think. Speaking of Iceberg, let us not forget to mention the beautiful, wild stallion who seems to be empathically connected to both Marie and Henry. Proud and strong, fearsome and fearless, I loved him. There were more fabulous characters, as well, and I hope to see more of each of them in future adventures. Recommended - a rousing, fun romp that fans of paranormal romance adventure should relish.This book was provided to me by the author and Pump Up Your Book Virtual Book Tours in return for an honest review.

Review by ValerieEbook provided by author for reviewI liked this book from the get go! I really liked how Marie’s character was shielded from painful memories by the entity named Glazier throughout the entire story. It made for a very interesting dilemma for the guy who falls hard for her, Henry. He knows that she has painful memories and knows that if she remembers them, she may no longer want him in her life...and so begins the game of cat and mouse between them.While a good part of the story explains how Marie discovers her hidden abilities and is trained to use them, it was the mission they go on that hooked me. She and Henry are undercover spies sent to infiltrate the home of a very powerful man. From the moment he lays eyes on her, Ambassador Abbass, a man used to getting anything he wants, has malicious intentions. Both she and Henry know and suspect he will do anything he can to get Marie alone. Henry and Marie constantly battle the Glazier power they have as time and again the Ambassador thwarts their efforts to find what they need to complete their mission. My love of this story, a horse, enters the picture and plays a very important part in Marie’s efforts to finish the mission, as well as two friends she and Henry meet also staying at the Ambassador’s estate.A very enjoyable story that leaves you breathless and hanging until the last word and I’m very, very glad to say that the author has written a sequel that will be released later this year!!!
i just finished Glazier right now and I always put books I pick up into 3 categories 1. Books I just cant get into 2. Books I enjoy reading in my spare time and 3. Books I start and cant put down until i'm done or my brain starts hurting lol lets put it this way my kids had to get their own dinner tonight because I am not stepping away from my computer until I read the whole book and no matter how tempted I got to skip ahead and answer certain questions I made myself wait for it to unfold. Again thank you for my arc e-copy of Glazier I loved every minute of it truly a wonderful read thanks Bri it was awesome! <3,Terri dion
This is almost a case of Lara Croft meets wonderwoman, meets James Bond - except that there is far more to the plot than this, and the theme is much more mysterious and subtle. I love the concept of ‘spies with paranormal powers' and the novel certainly has plenty of action and intrigue, but for me it was the characters who really make the story.First there is Marie, unable to remember her past - and unsure whether it would be a good thing to do so. I really liked Marie. She’s sassy and courageous, but she’s also unsure of herself and not afraid to seek comfort from Henry when she needs it, or to enjoy being a woman. I was so glad she was not one of those ‘kickass’ heroines who is so ‘butch’ she really doesn’t need a man - but that doesn’t mean she can’t ‘kick ass’ when she needs to, and there are plenty of occasions where she uses her special ‘Glazier’ power to full advantage and risks her own safety for those she cares about.I totally fell for Henry. I liked his charm and sensitivity and his strength, and adore the little acts of old fashioned courtesy that he performs because he cares about Marie. After believing himself to be the only person to have 'Glazier' powers he is overjoyed to find there is another, and delighted to become her trainer. However his attraction to her soon becomes more than that of a colleague and mentor, but he will not allow himself to take their relationship further, even when Marie makes it obvious she cares for him too. He is afraid that one day she will remember her past, and someone else will lay claim to her affections. Then there is Elias, Henry's friend who runs their favourite eating place. He has a few secrets of his own, as do Shae and Colin Straeker, who they meet on an undercover mission in Egypt, to find and retrieve sensitive date from the immensely rich and powerful Ambassador Abass, who makes his unwanted attraction to Marie evident from their first meeting. As the protagonist, there's not much to like about Abass, and he makes a worthy villain, but there is one other character in this book who intrigued me, and that is Abram, Henry and Marie's 'employer'. Marie neither likes nor trusts him, and I had the feeling there is more to Abram than is revealed in this book. Another character who deserves a mention, is not even human - he's a horse. Being a horse lover myself I eagerly devour any mention of horses - but I did groan inwardly a little at first, at what seemed to be another instance of that old cliche - a wild, untamable Arabian stallion, who will only allow the heroine to ride him. However, the fact that Marie was able to communicate with him and gain his confidence, seemed perfectly logical, given her 'Glazier' power, a communication also shared by Henry, and 'Iceberg' himself is beautifully portrayed.I liked that we had both Marie and Henry's P.O.Vs, and although I know some people don't like first person narratives, I love them and felt the author slipped seemlessly into whichever of the two main characters was being highlighted at the time.SUMMARYThis is a highly original and enjoyable novel. If you like fast paced action, combined with paranormal elements and plenty of tension between the main characters, this is the book for you. I was pulled up a few times by 'proofing errors' but not enough to spoil my enjoyment. My main complaint is that the book ended just as I thought we were about to have some answers. The exciting climax had me on the edge of my seat, and the conclusion was satisfactory - as far as it went - but I want to know more! There are still a lot of questions unanswered - which is a perfect way to entice a reader to read the next book in the series. I for one can't wait!
Glazier is a term to define a type of power a person is endowed with that enables them to remember things better, have super human speed and strength and have to ability to influence peoples thoughts.Captain Henry Tenison believed that he alone was the only one, until Marie was brought into his life. He would now become her protector and trainer. He would teach her how to trust Glazier whenever the situation would warrant it. It could be possible to control this ability so well that you could use it to your advantage and that is just what a man named Abram is planning on doing.When Marie Kincaid awakens in an infirmary, she doesn't remember anything that happened before she arrived. Whenever she tries to think back it's as if a black thick wall blocks her from remembering anything of the life she had before. When Henry helps her through her recovery process and subsequent training in using her Glazier ability, they will become the world's most formidable supernatural spies.In Henry, Marie is able to sense that there is a great purpose in her life and tries in vain to remember anything that would connect to world before him. Through Henry's protection, she begins to fall in love with him but he won't allow it, not until he knows that Marie's memory is restored and that there isn't someone else waiting to love her from her past.In the newest novel by Bri Clark, Glazier, brings the reader into a new type of spy and one that when unleashed is beyond the control of any human being. Now Henry begins to plot a way for him and Marie to escape and find a way to live normal lives if that is possible before things get out of control.I received this ebook compliments of Pump Up Your Book Tours for my honest review and LOVED this one! It's the perfect blend of genre's from young adult, supernatural, paranormal to spy-mystery, intrigue thriller all rolled into one sensational story. The characters of Henry and Marie are believable especially in light of their abilities and the people who would use and exploit them for their own purposes. You feel sorry for them because at some point they almost become like human lab rats inside their secure bunker that is geared to keep them safe. I would rate this one at a 5 out of 5 stars. The subject matter is well suited for the young adult audience who loves a little spicy action adventure out of the normal fiction genre.
After finding out that her husband and children died in a terrible car accident, Marie is devastated. She runs from her life, not really knowing where she is going or what she is going to do. She falls asleep and wakes up in an infirmary, with no memory of who she is. She's told that she is special – she has powers known as Glazier. She trains with Henry, the only other known Glazier, to become a spy.Henry has been alone for a long time. Having Glazier has made him different – not able to become too involved with anybody. He is thrilled when Marie comes into his life, he finally has somebody who understands him. He holds her at arms length though – determined to not get too involved with her. Henry realizes that one day Marie may remember her past, and remember somebody that she loves.I really enjoyed these 2 characters, and I liked how the story included both Henry and Marie's point of view. I found myself not wanting Marie to remember her past – not just because of Henry but because her past contains so much pain and sorrow. I couldn't imagine having to deal with losing my husband and children, I don't think I could go on.This book has a lot of writing errors, but the story is incredible. It's wonderfully unique and intriguing. It's a paranormal story – but it's not your usual vampires or shape-shifters. There is plenty of sexual tension, even though the relationship doesn't get very heated. Henry is just a great guy – very protective over Marie, even though she can kick some major butt on her own. It's sweet though, I like to see a protective side in a guy. It seemed as though there was a lot more going on than what the story was saying. Also, the story left off at a point where I would think there would be a second installment. I'm really hoping there is! I was feeling pretty confused at the end, and I'm dying to know what is going on. I'm really hoping to read more about Henry and Marie.
I tried three times to read this book, but couldn't focus on it. Maybe it's just not my kind of book, but I really couldn't get into it. The writing was chaotic and sort of random. The plot itself wasn't much better. Maybe I'll try again in the future, but for now this book is officially my first "dropped" reading of 2011.
One of the worst books I've ever read
