Falcon in the Glass was an amazing historical fiction action book. It swept you right into Victorian London from its very first pages with its vivid descriptions of Venice, Italy. The book also does a great job of describing glassblowing which makes it very interesting because you are able to glean information from the book while getting an enjoyable action and adventure read. This book reminds me a lot of The Thief Lord by Cornelia Funke because it is set in Venice and it is also about a group of kids overcoming challenges on the street. I recommend this book for kids 10 and older.
