Y I Lee was born in Swindon Wiltshire, the eldest of three children. From a young age her greatest joy was to curl up with a good book. They became her escape from a troubled childhood. Over time she naturally progressed into writing. At the age of ten, she ambitiously attempted her first novel but quickly gave up. However, the seed was planted, and in the coming years in between a successful singing career she continued to put pen to paper, writing poetry and short stories. She's always had a great love for animals, especially horses. And thanks to a friend, she also grew to love Fancy rats, and spent a number of happy years breeding and showing them. Understandably, horses and rats often find their way into her books.
In the past few years, Y I Lee found herself in the enviable position of being able to write full time, and her love of fantasy has found its full expression.
Y I Lee and her husband Keith live in the UK, in the beautiful county of Warwickshire.

This has to be up high on the list of best books I've read this year. The characters take the reader on a journey of longing laced with a growing love and the fear of what happens if their quest fails. Each character is so well formed the reader can picture them and what is happening around them throughout the story which has a depth all of its own. The reader takes every breath the characters take, every step along the road they travel and feels the love, friendship bonds and the fear that surrounds them all. I struggled not to read this story but to put the book down unfinished and found myself losing time in large chunks as I became wrapped up in the events happening in the world Through a Glass.
Many thanks to the author for offering me a copy of this wonderful book for an honest review. I do not hesitate to recommend it to anyone of any age

I received a free ebook from the author in exchange for an honest review.
I really enjoyed reading this. The cover really caught my interest as well as the synopsis of the book. Through a Glass is a very well written fantasy. It takes you on an amazing, and also terrifying adventure. The main characters Irene and Stagman must set out to find and free the prince's stallion that has been captured by the enemies. Of course their adventure isn't an easy one as they encounter tree branches that come to life, creatures called erzats, and goblins. They also get help from some very friendly animals who of course can talk. My favorite was Ezekiel, the grumpy, but very funny rat who's afraid of heights. The ending really wasn't a surprise to me, as i kinda guessed it from the beginning. I'm happy that this story isn't over yet, and that there is going to be a second book.
If you love adventure and fantasy then this is the book for you!

Few lines caught my interest and I could not stop reading the book, “Innumerable thoughts buzzed in her head vying for attention”. Tell-tale worked for me and the book is a good buy for sure. Readers who would like something out of the box, you have got to pick this book.
