Through a Glass

Rated 4.67/5 based on 3 reviews
Irene, a gifted young artist, always paints with a mirror strategically positioned behind her, as an aid with perspective. As she puts the finishing touches to her latest painting, and studies its reflection in the mirror, she is shocked to see an extremely tall man, half hidden by the trees staring back at her. Irene had not placed a figure in the painting. So who was he? Where did he come from? More

Review by: Patricia Walker on Nov. 13, 2014 :
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.
