    In a kingdom far away, a poor girl with magical talents she cannot control, practices her family's craft by making glass. Once, those with magical talents were allowed to infuse crafts openly and sell them at market. But times have changed and now artisans are arrested and persecuted. Her father fears for her life. She challenges him, gets caught, he is hauled away and...is pulled through a magic mirror that she made. She grabs a friend and they follow a few days later. Imagine her surprise when In a kingdom far away, a poor girl with magical talents she cannot control, practices her family's craft by making glass. Once, those with magical talents were allowed to infuse crafts openly and sell them at market. But times have changed and now artisans are arrested and persecuted. Her father fears for her life. She challenges him, gets caught, he is hauled away and...is pulled through a magic mirror that she made. She grabs a friend and they follow a few days later. Imagine her surprise when she realizes that on the other side of the mirror is a place where those with magic are revered and those without are arrested and penalized. This is a story that has fun with the ideas implicit in mirror images and what that might mean in ways both systemic and individual. The tale itself is a good one: the characters are compelling and engaging, the action is strong and the twists and turns keep the reader engaged. This is a really good middle grade reader for those seeking adventure stories with fantasy elements. I received my copy from the publisher through edelweiss.

    I was surprised how fast I got captivated, and wanted to read more! This is very well written, great for any avid readers! My daughter is 9yo and enjoyed it too, but she already reads young adult books. I got my copy from the giveawys on goodreads.

My fifth grade library patrons will love this magical fantasy of two worlds, one filled with powerful magic and the other trying to stamp out all signs of it. Halan and Nolan are great female characters who are both trying to figure out just who they are supposed to be and to deal with their oddities. Evil and magic bring them together and if they can manage to sort out a few misconceptions, they just may be able to bring peace to a troubled kingdom. Supporting male characters Soren and Marcus round out an outstanding group of young people that will have 5th-8th graders cheering and hoping for a book 2. (Review of digital ARC from EdelweissPlus)
