Dark Side Of The Mirror - R.L Austin

Dark Side Of The Mirror is an engaging story and quickly captures the readers imagination.
Emily’s parents have to relocate to San Francisco and with money being tight they have no choice but to stay with her uncle.
Shortly after the move Emily starts to hear voices from the mirrors all around the house and soon learns to keep this quiet otherwise her parents whisk her off to see a therapist.
But one day one of the voices actually talks direct to her – and so starts her adventure which includes hidden powers, an uncle who is not all he seems and a couple of family secrets that are about to change her life.

I would say that this book would be aimed at the YA market because of the way it is written. The story flows along at a steady pace but the descriptions are very minimal throughout. Saying that though I still thoroughly enjoyed the story and i’m slightly older than YA ;).

The characters are likeable and you feel like boooing every time Emily’s uncle makes an appearance and starts causing problems for Emily and her new friend Tyler.

The story has a definite ending however there are a couple of loose ends leaving the story wide open for a sequel or two.
So i’m looking forward to hearing more about Emily and her new found powers.

If you enjoyed the film “ The Adjustment Bureau “ then you should enjoy this book too.

Dark Side Of The Mirror is now available in our
