Maybe it was because i expected so much after the sevenwaters trilogy, but i was definitely disappointed... the book wasn't horrible, but it did seem to take a lot longer to read... i ended up skipping large sections just to see if the ending was better.Was this review helpful?

'Foundation Book' OK for Now
After reading 'The Dark Mirror' the first thing I thought was that it was lacking something. The first books of Marillier's other series (Daughter of the Forest, Wolfskin) were wholesome and fufilling. This book only had a brief climax and you knew from chapter 3 that boy will find girl. It was an okay 'Foundation Book' as in the text that I know who the characters are and their backrounds and such. I didn't like it that when a suituation occured there were conversations about it from every person's view. I don't understand why the author couldn't just let a character's position be known whithout having each and every one discuss it with their friends. There was too much speculation about the character's difficult tasks when in actuality the tasks didn't bring me to the edge of my seat. I only hope that the next book in this series is better.Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback. Report this reviewThank you, this review has been flagged.
