Sequel to Seventh Born! Thanks to Entangled Teen for the opportunity to read and review Mirror Bound by Monica Sanz! Sera doesn’t remember much of her past. She’s lived with Nikolai Barrington for the last two years. Barrington is helping Sera do everything she can to become an investigator because she wants to solve mysteries and help others as Barrington has helped her. She’s a seventh born shunned by everyone. Sera has also been tortured due to being a seventh born and Barrington has given her a place to heal in mind and body. She feels safe in his home and his staff treats her with love and kindness also. Sera has a crush on Barrington and she questions if it’s only because he’s made her feel safe and secure or more than that. Together they solve mysteries and hunt criminals, human and supernatural. Barrington’s tumultuous past is partially revealed, as is Sera’s past. The two of them have much in common and their relationship continues to grow stronger. They encounter the Enchantress who drains the magic and life out of humans and they are faced with a dangerous opponent! 4 stars for this romantic fantasy for young adults! *I received a complimentary copy of this book for voluntary review consideration and all opinions and thoughts are my own.

Sera is growing and maturing. She is a seventhborn, reviled and not trusted. She longs to discover her family and become an inspector. To become an inspector, she must first be allowed to take the entrance exams to the College of Continuing Magic. Professor Barrington takes her under his wing and she finally has a chance to achieve her dreams. I voluntarily read and reviewed an advanced copy of this book. All thoughts and opinions are my own.

Having been expelled from the Academy at the end of the last book, Sera is now living at Barrington’s home, studying under his tutelage and continuing to work as his assistant. Sera is now almost ready for the examinations for entry to the Aetherium, and encounters continuing anti-seventh-born discrimination and antipathy as she tries to gather all the necessary references and documents required. Meanwhile, grieving father, Delacourt, and best-friend, Whittaker, are convinced that Sera killed Timothy. They want their revenge, but also want to get hold of Mary (as a witness), who has disappeared. She and Barrington are offered a new job by the dubious Armitage, to find his sister and the seventh-born orphans that she had been caring for – all of whom have vanished without a trace. Barrington loathes Armitage, and refuses. But, Sera cannot walk away from seventh-born children in trouble and decides to take on the job with, or without, Barrington’s aid, especially as Armitage promises her something she needs. What seems like a reasonably straightforward missing person enquiry – after all, seventh-borns go missing all the time – soon morphs into a very dangerous quest involving battling a myth and endangering the whole Academy, and Sera’s future. Sera finds out that her past has left more than just the physical scars. This is another fast-paced, thrilling fantasy with great lead characters. Tiny bits of information about Barrington’s previous life are drip-fed into the story-line, when Sera most needs to know about them, while her own past remains firmly locked up in her subconscious. Barrington – who is always so confident and capable (except when it comes to Sera) – is forced to face his own demons, and to confront his fundamental beliefs. Sera still has massive trust issues, originating from the appalling way she was treated before joining the Academy. However, she does see fit to believe Armitage – over Barrington’s objections. She is an extremely capable, intelligent and determined women – but at times I got so annoyed at Sera. Her mistrust incites reckless behaviour and quite unwarranted jealousy and rudeness, which threatens to alienate those trying the hardest to help her. How can she not see that Barrington is madly in love with her, and has eyes for no other woman – least of all Gummy? Will this be the book where she finally admits that she loves Barrington – and deserves to be loved by him. Can she ever stop her suspicions, and accept genuine help when it is offered? The theme of the extreme damage caused by discrimination and bigotry continues. I became very involved in the Sera-Barrington relationship – which is quite amazing for someone like me, who professes to abhor romances. I can recommend this book – and look forward to the next one. I received this copy from the publisher via NetGalley in exchange for an honest review

I voluntarily read and reviewed an advanced copy of this book. All thoughts and opinions are my own. I really don’t know how to put into words how much I love and appreciate this series. Sometimes, I guess, you are meant to just feel and leave it at that. Still, I can’t say nothing at all, so here we go. I don’t think that I have ever read a love story that intense. Every tiny caress felt like a victory somehow, definitely something very precious and bittersweet. Sera and Barrington both have quite heavy packages to carry. They suffer so much. Still, they find their own special light in the other and it is so very beautiful to observe. I have never needed tissues so much like with this book. Those two will hold a special place in my heart forever that’s for sure. The case they have to solve has been fascinating to read as well. I liked the atmosphere that has been created here: scary and somehow surreal. Well, there are quite a few ghosts involved. I certainly would freak out if they could suddenly touch me, let alone possess me. Poor Sera. All in all, this book, like its predecessor, has been an amazing read. I can wholeheartedly recommend both books to those who want to be caught in a maelstrom of intense feelings and who want to solve a mystical and magical case of a mysterious disappearance of an entire orphanage. I hope we will hear from Sera and Barrington soon in a sequel.
