Unable to contain the deadly nature of her family secret and powers, nine-teen year old Romarin Demetri hails from California, U.S.A, to unearth her heritage as a descendant of serial-killer, Countess Bathory, the woman that lent Dracula his legend, and cursed Romarin with an appetite for blood.

Unenthusiastic about relocating to her birth city of London, a charming paranormal investigator with claim to the throne could change her mind, as he leads her to the only living and distant relative she has: a raven-haired recluse named Talia, who has taken refuge in an old castle in the heart of the city, and doesn't seem to have a heart of her own.

After a rough introduction to the lethal, inappropriate, and enchantingly sarcastic people she calls her housemates, perhaps the other misfits will be her first true friends; However, as much as these people are like her, they still have hidden vendettas, a taste for revenge, and will struggle between what is just, and what will settle their psychological upheaval. There is only one way for Romarin to become part of the Supernatural London Underground: Can she be the one who challenges them to put down their ghosts and demons and make their world together?

About the Author

Romarin Demetri is a story crafter who loves black coffee, traveling abroad, and when her characters come home in some sort of trouble she swears she didn’t invent. Pulling from her B.A. in English and Psychology, her debut series, The Supernatural London Underground, is a blend of fantasy ground in reality, and a world a reader can truly escape to. As an eccentric and reader, she still enjoys creating the alternate reality in her urban fantasy series (more than anything!), and her interactive world waits for you at RomarinDemetri.com.

The first book from this author covers a lot of bases; supernatural, romance, comedy, suspense, and plenty of interesting characters. It starts off with a pretty girl, a secret past, confusion in a new place, and some hope in the finding out she's not entirely alone. But... it's not what you'd expect. And that's a good thing. It's not cliche, and it's not a typical YA fantasy novel. In fact I'd say it's aimed at a more adult audience, but still plenty of fun for teens too. Everyone has a secret, and first impressions aren't always what they seem. Our heroine stands well on her own. The romance is a subplot, not something constantly on her mind, which is a breath of fresh air. From the title I would say it's the start of a series, so obviously questions will be left unanswered, and by the end of it you'll want to know them! Yes, it's a fantasy so there's plenty of strange going's on, but at it's heart it a group of misfits just trying to get by finding comfort in each other, even if they do drive each other crazy at times. But that's what family's for, right? An overall great beginning for a new author. Hints of coming side-plots woven throughout to keep you guessing, characters you'll love and characters you'll hate, or love to hate. I could point out some minor flaws, but what authors first book doesn't have those? The story is good enough to easily overlook them and keep you wanting more. I can't wait to see what's next!

A Mirror Among Shattered Glass is told from multiple point of views. Romarin's point of view is the only one told in first person. Each character has some kind of something going on in their lives. We get parts of some of their histories. I'm still not sure what the overall conflict/issue is that was supposed to form the plot. What are they all working towards besides their own little separate issues? What was I supposed to be following? The potential is here for a great story, but I feel like I missed something. Or maybe a few somethings. The ARC of A Mirror Among Shattered Glass by Romarin Demetri was kindly provided to me by the author for review. The opinions are my own.
