“Mirrors share a strange quality that is rarely remarked on; they lie. The truth that a mirror shows is never the truth as experienced by the observer. Wink your left eye to your reflection, and it winks its right eye back. In mirrors, we see what we expect to see, a reflection of ourselves and the world around us. But such is the truth; the world the mirror shows is not our own, and this lie that mirrors tell is no less real than that which it reflects.. not from the inside. Here, in that oft-forgotten space on the far side of your reflection, the individual moments of Earth are infinitely captured and recreated. Thus is another world born, one that recreates and yet distorts its benefactor. Thus exists the Mirrorworld.”
When a man who is no-one, but is named Marcus, finds himself snatched from the jaws of death that were quietly closing around the tumultuous drinking session that was to mark the end of his life, he is surprised to find himself in a whole new world, close to but definitely different to the one he was never much of a fan of. But the past is hard to forget, and the future will be tricky, because if he's to carry on then he'll have to contend with the incarnate force of Death, who isn't too happy to have been skipped out on, the vagrancies of life in a whole new world, and most of all with the Viaggiatori, the managers of reality and the space between worlds, who are having a bit of a wizard problem..
'Mirrorworld' is a story of life and death, of monsters and magic, of destiny, dreams and an unhinged fanatic.

About the Author
Daniel Jordan lives in Nottingham, UK, where he can be found pulling pints by night and writing books by slightly later at night. His writing career began at a foolishly young age with a series of comics about a terrifyingly anthropomorphic worm, and has come along at least a little bit since then. Daniel uses the knowledge gained from his English Language and Literature degree to bore his friends, snark on the internet, gush about how interesting language is, and, occasionally, to write books. In his free time he enjoys travelling, reading, video games, playing the guitar, and boring his friends by talking about how interesting language is. Daniel's all-time favourite books are Catch-22 and Last Chance to See, both of which he really quite seriously recommends.
