This is the second book in the Mirror Visitor series and this instalment picks up soon after the events of the first book, A Winter’s Promise. It continues to follow Ophelia as the main protagonist, as she tries to navigate through life at the Pole.
I really enjoyed the first book so I’m happy to say that this instalment is just as good as the first, if not better since it feels a little more assured. First of all, I love this world. Basically the world is split into floating islands called arks and each ark is known for it’s own unique power. The protagonist, Ophelia, is from an ark called Anima and her powers are being able to travel through mirrors and being able to read the past of objects. In this instalment we get to see more of the world and find out more about it. The court intrigue is once again done well and I enjoyed watching the plot unfold. I also enjoyed the mystery element of this sequel. I thought the plot was compelling throughout, despite it being quite slow at times, and I cannot wait to see what is in store for the next instalment.
The characters are well written, if a little lacking in depth, but I do think that their development improved in this book a bit. Ophelia and Thorn, both became a bit more fleshed out and their relationship developed quite well, although I’m still not sure how I feel about the romance. If you enjoyed the first book, I think you’ll enjoy this sequel too.
Overall I thought this was a great sequel and I can’t wait for the translation of the third book to come out next year. Have you guys read this book? I’d love to know what you thought. I hope you are all having a wonderful day and I will see you next time.
