I wasn’t quite sure what to expect when I started reading this book. Would it be a portal fantasy? An urban fantasy? A time travel fantasy? Turns out that Mirror Walker is a little bit of everything. It is a story about two kids who find a mirror and it becomes a time travel portal that takes the kids back in time where they can change the past.
This surprised me a bit I think because the cover suggested some sort of portal fantasy into a high fantasy realm, at least that is what I thought. But the world does expand and more and more fantastical elements are added throughout the book. The two main characters Connor and Felicity were relatable and felt like real fleshed out characters.
The book was enjoyable and had a good build. I was a little lost at the climax however. I feel like all of a sudden the book took a big turn that hadn’t been set up earlier and it would have been helpful to have more of the lore and mythology foreshadowed earlier in the book in order to fully understand the significance of the climax.
There were definitely unexpected twists in this book and the ending leaves you on a cliffhanger!
