A Shadow On The Glass
A Shadow On The Glass: The View from the Mirror | Ian Irvine
8 posts | 6 read | 8 to read
Once there were three worlds, each with their own people. Then, fleeing out of the void, on the edge of extinction, came the Charon. And the balance changed for ever. With A SHADOW ON THE GLASS, Book One of A View from the Mirror, a major new fantasy epic begins. Karan, a sensitive with a troubled past, is forced to steal an ancient relic in payment for a debt. But she is not told that the relic is, in fact, the Mirror of Aachan, a twisted, deceitful thing that remembers everything it has seen. Llian, meanwhile, a brilliant chronicler, is expelled from his college for uncovering a perilous mystery.Thrown together by fate, Karan and Llian are hunted across a world at war, for the Mirror contains a secret of incredible power. More information on this book and others can be found on the Orbit website at www.orbitbooks.co.uk

I love this series and any fantasy book by Ian Irvine. I even got my mum hooked on his books which says a lot as my mum never reads fantasy. This series is an epic adventure with strong female characters. There are battles, magic and suspense. With 4 books to get your teeth into what are you waiting for?

Day 23 of #Adventrecommends @emilyrose_x

It was the cover that made me puck this book up and then I was hooked! Irvine is an amazing fantasy author & I have devoured all his books now. The View from the Mirror is my favourite as that is where I discovered Irvine's fantastic story-telling. If you enjoy epic fantasy novels I highly recommend this series & all his others too

JaneyWaneyB @Andrew65 I love Ian Irvine and it all started with this series. He writes accessible epic fantasy stories with lots of strong female leads. I hope you enjoy if you get to one of his books in your very long TBR pile 😉 4y

JaneyWaneyB @Andrew65 wow my own Mountain ⛷ you'll fly through my recommendations unless you get hooked on Ian Irvine...so many series all made up of 4 books. WARNING: Reading Irvine can lead to Reading-Slump-itus 😳 4y
Andrew65 @JaneyWaneyB Warning duly noted 😂 Will have to do some research on his books. 4y

I have been meaning to reread this series for ever. It‘s time to finish the rest of Ian Irvine‘s books, but back to the beginning first, it‘s been a while.

This has to be the best series I have ever read. I love all the characters; strong female leads, complex anti-heroes, hidden villains and redeeming villains. A story that whisks you off on an adventure and introduces other worlds. I highly recommend Ian Irvine and his many series
