A great read,
This review is from: Through a Glass (Paperback)Through a Glass begins with Irene, a gifted young artist putting the finishing touches to her latest painting, using a mirror to help her with the picture's perspective. The mirror is the catalyst that draws, Irene into a strange and frightening world.
The narrative flows smoothly as the story unfolds, and Irene finds herself on a quest, involving a huge stag, a strange box and a glass horse.
A variety of creatures play their part in the book...not all are pleasant, chiefly the ersatz and goblins.
However, I grew particularly fond of, Ezekiel the white rat. His attempt at CPR to save Irene is both touching and amusing!
The novel ends on a positive note, concluding in such a way that there could be sequel. I hope so.
Fantasy is not generally my chosen genre. But I confess I enjoyed this. And as I read I thought what a good movie it would make.
