The Obsidian Mirror

Publisher: Hodder Children's Books

Review

Following the disappearance of his father, Jake Wilde is sent away to a Swiss boarding school by his rich and reclusive godfather, Oberon Venn. Convinced that Venn has murdered his father, Jake conspires to return to England and confront him, yet when he arrives at Wintercombe Abbey in the depths of snow and ice, Jake discovers far more than he ever could have expected.

Combining elements of folklore, fantasy, and science-fiction, The Obsidian Mirror will perplex and delight readers with the paradoxes of its time-travelling narrative, morally ambiguous characters, and at times unsettling atmosphere. With a fast pace and two compelling leads, the book will suit pre-teen and younger teenagers who enjoy a well-plotted, gripping fantasy adventure with a touch of wild magic.
