Rhianna vaguely remembers living in the house when she was young. However, she doesn’t remember anything that transpired there to cause her mother to never return and numerous renters to not stay very long there either. After she wakes up hearing calliope music and finds a man in her mirror asking for help, she finds herself drawn into a dark world trying to help him. She discovers the secret behind the house.
Alexander and his twin Donavan made a deal with a demon for immortality. Now Alexander is looking for a way to free himself and his twin brother from the demon’s clutches. He feels drawn to Rhianna and tries to help her to remember her past and the magic buried inside of her. He hopes that she will be able to free them from their eternal damnation. But will Alexander have to choose between Rhianna and his brother who keeps trying to prevent his leaving?
I give this book 4 tombstones. Ms. Hart’s description of the characters is well written and creates a vivid picture in the reader’s mind. She does an admirable job of drawing the reader into the story and writing a gripping tale. While there is some adult content in this book, it is well written and adds to the development of the characters relationship.
I have to admit, after reading the first few pages, I was a little hesitant to continue the book. I normally stay away from novels that have a horror type element to them because I have an active imagination at night, but I felt myself drawn into the tale that Ms. Hart weaves and found myself turning each page just to find out what happened next. The dark circus that she creates in her novel is a creepy place that I know I would never want to visit. If you’re looking for something a little bit different from the vampire and werewolf novels out there, pick up Through the Mirror by Crymsyn Hart. You will not be disappointed.
