Shattered Mirror (Den of Shadows, #3) by Amelia Atwater-Rhodes
No return; no turning back. The past is gone, the future, black. Serpents gather in their nest. And she stands above the rest. Shadows hunt; she hunts the shadow.
The moon is risen; she stands below. She views her world through the eyes of others. Black and white; there are no colors, As she looks down upon a shattered youth.
A shattered mirror shows a shattered truth. I forgot how much I loved this book. I love Christopher or Kristopher, either way you want to spell it, though Kristopher is from his people killing days. Sarah Vida, youngest daughter of Dominique Vida the head of the witchy vampire hunters, is awesome. I love mirtor character. Amelia Atwater Rhodes, author of Shattered Mirrordoes an amazing job of making Sarah both a strong, prideful, determined, and brave, but at the same time she has this underlining vulnerability that I love.
We can all relate to that. Pride is so a human folly. Toss aside the family issues and throw her into school cue meeting Christopher, god I adore him. He draws her pictures and writes her poetry. I will however give you a rundown of my emotions throughout this page book.
Shattered Mirror (Den of Shadows, book 3) by Amelia Atwater-Rhodes
Sometimes it even gives you insights into characters from other stories. My biggest problem with this zmelia was that I thought I was getting a book about a teenaged witch in which witches hunted vampires but then this young witch learned that friendship!
And for the first third of the book, that’s what I got, and so I was lured in. You know, I was going to give this book two stars for being moderately technically proficient, but now I don’t wanna. Feb 24, Sarai rated it it was ok Shelves: Okay, so I did not finish this book.
I picked shartered up because there were a ton of books by this author on the shelf, so I figured, okay, she must be pretty good. But I was turned off right away by the heroine as she went off to kill people and thought about how tough she was, and then right after she met Christpher he started leaving things in her locker which I had someone do to me in college, and found it very creepy and an invasion of my personal stuff.
There was no time for a relationship or Okay, so I did not finish this book. There was no time for a ammelia or feelings to develop but all the sudden Sarah really liked Christopher and was conflicted about her role as a vampire hunter. It also bothered me that her sister had graduated from school but all the sudden showed up one day to give Sarah a message.
I don’t know, maybe it’s different in other places but aren’t most high schools closed down to outsiders just wandering in?
And there was all kinds of stuff about how powerful and strong her mother was, but she was nowhere around. AND, I had a problem with Sarah being a witch.
A witch’s whole credo is “harm none. View all 3 comments. Somewhat Spoiler Warning I read Demon in my View years ago when I was in high school; I’m not entirely sure if my tastes have matured since then most likelyor if it was just a better book, but I remember enjoying that one far more than this one. In the end, I can only say there was one redeeming quality about this book, and that is that Sarah does not immediately decide she’s in love with Christopher at the end of the book, even though he seems to have taken quite a liking to her in the span Somewhat Spoiler Warning I read Demon in my View years ago when I was in high school; I’m not entirely sure if my tastes have matured since then most likelyor if it was just a better book, but I remember enjoying that one far more than this one.
In the end, I can only say there was one redeeming quality about this book, and that is that Sarah does not immediately decide she’s in love with Christopher at the end of the book, even though he seems to have taken quite a liking to her in the span of time they’ve known each other, which isn’t even a full two weeks if my math is correct.
Honestly, I find the writing to be awful. Biased opinion aside, I know I myself have written better things than this, and it is she that gets the published series and the accolades.
Heck, Stephanie Meyer’s writing is far more polished than in this book. Perhaps the author just had a horrible editor, or maybe it’s because she only wrote this book in her late teens, but I honestly don’t find it worthy of high ratings it received.
A few other issues I have with the book: I’m sorry, but I found nothing interesting or cool about it. In fact, it made it confusing as the spellings got switched back and forth for their names several times throughout the book, and sometimes there was no context for it Nikolas suddenly became Nicholas and then changed back to Nikolas in the span of a sentence and a half.
I don’t know why some authors struggle with this. In my opinion, real love does not happen in ten days, whether your a vampire, a witch, a human, or something else. The revelation at the end that Christopher loved Sarah made me want to throw the book down in frustration and call shenanigans. Overall, the writing was awful, the plot was flat and not very gripping, the editor atwater-rhoodes fell asleep several times on the job, and I just didn’t care about the characters.
I honestly would not make the effort to recommend this book to anyone; the only reason I give it two stars is because I sort of just wanted to know how it would end. Nov 15, Baile Hanak rated it it was ok. Why atwater-rhodee two stars, you ask? This book had atwayer-rhodes.
It could have been a high-seller. Unfortunately, it simply fails to fulfill its potential. I liked the storyline: Christopher is a fascinating character, and his sensitivity is refreshing compared to the usual stereotypical vampire archetypes. As the protagonist, there should be a lot more feeling associated with her, but she was a truly dull, flat character.
Yes, she falls in love with Chris, but the reader can’t feel any of t Why just two stars, you ask? Yes, she falls in love with Chris, but the reader can’t feel any of the romance, passion, or even internal connflict she claims to go through.
The story itself was rushed: Christopher is introduced in one chapter and in the next chapter they are madly in love. I think that if the author had put more time and effort into the story, it would have been wonderful. She incorparates good dialogue–perhaps a superfluous amount sometimes– and describes the action scenes adequately Nov 23, Zach rated it liked it Recommends it for: Shattered Mirror was an excellent and thrilling book. It was about a girl named Sarah Vida who was from a long line of witches.
These witches also hunted and killed vampires. Things start to change when Sarah meets a charming new guy at school named Christopher who happens to be a vampire.
She struggles with this problem very much through out the book, because it is against her families “laws” to befriend a vampire. She also struggles with trying to hunt a very ancient and dangerous vampire name Shattered Mirror was an excellent and thrilling book. She also struggles with trying to hunt a very ancient and dangerous vampire named Nikolas.
Read this book to find out about all the crazy twist and turns.
Jun 21, Kayla rated it liked it. Aug 12, Jennifer rated it really liked it. Someone who has no idea about your power and is simply a friend? She can only have certain types of friends and forget about being friends with vampires.
It’s against the rules, which are some of the strictest ones I have heard of before. Sarah’s life is atwater-rhoxes you ever once wanted someone you could talk to about something besides killing?
