The Book

Jessie McLeod isn’t your typical teenager. She is fascinated by everything antique, because when she touches them, she can see scenes of these objects, and the people who owned them. She gets little “glimpses” into the past.
But when a mirror arrives at her Dad’s store, a person, who had been part of the mirror’s history, looks back at her, seeming to see her just as clearly as she does; a gorgeous young man, only a little older than herself. But that’s not all that is weird. She starts dreaming about him, too, and further glimpses into the mirror show changing images. If she wasn’t confused enough, the young man from the mirror, who clearly had not been from this century, appears in her father’s store to be a new employer.
Time is not as linear as she thought it was.

The Book

The book sticks to the narration style of the previous one, however less regular. This time, the narrators do not switch according to chapters, but according to events.

Alisa and Bryce are a couple. This book aims to show their relationship, her understanding and being able to cope with his character, while struggling with his forwardness, jealousy and possessiveness. At the same time, Alisa fights against her own insecurities of being not worthy to be with a Spellbringer and tries to figure out the meaning of the Claiming Words that Bryce spoke to her.

The Book

There are two narrators in this story, Alisa Cole and Rachel Stephens.

Alisa is the school’s outsider. She cannot disappear, as her cousin Becky is the main oppressor – especially after new boy Jace Alexander arrives, whom every girl immediately crushes on, and Alisa can’t escape it either. Alisa knows there is something different about Jace even before she sees that he is attacked by a Hunter on his way home from school, and she saves his life. Jace comes from a magically gifted family, a people called Spellbringers. As she saved his life, she is welcomed into the family, but there is one exception to the welcome, Jace’s brother Bryce. Bryce is cold, distanced, and seems to want nothing more than to see Alisa leave the family alone, ignorant of their powers.
