Review for Mirror by Candace L. Bowser


Adrianna Bristol stood before her grandmother’s antique mirror and stared at the black velvet cloth covering it. She just couldn’t believe her nana was gone. The mirror had hung in that exact same spot for the last twenty years, never once had it been moved from the alcove. Adrianna remembered the stern words of her grandmother when she was a child. Annabel Bristol had told her, “promise me Adrianna that you will never uncover the mirror. No matter what it may whisper to you, you must never remove the cover.”

Adrianna laid her hand against the cool velvet which covered the glass. As she walked away the mirror whispered to her, “you belong to me now. You belong to me.” A four hundred year old curse has plagued the Bristol family since the 1600’s. A curse born out of a love so rich and a betrayal so deep, that time itself has no power to stop it. Only Adrianna has the courage to find the truth behind the curse and set her family free. But will the Mirror release its darkest secrets?

I really liked this story, it reminded me of Snow White’s mirror, but trapped in a story that is far from a fairy tale.
It follows Adrianna, the next mistress of the Bristolli home. When her grandmother died, she had no idea about the family curse, only that she can’t take the cover off the mirror in the hall way.
When the mirror started to speak to her, Adrianna unraveled deep and dark secrets that leaves her life threatening obstacles around every corner. Desperate to end this four-hundred year old curse it held over the Bristol (or Bristolli, as they know them in Italy) women, Adrianna will push through, but it means she has to stand up to people that want to harm her, and face entities and things she didn’t believe in.

At times I was scared, and I definitely shed a tear towards the end. Mirror is a story of a cursed love and one woman with the strenght to break it.

Now what I didn’t like about it, the first chapter didn’t grab my attention, and the chapters are extremely long, which myself am not a big fan off. She also needed a good pair of eyes to see that there was a bit of miss spelled words and forgotten words. Something a author don’t easily picked up because they are too close to their project.
Even though with all the above, Mirror is a story that anyone will enjoy, and I will recommend it to all my friends.
