Shattered Mirror is the third young adult book by teen writer, Amelia Atwater Rhodes. She was voted one of Teen People's Teens Most Likely to Change the World.

Author: Amelia Atwater-Rhodes

Amelia Atwater-Rhodes, one of the best vamp writers out there, is back again with her third book, Shattered Mirror. With an intricate story of witches, vampires and their rules and rituals, Shattered Mirror starts slower than her previous books but suddenly picks up the pace. It leaves you wanting more - just like Demon in My View and In The Forests of the Night.


Give Me Some Emotion

At first, I was a little disappointed by Shattered Mirror as I didn't find the character of Sarah Vida (a witch from royal witch lines) all that easy to absorb or bond with. And her family is not just unlikeable but annoying as well. Hello - are you witches or robots?! Actually, robots probably have more emotion than Sarah's sister or mother do.


Pure Evil

Eventually, though, I found myself pulled into Sarah's struggle with the black-and-white moral code her family lives by and the gray she discovers after falling in like (and kinda-love) with Christopher Raven, a vampire. The witch with the mostest discovers that, maybe, there is no such thing as "pure evil." Of course, if you're an Amelia Atwater-Rhodes fan, you know her plots aren't that simple... Shattered Mirror throws a curve into the plotline with the introduction of Christopher Raven's twin brother, Nikolas. And Nikolas just happens to be as close to "pure evil" as you can get!


This book may start slower than Amelia Atwater Rhodes' previous page-turners, but the story picks up the pace as it goes along. It's definitely worth pushing through the first 30 or 40 pages because, before you know it, you're in that detailed, slippery world of vampire legend, witch lore and enjoyable twists of fate that Amelia Atwater-Rhodes is known for weaving.


Shattered Mirror Rating: 3

    Chapter 2- "Dinner's ready! Oh who's this?" a woman said, staring at me. "Mum, it's the Doctor!" Valetina replied. "The Doctor? Valentina, stop beling everything you watch!" her mother told her. "He's real.  Just look at him!" Valentina  told them both. "Calm down, Valetina." I told her. she nodded and continued to smile. "I am sorry. She has ADHD."  the man told me. "Oh." "It's also because I've veen often depressed." Valentina added, afterwards. "Why?" I asked. "I'll tell you later." Valentina told me with a wink. "Alright. Lets have a fanastic meal!"  the woman annouched . Valentina and her father left to the kitenchen, and I followed. I found an empty seat next to Valentina.  They had a cooked pig. "Is this fine?" the woman asked me. " It's fanastic!" I yelled. I cut a peice off and put it on my plate. "May I cut Valetina a peice?"  I asked. "Sure."  her father told me. I cut a peice for her and put it on her plate. She smiled at me and ate. I eyed the others then decided to take a bit. It was good,with a flavor I never tasted.

    (Most characters belong to BBC, the creators of Doctor Who. The referances belong to their owners) You don't know what your fighting for.  What you came here for, feeling all alone. You have loved. You have lost. How does this keep happening? All alone, on your own. But you shouldn't give up, don't ever do that. Chapter 1-  Clarla. Oh how I miss her.  Why does the memories live on, after the battle with the daleks? I  hid my tears once I entered my TARDIS, feeling the erge to go on.  I remembered something. Something old. I glanced out of my TARDIS and gazed at the stars. Oh, Gallifrey, glowing lighly. I sighed once some clouds invaded the sky. "Why are you out in the cold?" a man asked me.  "I was just enjoying the stars, when the clouds shaded my view." I told him. "Oh you must be cold, come on inside." the man told me. I followed him into his house. "Hello!" a young girl came to me smiling. "Hi,"  I muttered pulling out my sonic screwdriver. "You must be the doctor! Oh, how I heard stories about you!"  she  told me, loudly. "Valentina, you do not speak to  a guest like he's the King of England!" the man snapped. "It's alright."I told him. "My wife is cooking dinner. Mine if you stay?" he asked me. "I would stay for dinner." I told him. This made Valetina smile. *Stay tuned after the break please do not coment*
