The Mirror of Fire and dreaming is the follow-up to Chitra Banerjee Divakaruni's Brotherhood of the Conch. We've got the review right here!

Author: Chitra Banerjee Divakaruni

The Mirror of Fire and Dreaming is the second book in the Brotherhood of the Conch series by Chitra Banerjee Divakaruni. Find out what Anand is up to this time! We've got the review.

Destiny Calls

In a hidden valley in the Indian Himalayas, Anand has a vision that leads him to believe his spiritual (and magical) mentor, Master Healer Abhaydatta, is in serious danger. This vision leads Anand on an adventure through India (and through time!) where he encounters sorcerers, royalty and plenty of magic in his quest to help his friend.

Lost in Time

Anand uses his magical conch to create a portal that will take him to his mentor and he and his sassy sidekick Nisha hop in. But Anand and Nisha are separated along the way and the conch becomes lost in an ancient kingdom. Now Anand must save his friends and the conch before returning to his own time. And if he finds he has a little time on his hands, he may try preventing the downfall of an ancient royal family.


The Bottom Line

The Mirror of Fire and Dreaming is an enchanting tale of adventure and magic. The oddball characters, poetic language and beautiful setting all combine to make a book that any young fantasy lover is bound to enjoy. However, you'll definitely want to read Anand's first adventure, The Conch Bearer, before checking out this book.



The Mirror of Fire and Dreaming Rating:4


Book One - The Conch Bearer

Anands first story, The Conch Bearer, begins when he is entrusted with a magical conch shell and must return it to its rightful owner. His friend Nisha joins him for the journey that will take them hundreds of miles from their rural Indian village. Anand will be tested throughout his adventure - and will be forced to make a life changing decision.

    I personally think that God is not real because think about it, in the bible it talks about miricales. When was the last miricales eh? And if he was real I would hate him for telling people to burn gays!

    I'm kind of the same. Some of my friends are reading books like The Mortal Instruments, Divergent, Looking for Alaska...and those books just bore me with all that teen romance. Only a few books I read now are considered "teen reads" with absolute no explicit romance. The rest are probably getting a bit old for my age. Remember there are always new books coming out with new authors and someone is bound to write a story that suits you.
