Shattered Mirror was a fun read filled with plenty of action and mystery. The characters were well fleshed out and the emotions ran high. The villain was despicable, as he should be. Eve Duncan did not disappoint!
In Eve’s world there is no such thing as coincidence; indeed, the brutal killer who murdered Darcy’s sister and attacked Cara is intent on destroying both girls’ families in a deranged quest for vengeance. Johansen is beloved for her strong female protagonists, and Cara and Darcy are worthy additions to this coterie of heroines.
There’s actually a fun plot here, and Darcy is a charming addition, but it’s bogged down by an overabundance of navel-gazing, coincidence, and lots and lots of dialogue, much of it expository, in an obvious effort to catch readers up on the characters’ complicated backgrounds. Exhausting. Only die-hard fans need apply.
