March 18, 2008


I had the great privilege of pre-reading this book. I am not allowed to spoil the surprise, so I will only say that after being enthralled by the world Bryan Davis created in Dragons in Our Midst and expanded upon in Oracles of Fire, I eagerly anticipated his new series, Echoes from the Edge. The characters, like those in his first two series, are realistic, relatable teens that readers of all ages can identify with. I see echoes of myself in Daryl, who constently alludes to and quotes from such favorite fantasies as Lord of the Rings and Narnia, as well as The Wizard of Oz.
My good intentions to read only a chapter of Beyond the Reflection's Edge daily evaporated. I read the whole book in less than four hours. The first chapter contained more emotion and action than some books ever reach. From there, the story builds in depth and action to an extraordinary conclusion. Unlike some books, Beyond the Reflection's Edge yields more excitement with each re-reading. I can't wait for the next installment

Bryan Davis has done it again! Beyond the Refection's Edge is an incredible tale of fantasy and adventure filled with action, suspense, humor, and the power of love. I loved the captivating way the author blends in music with the story and the mirrors and different dimensions were enchanting. The vivid characters kept me rooting for more and I felt as I was in the story beside Nathan, Kelly, and his parents. It kept me on the edge of my seat until I turned the last page. This is one book that you will not want to miss! I can't wait to see what other mysteries Bryan Davis has in store during the rest of the series. I recommend it to all teens.

In most books the first few chapters are just leading up to the story and it takes a while before you get into the book. That's NOT how it is with Beyond the Reflection's Edge!
The book kicks off in the very first chapter with more action than some books ever get into and gets even better from there. Once you start reading it you won't be able to stop! Whether you find reading fun or not you will definitely enjoy this book. I was up all night reading it!

It is extremely inspiring to find inspiring books for Young Adults such as "Beyond the Reflection's Edge". When I was a young adult, the main books for young adults were the Hardy Boys series and the Nancy Drew series. But today's young people have so much to contend with, and so much more turmoil in their lives, it is wonderful to find novels that are truly inspirational to today's youth and give them heroes worth rooting for.
