“This was a great book full of intrigue and romance…”
~ Under the Covers

When Megan Chaumont’s sister dies, it’s up to Megan to take her place in a marriage bargain her father has set up. Three brothers will arrive and Megan has to chose which one she will marry. Megan was never meant to marry and she doesn’t know how she is supposed to chose. It’s serendipitous when a mirror appears which will show her the consequences of choosing each of the brothers. She will be shown the life she will have with each brother and then she will make her choice. Once she has made her choice her memory of the mirror and what she has viewed will disappear. So, which brother will she chose?

I’ve started 2018 off with a bang! I loved this book! I don’t read much fantasy YA, but I like Barb Hendee so I decided to give Through a Dark Glass a try. I am so glad I did, it was such an interesting concept. The mirror shows the beholder the life they will live when they make a certain choice. 17 year old Megan sees the life she will share with each brother if she chooses to marry him and then once she has viewed them, she then has to decide the kind of life she wants to live. Each brother offers her something that she wants for herself; power, independence, love. She must decide what she wants most.

I admit, that I had guessed which brother she would pick before her futures were shown to her and I became especially certain as the book came on. However, that didn’t mean that the book didn’t hold surprises, each of the brothers showed some secret part of themselves that you wouldn’t have known about if it weren’t for the mirror. And, as each future held death, exile or both for someone it made the choice harder to make because of the consequences for characters you had come to understand and unexpectedly like.

This book was hard to put down, despite thinking I knew who Megan would choose that didn’t make reading this any less enjoyable and speculating any less fun. This was a great book full of intrigue and romance and for any fans of fantasy and/or YA I highly recommend you pick it up and give it a try. I can’t wait to read the next book where the mirror will once again show someone three different paths they can follow in a pivotal moment in their life. I can’t wait to find out the dilemma and what they’ll chose.
