Content descriptions

Summary, etc.: "When Ophelia is promoted to Vice-storyteller by Farouk, the ancestral Spirit of Pole, she finds herself unexpectedly thrust into the public spotlight. her gift―the ability to read the secret history of objects―is now known by all, and there can be no greater threat to the nefarious denizens of her icy adopted home than this. Beneath the golden rafters of Pole's capitol, she discovers that the only person she may be able to trust is Thorn, her enigmatic and emotionally distant fiancé. As one influential courtier after another disappears, Ophelia again finds herself unintentionally implicated in an investigation that will lead her to see beyond Pole's many illusions to the heart of a formidable truth."-- Amazon.com.
Language Note: In English; translated from the French.

  • Booklist Reviews : Booklist Reviews 2019 September #1
    Prominent citizens of Citaceleste are disappearing, and, based on the threatening letters she's receiving, Ophelia may be next. Not that she has time to worry about that since she's caught the rather daunting notice of the Pole Family Spirit, who has named her Miss Vice-Storyteller and demands a new tale every night. Then there's her recalcitrant and distant fiancé, who seems only interested in her for her gift (reading objects). As the plot intensifies, so does Ophelia's resolve to solve these mysteries—including that of the man she's soon to marry. Volume 2 in the Mirror Visitor Quartet, following A Winter's Promise (2018), is rich with insights into Ophelia's growth, teasers about fiancé Thorn's true feelings and intentions, and new developments such as the intermittent "fragment" chapters that drop hints about the nature and creation of the family spirits. The translated tale retains the charm of its original French and has the slightest flavor of a steampunk novel, appropriate given the Victorian feel, and the mix of tech and magic. Teen and adult readers alike will gobble it up and yearn for the next one. Grades 9-12. Copyright 2019 Booklist Reviews.
