9780007491179: Circles of Stone (The Mirror Chronicles, Book 2)

The second volume in an epic fantasy trilogy that will thrill everyone who loves rich stories of wonder and magic.

Desperate to return to his own world to look for the mother he has only just learned is alive, Sylas is nevertheless stuck in the strange realm of the Other. There, his magical powers are constantly growing – and he has just become one of the first people to meet his own Glimmer, the other half of his own soul living in this mirror world.

His Glimmer, Naeo, also has an unusual inborn talent for the nature-magic of the Fourth Way. But there’s one marked difference: Naeo is a girl…

Naeo, like Sylas, is looking for someone: her father, captured by the dark lord Thoth. But Thoth is looking for her too, and for Sylas – together, they represent the only thing that could stop him ruling both worlds.

To escape him, the two children are separated and sent on reverse missions: Naeo into our world to find Sylas’s mother, and Sylas deep into the Other to find Naeo’s father. But Scarpia, servant of Thoth, follows Naeo to the crossing point at Stonehenge, creatures of darkness on her heels…

… And in the Other, in the dank dungeons of the Dirgheon, Thoth is raising an army of unspeakable monstrosity. To survive, Sylas and Naeo must remain apart – but to defeat Thoth, they will one day have to come together again…

Product Description:

The second volume in an epic fantasy trilogy that will thrill everyone who loves rich stories of wonder and magic.

Together, they have unimaginable power. But unless they part, that power may destroy them.

As the dark lord Thoth raises a monstrous army, Sylas and Naeo discover that their new-found power could also be their undoing. At the same time, Sylas longs to find his mother, and Naeo her father. So begins a mirrored quest that will bring Naeo into our world of science and take Sylas deep into the magic of the Other. They both hope to find the one the other loves, but also the ultimate truth: of our broken worlds and divided souls, of prophecy and of Sylas and Naeo’s wondrous power.

But it’s a race against time. Even as they being their journey, Thoth’s creatures mass at the gateways between our worlds – at the ancient circles of stone…

War is coming and unless Sylas and Naeo can stop it, it may destroy us all.

Review:

"This is classic fantasy stuff, really well done, and fans of Tolkien or Garth Nix will find much to love...” LoveReading4Kids

“Part two of an epic quest to save two worlds: thrilling, beautifully written...a huge, exciting book, full of engrossing ideas about freedom, justice and relationships, and many a young reader will love the chance to really delve deeply into such a well-constructed, highly original fantasy.” The Bookbag

“Full of conviction, this powerful story moves between two worlds; a world of science and a world of magic... This is a breathtaking classic fantasy series.” Parents In Touch

Praise for The Mirror Chronicles – The Bell Between Worlds:

“I became totally immersed in an amazing world of painted words ... breathtaking and an absolute joy to read... A book that you will reflect on for the rest of your life. Just like when you first read the Hobbit or Sabriel or took your first stroll along the story path of Terry Pratchett... Fantastically exciting... Quite simply... Possibly the best book that I have read – or will read – this year." Mr Ripley's Enchanted Books

"Outstanding ... Epic stuff. This is certainly the best 'classic' fantasy I have come across so far from the last 14 years ... Could well prove to be one of the Greats of any period.
Magic Fiction Since Potter

“Johnstone effortlessly conjures up elaborate worlds rich in both magic and fantasy. The Mirror Chronicles has an enchanting quality that is capable of standing shoulder to shoulder with the likes of Chronicles of Narnia and His Dark Materials ... The narrative flows with ease and the story maintains excitement right to the end. This highly-charged adventure is a delightful page-turner for both children and adults alike." Bookseller (We Love This Book)
