About the Author:

Catherine Fisher, called "the first lady of British fantasy" by the London Times,  was born in Newport, Wales. She graduated from the University of Wales with a degree in English and a fascination for myth and history. She was named the first Children’s Laureate of Wales and was invited to Buckingham Palace to meet Queen Elizabeth. She lives in Gwent, Wales.

From Booklist:

In Fisher’s whirlwind middle book in the Obsidian Mirror trilogy, rivals competing for control of the Mirror become uneasy collaborators in deciphering its operation. Until the Mirror’s secrets are uncovered, journeys to the past are fraught with danger, as Jake discovers when he searches for his lost father and becomes trapped—briefly, but in true time-travel style, portentously—in the London Blitz. As Jake loops forward and backward in time, Oberon and Maskelyne work on the Mirror. They are biding their time, while Sarah, determined to save the future, enters the Wood to reclaim the broken gold coin she gifted to Summer, the cruel and volatile Shee Queen, without realizing its potential: when joined with its missing half, the coin can destroy the Mirror. The breathless pacing, multiple plot threads, and intriguing glimpses of revelations just on the horizon keep the pages turning; it’s only once the thrill ride is over that one realizes how little progress has been made. That is generally a good kind of suspense, however, and readers will be desperate to see how it turns out. HIGH-DEMAND BACKSTORY: Since Incarceron (2010), Fisher has been a leader of intelligent upper-middle-grade fantasy. Major ARC promotion and a dedicated website will help keep the banner waving. Grades 6-9. --Krista Hutley
