I found myself doing a lot of sighing and headshaking while reading "The Mirror's Edge". It was one of those situations where you want to reach into the book, grab the character, and say "Hey! Can't you see what's going on!?" But alas, we can't do that.

Jase had many, many demons he was fighting. No doubt about that. I guess I was just kind of hoping he'd eventually come to terms with the things in his life he couldn't directly control. He seemed to be living in a world that was governed on

I picked up this book up on pure whim. I went to a new library to see if they had some of the books I was gonna read (They didn't) so I browsed for a few minutes. I picked this up because I liked the name. I also figured lets try something new.

I would of given this 2.5, but that isn't an option. Anyways, I didn't like the fragmented style the author went with. Also, while suspenseful, a lot of the twists were easy to guess; for example the ending is a nice little twist but I saw it coming a few

I have mixed feelings about this book when it comes to certain plot points. Jase's train of thought can be a bit off putting. But for the most part it's an excellent read. Evil is defined and complexity of the characters is even more so. Robyn turning into a fanatic of Morick doesn't only speak to the dark themes but shows the many facets of her personality, whilst showing that she still cared for Jase. I like it when the main character takes initiative. And that;s what Jase does. The story was ...more

Finished the last 20 pages or so at Hale and Hearty over a bowl of Tortellini Carbonara, and the rating really DID come down to the end, but definitely gets 4 stars for me. It wasn't life-changing, but a really fun read (as mentioned before, I honestly did have to put it down at one point and check to make sure that the doors were locked. Last night I didn't start reading until Mr. Mayberryaftermidnight got home because I didn't think the cats would, or could, do much to protect me...especially ...more

A journalist with a hunger for the deeper story, the kidnapping of twin boys, fantastical claims of magic and inhumanity, and an ever increasing sense of chaos and conspiracy drive the reader straight to the mirror's edge in this fast, cold thriller. The boys' kidnapper leaves their nanny disfigured - the word "mirror" carved in mirror image between her thighs; their father's security system captures the act on tape. Writer Jase and his partner (romantic and business) Robyn become embroiled in a ...more

this was quite possibly one of the best books I've ever read. it was so interesting. really. it was intelligent, and the way it was written was dramatic but believable. you really love the main character from the start. or at least I did. what I loved most about this book though, was how the writer managed to combine fiction with real life. supernatural elements and real human emotions. I feel like as I'm typing this I'm still not accurately describing the book well. I have read similair things ...more

picked this up at the dollar store, a real dollar store where everything is only a dollar...didn't expect much. To my surprise this was an exciting suspenseful and dark story about a journalist trying to solve a cold case about 2 young boys that were kidnapped from their home. No one would EVER guess what he finds...great book you will not want to put down. easy read

Excellent book! I read it in 3 days and I'm still thinking about it. It scares the hell out of you and the situation is so real (there are some crazy people out there) that it keeps you up at night. The characters are extremely well drawn and the writing is exceptional: don't miss it!

I would say the third time is a charm! This book is the best that Steve has written. As I was reading this book, I was always wondering what was on the next page. I could not put this book down, let alone sleep at night.

great read - very creepy - quick and easy read - Sidor has a bit of an usual writing style - writes in short sentences and fragments but still crafts the story very well
Aug 26, 2013 Anne rated it it was ok
Paranormal and weird and just found the writing hard to follow at times. It was really more of a 1.5, but I round up....

It was an okay book, nothing spectacular. It's sometimes a little confusing and didn't not really like ending.

I liked it...but it is very different. Written in first person and goes back in time. Good writing.

I'm the author of the critically-acclaimed dark thrillers Skin River, Bone Factory, and The Mirror’s Edge. My latest novel of terror, Pitch Dark, is about a young woman on the run from a dangerous apocalyptic cult.
