Tyler wrote Marguerite the most beautiful love letter. This is a very short extract thereof.
Dearest Marguerite:
You've taught me a great deal about stillness. About the many things that can drift into your mind and heart when you shut down the barricades created by noise. Unexpected gifts of insight, revelation and wisdom. (…)
But you taught me that love is found in stillness.

4 1/2–I adore Tyler–Stars

An emotionally beautiful conclusion to a well written love story. This couple's follow-up book still took me out of my comfort zone but not as much as their first book Ice Queen did. The ending brought reverent tears to eyes and the hero, Tyler, has become one of my all-time favorite heroes. He's a true gentleman and I adore him.

***5 Breathtaking Stars***

There is nothing I could write in a review that could possibly come close to explaining the beauty that is the story of Tyler and Marguerite.


To say that I will forever carry this story in my heart doesn't feel accurate enough to encompass what I feel for this story........I will carry it in my soul.

So since my words couldn't do a review justice, I'll continue to give Ms. Hill the stage and share a few of my favorite quotes:

Out of suffering have emerged the strongest souls; the most massive characters are seared with scars. --- Kahlil Gibran

Mirror of my Soul picked up right where Ice Queen left off. Tyler had just endured a brutal beating from the hands of Marguerite and the both of them had to deal with the aftermath. Will Marguerite be able to learn to let herself embrace Tyler's love for her? Will Tyler continue to endure in his devotion to the woman who is determined to shut him out?

This is a sequel to Ice Queen

So, we're back with Marguerite and Tyler. A lot has happened, she finally realized after a serious breakdown, she doesn't want Ty as a sub, but as a Master and things are falling apart for her. Her reality is re-defining and she's not sure what she wants... And he knows what he wants-unconditionally, irrevocably HER.

The Ice Queen

Marguerite has been through some of the worst things life has to offer. She has suffered abuse, watching a loved one die, and

First, I will start by saying that anything I say in this review would never do this book, Mirror of My Soul (Book 4) or Ice Queen (Book 3) justice. Okay, glad I got that out of the way.

Now where to start with my thoughts? This book is part of a series, but book three, Ice Queen, and book four, Mirror of My Soul, are the same characters. I know what you're thinking, but in all honesty, this couple needed two separate books to really capture the complexity of their demons and
'Mirror To My Soul' starts mere sentences after 'Ice Queen' ends. Marguerite has just completed a session as Mistress over Tyler which has ended with Tyler bruised and bloody. Although he acted as Marguerite's submissive and bares the wounds of his decision, not once during the entire time was he not in control. Tyler's eyes continuously proved with every locked stare that he was and always would be Marguerite's Master.

The psychological breakdown that Marguerite experiences and of which was

This was just too purple in it's prose for my liking. Everything Tyler said was all poetic & it made me cringe. It was just too, too much.

Normally, I find, Hill can make even the most outlandish situations have a real life authenticity b'c of her dialog. It will resonate with me in some way so I can find it believable (& often beautiful) in some way. Not this.

I felt like I was watching that sensitive man scene in the movie Bedazzled w/Brendan Fraiser, "I caught sight of that sunset and

What a finish to an intense story of two tortured people!

Tyler used to be in the Special Forces or maybe the CIA. It's not stated explicitly but it is mentioned that he used to do undercover work for the government. He retired from that but continued the adult film-making business that was his cover. Ms Hill is careful to make sure I'm not conjuring up images of sleazy perverts preying on young kids when I think of Tyler producing tasteful porn though some people will call it smut. That's what

Here we are once again. First, let's get this out of the way; if you're planning on reading this book and haven't read any of the previous books in the series, you need to at least read #3. This book is a direct sequel to Ice Queen and will not make much sense to you at all if you try to jump into it without having the first part of the story.

While this book wasn't terrible, I can't help but give it a lower rating than Ice Queen for the simple fact that it felt a little bit ridiculous. Not the

This book is a continuation of book #3 in the series. I didn't write a review for the other book because I was sooo invested with Tyler and Marguerite.

I can say that this book touch me deeply. There are things that made me want to grab the characters and hold them and then there were times when I wanted to throw my tablet. I mean come on, how many animal references can there be in one book? That was the only down fall for this series to me.

One might think that the author played
5 Stars without a doubt! Absolutely loved the dynamic between Tyler and Marguerite. Thought provoking writing and multi-layered characters.

Love is not temporary. It endures everything even if it changes form. Even when it must be put away to handle harsher things, it's always there, ready to be called.
HOLY COW! I rarely give out 5-star ratings, but this book... it definitely deserves 5 stars, IMO. I'm still recovering from finishing it. I must've gone through a box of tissues, and I'm still a wreck!

OK. So a few things: Some people will HATE this book. There is serious violence here, pointless revenge violence, too. Children are put at risk and traumatized. And that's not counting the BDSM stuff. There are no whippings, though.

Others will despair bec the prose is extremely purple, as in talk about The Soul, Destiny, God, Good and Evil, Desire, spiritual practices and beliefs. You know, capital letter feelings. And others will be offended/turned off by the subject matter. There is

I'm exhausted. That's all.
Just kidding. Seriously, I love Tyler so much. The author did a good job of balancing his compassion with his arrogance and dominance. There is no doubt he is one of the best Doms I've ever read in a BDSM book. His singular obsession in his pursuit of Marguerite was admirable as well as foolhardy. For Marguerite was a complex and severely broken woman. There were times when I wouldn't blame him if he gave up. I should be pissed at Marguerite, but after finding out what

This is the powerful conclusion to the love story of Tyler and Marguerite, so heed the warning above - you MUST read Ice Queen first. Since I just wrote a more lengthy review for that one, I'll try to be brief and say this was unforgettable and everything I could have hoped for. This is erotic ROMANCE - to say that these characters are soulmates is an understatement. Marguerite's horrifying past is revealed, and truly, she's the most damaged heroine I've ever read. But yet, she's also one of the ...more

So, so, so, so, so good! It's hard for me to not think of this and Ice Queen as the same book since they are in essence two parts of the same story. I really don't think I have ever fought harder for a hero/heroine to have a HEA. I laughed, I cried, I screamed, I got pissed off. I went through every human emotion possible, and all I can say is wow.

There have been very few books that have affected me like this, and I truly believe that these two books will be ones that I although I can't bring

I got this book at the same time as Ice Queen and I'm glad I did. They probably should have been one book, told in two parts. The first half of this book was kind of boring but the second half was great.
I would give Joey Hill 5 stars for the masterful way she handled the story of healing and rebirth of a person who had been tortured and damaged beyond what most people can bear. But I can't give the story 5 stars because it didn't hit me that way. I had to wade through too much verbiage to get

I loved this book. Actually Ice Queen and then this one. Mirror of My Soul was so moving. I had happy tears, sad tears, scared tears and anything and everything in between. It's quite the book that moves me the way this book did.

This will be one of those books that I will think about for a long time.

Part 2 of Ice Queen. Great book, but not for the faint of heart. BDSM with a lot of mind control. Love the ending.

A personal note:
I found out that some authors can captivate me no matter what I’m going through in life. Joey W Hill is one of those authors and in December, when I read Ice Queen and Mirror Of My Soul, I was immensely grateful for that! One of the main reasons I was compelled to read these connected books was the fact that Marguerite is the sister of David who is the leading man in A Witch’s Beauty (my all-time favorite read of JWH) His story was also a 5 star read for me.

My thoughts on Mirror of My Soul are basically the same as my thoughts on the previous book in this series (Ice Queen): It's an emotionally intense and extremely graphic story with a captivating narrative that makes the reader feel truly connected to the beautifully written characters on so many levels.

In order to be able to appreciate this story - you will definitely need to be ok with characters who are barely hanging on and who have had abusive backgrounds. You'll also need to be ok with

Rating: 9/10

- Extraordinarily deep and multi-dimensional characterization. This book and its prequel, Ice Queen, contain the most complex characters I’ve ever encountered in a romance novel, erotic or not. And every action, every habit, every thought, and just about every word out of the characters’ mouths is consistent with the sort of person performing/saying it.
