After reading this I don’t fancy looking in a mirror anytime soon.
Wonderfully wicked this short novella is perfect for a dark winter’s night during a storm. DJ Shaw has wrote a tale that wraps your fears around you and releases them in a brilliant bone chilling tale of how what you fear can be so much worse than what you think.
The lights suddenly went out, causing me to jump. There were no warning flickers, no big bang, no thunder or flashes o ...more

This author is extremely good at writing a book that tends to go to the dark side that most people either believe or ignore what is either superstitious or true to the trained or untrained eye. I was enchanted and extremely addicted to this story from beginning to end, and I also could relate to this story, because I believe in another alternate world full of evil.

Although I like the concept, I think this story would have been better suited as a novella. I understand the need to tell the story - and back story - quickly, but I felt rushed.

I would definitely recommend this book to a ...more
with you! oh and you might want to cover up any mirrors you may have ;)
Terry should have listened to Rissa, maybe things wouldn't have gotten so bad?
On that note this is a quick though suspensful read. If you like scary this
will take you there.
Probably the best thing about this story is that it's short. On the other hand it could have been a whole lot shorter, it's not like there's anything original going on here, it's a very well worn plot (view spoiler)["the things you think you see out of the corner of your eye in the mirror are real and want out, but need to swap places with something to get there". (hide spoiler)]
One minute the main character doesn't know what's going on, the next she has known all about it for years. The ending...more
