I just loved this the second time around as well that I had to round my rating up! I just have so much love for Ophelia and Thorn ❤️

Original review:

I loved this ! This book continued on from the first one and I actually preferred this over the first installment. Here, Ophelia is still trying to understand the Citaceleste and the inhabitants from the Pole. Not only that, she now has to deal with the whole of her charismatic and overbearing family coming to the Pole to keep an eye on her.

Michael Finocchiaro
Extraordinary storytelling and so full of surprises! Ophélie is a great heroine! Loved this 2nd of 4! The world of the Pôle is one of treachery and hypocrisy (why does that feel so relevant just now?) and Ophélie is working hard to survive and learn as things change and the mystery of Dieu continues to unfold. Archibald is a fantastic character (not just because I named my kid with that same name though!) and we get to hang with Renard and Gaëlle some more as well. And excellent followup to the ...more

Thank you to Edelweiss and the publisher for giving me an advanced copy for an honest review.

It's official: I am now declaring this series as one of my favorites. When I was approved for an eARC of A Winter's Promise last year, I didn't expect it to steal my heart as it did. At first, all the talk of Rupture and the atmospheric writing confused me so much. The protagonists also seemed so unconventional—Ophelia is a clumsy and timid Animist capable of "reading" any object she touches and Thorn

There’s positives and negatives to getting advance copies for review: you get the story early, yes, BUT YOU ALSO HAVE TO WAIT LONGER FOR THE NEXT BOOK 😭😭😭 why didn’t I study French in school just so I could read this series in its original language fml

I am incredibly enchanted by this series. It’s so different: the worldbuilding is so unique, a blend of beauty and steampunk that’s reminiscent of Ghibli works; the writing is gorgeously translated into illust

I don’t know what it is about this series that keeps me feverishly tearing through pages but it’s working.

I can only describe this series in question form:

-I can muse perhaps that’s it’s akin to Harry Potter without being Harry Potter at all??
-It feels middle grade while not being middle grade at all?

It’s just something. Something of its own. With intriguing characters. It’s not the ✨cruel-boy I enjoy hurting myself on✨ plot that I hoped for but I still love what’s going on between the two i

Grand Prix de l'Imaginaire for Young Adults 2016. Dabos’ second book in the internationally popular Mirror Visitor fantasy series provides wonderful continuity to the story readers were introduced to in A Winter’s Promise. French author Dabos has fun building this fantastical world that her heroine Ophelia has to navigate through. The plot is filled with animists, dragons, immortals, invisibles, nihilists, and Valkyries. They all inhabit a shard of planetary substance—the Ark of Citaceleste, and ...more

Mindblowing and fascinating, I have no words. This book might be the best one I’ve read so far this year. WOW.

Ce n’était pas Thorn qui avait besoin d’elle. C’était elle qui avait besoin de Thorn. Ophélie se plongea corps et âme dans le miroir.

Every damn chapter has its importance. The main characters are amazing, Ophelie is just so excellent!
This story is so inventive, it blows my mind. The creativity is on a Harry Potter level to me for sure. Speechless.
I’m a mess full of emotions right now.

The Buzz

I LOVED the first book, A Winter's Promise when I read it last year. I was eagerly watching for The Missing of Clairdelune and its release date. YAY, it's finally here!!

Since this was originally a French book and had to be translated it really is almost like an indie book. The author isn't well known in America... but she totally should be! I really hope others can jump on the bandwagon and help me spread the love.

I actually enjoyed this instalment more, if not by much, than its predecessor. The mystery was intriguing, there was astonishing character growth and I love the turn Thorn's and Ophelia's relationship is taking. Yet, I'm not so sure what to think about this "God" revelation, it just seems to be a bit much. Still, I was full of anxiety reading the whole aftermath of this book, and now I really need to read the third book!

After reading the first book of this saga, I thought the setting was charming, but the plot (which a friend of mine described as a never-ending introduction) scant and scarcely enticing. This second book has had me take such critique back. starting off on the backburner, there was a moment I was about to give it up. Then, something changed and the book turned abruptly into a real page-turner. Now, I’m craving for a film adaptation.

Do you know this feeling when you know that a book you’re reading will become a favourite? When you wake up, eat, sleep, breath...constantly thinking about this book. When you love the characters and the world so much you just want to jump into those pages and live there too?
That’s what this book was like for me.

I loved this even more than the first book. This might be due to the fact that we got SOO many Thorn scenes. But just MAYBE, OKAY?! 👀

Read 3: honestly this book is perfection, each time I’ve read it I’ve noticed more and more detail and I haven’t been this excited for a sequel in years. Bring on September!

Read 2: 6 months to wait for the next one! I can’t believe it’s set almost three years after this cliffhanger of an ending.

Read 1: The first one was perfect and this was ten thousand times better. Best books I’ve read in a long time. Why do I have to wait until May to get my hands on the next one?!

This was SO good - I think I still have a preference for the first book but as much as I tried to give this one 4 stars or 4.5 stars my fingers would just not let it go lol so 5 stars it is. I do think that the way this book made me feel while reading the last page was characteristic of my 5 star reviews. Most of the characters have really grown on me and I just feel very emotional knowing that I am not going to read the 3rd book straight away. This is a beautiful story with very well written ch ...more

Ophelia is such a great main character and seeing Thorn’s exterior begin to thaw around her was so interesting to read about. One of the best second books in a series that I’ve read!

Reading this is like watching a Studio Ghibli movie! If there had been illustrations? Holy shit.

I am all for this world-building, and the characters are so fun and freaky, again, like a Studio Ghibli movie!My greatest gripe is that the mystery doesn’t grab me at all; I need more suspense, a little more atmosphere and va-va-voom to get me on edge and desperate for the next page with this kind of a story that’s more focused on plot than character exploration.

And while ‘fun and freaky’, the charac

i liked this one better than the first one. Ophelia finally stood up and thorn melted a bit. Took them long enough. Ophelia started to actually stand up for herself every once in awhile in this book which was something that annoyed me a little in the first book. The plot twists and the pacing were pretty good.

I have been surprised by just how much I have loved The Mirror Visitor Quartet series by Christelle Dabos.

A Winter’s Promise (the first book in the series) was stunning and I found The Missing of Clairedelune to be equally compelling. Although, it was a bittersweet read for me; I couldn’t gulp down the story fast enough, but at the same time I didn’t want to finish and leave Dabos's dazzling fantastical storyworld.

The world building in this series is phenomenal. And the female protagonist, Oph
I probably would have given The Missing of Clairdelune four stars if I had read it in a shorter amount of time. Because I was passively picking it up for over a month, I found it to be somewhat slow. It may just be that I had been reading it for so long that I lost interest at times. But I will say that if you have read and enjoyed the first book, A Winter's Promise, you are sure to enjoy this one as well. It's just definitely the type of book that you will want to read in a week or so.

This was even better than book one (which I thought was already wonderful!!).

I think the level of plot action in this book significantly increased from book one - this had me on the edge of my seat way sooner, and had me gasping at some of the twists at the very end! I think because the world and characters were so well set up in the first book, we really got to dive deeper into their intricacies and the relationships a lot more.

What is common to both is the massive plot cliffhanger each ends wi

This book, I devoured. I found myself staying up far too late, twirling its pages until my eyes were mere slits. The story even showed up in my dreams, that's how enthralled I was into it all. It's going to be hard waiting for the third book (I've placed it on a library hold, and it's going to take weeks), but I seriously CANNOT wait to continue on with the story, full of dark twists, and exciting turns. ...more
