The Last Huntress: Mirror Realm Series (Book I) by Lenore Borja

The Last Huntress: Mirror Realm Series (Book I) by Lenore Borja

DESCRIPTION

Alice Daniels has a problem.

Her reflection keeps misbehaving when she looks in the mirror—and the longer she ignores it, the harder it tries to get her attention.

On her eighteenth birthday, she learns why: she is a huntress, someone gifted with the power to enter mirrors and the magical world that exists beyond. But with this power comes immense responsibility, for in the Mirror Realm lurks an evil that has infected the human race for centuries: demons. It is up to her and her three huntress sisters—with the help of one handsome and overbearing protector—to hunt and banish this evil one demon at a time, thereby keeping the chaos in check.

But when an ancient god pays Alice a visit that turns deadly, it is clear the Mirror Realm is more than it seems, and she soon finds herself in a race against time to save the life—and soul—of the one man the gods are determined to never let her have.

The Last Huntress is a story of redemption and sacrifice, the bonds of true sisterhood, and the impossible, sometimes frightening, things we’ll do for love.

My Review

Reading the blurb I’m thinking it’s a retelling of Alice through the looking glass. But it’s not, there are a few similarities, but maybe that was just me.

Alice can control mirrors!

Fancy a change of scenery, walk through a mirror. But it’s not that simple as we find out in the book.

Alice has never trusted a mirror, her reflection can’t be trusted, it looks back at her distorted or even oddly sometimes!

But all that becomes apparent when she discovers her hidden power (or curse!) she can move into a different world/realm just by walking through a mirror, there is also the fact you can leap incredibly high, or even fly in this realm.

But it’s not all sunshine and rainbows. There is a dark force that wants the mirror realm for its self, and it will do anything to achieve this.

I really enjoyed the story. Loved the interaction with her sisters, I enjoyed the banter and almost instant attraction between her and her guardian/protector.

It’s a little confusing at times, and we are just meant to accept all the things thrown at Alice, the lack of information in some instances (the bond between sisters needed a little more information)

I don’t want to give too much away as it is a good story, a few little hiccups won’t really take away from this book.

There are a few twists I didn’t see coming. There are also moments in the book I wanted to shout at the characters (and the author) and there are times in the story I just wanted to scoop Alice up and give her a big cuddle.

Is there a HEA (happy ever after) in this book I hear you ask? Well….. nope!! Not telling you, but I will say that I wasn’t expecting it to go down the way it did 🤫

The mirror realm is fascinating. It’s full of wonderful and sometimes scary characters. The demons are the characters your going to be booing,

It’s touted as a YA (young adult) read, and it’s said it’s aimed at them.

It’s a book filled with adventure/mystery and a splash of magic. And don’t forget the romance 😉

I’m hoping this isn’t the last we see of the mirror realm.

I’m definitely adding this author to my list.
