"Without a doubt, The Mirror of Doom is the most delightful children's story I have read in some time, with three squabbling children, none of whom possess an ounce of responsibility, suddenly realizing that they have to trust and rely on each other in order to survive. I recommend The Mirror of Doom to all readers who enjoy fun, action, sci-fi, fantasy, and a major dose of comedy in their magical adventures." -- Readers' Favorite
My name is Tim Hunter. I've spent the last few days stuck in a medieval world. I've been ambushed by a bunch of Robin Hood wannabes, attacked by enemy soldiers, chased by scary creatures that want to eat me, and nearly fried to crisp by a dragon.
How did I get into this mess? Uncle Edgar. The guy's a nut burger. He pushed me through a mirror that was a portal to this other world. Yeah, pushed. Who pushes a 12-year-old kid through a mirror into another world? That's just wrong. The dude is definitely one sandwich short of a picnic.
So, I'm stuck here with my older brother and sister. And we can't go home until we deliver a kingdom from an evil queen. The evil queen. Snow White's nasty stepmother.
Crazy, right? I wouldn't trust us to deliver a pizza.
Besides, no one told us about the enemy soldiers, dragons, and stuff that would want to kill us.
Our odds of getting home in one piece? Not good. Not good at all...
What Readers are Saying...
"Surprisingly delightful book! The self-centered sassy tone of the 12-year-old narrator immediately drew me into the story, and it's interesting to see how the character's attitude matures once he falls headlong (or is pushed headlong, actually) into his adventure."
"Filled with non-stop adventure & good clean fun! Sibling rivalry abounds as they join forces with others in a seemingly impossible quest. Great way to show young folks that you can "rise to the occasion" when needed & accomplish more than you ever expected. The book leaves you wanting more!"
"Engaging from start to finish! Well done and very entertaining for my eleven year old daughter and myself."
