More About the Author
After working as a computer geek for 20 years, Bryan followed a dream to become an author. He began by writing a story to motivate his seven children to gain some excitement about writing, and that story grew into a novel. After spending the next eight years learning the craft and enduring more than 200 rejections from publishers and agents, he broke through with his best-selling series Dragons in our Midst. He is now a full-time author and lives with his wife, Susie, and their children in western Tennessee.
Bryan's novels have been readily accepted in schools worldwide, whether public, Christian (Protestant or Catholic), Jewish, or otherwise. Such is their wide appeal. For more information, see his website - http://www.daviscrossing.com

When I finished reading Beyond the Reflection's Edge the first time, I was blown away by the intricacies of the plot and characters. All I can say is "Wow."
Sixteen-year-old Nathan Shepherd has an unusual life traveling the world with his investigator father, his world-renowned violinist mother, and his personal tutor. Something goes wrong at a concert in Chicago that results in the death of his parents. Nathan moves to a small town to live with a childhood friend of his father's and his teenage daughter Kelly. He takes little with him: his mother's violin and the Quattro mirror his father had insisted he keep safe.
As Nathan tries to adapt to his new life, he discovers that his small mirror is the missing piece of a wall-sized mirror in his new bedroom. Once the mirror is whole, Nathan stumbles onto a mystery. The mirror shows him things. But are they his dreams? the future? or a different world? Could his parents still be alive? Nathan and Kelly must work together to figure it all out.
Wow. This was a completely unexpected and unique story. I've read a few books before that deal with different dimensions, and although this one did get a bit confusing, it was much easier to understand for this non-science girl. I liked Nathan's character a lot. This world needs a lot more "perfect gentlemen." I also really enjoyed how the plot kept unfolding. I sort of saw the ending coming, but I didn't know how Bryan Davis was going to get us there. Overall, this was a really entertaining, fast-paced story. My kind of book. My kind of unique plot. My kind of story. Highly recommended.
That being said I did enjoy the Christian ideals set forth by Nathan and his parents, and the beautiful language used to describe God's beauty in the world.
This is one of those books that I could not get my eyes to travel fast enough to find out what was coming next. There we...more Yesterday afternoon, when I decided to get ahead by reading this book, I wasn't sure what to expect. Most of the reviews I had read so far were brief and all stating the wonders of this book and this author in general. The first chapter was a little odd and I was a little confused. But as I read more, more was able to sink in and I was able to understand what was going on.
This is one of those books that I could not get my eyes to travel fast enough to find out what was coming next. There were times when I had to go back and re-read a passage, just because it was too much. I've never been much of a fiction sci-fi person outside of TV shows and movies, but this was better than any TV show and any movie that I have ever seen.
There was spy action, there was holistic attitudes, and morals! Suspense and thrilling twists... An under lying message, and even just plain good human interaction and relationships of people to each other.
I'm extremely glad that I have now been introduced into the works of Bryan Davis and I must say that I'm excited for more. I especially cannot wait until this fall when book two comes out Eternity's Edge!
At first, the characters (Kelly and Daryl especially) bugged me because I'm homeschooled and I was never exposed to people like them. But now I know that they do exist... There aren't just sweet, little "Bonnies" in this world.
The plot was very confusing, but that was good because the book really makes you think. I got through it in less than a day and finished the second book the next day. I'm reading the third one now. Fantastic, purely fantastic!
The book leaves me walking around and thinking, "Hey, I wonder if she's from earth blue... Is that Misty Red?" of course, I know that it is all fiction, but my mind just suddenly thought of that.
I love the characters and the idea and the plot dearly! Truly one of Davis' most suspensful and mysterious series' yet!
