From the Back Cover

Sixteen-year-old Nathan Shepherd has a great life traveling where the careers of his father, an investigator, and mother, a renowned violinist, take him … until his parents are found murdered. Left with only a mirror and notes from his father’s last case, Nathan goes into hiding at the remote country home of Tony, his father’s college buddy, and Tony’s teenage daughter, Kelly. The mysterious mirror must be a clue to what happened to his parents, and when images appear in it—people and things that don’t exist—Nathan and Kelly painstakingly gather evidence. But the killers want the mirror too, and danger threatens the teens at every turn. As it becomes evident that Nathan’s father had stumbled upon dark forces at work in the world, several questions arise. Could it be that the mirror is a portal to a parallel world? Could this technology be used for evil purposes? And could his parents still be alive, trapped in another dimension? Nathan and Kelly struggle to solve the mystery before they too become victims. This chilling, hair-raising adventure is jam-packed with action in a fantastical world where nothing is as it seems, and even mirrors tell lies. --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.

Three different earths, three different dimensions, each spiraling out of control as the weave that holds the dimensions begins to crumble. With Beyond the Reflection's Edge, Bryan Davis has penned a tale that readers of his previous works couldn't have anticipated. Starting out fast, the book never slows down until the last turn of the page. A worthy read for all lovers of science fiction and contemporary fantasy.

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."

Review by Jill Williamson

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.

I really tried to like this book. However, I found it very hard to follow, with the multiple changing characters, and jumping from place to place. I had to draw a diagram to keep the good guys and the bad guys straight. I did finish the book and was very disappointed with an ending that left too many unanswered questions. I found the main character a little "too good to be true", at one point in the story he asks himself if he can overcome the "past" of the female lead. The only past mentioned was that the girl made the mistake of wearing a low-cut dress and liked the attention it brought. A little unrealistic for this day and age.

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.

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.

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!

This book is fantastic! Very confusing, but definitely fantastic!
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!
