The third in the Dark Mirror series focuses on Napoléon’s attempted invasion of England in 1804 as Tory, Allarde, and their friends learn more about harnessing their magic in service of their country, both in their own time and in 1940, where Rebecca is developing her magic—a powerful force against anti-Semitism. Allarde and Tory face personal challenges as their pledge to one another risks Allarde’s title and inheritance. Though this series continues to rely on exposition-filled dialogue, the action-packed sequences, historical romance, and touches of magic will continue to entice paranormal readers.
